21 January 2020

Adelaide Strikers vice-captain Alex Carey will return for the club on Wednesday night against the Melbourne Stars

The Adelaide Strikers will welcome back Australian limited-overs vice-captain Alex Carey for Wednesday night’s blockbuster against the Melbourne Stars at Adelaide Oval.

Carey is again eligible for BBL selection after returning from the Qantas ODI Tour of India, which saw Australia defeated 2-1.

The 28-year-old replaces fellow ‘keeper/batsman Harry Nielsen in the 13-player squad.

The Strikers, now in third place in the KFC BBL|09 standings, eye an important victory against the Stars who have secured first place.

Play begins in Adelaide at 6:40pm, with the final XI to be announced at the pre-game bat flip. Tickets to the match are available now.
