Lanning sidelined for Scorchers

Southern Stars skipper Meg Lanning won't turn out for Perth Scorchers this weekend as she continues to fight a back injury.

Lanning missed last weekend's matches in Sydney after making her debut Scorchers WBBL in Melbourne the previous weekend.

Scorchers WBBL coach Lisa Keightley said the injury was a day-to-day thing that had flared up after the women's world T20 in the West Indies.

Scans won't reveal any concern for Lanning and the result being put down as an overuse injury. 

Amy Jones will continue to open the batting at the top of the order with Elyse Villani.
