Mortlake's Georgia Wareham makes Aussie T20 Team
Mortlake's Georgia Wareham has been selected in the Australian women's T20 cricket team.
Georgia will represent Australia in the Commonwealth Bank Women's T20 International series next month against New Zealand.
The 19-year-old leg-spinner who plays for the Melbourne Renegades is also part of Cricket Australia’s National Performance Squad.
Australia have included two uncapped bolters in their squad to play New Zealand in the Commonwealth Bank Women’s T20 International series beginning later this month, but have been dealt a major blow in the form of an injury to spinner Jess Jonassen.
Jonassen suffered a knee injury during intra-squad warm-up matches on the Gold Coast over the weekend and will undergo arthroscopic surgery later this week, a worrying sign for the Australians less than two months out from the start of their World T20 campaign in the Caribbean.
Victorians Georgia Wareham and Tayla Vlaeminck are in line for international debuts, after being included in the 13-player group to meet the White Ferns in three T20's, beginning on September 29.
Wareham, a 19-year-old leg-spinner from Mortlake, has been a part of Cricket Australia’s National Performance Squad, alongside fast bowler and Renegades teammate Vlaeminck.
