England’s star opener Tammy Beaumont is ICC Women’s T20I Cricketer of the Year for 2021. She got the better of her fellow teammate Nat Sciver, India’s opener Smriti Mandhana and the young Irish batter Gaby Lewis all of whom were nominated alongside Beaumont for the award.
Finishing as the leading T20I run-scorer for her team and third in the overall T20I tally for 2021, Tammy Beaumont had a successful year. Though felt three runs short of a century recording her highest T20I score for the year as 97, Beaumont accumulated 303 runs in 9 matches at 33.66 with 3 half-centuries. She was the leading run-scorer during England’s tour to New Zealand in early 2021 as well as when her team hosted the White Ferns later in September, finishing both the 3 T20I matches series with 102 and 113 respectively.

The experienced 30 years old batter also contributed a crucial 59 in the 3rd T20I of India’s tour to the country in July but failed to get support from her teammates as the result went in favour of India, though England won the 3-T20I series.
Tammy is the second woman from England to have won this honour. Legendary English Batter Sarah Taylor won the first two editions of the T20I award category- 2012 and 2013. The February 2021 Player of the Month winner, Tammy has also been nominated for ICC ODI Cricketer of the year as well as Women’s Cricketer of the year for 2021 and has made it to the ICC T20I and ODI team for the year as well.
