Saville experienced hamstring soreness following Thursday’s internal trial game.
Strikers physiotherapist Jim Wiltshire said: “Tabatha’s scans were not as we hoped and so we will continue to monitor her and work with her to return to full fitness as soon as possible.”
She will be replaced in the 13-player travelling squad by new Strikers signing, Eliza Doddridge.
The Strikers open their rebel WBBL|04 campaign on Sunday 2 December against the Brisbane Heat from 10:10am ACST at Melbourne’s Citipower Centre. The match can be watched live on 7 Mate or Fox Cricket.
