The 2nd match of the Women’s Big Bash League 2020 will be played between Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes at the Hurstville Oval, Sydney in Australia.
Adelaide Strikers finished as the runners-up in the last season of the Women’s Big Bash League. Madeline Penna from the Stars and South Africa's Laura Wolvaardt will join the team this year, while Sophie Devine has moved to the Scorchers.
Suzie Bates, Tahlia McGrath and Bridget Patterson were Adelaide Strikers' top scorers in the last season, with all three scoring over 300 runs.
With Devine gone, Sarah Coyte, who took 19 wickets last season at 21.26 with the best of 3/9, is expected to be their best bowler.
Amanda-Jade Wellington, Tahlia McGrath, Megan Schutt and Stafanie Taylor are the other big names in their line-up.

Nicola Carey was among the top scorers for the team in the last season with 267 runs from 13 matches and will have the onus of producing some big knocks.
