Player Biography

Kent-born Tammy Beaumont grew up playing cricket with her brother and father for Sandwich, and made her debut for her county in early 2007, batting at No. 5. The same year, she was named in the England Development Squad for the European Championship.

She was only 18 when she made her ODI and T20 debuts, and for several years combined international duty with a degree in Chemistry and Sports Science at Loughborough University.

Beaumont continued to make regular appearances for Kent through the 2008 and 2009 seasons, and scored her maiden century in August 2009, hitting 136 off 144 balls to help set up a 184 run victory for Kent against a visiting Surrey side.

Having been selected for the MCC Women’s Young Cricketers programme in 2012, she was one of the 18 players granted a professional contract in May 2014. She is also a Chance to Shine coaching ambassador.

Two successful tours as captain of the England Women’s Academy side, to Sri Lanka in February 2014 and to the UAE in April 2015, saw her selected by new coach Mark Robinson to open the batting in the 2016 World Twenty20. She blossomed across the tournament, hitting a total of 138 runs and picking up the Player of the Match award in England’s group stage victory against West Indies.

A phenomenal Summer against Pakistan followed, as she struck 484 runs across the ODI and T20 series, including her debut international century.

In March 2017 she was named as Kent Women Captain, a post she held until March 2024.

At the 2017 Women’s Cricket World Cup, Beaumont and Sarah Taylor scored the highest partnership for any wicket in Women’s Cricket World Cup history, scoring 275 against South Africa. During the same World Cup, she along with Nat Sciver set what was at the time the record 4th wicket partnership (170) in Women’s World Cup history. Beaumont went on to win the 2017 World Cup with England, and was voted player of the tournament, as the leading run-scorer, with 410 runs. Her contribution to England’s success was recognised when she was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2018 New Year Honours list.

In December 2017, she was named as one of the players in the ICC Women’s ODI Team of the Year.

Beaumont finished the 2018 season one of three names shortlisted for the NatWest England Women’s Player of the Summer, capping off an impressive home season for the Dover-born batter. She had hit her first ever International T20 hundred against South Africa in Taunton that March.

April of 2018 saw her become the fourth Kent player to receive 50 ODI caps for England, following from Charlotte Edwards, Lydia Greenway and her Kent teammate at the time, Laura Marsh.

In 2019, she was named as one of Wisden’s Five Cricketers of the Year for her performances throughout the previous calendar year – the second Kent Woman to receive the accolade after Edwards.

On the Club’s 150th Birthday on 6 December 2020, she was awarded Kent Women Cap no. 39 for her services to-date for the Horses, along with 50 other female cricketers to have served the county with distinction since 1935.

Playing for England at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence in September 2021, she hit her second international ton at her ‘home ground’ against New Zealand – on the same day that she was formally awarded her Kent Cap alongside Kent & England squad mate Tash Farrant and her former Horses teammate but adversary that day, New Zealand’s Suzie Bates.

On 23 June 2023, she scored her first Test century in the only Test of the 2023 Women’s Ashes series – becoming the first homegrown Kent cricketer, male or female, to have scored an international century across all formats.

In her record-breaking knock at Trent Bridge, became just the second woman in history (after Heather Knight) and the 25th player overall to score a century in all three international formats. The following day, in the same innings, she finished with a score of 208, setting the highest ever score by an English female cricketer in Test history and becoming the first to score a double century. This eclipsed Betty Snowball’s 189, a record that had stood since 1935. Her score of 208 became the fifth highest score in Women’s Tests.

In August 2023, Beaumont became the first woman to score a century in The Hundred, scoring 118 for Welsh Fire. It was also the highest individual score in the history of either the men’s or women’s competition.
