Lanning returns for clash against Strikers in Perth

12 January 2017

The Melbourne Stars has made one change to its 13-player squad which will travel to Perth to take on the Strikers at Lilac Hill tomorrow.

Captain Meg Lanning has been included in the squad, after missing the last match with a tight right hamstring, with Hayleigh Brennan coming out. 

Our girls will take on the Strikers tomorrow, looking to continue their form from the double-header match on Tuesday. With Beamsy starring with her three-wicket haul, and Katie Mack top-scoring with an unbeaten 31, our girls managed a six wicket win against the Strikers to get them back on the winners list.Match Info

Our girls will face the Strikers first up on Friday with the match kicking off at 5.00pm AEST. You can watch this match LIVE on or on the WBBL Facebook Page.

One to Watch

What a game for Beamsy against the Strikers on Tuesday! Snagging three wickets in her Player of the Match Performance, she had her best game yet since her return from a finger injury. Beamsy has been steadily building sine her return and has been extremely economical in the process. We reckon she is definitely one the Strikers need to look out for again!
