Bio

Kristen Beams debuted for the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars in September 2014 against Pakistan after proving to be one of the best spinners in the country.

A late comer to international cricket, the 31-year-old’s leg-breaks have been prolific wicket-takers.

Beams made her Test debut in Australia’s successful Ashes series against England in August 2015. Her 26 runs in the first innings proved to be a vital contribution.

She has played six T20 internationals, taking her best figures of 3-16 against the West Indies in 2014.

Originally from Tasmania, Beams took 11 wickets for Victoria in the Twenty20 competition in 2014-15. Her miserly economy rate of 5.35 saw her become Meg Lanning’s most used bowler.

She has joined the Melbourne Stars for WBBL|01.
