Tammy Beaumont

First up is Tammy Beaumont from England. Beaumont’s awe-inspiring performance during the sole Ashes Test in Nottingham has earned her a well-deserved spot on the shortlist. Despite England’s defeat at the hands of an inspired Ashleigh Gardner-led Australian team, Beaumont’s record-breaking innings of 208 runs proved to be a shining beacon of hope. This remarkable achievement in 331 balls marked a historic milestone as she became the first English woman to register a Test double hundred. With her sights set on clinching her first ICC Player of the Month crown since February 2021, Beaumont has truly made her mark.

Ashleigh Gardner

Next on the list is the talented Ashleigh Gardner from Australia. Having already claimed the ICC Women’s Player of the Month award in December and February, Gardner is no stranger to recognition. However, this time she has earned her nomination for her exceptional performance in the longest format of the game.

Gardner’s ruthless display of bowling prowess in both innings against England played a crucial role in securing victory for Australia. Her impressive figures of four wickets for 99 in the first innings included the prized scalp of Tammy Beaumont, along with other dangerous players. Gardner then went on to dazzle the hosts with match-winning figures of eight for 66 in the second innings. With this outstanding display, Gardner hopes to add another accolade to her growing list of achievements.

Hayley Matthews

Completing the trio of remarkable players is Hayley Matthews from the West Indies. Matthews, a previous ICC Women’s Player of the Month award winner in November 2021, showcased her immense talent during the rain-affected series against Ireland at Gros Islet. In the first One Day International (ODI), she displayed a scintillating all-round performance, scoring a splendid century of 109 runs off just 106 balls. Her remarkable batting display was followed by an impressive bowling spell, where she claimed three crucial wickets for 53 runs. Matthews’ outstanding contributions ensured a commanding victory for her team.

As anticipation builds for the announcement of the winners, cricket enthusiasts and fans alike eagerly await the outcome of the ICC Women’s Player of the Month awards for June 2023. With Tammy Beaumont, Ashleigh Gardner, and Hayley Matthews standing out for their exceptional performances, the competition will surely be fierce.
