Batter Anna Lanning returns to the squad from injury.
University of Tasmania Stadium will again play host to an important double header for the Stars as they take on the Sydney Thunder on Saturday afternoon before returning to action at lunchtime on Sunday to face the Brisbane Heat.
Meg Lanning’s side currently sit sixth in the competition and are looking to bounce back from a narrow loss to the Hobart Hurricanes on Wednesday.
