THERE are only a handful of games remaining in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) and the Perth Scorchers have put themselves in a promising position on the table as they charge towards the semi-finals.
Subiaco Floreat trio Nicole Bolton, Heather Graham and Emma King have all been solid contributors for the Scorchers, during their two-week road trip which included six games over three cities.
Nicole Bolton has been ever reliable in the field for Perth of late, but has only managed to score 25 runs or more once in her last five innings.
Young all-rounder Graham has continued to impress throughout the post-Christmas fixtures.
The 20-year-old has shown why she is a talent to watch, with economical performances with the ball, as well as providing good middle-order depth with the bat.
Graham’s stand-out game came against the Adelaide Strikers on New Year’s Eve, where she finished with bowling figures of 2-12 before a match-winning 27 n.o. with the bat.
King has been the surprise packet of the Scorchers line-up this season, soaring to be the leading wicket-taker for Perth with 12, three clear of captain Suzie Bates.
The Scorchers’ four remaining games are all in Perth, starting with a clash with the Adelaide Strikers at #TheFurnace on Saturday, before hosting the Melbourne Stars at Lilac Hill on Sunday.
