Strikers skipper Travis Head is among two inclusions for the club’s final match of KFC BBL|08 against the Perth Scorchers on Saturday at Adelaide Oval.

The left-hand batsman returns for his third Big Bash outing of the summer alongside paceman Billy Stanlake, who has missed the Strikers’ last two matches.

The Strikers and Scorchers will compete for the Jason Gillespie Trophy first introduced last summer at the inaugural Big Bash match in Alice Springs.

Both teams will wear special Indigenous-designed shirts to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island heritage and culture.

The Strikers will finalise their playing XI at the bat flip prior to play.
