MORTLAKE’S Georgia Wareham has retained her spot in the Australian Women’s Cricket one-day international side for the three-match series against New Zealand.
The 19-year-old leg-spinner features in the 13-player squad for the series, which starts in Perth on February 22.
Wareham enters the series fresh off being awarded the Betty Wilson Young Cricketer of the Year Award at Monday’s Australian Cricket Awards.
Southern Stars National Selector Shawn Flegler said the panel opted to continue with the highly successful squad that delivered a fourth World Twenty20 crown.
“Selectors have opted to go with a squad very similar to the one that completed a clean sweep against Pakistan as well as winning the Twenty20 World Cup late last year,“ he said.
“This series is really import for the side, with ICC Women’s Championship points up for grabs it’s a great chance for the team to cement its position at the top of the table and finish the summer on a high.”
Following the first ODI the series travels to Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide on February 24 before concluding at the Junction Oval in Melbourne on March 3.
