The Strikers have named a 14-player squad for the Adelaide Big Weekend, with the group differing slightly between the two days.

Uncapped quick Ellie Falconer will be included in the 13 for Saturday’s match, while teenager Darcie Brown will replace Falconer in the squad on Sunday.

On Saturday, Adelaide will take on the Perth Scorchers, while on Sunday, the Scorchers will play the Sydney Thunder in the morning, before the Strikers play the Melbourne Stars in the afternoon.

Father Christmas will headline the off-field entertainment on Saturday as he heads to Karen Rolton Oval following the Christmas Pageant, while face-painting, giveaways and plenty of food and drink options will feature on both days.

BOUNCE is also bringing their famous BOUNCE Zone to the venue, which includes a giant airbag, trampolines and a soft play area for even the littlest cricket fans.

The Strikers returned from Mackay this week after one win and one loss against the Brisbane Heat.

Both Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine found form with the bat compiling half-centuries, while Bridget Patterson posted her first 50 of WBBL|05, striking an unbeaten 57 from 43 balls in the side's win on Saturday.

Megan Schutt, Devine and Sarah Coyte have seven wickets each so far, sitting fourth, fifth and sixth respectively overall for most scalps, while Devine also sits inside the top five run-scorers for WBBL|05.

The Strikers have four wins and two losses ahead of Saturday’s match and are currently sitting in second place on the ladder.

Both Strikers matches this weekend begin at 1:40pm and can be viewed live on Channel 7 and Fox Cricket. Entry to all matches in South Australia is free.
