Bolton, who can bowl part-time spin, is a two-time winner of the WNCL Player of the Season and the Zoe Goss Medal. She won the 2012-13 WNCL Player of the Year after scoring two centuries and 363 runs, which prompted her maiden Australia call-up for the 2013-14 Women’s Ashes.
Bolton played every WBBL match last season, notching up a highest score of 45. The Subiaco Floreat product retained her spot in the national team for series against Sri Lanka and South Africa in 2016, ahead of the second showing of the WBBL.
