Tammy Beaumont won the women’s headline honour at the 2023 cinch PCA Awards, being named as cinch PCA Women’s Player of the Year.

England opening batter Beaumont rounded off a fantastic run-scoring summer by winning her second cinch PCA Women’s Player of the Year award, after first receiving the trophy in 2016.

Held in East London, the cinch PCA Awards were attended by 500 guests, including current and former players, partners and stakeholders, to celebrate the 54th edition of the most prestigious awards ceremony in English and Welsh cricket.

Beaumont proved once again she is a world-leading opening batter, scoring a brilliant double hundred in the Metro Bank Women’s Ashes Test match and becoming the first woman to hit a century in The Hundred.

The 32-year-old finished as the second leading run scorer in the 100-ball format with 290.

Beaumont succeeds Sciver-Brunt who won the 2022 accolade, finishing above last year’s winner, Southern Vipers skipper Georgia Adams and South East Stars Bryony Smith in the vote.

cinch PCA Women’s Player of the Year, Tammy Beaumont, said: “I’m really pleased to win it, I was shocked just to be nominated with lots of players having really good individual summers in Nat, Georgia and Bryony.

“I’m very grateful that my peers have voted for me and I think that’s what makes the PCA Awards so special because it’s voted for by your teammates and opposition.

“I tend not to look at my statistics, yes the double hundred was nice but we didn’t win that game, so I should have got more in the second innings but I’m very proud of that achievement.

“I actually found that doing commentary in The Hundred for Sky Sports was quite a nice escape from the playing schedule, I’m a cricket badger so I love doing commentary but I’m not retiring any time soon – playing is still number one for me.

“Going forward I just want to be the best that I can and contribute to every team that I play in in a positive way.”

 Funds raised throughout the evening went directly to the Professional Cricketers’ Trust, the players’ charity that provides support for PCA members and their immediate families when they need it most.

PCA Chief Executive, Rob Lynch, said: “This year was a momentous one for the game. To be able to celebrate all our winners at the most prestigious awards ceremony in cricket was the perfect end to a summer to remember. Congratulations to the four main award winners at this year’s cinch PCA Awards, all of them performed at an inspiring level and are deserving of their prizes.

“Well done to all award winners from this season, your phenomenal performances have helped make this an unforgettable summer.”
