RGF Patron, Tammy, “On Top of the World.”

The trustees at the RGF are very proud to announce that our very own Patron, England cricketer Tammy Beaumont, has become the leading one-day batter in the world for the very first time – wow!

England opener, Tammy, has moved up five places in the International Cricket Council standings after making 71, 72 not out and 88 not out in the 2-1 series win in New Zealand.

A very excited Tammy emailed RGF trustee, David Cant, from New Zealand shortly after hearing the news and said: “I’m really happy with my recent performances in the ODI series in New Zealand. I could not quite believe it when the ICC rankings came out. It has always been my dream to become the number 1 batter in the world, but I did not really think it would happen! It feels quite surreal at the moment.”

Reflecting on Tammy’s achievement, David commented: “a number of our grantees aspire to reach the top of their sport or performing art, so it’s both motivational and inspirational that Tammy has demonstrated that it can be done – with the right application and commitment dreams can come true!”
