Tasmania English import Heather Knight has taken out the Female Player of the Month award for December, after receiving a resounding 34.88% of the vote, ahead of Queensland's Grace Harris (13.95%) and VicSpirit all-rounder Nicole Bolton (9.30%).

After four WT20 matches the opener amassed 160 runs at 53.33, while collecting 97 WNCL runs at 48.50 in two WNCL appearances.

She also managed to snag two WT20 wickets at 36.50.

Nine fours were hit on the way to a match-winning 55-ball 70 that handed Tasmania an upset victory over the VicSpirit in their WT20 clash.

She was at it again against reigning champions New South Wales just one week later, smashing 78 to lead the Roar to another shock win, where Tasmania managed to grind out a gutsy 23-run WNCL win at Manly Oval.

She also starred in Tasmania's narrow nine-run WT20 loss to NSW, where she struck 66 (60) to be handed player of the match honours.
