Georgia Wareham Facts
- Georgia first came into the spotlight in April 2018 during an under-19 tour of South Africa where she took 9 wickets in 6 matches, including a spell of 4/17 in a 50-over game.
- She made her T20I (and international) debut for Australia in September 2018 and was included in the Australian squad for the 2018 edition of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in October 2018.
- In the final of that tournament, on November 24, 2018, Georgia produced an excellent spell (2/11 in 3 overs) and claimed a vital run-out via a direct hit to help dismiss arch-rivals England for a paltry total of 105 runs. Australia went on to win the match by 8 wickets, clinching their 4th ICC Women’s T20 World Cup title.
- At the 2020 edition of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, in Australia’s 4th (and last) match of the group stage, against New Zealand, she produced a match-best bowling performance (3/17 in 4 overs) in a narrow 4-run victory. Georgia was named the ‘Player of the Match’ in what was a virtual quarter-final as both teams had 4 points to their name before the match and were vying for the 2nd (and last) semi-final qualification berth from their group.
- In February 2023, in the auction for the upcoming inaugural edition of the WPL (Women’s Premier League), Georgia was acquired by Gujarat Giants for INR 75 lakhs.
