The year 2021 is drawing to a close. The year saw some memorable as well forgettable performances by top teams and players. India began the year in brilliant fashion, registering their second consecutive Test series triumph in Australia with a famous win at the Gabba. They also secured a 2-1 lead in England before the fifth Test was cancelled. On the other hand, India went down in the World Test Championship final and crashed out of the T20 World Cup early. Australia lifted their maiden men’s T20 World Cup title while Pakistan had a memorable year but faltered in the T20 World Cup semis. New Zealand lifted the WTC title but were runners-up in the T20 World Cup. In our year-end recap, we look at the top five cricketers of 2021.

ACTIVISM

MARYAM and NIVAAL REHMAN became activists when they were eight years old, inspiring girls in their village in Pakistan to continue their education. The now 19-year-old twins have since worked for such causes as girls’ education, climate justice, gender equality and inclusivity. They have their own non-profit, The World With MNR, that uses advocacy, storytelling and development to take action and inspire others to do the same. They have used their social media and YouTube channels to cover several events, including the Social Good Summit in New York City, the Girl Up Leadership Summit in Washington D.C., and interviews with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, and Madame Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank. They have received several awards, including the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award. Recently they released a documentary on the status of girls’ education in Pakistan and held global screenings to spark further conversation and inspire action.
