On being named the Player of the Month, Mathews said, "I am absolutely honoured and delighted to be the ICC Men's Player of the Month. I would like to congratulate Asitha Fernando and Mushfiqur Rahim who were front runners for this award, on their spectacular performances.

"I am grateful for the opportunity and I wish to thank the almighty, my teammates, support staff, and fans for believing in me and supporting me as always. I would like to dedicate this to the people of Sri Lanka. Let's never stop believing.

"JP Duminy, the former South Africa international and ICC Player of the Month voting panel member praised Mathews saying, "The great grit and determination that characterised Angelo's performances during the month has shown that he still has the hunger and desire to make the difference at the elite level."
