Seam-bowler Anya Shrubsole was the highest wicket-taker in international cricket last week, taking 12 wickets in three matches, and earns this week's award.
Shrubsole began by taking four for 21 in England's final group game against the West Indies; proceeded to take three for 24 and strike a valiant unbeaten 13 in the defeat to Australia; and concluded by returning career-best figures of five for 17 to help her side thrash South Africa.
Australia have added 23-year-old Queensland batsman Joe Burns to their Twenty20 International squad of their one-off game against world champions the West Indies in Brisbane on Wednesday (13th February).
Burns has been added as cover for Adam Voges, who suffered a hamstring injury after hitting his maiden century during Sunday's fifth and final One-Day International.
There were maiden international centuries from both Adam Voges and Johnson Charles in the fifth and final One-Day International between Australia and the West Indies, but it was Voges who emerged on the winning side as Australia secured the series whitewash.
Australia have been forced into making further changes to their One-Day International squad ahead of Sunday's fifth and final match against the West Indies in Melbourne.
Captain Michael Clarke is set to miss the game as a precautionary measure with a stiff right hamstring and Shaun Marsh replaces him in the squad.
Kieron Pollard scored an outstanding century - his second against Australia - but even that wasn't enough to prevent Australia sealing a five-wicket victory in the fourth match in Sydney.
Shane Watson was in good form again, scoring a half-century, as Australia moved into a 4-0 series lead with one match to play, further extending their record of not having lost an ODI at home to the West Indies since 1997.
Australia have called up uncapped fast bowlers Nathan Coulter-Nile and Josh Hazlewood as well as batsman Ben Rohrer for their Twenty20 International against the West Indies in Brisbane on 13th February.

Brad Haddin, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Adam Voges will be part of Australia's One-Day International squad for the fifth and final game against the West Indies in Melbourne on Sunday (10th February).

Australia left-arm fast bowler James Faulkner has been fined 10 percent of his match fee after breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the third One-Day International against the West Indies in Canberra.
Faulkner was clearly seen giving Chris Gayle a verbal send-off after dismissing him in the 38th over, and he pleaded guilty to the charge levelled against him.
Australia have added experienced Western Australia batsman Adam Voges to their One-Day International squad as cover for George Bailey.
Bailey, who scored his maiden ODI century in the second match against the West Indies in Perth, has a tight hamstring, picked up during Australia's 39-run win in the third match in Canberra.
The Manuka Oval provided a rather picturesque setting for Australia to move into an unassailable 3-0 One-Day International series lead over the West Indies with a 39-run win in Canberra.
Shane Watson marked his return to the side after a long absence due to injury with a reminder of exactly why he is so important to Australia, scoring 122 as they racked up 329 for seven before bowling the West Indies out for 290.
Dale Steyn's superb display of swing bowling in the first innings at the Wanderers is just enough for him to earn this week's award. He would go on to end with career-best match figures of 11 for 60 after taking another five wickets in Pakistan’s second innings to underline just why he is ranked by the ICC as Test cricket's leading bowler.
Shane Watson is poised to make his latest return from injury after being named in Australia's squad for the third and fourth One-Day Internationals against the West Indies.
He has been absent since the third Test against Sri Lanka, missing the five-match ODI series that followed, both Twenty20s and the first two matches of this series which were both won by Australia.
The West Indies won't be able to leave Perth quick enough after Australia handed them a second convincing defeat in three days to go 2-0 up in their five-match One-Day International series.
A maiden ODI century for George Bailey helped the hosts reach 266 for seven despite no other player passing 39 and five wickets from Mitchell Starc saw the West Indies dismissed for 212 in reply.
Australia needed a little more than two hours to hand the West Indies a crushing nine-wicket defeat in the first One-Day International in Perth.
Mitchell Starc took five for 20 as the tourists were bowled out for a dismal 70 and with Glenn Maxwell showing his full range of strokes at the top of the order, Australia raced to victory in just 9.2 overs.
Batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan last played international cricket in June 2011 but following his recall for the tour of Australia he has wasted in no time in getting among the runs, scoring 83 against the Prime Minister's XI.
Both sides scored over 300 runs before the Prime Minister's XI won by 23 runs, although Sarwan says that regardless of the result, the game served its purpose as preparation for the five-match ODI series.
Usman Khawaja has been drafted into Australia's One-Day International squad for the first two matches against the West Indies after David Warner fractured his thumb.

The Australian Prime Minister's XI beat the touring West Indians by 23 runs in a high-scoring one-day game at the Manuka Oval in Canberra.

Australia have named a 13-man squad for the first two One-Day Internationals against the West Indies in Perth on 1st and 3rd February.
Aaron Finch has replaced David Hussey as the National Selection Panel (NSP) has responded to disappointing batting performances during the recent 2-2 series draw with Sri Lanka.
Ramnaresh Sarwan last pulled on the maroon colours of the West Indies against India in June 2011. Now, some 18 months later, he has been recalled ahead of the tour of Australia.
Putting behind him the loss of his central contract and the loss of form that lost him his place, the former captain returns with an excellent season for Leicestershire in 2012 behind him, and he is delighted to have been given another chance.
A look at the West Indies squad to tour Australia for a series of five One-Day Internationals and a Twenty20 International in February.
