Adelaide Strikers have named a 15-player squad for their consecutive clashes at Karen Rolton Oval this week.

Taking on the two Sydney sides across Tuesday (Sydney Thunder) and Wednesday (Sydney Sixers), the Strikers will be searching for back-to-back wins as they look to climb the Weber WBBL|07 ladder.

The Strikers return to Adelaide was marred by wet weather, with the Melbourne Stars victorious by 37 runs in a rain-affected clash on Saturday afternoon.

Dané van Niekerk picked up her first wicket in blue, claiming 2/15 in her first home match as a Striker.

Tuesday’s game will kick off at 5:30pm, with both matches to be broadcast via cricket.com.au, Foxtel, Kayo and ABC Sport.

Adelaide Strikers Squad:

Jemma Barsby, Darcie Brown, Nell Bryson-Smith, Sarah Coyte, Meagan Dixon, Katie Mack, Tahlia McGrath, Tegan McPharlin, Dane van Niekerk, Annie O’Neil, Bridget Patterson, Maddie Penna, Megan Schutt, Amanda-Jade Wellington, Laura Wolvaardt.
