The 34-year-old has announced that the upcoming season will be her last in green and navy blue after an outstanding career which has seen her represent Australia at every level.
“We’ve got a big season ahead and I wanted to be up front about my plans for the future,” Beams said.
“The competitive fire still burns bright in me and I’m looking forward to kicking off the WNCL season this weekend and preparing for the upcoming WBBL season with the Stars.”
Beams has been named in the Victorian squad that will face the ACT on Sunday, before facing the NSW Breakers on Tuesday. Both matches will start at 10.30am AEST (10am local time) and be live scored on cricket.com.au.
The Stars will open their WBBL|05 campaign against the Hobart Hurricanes on October 19 and 20 at the CitiPower Centre.
