GEORGIA Wareham has scored another chance to show her worth on cricket's biggest stage after being selected in Australia's 15-player squad for the ICC Twenty20 World Cup.
The 20-year-old leg-spinner will be part of Australia's quest to defend the World Title it won in the Caribbean in November 2018.
The Mortlake export is one of six Victorians named in the squad. She joins captain Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry, Annabel Sutherland, Sophie Molineux and Tayla Vlaeminck.
The Australians, who are aiming for back-to-back titles on home soil, start their preparations with a tri-series against England and India in Melbourne and Canberra.
National Selector Shawn Flegler said the team took some time and careful consideration to be picked.
"This was an incredibly difficult side to pick with selectors looking at the overall mix of the squad and the roles required, and we feel we've got great cover for all teams and scenarios," he said.
"The Tri-Series will be the perfect warm-up against two of the best sides in the world and will give the team the chance to finalise its preparations ahead of the World Cup.
"For most players this was one of the biggest selections of their career with not many people getting to play in a World Cup in front of a home crowd, but we're really confident this squad can go out and defend its title and do Australia proud."
