Mortlake’s Georgia Wareham is hoping to continue her good form in the third season of the Women’s Big Bash League this weekend and for the Melbourne Renegades to play deep into the finals.
Wareham is happy with her form with both bat and ball coming off a maiden Victorian Premier Cricket century and some strong bowling figures.
“I’m feeling very confident in both sides of my game,” she said.
“Scoring that first century was a sign that I'm feeling confident at the crease and able to hold my wicket.
“My bowling is also very consistent and I’m hitting the right areas.
“I still want to keep improving and making sure I'm consistent with both bat and ball, but I think I'm on the right track.”
Wareham is excited to be back playing with the Renegades for another season and is hopeful of a successful year.
“We have a good group, with a good mix of experience and youth,” she said.
“As a team we have bonded really well and we want to focus on winning more games this year and really push for finals contention.
“Our big target is to go deep into finals and all the girls are right behind that, so it's hopefully going to be a very good year.”
Wareham is relishing being at the top levels of her sport, both for the Renegades and for the state team, Vic Spirit.
“Playing with Vic Spirit and the Renegades has been a rewarding experience,” she said.
“It’s been a huge step up from underage cricket, but its good to be playing at this level and surrounded by some senior players.
“The senior girls are really good, as they take me and the other younger girls under their wing and we learn a lot from them.
“I feel like I’m constantly chewing their ears off with all the questions, but they are always happy to give advice on just about everything.”
Wareham’s first game is against the Sydney Thunder at North Syndey Oval at 1.45pm on Saturday.
