Typhoons were missing Laura Delany with 'a niggle' in their last two games, while here deputy Celeste Raack was injured during Sunday's match, missing the truncated T20 at Leinster yesterday.

Joyce, one of only two players to make Super Series centuries along with Meg Kendall, spoke of the reasons for her comeback.

"With the injuries to a couple of the Typhoons players, I have made myself available knowing that while my break from the game will undoubtedly have affected my skills and fitness, Iím confident that my fielding will still be of a decent standard and I can hopefully add something to the playing group in terms of experience.

"Plus, Iím dying to get back on the field and have some fun!Ē
