Wareham suffered an ACL tear on her left knee
Melbourne Renegades' legspinner Georgia Wareham has been ruled out of the remainder of the ongoing seventh edition of the Women's Big Bash League after suffering an ACL tear in the left knee.
The injury, and expected long rehab, all but rules the 32-year-old out of the upcoming Ashes at home and the ODI World Cup in New Zealand soon after, and potentially even the Commonwealth Games in July-August.
The incident occurred in Renegades' eight-wicket defeat at the hands of Adelaide Strikers on Wednesday (October 20) in Hobart. Wareham suffered the injury while fielding during the 12th over and fell to the ground immediately before eventually being helped off the park. The scans later confirmed the ACL rupture.
“Georgia has sustained a left knee ACL injury; she had an ACL rupture on the same knee at the age of 14 whilst playing AFL which was reconstructed using a synthetic (LARS) ligament,” said Australian Team Doctor, Pip Inge. “Whilst in the field yesterday she had an instability episode of the left knee resulting in a rupture of the graft.
“As a result, she will be unavailable for the remainder of the WBBL season. Cricket Australia and Cricket Victoria medical staff are working in consultation with Georgia on the longer term management plan.”
