Bio

Spinner Sam Bates has made her mark on the ACT Meteors over the past few seasons and captured seven wickets at 27.85 in five matches during the 2014-15 WNCL season.

The left-arm orthodox spinner was part of the Australia A Women's squad which toured Dubai in early 2015, Bates' first appearance in the green and gold.

Bates originally arrived in Canberra as a 17-year-old fast bowler, but was encouraged to take up spin after requiring a knee reconstruction.
