Barbadian all-rounder Deandra Dottin was the only West Indian player chosen on the ICC’s team of the year when the ruling body’s for cricket announced its top awards for the year in women’s cricket on Dec. 31, 2018.
Dottin was chosen as a player on the ODI team of the year and despite some brilliant performances in the recently concluded ICC World T20 tournament in the Caribbean, failed to get a spot on the ICC T20 team of the year.
No other West Indian player featured on any of the other teams that were chosen by a panel of international journalists.
India opener Smriti Mandhana was adjudged the ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year for 2018.
She was the leading run-getter in women’s ODI with 669 runs at an average of 66.90 and the third’s highest scorer in T20s with 622 runs at a strike rate of 130.67.
Mandhana was also been named the ICC Women’s ODI Player of the year.
