October 10

Harmanpreet Kaur has been named the ICC Women’s Player of the Month for September 2022 for her outstanding performance in the ODI series against England.

Kaur prevailed over her Indian teammate, opener Smriti Mandhana, and Bangladesh captain Nigar Sultana, who also produced outstanding performances.

After her win, Harmanpreet stated, “It was great to be nominated for the award and to win it is an amazing feeling. To come out as a winner when being nominated alongside Smriti and Nigar is very humbling.

“I have always taken immense pride in representing my country and achieving the historic ODI series win in England will remain a landmark moment for me in my career.

“The game of cricket is blessed to have some of the finest athletes on the sporting circuit and to be chosen the ICC Women’s Player of the Month amongst them is a special recognition for me as an individual and the captain of the Indian cricket team.”

Kaur had a memorable month not just as a batter but also as the captain of the Indian team, leading India to a 3-0 ODI whitewash over England. This was India’s first series win in England since 1999.

Harmanpreet led by example during the series and finished as the highest run-getter with 221 runs at an average of 221 and a strike rate of 103.27. She played the role of the finisher to perfection in the first two games.

In the first ODI, her well-paced innings of 74* guided India to a win while chasing 228. She followed that up with a splendid 143* off just 111 balls in the second ODI, her second-highest score in the 50-over format.
