A Player of the Match performance and century in the first two ODI games against India has made Nicole Bolton a crucial member of Australia's squad for the Tour of India.
In the opening ODI, Bolton claimed her fourth ODI Century, scoring off 101 balls and leading Australia to victory while in the second match she managed Australia's highest run total with 84 off 88.
"She's in tremendous form and I think something that has been really impressive is the tone she set at the top," Ellyse Perry said.
"It's not like she's been out there for a long time she's really taking the game on and scoring.
"She's been really crucial for us," she said.
Australia clinched the series against India on Thursday with a 60 run victory.
It has been a good series for the side who went down to India in the 2017 Women's World Cup final but Perry has put it down to a strong domestic season for the players in the squad.
"I think the first two games have been incredibly important to us," Perry said.
"I think something that has been so pleasing is we've come off a really long summer at and all the girls have played a lot of cricket but we've all come into this tour with so much enthusiasm and energy.
"We really wanted to perform well over in these conditions because we are aware of just how good this Indian team is," she said.
