Stephanie Taylor: This Month’s ICC Female Player-July 2021
Taylor was a great performer in the West Indies in the Limited Overseries against Pakistan.
She was nominated for an award along with teammates Haley Matthews and Fatima Sana of Pakistan, but her all-round performance in her series helped her win the most votes.
With four ODIs against Pakistan, Taylor scored 175 runs with a strike rate of 79.18 and took three wickets economically at 3.72. He picked up four wickets at 25.25 and won a staggering 5.55 economy at the T20.
“It’s a little surprising to me to win the ICC Player Award this month in July, but I’m happy,” Taylor told ICC. “It shows that the effort you have spent will be rewarded, which helped us win the series against Pakistan. We played well in both formats.
“I’m playing Hand Red in England right now. This is another kind of tournament, I played at a faster pace, but I’m still working hard. I’m looking forward to the series with South Africa at home. I am aiming to win the championship. I am grateful to all the fans for their support, because I am always grateful.
