Bangladesh left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed has been nominated alongside Nepal leggie Sandeep Lamichhane and USA's power-hitter Jaskaran Malhotra for ICC's Player of the Month for September.

Nasum Ahmed was Bangladesh's star performer in their home T20I series against New Zealand, leaving the visitors bamboozled with his accurate line and length.

He picked up 8 wickets in the series with a sensational performance of 4/10 in the fourth match. His exploits helped the hosts to emerge victorious with a margin of 3-2 against the visitors.

Lamichhane's impressive performances in the ICC World Cup League 2, where he bagged 18 wickets in six ODIs, landed him a place in the list.

Jaskaran Malhotra of the USA, also had a month to remember. He became only the fourth player to hit six sixes in an over in an international fixture, during an unbeaten 173 against PNG in CWCL2.
