On Tuesday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the nominees for the ICC Player of the Month Awards for the month of February to recognize the best performances from both male and female cricketers across all forms of international cricket. In this article, we look at the ICC Women’s Player of the Month Feb Nominees.
ICC Women’s Player of the Month Feb Nominees: Tammy Beaumont (ENG), Brooke Halliday (NZ), Nat Sciver (ENG)
In the world of women’s international cricket, the England tour of New Zealand was the solitary series that was played in February. Thus, the three players nominated from either of the sides.
About ICC Women’s Player of the Month February Nominees:

She also went on to become just the fourth woman to score half-centuries in each of her first two ODI matches.
