The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the winner list of ICC awards 2017 along with the skipper of both (men) ICC Test and ODI teams.

The vice-captain of English women cricket team Anya Shrubsole, who had stolen many hearts with her consoling gesture towards the Proteas skipper in the semi-final of Women’s World Cup 2017 between England and South Africa, won the ICC Spirit of Cricket award at the world governing body’s annual prize giving event.

After hitting winning runs for her team, Anya Shrubsole went to comfort the South African skipper Dane van Niekerk.

ICC took it to their official Twitter handle and wrote, “An enduring and iconic moment of sportsmanship following a gripping Women’s World Cup semi-final  @Anya_shrubsole.”

 

 

Anya Shrubsole’s action towards their opponent team is often compared with Andrew Flintoff and Brett Lee’s consoling moment during the 2005 Ashes.
