Georgia Wareham’s brilliant all-round performance for the Melbourne Renegades in WBBL|09 earned the leggy her first Player of the Season award.

Wareham was considered by the Melbourne Renegades members as the player most deserving of the club’s top gong at Wednesday night’s Cricket Victoria State and W/BBL Awards in Melbourne.

Wareham, who is currently representing her country in Australia’s Tour of Bangladesh, was thrilled with the recognition.

“I play alongside some incredible and talented players so it’s a real honour to win this award,” Wareham said.

“The season didn’t go the way we would have liked, as a team, but I’m still really proud of the way we played. There’s some really exciting cricket ahead for our lot in WBBL|10 so I’m looking forward to that already.”

Wareham, 24, a top-class spin bowler who’s often called upon to bowl in crucial overs, finished with a WBBL-best 14 wickets for the season.

But it also her batting which received plenty of plaudits, delivering her best season with the bat since her WBBL|01 debut.

Wareham amassed 295 runs, including a half-century and two high-pressure 40s, to finish third in the Renegades run tally behind some international quality in Harmanpreet Kaur (321) and Tammy Beaumont (296).
