Last month, an unknown cricket star from France, Gustav McKeon, became the first cricketer to score two consecutive centuries in T20 Internationals. McKeon has now made it to the shortlist of the ICC's July Player of the Month. Apart from McKeon, England's star cricketer Jonny Bairstow and Sri Lanka's young left-arm spinner Prabhath Jayasuriya are in the list.
Bairstow has been shortlisted for the ICC Player of the Month for his brilliant performance in the fifth Test of the series against India. This English batsman brought victory to the team by batting well in both innings of the match. Bairstow scored 106 runs from 140 balls in the first innings of that Test. England left the field with a great victory thanks to his unbeaten 114 runs from the bat in the next innings.
Meanwhile, the young Sri Lankan spinner Jayasuriya, who made his international Test debut last month, also got a place in the ICC Player of the Month race due to his excellent bowling against Pakistan. This bowler has the feat of taking 6 wickets for 118 runs and 6 wickets for 59 runs against Australia. Besides, Jayasuriya took five wickets for 82 runs and four wickets for 135 runs in the first Test against Pakistan. And in the two innings of the second Test against the same opponent, this spinner's bowling figures were 3/80 and 5/117 respectively.
