GEORGIA Wareham played a handy cameo in Australia's record-breaking one-day international victory over Sri Lanka on Wednesday.
The Southern Stars capped off a series clean-sweep of the Sri Lankans with a thumping nine-wicket win, simultaneously breaking the winning streak record set by Belinda Clark's side between 1997-1999.
Until Wednesday, 17 wins in succession set by Clark and her "trailblazing" troops had stood as the longest record in women's 50-over cricket.
Wareham, who was playing in her 14th one-day international, took 2-18 off her four overs to help limit the Sri Lankans to 8-195.
Wednesday's performance capped off a consistent series for the 20-year-old.
She took 1-36 and made 19 runs in the 157-run opening game win before taking a further two wickets in the following game as the side went on to score a 110-run victory.
Australia has been a ruthless opponent since its last ODI loss to England in Coffs Harbour almost two years ago.
The Matthew Mont-coached side will be eager to take its momentum into a busy Australian summer of cricket.
Wareham and her teammates will now move immediately into Women's Big Bash League action, which starts on October 18, with next March's T20 World Cup the ultimate goal.
