Beaumont’s Sydney Thunder win WBBL

Kent and England batter Tammy Beaumont has become the first Kent star to win Australia’s Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL).

Beaumont’s Sydney Thunder chased down Melbourne Stars’ modest total of 86/9 in just 13.4 overs, with the Kent Women captain scoring 16 from 15 balls opening the batting for the Thunder.

Overall in the tournament, the Kent right-hander scored 209 runs in 16 matches, also being an integral part of the Thunder’s fielding unit – her energy in the field and run outs in vital moments gave Sydney the edge over several opponents on their way to lifting the WBBL trophy.

Playing in her fourth WBBL tournament for her third franchise, Beaumont’s WBBL win with Sydney Thunder comes before Men’s Captain Sam Billings & Kent Spitfires overseas star Adam Milne play for the Thunder’s men’s team, with the Men’s BBL tournament starting in December.
