#1. Travis Head
Captain of the Strikers, Travis Head, is certainly one the best in the business. Head brings stability to both the Batting and Bowling line-ups of the Strikers. Head can certainly be quite viscous with the ball by the standards of a part-timer and handy with the bat in the middle order.
#2. Rashid Khan
Rashid Khan is unarguably one of the best all-rounders when it comes to T20 cricket. The Afghan spinner has played in T20 leagues all around the world and in the BBL has found home at the Adelaide Strikers. Rashid's mystery combined with his unique bowling abilities where he releases the ball much quicker than usual leg spin has helped him scalp quite a many wickets over the years. Rashid commands a reputation of taking the ball for a ride all around the ground with his batting. One can only expect Rashid to light the stadiums up in Big Bash League 2020-21.
#3. Alex Carey
The wicket-keeper batsman, Alex Carey is indispensable for the Strikers. He has been brilliant with the bat during his time with the Strikers. Carry played a vital role in Strikers BBL 07 victorious campaign. He scored the most runs by a Strikers batsman- 443 in BBL 07. When Carey joined the Strikers in 2016 he was just 25 years old, but now he is far more mature in his approach. His form is going to be crucial for Adelaide Strikers' future in BBL 10.

The 26 year-old from the Northern Territory can turn out to be Adelaide Strikers' Trump card this season.
#5. Peter Siddle
