GEORGIA Wareham has channeled her nickname into her most recent games after recording her third straight multiple wicket match against the West Indies.

The 20-year-old, who is known as "Wolf" by her Australian Women's Cricket teammates, has taken 2-44, 2-29 and 2-47 in the three one-day internationals on the tour.

It's the leg-spinner's most successful stretch of bowling in her 14-game one-day international career.

Across both ODI and Twenty20 formats Wareham now has 26 wickets - 12 ODI scalps and 14 in Twenty20s - from 25 innings.

Her bowling has been a key driver in helping Australia secure a clean sweep of the ODI stage of the tour, which concluded with a eight-wicket victory on Thursday morning in Antigua.

Wareham's figures of 2-47 in the final match came from 10 overs, which included a maiden, at an economy rate of 5.22.

The Mortlake export and her Australian teammates now prepare for the first Twenty20 of the tour on September 14 at Kensington Oval, Barbados.
