Three Asian players have been shortlisted for the ICC Women's Player of the Month Award for October 2022.
Nida Dar (Pakistan)
The all-rounder produced a spectacular performance for Pakistan in the Women's Asia Cup last month. Dar amassed 145 runs in six matches, at an average of 72.50, and also claimed eight wickets at a meagre 14.87 runs a piece.
This included a superb all-round show against India where she scored 56* and then went on to claim bowling figures of 2/23 to guide Pakistan to a memorable victory.
Dar performed consistently in a tough batting role for Pakistan throughout the tournament and also gave them breakthroughs whenever needed.
Deepti Sharma (India)
The all-rounder showed why she is such a vital cog in the Indian team once again, as she delivered an outstanding performance in the Women's Asia Cup last month.
Deepti played eight matches and claimed 13 wickets at a spectacular average of 7.69, which included top spells of 3/7 and 3/27 against Thailand and Pakistan, respectively.
She also played a superb knock of 64 to rescue India in the game against UAE, which sums up the kind of all-round impact she made in the team. Deepti was also adjudged as the Player of the Tournament for her all-round exploits.
Jemimah Rodrigues (India)
The 22-year-old turned out to be India's best batter in the Women's Asia Cup, paving their way to the title.
Rodrigues amassed 217 runs at a superb average of 54.25 during the course of the tournament. Her two outstanding knocks of 78 and 75* came against Sri Lanka and UAE, respectively.
India won both matches and she was also adjudged the Player of the Match in both games. Both of her knocks came in tricky situations and lifted India to a winning position.
