The September Player of the Month for each of their respective categories is Sri Lanka women's captain Chamari Athapaththu and star Indian opener Shubman Gill.

Prior to the major competition, Gill, who hasn't participated in a single match of the ongoing ODI World Cup, was in outstanding form as he scored significant and important runs in ODIs.

Gill won the award by defeating England opener Dawid Malan and teammate Mohammed Siraj. Gill had amassed 480 runs at an average of 80 in September's One-Day Internationals.

As the leading run scorer in the Asia Cup 2023, he contributed to the Indian team's record-tying eighth victory. Subsequently, he amassed 178 runs in the opening two innings of India's match against Australia, sealing the series before the World Cup was played at home.

During the Asia Cup, the right-hander amassed two centuries, one against Bangladesh (121) and another against Australia (104) in the second ODI.

However, Chamari Athapaththu has been through the same thing, defeating Laura Wolvaardt and Nadine de Klerk of South Africa to win the prize.

After assisting her team in winning an incredible series in England, Athapaththu had an unforgettable month.

She played a major role in Sri Lanka's victory, winning two of their three Women's T20I matches and capturing a series victory over England for the first time in any format.

After hitting 114 runs and claiming five wickets in two crucial Women's T20I victories against England to start the month, Athapaththu was named Player of the Series.

Against England, she scored important runs of 44 and 55 and bowled 1/11 and 3/21.

She was among the top scorers in the women's Asia Cup, which took place in September, when her team competed against Thailand, Pakistan, and India.

In September, she participated in five WT20I innings and three WODIs, scoring 208 runs at an average of 26, and claimed five wickets at an average of 26.6 in the white-ball formats.
