Fast bowler, Megan Schutt, who is currently in the Australian Shooting Stars squad, also returns for the Scorpions.
The Scorpions also feature experienced English international, Beth Morgan, 30. A batter, Morgan has played seven Test matches, 72 ODIs and 28 T20 internationals for England, and spent three summers playing for St George-Sutherland in the Sydney grade competition. She has toured Australia with England during the Ashes in 2008 and the World Cup in 2009, and is keen on spending the summer in Australia, and playing on Adelaide Oval.
