BATES FLYING HIGH
SUZIE Bates and her team are racking up the frequent flyer points.
The Strikers women have spent more time in planes and airports than anyone would wish, after trips to Mackay and Alice Springs were interspersed with two home games in Adelaide, leading Bates to ponder if this was her longest ever commute for single games of cricket. “It’s close to it,” she said. “But I do remember my first year playing in the England Super League we travelled from Southampton to Blackpool in the bus for one T20 game, so it probably doesn’t beat that.”
The Strikers close out the minor round against the Perth Scorchers in Alice Springs this morning from 10.30am.
