Tammy Beaumont

Born March 11th 1991 in Dover, Kent, current Test, ODI and T20I player for England, Tammy Beaumont began her international career as a wicket keeper.

In March 2021 she averaged 231 with the bat in the ODI series against New Zealand. It was a dominant performance by the opening batter which she carried on into the T20 series where she was the only player from either team to top 100 runs. She was named Player of the Series in both formats.

Tammy made her debut for Kent in 2007, the National Schools Gymnastics Champion an ideal wicket keeper for her county and in 2009 was selected for England as a replacement for Sarah Taylor on a tour to West Indies. She batted at number ten in her debut, just above Isa Guha.

It took until 2011/12 for Tammy to bat higher than number eight in the order when she is opening the batting with Charlotte Edwards. It does take some time to settle into that spot but by 2017 she is the player of the tournament in the ODI World Cup. Along the way with Sarah Taylor she scored the highest partnership in World Cup history of 275.

A Test debut came in 2013, and has since chalked up a total of seven Test appearances for England.
