The 23-year-old player’s best bowling figures in her career come from the second match against Pakistan where she had 4/32 bowling 8 overs.

Chamari Athapaththu (Sri Lanka)

The spinner led the side to a stunning victory in the series against England at the start of the month. She wasn’t impressive with her batting performance in the ODI series but came up with an outstanding performance in T20Is.
