In the latest media release by ICC, England opener and wicket-keeper Tammy Beaumont has been voted as the ICC player of the month for February 2021.
The Player of the Month awards by the ICC are awarded so as to recognise and celebrate the performances of the top players, every month, across all formats international cricket.
England women’s team recently faced New Zealand Women in the month of February, where Beaumont played 3 ODIs and crossed the 50-runs mark in each of them taking her tally to 231 in the series.
This is what Ian Bishop had to say about Tammy Beaumont:
“Three half centuries of which two were in helping her team win the match was outstanding from Beaumont. Particular emphasis on the fact that two of the knocks were unbeaten innings, and coming inevitably, on two occasions whilst having lost her opening partner early on, she had to see things through for her team, which was incredible.”
In the 2017 Women’s World Cup, Beaumont along with Sarah Taylor posted the highest 2nd wicket partnership in the history of women’s cricket. It was also the highest partnership in the Women’s world cup history for any wicket, that being 275. Her performance at the World Cup 2017 gained her the player of the tournament title as well.
After her exceptional outing in the recent series against New Zealand, England’s Tammy Beaumont has been voted as ICC’s Player of the Month for February 2021.
