Mortlake’s Georgia Wareham is relishing the chance to showcase her skills in front of close ones on Sunday.
The 19-year-old will have family present to watch her don the red for the Melbourne Renegades in its third game of the Women’s Big Bash League fourth season at Ballarat’s Eastern Oval.
“It’s pretty cool being kind of like home in this sort of area,” Wareham said.
“I will be seeing a bit of family here and it’s going to be good to be country proud.”
Over 2000 people are expected to flock to see the emerging leg-spinner and her teammates in action against the Adelaide Strikers.
Wareham, who played in the under 18 nationals at the same venue, said she was eager to play in front of a big crowd.
“A majority of them are going to be locals and it will be great to see all the young kids,” she said.
“I think it’s going to be pretty pro-Renegades and I think that’s going to help us going forward.”
After a six-wicket loss to Sydney Thunder last Sunday Wareham said the Renegades were eager to bounce back against the Strikers in Melbourne and Ballarat.
