Adelaide Strikers Squad Ready for Melbourne Leg in WBBL 09
The Adelaide Strikers have embarked on a thrilling journey to Melbourne with the same 14-player squad that secured a record-breaking victory in their WBBL|09 season opener. Their remarkable performance has set the stage for two consecutive matches against Melbourne-based teams.
Remarkable Season Opener
In their spectacular WBBL|09 debut match, hosted at Karen Rolton Oval in front of their passionate home crowd, the Strikers displayed their prowess by amassing a formidable total of 177 runs in the first innings. This commanding performance was orchestrated by the Player of the Match, Katie Mack.
Record-Breaking Bowling Performance
The second innings witnessed an extraordinary display of bowling prowess as the Adelaide Strikers bowled the Melbourne Stars out for an all-time league low of just 29 runs. Megan Schutt and Amanda-Jade Wellington were the chief architects of this stunning feat, each claiming three wickets. The Stars succumbed within 10 overs, leaving the Strikers with a resounding victory.
Debutants Await Their Turn
Such was the dominance of the Strikers that even their two debutants, the English all-rounders Georgia Adams and Danielle Gibson, who were presented with their blue caps before the match, weren’t called upon to bat or bowl. Strikers’ fans are now eagerly anticipating their on-field action in the upcoming matches.
