Tammy Beaumont gets signed by Sydney Thunders for WBBL 2022

With the 2022-23 edition of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) now only 29 days away, teams have been busy locking players for the tournament that’s scheduled to run from the 13th of October to the 20th of November. All of the 8 franchises are closing out on confirming their squad and in the process, a few of the best signings are grabbing headlines.

The big latest signing has been that of Tammy Beaumont who’s set to return to the Big Bash in the lime-green fabric for the Sydney Thunder. Her last appearance with the team was back in 2020 and they’d then registered a successful tournament with the title win in the 06 edition.

Australian conditions and the Bash are no alien to Tammy Beaumont as previously having played for Adelaide Strikers, Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Thunder, she gained a lot of experience and got to 1063 runs in 56 matches in the Big Bash alone. On Australian soil, in the three lions shirt, she’s got to 229 runs in 15 innings and has got to the highest score of 58*. In her T20I career, she’s scored 1721 runs in 83 outings (99 matches) at an average of 23.90, a strike rate of 108.37 and has got 10 fifty-plus scores and a century to her name with the highest score of 117.

The 33-year-old, on her return to the Sydney Thunder, said, “I had the best six weeks, even though it was a COVID bubble in the Sydney hub. I thought it was a great team to be a part of, a really good set up and it’s an exciting opportunity for me to come back and play for the Thunder again. I’ve obviously got brilliant memories of 2020. Not only did we win the competition, but the group of girls I got to spend day-in, day-out with the camaraderie and team spirit was excellent.”

Coach, Trevor Griffin, on Tammy’s signing said, “Tammy was part of our 2020 winning team. She has a wealth of international experience, and her vast bank of knowledge allows her to provide Rachael Haynes with some support out on the park. She’s tremendous around the group, and I appreciate that Tammy is happy to share her knowledge with the players.”

Tammy Beaumont had a surprise snub from the English side just before the start of the Commonwealth Games and since hasn’t featured in the side. When she takes the field for the Thunder, she’ll want to send out a clear message to the selectors and that simply will mean Beaumont in business which will turn out to be a blessing for the Thunder to have a roaring Tammy Beaumont on their side.
