Anya wins ICC Spirit of Cricket Award

England, Western Storm and Somerset bowler Anya Shrubsole has picked up yet another award in what has been an incredible year for her.

The 26 year old has been recognised at the annual ICC Awards where she won the ICC Spirit of Cricket Award.

Anya received the accolade for consoling Dane van Niekerk after the ICC Women’s World Cup semi-final.

Instead of celebrating after hitting the winning runs in a highly dramatic match, Anya consoled a distraught van Nierkerk.

This moment of outstanding sportsmanship has already seen Anya receive the Christopher Martin-Jenkins Spirit of Cricket Award.

The winner of the Spirit of Cricket award is selected by the ICC’s elite umpires panel and chief executive.
