Allrounder Sarah Coyte returns to her familiar No.15 she wore in the first two WBBL seasons as a Striker.
Named Player of the Match for the Sydney Sixers in last summer’s WBBL Final, where she wore No.14, Coyte also donned No.15 for Australia with her most recent international outing back in March of 2016.
New international Danielle Hazell will don No.71 in her first full WBBL season. The English off-spinner wore the same number as a replacement player for the Melbourne Stars in WBBL|02.
She also wears 71 for county club Lancashire but holds shirt No.17 when on international duties with England.
Hazell will miss the Strikers’ WBBL opener against the Brisbane Heat but looms as a key inclusion for the club’s WBBL|04 campaign.
Promising allrounder Eliza Doddridge has claimed shirt No.16 for her first summer as a Striker.
Similar to many of her teammates, the 19-year-old dons the same number for the Statewide Super SA Scorpions in the Women’s National Cricket League.
The remainder of Adelaide’s WBBL list have retained their playing numbers from last summer.
Captain Suzie Bates keeps her No.11 she wore in her inaugural season as a Striker while fellow New Zealander Sophie Devine will again don No.77 – the number of her house address growing up as a subtle reminder of roots.
The Strikers begin their WBBL|04 campaign on Sunday 2 December against the Brisbane Heat from 10:40am local time (10:10am ACDT) at CitiPower Centre in Melbourne. The clash will be broadcast live on 7 Mate, Fox Cricket and streamed online on cricket.com.au or via the CA Live smartphone app.
