THE Caribbean has become a happy hunting ground for Australia's latest leg-spinning sensation.

Georgia Wareham concluded the Australian Women's Cricket team's tour of the West Indies, which finished with a nine-wicket victory, as the side's second best wicket-taker.

She was tied on 10 scalps with Jess Jonassen while Megan Schutt claimed one more wicket then the pair to top the charts across three one-day internationals and three twenty20s.

Wareham saved her best game for last twenty20 to finish with figures of 3-14 from her four overs, playing a key role in bowling the West Indies out for 81.

The 20-year-old also had a hand in two more after taking catches off the bowling of Jonassen and Schutt.

Wicket-keeper Alyssa Healy (38), Beth Mooney (24 not out) and Ellyse Perry (17 not out) helped the Australians finish off the clean sweep of all six tour matches in the final innings.
