MORTLAKE export Georgia Wareham will continue to receive opportunities to grace the international stage after she was awarded a Cricket Australia national contract for season 2020/21.

Wareham, 20, was one of 15 players to receive a contract, which were awarded based on performances over the previous 12 months.

South Australian Tahlia McGrath was the only new face named on the list, while Victorian pair Annabel Sutherland and Tayla Vlaeminck were upgraded to Cricket Australia contracts last season and remain on the list.

Western Australia’s Nicole Bolton and Victorian Elyse Villani were the unlucky players to miss out on contracts.

Women’s national selector Shawn Flegler said given Australia’s recent success over the past 12 months, “the contract list has remained relatively consistent year on year”.

Wareham has become a key member of the Australian side in the shorter formats after debuting in the Twenty20 team in November 2018 and the one-day side a month later.
