Old Epsomian Nat Sciver Bags Two Top Awards

OE Nat Sciver has this week been named the Professional Cricketers’ Association’s Player of the Year, just days after winning the equivalent title from the Cricket Writers’ Club. 

The Professional Cricketers’ Awards are voted for by professionals and were handed out at a ceremony in London on Thursday evening. This is the second time that Sciver has won the award – after first claiming the title in 2017. 

On accepting her award, Nat said: 

“Thank you to everyone who voted for me to win the women’s Player of the Year Award, I am really honoured. As cricketers we are perfectionists and often remember the negative things that have happened, so it’s hard to remember all the good things but there have been some great memories and highlights. I’ve been really happy with my form this year.” 

And there have been plenty of highlights this year. Sciver hit two hundreds in the 50-over World Cup in the early part of the year, her first Test century against South Africa in June and then notched 228 runs in six innings in The Hundred while playing for Trent Rockets, with her runs in that competition coming at an average of 76.
