Duo available for BBL action

18 January 2019

Cricket Australia has confirmed Strikers duo Alex Carey and Billy Stanlake are available for selection for Monday night’s BBL|07 final rematch against the Hobart Hurricanes at Adelaide Oval.

The pair is currently competing in Australia’s third and final Gillette One-Day International against India at the MCG, but both players have been given the green light to resume Big Bash action with the Strikers on Monday.

Strikers captain Travis Head and veteran Peter Siddle are set to miss Adelaide’s clash with the top-of-the-table Hurricanes. The duo will join the Australian Test squad in Brisbane this weekend ahead of the opening Test against Sri Lanka at the Gabba on Thursday, 24 January.

As with the previous Test series against India, Cricket Australia will consider releasing players for BBL duties if they are not selected in the Australian Test XI.

The Adelaide Strikers will confirm their final squad for Monday night’s blockbuster against the Hurricanes on Sunday. Tickets are still available for the clash, which begins at 6:45pm at Adelaide Oval.
