WBBL Latest: Adelaide Strikers - Bates to miss out, Taylor back in for return Brisbane Heat fixture
Stafanie Taylor will return to the squad for Saturday's return Brisbane Heat fixture at Drummoyne Oval.
Taylor returns from a quadricep injury sustained against the Melbourne Renegades on Sunday.
Suzie Bates is receiving medical advice on her shoulder which was re-injured in Tuesday's match against the Melbourne Stars, and as such is ruled out of the weekend's matches at a minimum.
Replacement player Katie Perkins has been added to the squad for her international team-mate.
The Strikers defeated the Heat by 18 runs the first time out, with help from Player of the Match Katie Mack (50 from 37), and Amanda-Jade Wellington's 2/19.
Play begins at 2:00pm (ACDT) on Saturday, and the playing XI will be announced at the pre-game bat flip.
