The Adelaide Strikers have added Australian vice-captain Alex Carey, and young off-spinner Michael Cormack to their squad to face the Hobart Hurricanes at Adelaide Oval tomorrow night.


Cormack, 21, has been selected in his first Big Bash squad after joining the Strikers prior to the KFC BBL|07 season.

The right-arm spinner featured in an internal pre-season practice match in Nuriootpa with figures of 0/14 off two overs, and he was 63 not out for Adelaide Cricket Club in the West End Twenty20 Cup on Friday.

Cormack joins Alex Carey as the other inclusion to the 13-player squad that played the Sydney Thunder last Sunday.

Colin Ingram will captain while Travis Head joins the Australian squad preparing for the Domain Test Series against Sri Lanka, of which Peter Siddle is also a part of.

The match begins at 6:45pm (local), and will be broadcast on Channel 7 and Fox Cricket.
