The Adelaide Strikers are one of eight teams that participate in the Big Bash League. They are the only team based out of South Australia, and play their home games at the picturesque Adelaide Oval.
The Strikers enter BBL|10 with several notable changes. Former test opener Matt Renshaw should shore up their batting lineup, while swing bowler Dan Worrall looks to do damage with ball in hand. Big Bash veteran Cameron White stays on with the side, but only in a coaching capacity.
Adelaide will push to go on a deeper finals run as they fell to the Sydney Thunder in the Knockout last season. To do that, they’ll attempt to ride the coattails of premier leg-spinner Rashid Khan, retained for one more year.
