England unearthed a gem in Joe Root, Dale Steyn knew it was business as usual, Mahendra Singh Dhoni racked up all sorts of records, Johnson Charles filled a big pair of boots, Shane Watson answered his doubters and more.
India's success against England earned them four caps in this month's XI, while New Zealand's ability to upstage South Africa is reflected in Kane Williamson's selection, and Phil Hughes and Suresh Raina quickly set themselves apart from the rest.
Apologies for the delay in transmission, but the World Twenty20 has been the dominant factor at Cricket365 Towers lately. But now, let's look back at the performances in September and pick a team of stars.
Graeme Smith makes up the numbers at the top of the knock, Darren Bravo impresses through the middle order, Ravichandran turns the tables on Harbhajan Singh and Pat Cummins and Vernon Philander announce their arrival on the Test stage.
There was a lot of cricket on the go this month, with October's XI pretty representative of the successful teams. No surpise, then, that India stars line the ranks.
