Already looking thin on the ground, but they do have some pedigree in their line-up. National coach’s son Jake Lehman has been a fantastic finisher, and he’ll be hungry to show off his skills on the BBL stage to further his international credentials, and force his father to take shelter in the bar during future selection meetings. Travis Head and Colin Ingram stick out as other potential match winners, with Rashid Khan their bowling talisman. They will all need support in a tournament as long as this, however.
Adelaide Strikers Squad: Wes Agar, Alex Carey, Jonathon Dean, Ben Laughlin, Jake Lehmann, Michael Neser, Peter Siddle, Billy Stanlake, Jake Weatherald , Colin Ingram, Travis Head, Kelvin Smith, Jonathan Wells, Rashid Khan.
