ICC revealed its player of the month for November. England skipper, Jos Buttler won the contest, beating his peers to be ICC player of the month.

Jos Buttler led the England cricket team to win the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 on Australian soil. They beat the likes of India and Australia to reach the finals. After missing out on a couple of matches owing to rain, their qualification scenario was not a cakewalk. They had to fight really hard for the second position in Group A.

However, after that semi-final spot was booked, there was no looking back for the England team. They were slated to meet tournament favorites India in the semi-finals. England did a good job with the ball, but India managed a defendable total of 168. But what England was about to do in the chase was unreal. Nobody saw it coming. The opening duo of Jos Buttler and Alex Hales unleashed absolute carnage and chased down 170 without losing a single wicket.
