Lamichhane beat left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed of Bangladesh and United States batsman Jaskaran Malhotra to become the ICC Player of the Month for September.

Knight had played an instrumental role to thrash New Zealand during the ODI series in England.
She scored 214 runs at an average of 42.80 and was also tidy with the ball, scalping three wickets at an economy of 4.66.
Her two classy showings with the bat came in the first and the fourth ODIs. She played an innings of 89 in the first match while notching up a magnificent century in the fourth contest, with a knock of 101. As the captain, her tactical decisions were also on point, as England won the five-match series 4-1.
