Knott comes into the squad for off-spinner Lilly Mills who will play in the exhibition youth T20 series this weekend in Canberra between the Perry and Lanning XIs.
Knott would be in line to make her rebel Women’s Big Bash League debut if chosen in the starting side for tomorrow night’s clash with the Hurricanes as the competition leading Heat chase their seventh win on the trot.
She would join fellow teens Courtney Sippel and Mills as making their WBBL debuts this summer.
Mills will play for the Perry XI in the series of three T20 games on Saturday and Sunday. She will be joined by other promising young Queenslanders such as Sianna Ginger (Townsville), Ruth Johnston (Ipswich/Logan) and Caitlin Mair (Sandgate-Redcliffe) in the exhibition series.
The Heat will also host the Melbourne Renegades on Wednesday at Allan Border Field as the race for the Finals intensifies.
