Wicket keeper Tegan McPharlin will return to the Adelaide Strikers 13-player squad to take on the Hobart Hurricanes in two matches this week.

McPharlin comes in after being granted famile leave for her brother's wedding last weekend. Batting allrounder Eliza Doddridge will be omitted from the squad.
With finals hopes all but lost now for the Strikers, the side will be keen to still put on a winning show for the home fans.
"We just need to win some games and need to start playing some really positive cricket and we know we're probably unlikely for semis now but we can try and upset a few teams and finish on a high," said captain Suzie Bates after the side's loss to Brisbane Heat on Saturday.
"We've got a really young group so if we can just keep improving and take some positives away for next season that's what we want to do."
Matches on Tuesday and Wednesday will take place at Karen Rolton Oval from 1:40pm. Entry is free and games will be live-streamed on cricket.com.au and via the CA Live app.
