White Ferns skipper Sophie Devine and Black Caps all-rounder Glenn Phillips have been named in the ICC Twenty20 women’s and men’s teams of the year for 2022.

Devine topped the run charts in the format with 389 - and finished with joint-second-most wickets with 13.

She is nursing a stress fracture in her foot - but is expected to be fit for the White Ferns Twenty20 World Cup opener against Australia on February 11 at Cape Town.

Phillips displayed remarkable consistency once again in the shortest format, aggregating 716 runs in 21 matches at a strike rate of 156.33, including a century against Sri Lanka at the T20 World Cup.
