Adelaide Strikers captain Suzie Bates will play her first game of rebel WBBL|06 in Tuesday’s return fixture against the Melbourne Stars at Blacktown International Sportspark.

Bates has been recovering from a shoulder injury sustained while fielding in last month’s Australia-New Zealand Rose Bowl series.

Stafanie Taylor has been ruled out, however, after sustaining a quadricep injury during yesterday’s second game of the weekend, against the Melbourne Renegades.

Annie O’Neil returns to the squad, while Katie Perkins is omitted as she was a replacement player for Bates.

Play begins at 2:00pm (ACDT) on Tuesday, and the playing XI will be announced at the pre-game bat flip.
