Gaby Lewis, Ireland
The star of the show for Ireland, as they won the T20I series against Scotland with a 3-1 margin. Lewis was the leading run-scorer in the series, accumulating 116 runs at an average of 29 and a strike rate of 116. She made telling contributions in the second and fourth T20Is, scoring 47 and 49 respectively.
Leah Paul, Ireland
