Karen Rolton, Former Australian Skipper, Inducted Into ICC Hall of Fame
Karen Rolton, former Australian skipper, was officially inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame during the Pink ball Test between Australia and South Africa at Adelaide. She was presented with a personalised cap by ICC Chief Executive David Richardson to mark her entrance into the prestigious list.
“It’s with great honour that I accept this award of being inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame. To be acknowledged like this is something that I never expected and am truly grateful to be listed amongst some of my all-time cricketing heroes,” Rolston said.
“Cricket has been a part of my life since I can remember. From growing up in Adelaide and playing backyard cricket with my brother to captaining my state and country. It’s been a childhood dream and one that I’m grateful for. I’d like to thank Cricket Australia, my team-mates over the years and most importantly my parents for supporting me playing cricket as a junior and right until the end of my career. Finally, thank you to the ICC for inducting me into the Hall of Fame and your ongoing support of women’s cricket,” Rolton said during the felicitation ceremony.
In her illustrious career that spanned over 14 years, Karen played 141 ODIs and 14 Tests. She scored 4214 runs in limited-overs format at an average of 48.14.
Overall, Rolton is 81st player to be inducted in the ICC Hall of Fame list.
