Earlier Wareham, batting at No. 6, had saved a floundering Renegades innings, creaming 54 not out from 27 balls. The Renegades had slumped to 4-46 as Stella Campbell took 3-32 from four overs.
“It’s nice to get up the order and have a few more balls to face,” said Wareham.
“I’m happy to do whatever role I need to for the team. So if that means moving up the order I’m happy to do that. I’m happy regardless, wherever I bat.”
Meanwhile the Melbourne Stars finally managed to get a full match in, and made the most of their chance. After three consecutive washouts to start their campaign, the weather held out long enough for the Stars to soundly beat the Hobart Hurricanes at Drummoyne Oval.
Three wickets each to English recruits Katherine Brunt and Nat Sciver kept the Hurricanes to 9-89 before an unbeaten 51 from 32 balls from Elyse Villani led the Stars to an eight-wicket win.
Earlier on Sunday, Sydney Thunder beat Brisbane Heat in a rain-affected match at Sydney Showground. Heather Knight took 3-4 off her sole over while Sam Bates took 2-0.
Weather spoiled the match between the Adelaide Strikers and Perth Scorchers at Drummoyne, with the two sides having to share the points.
