Wareham set to miss Ashes and World Cup due to knee injury

The legspinner suffered an ACL tear in the left knee during Melbourne Renegades' WBBL encounter with Adelaide Strikers

Australian legspinner Georgia Wareham is all but set to miss this summer's Ashes series and next year's ODI World Cup after suffering an ACL tear in the left knee during Melbourne Renegades' WBBL encounter with Adelaide Strikers on Wednesday (October 20). 

She had a synthetic (LARS) ligament reconstruction in the same knee when she was a teenager. The 22-year-old fell awkwardly and sustained the injury while fielding during the second innings and had to be helped to get off the field.

"Georgia ... had an ACL rupture on the same knee at the age of 14 whilst playing AFL which was reconstructed using a synthetic (LARS) ligament," Australian team doctor Pip Inge said in a statement.

"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."

The ACL injuries can take almost a year to heal completely and Wareham could also miss the Commonwealth Games in July and August next year.
