Tammy Beaumont & Daniel Bell-Drummond nominated for PCA awards

Kent openers Tammy Beaumont and Daniel Bell-Drummond have both been nominated for NatWestPCA Awards.

Dover-born batsman Beaumont is in contention for the Waitrose Women's Player of the Summer and Spitfires batsman Daniel Bell-Drummond is shortlisted for the NatWest Young Player of the Year.

Beaumont was a shining light during a record-breaking summer for England women. With scores of 70, 104 and 168 not out, her 342-run aggregate in the Royal London ODI series against Pakistan was the highest ever in the history of the game in a three-match ODI series (male or female).

The right-handed opener from Kent followed up this incredible run scoring tally by smashing a further 142 runs in the three-match NatWest IT20 series, to take her to international tally to 484 for the summer at an average of just under 100.

After a promising start to his career, 2016 was the year Bell-Drummond burst onto the scene opening the batting for Kent and the England Lions.

The 23-year-old has scored more than 1,700 runs in all formats including a mammoth 171 not out , his maiden List A century, for the Lions in their victory over Sri Lanka A at Canterbury, his home ground.

Bell-Drummond made his mark with a century against Australia in 2015 and launched the 2016 season with a maiden double century against the Loughborough students in April.

The right-hander helped Kent to the quarter-finals of the Royal London One-Day Cup and struck a maiden T20 century, 112, against Surrey in a group match at Tunbridge Wells.

The NatWest PCA Awards evening is an event run by the PCA and reflect on and honour the domestic season with all monies raised on the night going to the PCA Benevolent Fund charity.
