Breezair SA Scorpions

The Breezair SA Scorpions are the elite women's cricket team in South Australia. Traditionally competing in the 50 over and Twenty20 formats, season 2015/16 will see the introduction of the inaugural Women's Big Bash League (WBBL). The Scorpions will continue to compete in the 50-over Women’s National Cricket League while the Adelaide Strikers will compete in the WBBL which is played in the Twenty20 format. 

Season 2014/15 was a season to remember both on and off the field for the Breezair SA Scorpions. 

The pre-season featured a number of first, with Andrea McCauley appointed as SACA’s first full-time head coach of the female cricket program while the signing of Sarah Taylor (England) and Sophie Devine (New Zealand) was the first time the Breezair SA Scorpions have had two international players.

On the field, the Scorpions made the most of their ‘underdog’ tag by securing their first finals berth since 2007/08. The Scorpions’ spin-brigade in Amanda Wellington, Alex Price and Hannah Perry, proved to be a handful for opposition teams all season while usual suspects Megan Schutt and Lauren Ebsary along with Devine and Taylor, led the way with consistent performances.
