The Hobart Hurricanes have announced a 15-player squad for two Rebel WBBL03 matches with the Melbourne Renegades this Sunday and Monday at Blundstone Arena.
English international Lauren Winfield is excluded from the squad after sustaining a concussion at training earlier in the week.
The W/BBL Technical Committee has approved a move for former Irish captain Isobel Joyce to be brought into the squad in place of Winfield.
Joyce will serve as a replacement international player when Veda Krishnamurthy leaves the squad for Indian national duties next week.
Joyce played for the Hurricanes last season as a replacement player for Amy Satterthwaite, and has also been a key figure for the Tasmanian Roar in recent seasons of the WNCL.
The Hurricanes, who have never lost to the Renegades, will be looking to register a maiden WBBL03 victory with Sunday’s standalone fixture and Monday’s WBBL and BBL double-header the final matches at Blundstone Arena for the season.
