Thunder will now miss the services of Rachael Haynes for the two matches this weekend. The senior pro had back issues in the previous matches. Lisa Griffith with be a straight swap for Haynes and Naomi Stalenberg could be opening the innings with Rachel Priest.

They will be up against the Adelaide Strikers led by Suzie Bates who have three points from three matches. The Strikers won their first game by a huge margin against Brisbane before losing a last-ball thriller to Melbourne Renegades.
