Beau Webster (born 1 December 1993) is an Australian cricketer. He plays for Tasmania. A right-hand batsman and right-arm offbreak bowler, he made his first-class cricket debut in the Sheffield Shield for Tasmania against Queensland at Hobart in February 2014 after representing the Tasmania U-23 side.[1] He made his List A debut for Tasmania in the 2016–17 Matador BBQs One-Day Cup on 3 October 2016.[2] He made his Twenty20 debut for Hobart Hurricanes on 2 January 2017 in the 2016–17 Big Bash League season.[3]

Domestic career

2017–18 season

Webster became the captain of Cricket Australia XI for the 2017–18 JLT One-Day Cup. In the first match of the cup against South Australia he scored 121, his first List A century to help lead Cricket Australia XI to just the second win in the team's history. His 229-run partnership with Jake Carder was the fourth-highest second-wicket partnership in the history of Australia's domestic List A competition. He was named the player of the match for his efforts.[4] He again top scored for Cricket Australia XI against Western Australia with 52, but after he was out the team suffered a major batting collapse and lost comprehensively by 9 wickets.[5] He was Cricket Australia XI's top run scorer for the cup with 247 runs at an average of 41.16.[6]
