Heat article there is not good at all. We are a batsman short IMO, having Cutting at 6 just in't good enough. We have McCullum coming next year, should replace Simmons, but if we sign one more decent batsman we're good there I think.

Bowling is our problem. We should be bringing Badree back, but he was our only standard bowler. Of the guys out of contract, Badree is the only player Id be keeping, then we should go after Johnson, Coulter-Nile, Rimmington, Mennie, Neser and Laughlin. If we could get 2 of them it would be pretty amazing and our squad should get a fair bit better.

Would also be nice if we could hold onto some local talent. Neser, Boyce, Milenko, Gannon, Hartley and Khawaja on Qld contracts but not playing for the Heat. Rimmington and Dunk are also Queenslanders, but haven't had Bulls contracts for a while.

My dream heat line up (realistically) for next season would probably be Lynn (c), McCullum, Pierson (wk), Reardon, Burns/Lehmann/Heazlett/Dean/Clarke/Ross x2, Cutting, Johnson, Coulter-Nile, Badree, Feketee/Steketee/Swepson.

That fixes the bowling up, but still leaves the middle order batting rather weak. Would be nice to have Pup and Mitch come, but can't really see it happening  :(

I assume Ryno Harris is not going to make himself available?
He would be a good pick up for Stars/Heat/Sixers/All Teams Really
Can't see it happening with the injury problems he has/have had. Would take him at the Heat tho.

Fixture is out for BBl|06 and WBBL|02. Looks like the fantasy competition will have the 5 game and 3 game rounds again unless they opt for a completely different format.

Fixed up the group link & the league code, was doing it in a rush before I went out.  :-[

Anyhoo, I did a first draft of my team.

1. Andre Russell
2. Dwayne Bravo
3. Kieron Pollard
4. Brendan McCullum
5. Kumar Sangakkara
6. Peter Handscomb
7. Moises Henriques
8. David Willey
9. Andrew Tye
10. Ben Cutting
11. Samuel Badree

12. Jake Weatherald
13. Arjun Nair (Placeholder for Labuschagne)
14. Jake Doran
15. Patrick Cummins
16. Jack Wildermuth (Placeholder for hopefully Valente)


I've noticed, being out of the game for a year since my top 50 finish, there is less squeeze on the cap room. The fact I can afford that team is absolutely bonkers. :o

Squads for the teams can be located here - http://www.bigbash.com.au/news/kfc-big-bash-league-bbl06-player-signings-morgan-badree-russell-hogg-bravo-mccullum/2016-11-10

Teams left to fill spots: (the players below are not in the game yet)

Adelaide Strikers - 5 (Laughlin, Neser, Lehmann, Valente?, Benton? Maybe Tom Andrews? - Don't see Putland or Keath receiving another contract - Additionally, Rashid's involvement is predicted to be minimal due to international commitments, so a Third international incoming?)
Hobart Hurricanes - 3 (Hill, Webster, Van der Gugten the 3 off contract players, but Cameron Stevenson would be odds on to get a contract)
Melbourne Renegades - 1 international spot remaining
Perth Scorchers - 2, 1 international (NCN injury replacement & Willey, who will be unavailable in the back half of the competition)
Sydney Sixers - 2, 1 international (Cowan, Edwards & Lumb currently without a contract)
Sydney Thunder - 3 (Beadle, Hartley both currently off-contract, McDonald retired)

Some of the names currently also in limbo who have been released include - Simon Mackin, Nick Buchannan, Peter Forrest

Some of the new names that will feature this year include - Alex Carey, Jake Weatherald, Marnus Labuschagne, Hilton Cartwright, Jhye Richardson, Daniel Hughes, Jason Sangha, Stuart Broad, Ian Bell, Eoin Morgan, Mitchell Johnson - Some aren't new, but all of these players were not contracted in BBL|05.

Round 1 (5 Matches) - Strikers, Sixers, Thunder play twice. Stars have a bye.
Round 2 (3 Matches) - Strikers and Renegades have a bye.
Round 3 (5 Matches) - Renegades and Scorchers play twice.
Round 4 (4 Matches) - Heat play twice. Renegades have a bye.
Round 5 (4 Matches) - Renegades and Hurricanes play twice. Heat and Scorchers have a bye.
Round 6 (3 Matches) - Sixers and Thunder have a bye.
Round 7 (4 Matches) - Stars play twice. Hurricanes have a bye.
Round 8 (4 Matches) - All teams play once.

Round 7 (4 Matches) - Stars play twice. Hurricanes have a bye.
Round 8 (4 Matches) - All teams play once.

So you're probably not wanting to start with too many Stars considering they have a bye first up & no DGW until Round 7, while the two Sydney franchises seem to be the way to go.

Seems like leagues can only hold 8 people, so here's another league code when the first is full, 577460
Title: Re: BBL|06: Match and Fantasy Discussion
Post by: fanTCfool on November 17, 2016, 08:35:38 PM
$6000 to be equally shared amongst the highest scoring league, lets hope a FF league can take it out!
There's also a $500 prize for the highest weekly score, and a $1000 prize for the most creative entry in that 25 words or less at the start.
Title: Re: BBL|06: Match and Fantasy Discussion

Now that this is out I can base the D6s fixtures around the Fantasy rounds :D

I think it's between Ludeman and Carey actually. Carey stole Ludemans spot in FC and OD and got a contract for this so he might have taken his spot completely :o

And if Carey keeps scoring runs (Even if they are FC runs) then he's gonna make it very difficult for the selectors to pick Ludeman ahead of him! Two fifties against Queensland when most other bats failed is tough to ignore.

Must've had an overhaul last year, used to only be Economy bonuses for below 6 and below 8 rpo & a 150 & 200 strike rate bonus (or was it 175? don't remember off the top of my head). Never used to be points for dot balls either. D:
Title: Re: BBL|06: Match and Fantasy Discussion
Post by: PowerBug on November 22, 2016, 02:13:17 PM
I missed the Dot Ball bit. That is definitely new this year.

http://forum.fanfooty.com.au/index.php/topic,104333.msg1655274.html#msg1655274
If you go to 7.3 that's what I had listed as the T20 scoring system, but I reckon I didn't update that properly for last season because I do remember there being 4 different point levels for Econ and SR.
Title: Re: BBL|06: Match and Fantasy Discussion
Post by: Rusty00 on November 22, 2016, 04:22:11 PM

Johan Botha is now an Australian Citizen, this effectively allows the Sixers to pick up another International Player.
Makes sense as to why their list had not yet been finalised, wonder who the selection will be?

Yeah I got this email a while back and signed up, it's a lot like BBL Fantasy back a few years where there were still All Rounders.
The scoring system is also a little different, no SR bonus for batsman, but rather a bonus for the difference between Runs and Balls faced, for example 36 (20) = 16 bonus points.

So how are peoples teams shaping up? Here's what I have so far

Finch, Head, Bailey, Burns, White (Stoinis, Heazlett)
Paine (Whiteman)
Watson, Johnson, Rimmington, Cummins, Mennie (Faulkner, Turner)

Thoughts? Just the 5 Koalas in the team, probs not enough :P

Im also still after a good team name, so if anyone considers themselves particularly punny give us a suggestion. Will share some of the prize money I win.

A few things if I may AK,

Lynn - Racing against time to be fit and will not have any match practice whatsoever. Select with caution
Roy - Very few Englishmen have done well here but could be a great POD
Watson - Injured
Handscomb - National Duties will most likely prevent him from taking part.
Rashid - Very likely to not feature due to international duties as well.
Mennie - Hasnt had the best t20 career but with a point to prove could be a very handy POD.

Love a few of the selections too mate. :)

Nice Team AK! Agree with Koop on those points though. Here's mine:

Bailey, Bell, Sanga, White (Carey)
Russell, Head (Wildermuth)
Haddin (Doran)
Dorf, Narine, Broad, Badree (Cummins)

I've got 121k to play with and I really don't know what to do. Upgrade Broad? I have faith in the spinners and Broad isn't really great on Aussie pitches.

Last few seasons we've had Match and Fantasy discussion in the same spot, but this SuperCoach BBL looks like it'll rival the official game pretty well, so maybe we o back to seperate threads? And have a match discussion in the Cricket section of the forum?

Given that there's a lot of differences between the two in terms of salary, positions and even scoring it's probably best to try and keep the two apart to avoid confusion. Separating the thread for mid-match whinging wouldn't hurt either  ;D

There's still not enough traffic or participation to warrant another thread. Most of the talk in here will likely apply to both comps, there's really no need to separate them.

Yeah, there's the official site like usual and now Supercoach has actually started up their own version which is like the older version which had allrounders.

The one i did was quick as, didnt need to re register anything as i did it last year. Supercoach one is pretty shower. Too many all rounders that you cant select as a batter or bowler, Should make more all rounders if there going to do it like that.

It's certainly a different format and more challenging in that regard, so there will be some differences between players for each comp.


Official Fantasy:
Henriques (VC), McCullum, Roy, Harris, Patterson [Bell, Sangakkara]
Haddin [Harper]
Head (C), Bravo, Pattinson, Pollard, Cummins [Wright, M.Marsh]

Notes:
 - Harper my loophole, if he plays that's good if not I have a loophole each round
 - 7 players with a double in Round 1
 - Two Scorchers preparing for the Round 3 double
 - Despite the Rd 2 Bye 3 Gades which I will hold as Rd 3 double (Will trade Head, Pollard next week)

SuperCoach BBL
McCullum, Roy, White, Patterson [Pietersen]
Head (C), Henriques (VC) [M.Marsh]
Haddin [Whiteman]
Pattinson, Richardson, Badree, Cummins [Boland]

Notes:
 - Two Stars because I could afford guns, so I got them. Can use either as captain loophole.
 - Whiteman, Marsh in readiness for the Rd 3 double
 - Need to get Bravo for Round 3.



Thoughts on what I have? I wanted Shaun Marsh but am iffy on his test position he might get a Boxing Day recall. Shame about the Gades 1,0,2,0,2 fixture otherwise I'd load up completely get Finch in as well.

I'm going to have a crack due to the prize money even though I know sweet FA about cricket.  Rate me fellas, I've gone super cheap at this stage with 448K in the bank.

Roy, Burns, Hughes, Blizzard (Sangakarra)
Head, Marsh (Faulkner)
Haddin (Dunk)
Johnson, Badree, Cummins, Sandhu (Fekete)

 :D

Can still rate my team based on players chosen and disregard salary.  ;D

Interesting setup you've gone for mate. Keep in mind that the Thunder, Sixers and Strikers have DGW's first up so you can factor that into your planning if you want to alter the team.

Batting - Not too big of a fan of Burns in the T20 format to be perfectly honest, not in brilliant form in the Shield and doesn't have the Strike Rate in T20 to indicate he can score the points to keep up with the rest. Roy is one that has the stats to indicate he could do well (28 @ 144 SR), opens the batting, and is in reasonable form. However Englishmen by and large don't have the best results here, but could be a very boom pick. Blizzard will bat high for the Thunder and is known as an aggressive player, however has not been in form in the Futures league for the ACT whatsoever so select with caution. Hughes did quite well in the Matador but doesnt have the T20 history to back it up.

AR - Head & Marsh both solid choices however both will most likely be called up for the ODI's in mid-January, so if you plan on keeping an eye on it, it might be wise to have some plan in mind to deal with that. Bravo & Pollard other options.

Wicketkeepers - No issues there, solid choice in Haddin who SHOULD open for the Sixers (Although with Roy and Hughes there thats slightly in the air). Dunk maybe not so much but will bat high, which can't be said for the other cheapies. Doran is another option

Bowling - Badree and Cummins both good choices in my book, however Cummins probably more of a bench option considering his injury history. Sandhu not in form & isn't a guaranteed starter. Better options around than Fekete imo.

Love your official team PB, although the fact you can get that under the cap is completely nuts. Harris obviously the speculative pick in my book considering his T20 past record but theres always one for each team. Could work out rather well mind you considering his Shield form. Bell the other I have question marks over and hopefully Sangakkara bounces back.

Nothing to say about your SC team either other than what I said about Roy to jvalles, great team. Probably won't select Mitch in either format myself but I can see why you would.

Is Whiteman a lock to play? Bancroft also keeps a bit and could keep him out of the team. Though Bancroft hasn't exactly out performed Whiteman during the Shield so far

Also if I was picking a Scorchers all rounder I would go Turner, bloke is having a break out year! You could argue he is the second best shield batsman behind Khawaja atm

Never participated in BBL fantasy before, have been playing for a few days and would love some feedback!

I've gone heavy with the double-rounders first up, with the strategy to trade hard to keep that going. I'm thinking Adelaide players out after rd 1 for Perth/Stars players.
Let me know what you think!

According to Fox, here's the expected Adelaide team for Round 1,

Jake Weatherald
Ben Dunk
Travis Head
Brad Hodge
Kieran Pollard
Jake Lehmann
Alex Carey
Chris Jordan
Kane Richardson
Ben Laughlin
Michael Neser/Tom Andrews (not yet in Squad)

Definitely some fantasy value to open up, Weatherald and Dunk cheap in both formats.
Carey close to a lock if he's taking the gloves at basement price.
Don't think Tom Andrews is on the BBL website yet but might also be a cash cow with Strikers bowling options going down.

Sydney Thunder expected line-up,

Aiden Blizzard
Kurtis Patterson
Eoin Morgan
Andre Russell
Ben Rohrer
Jay Lenton
Chris Green
Arjun Nair
Pat Cummins
Clint McKay
Gurinder Sandu

Jay Lenton, that's a name I'm not familiar with. Doesn't look like he is on the system yet.
Morgan named, though I believe he won't be available for the entire tournament.
Nair could be a pretty good cash cow, and both Blizzard and Patterson will have more opportunities than before.

News said Strikers likely to go spinless now, which indicates to me that it'll be Neser (who should play anyway). Travis Head and Craig Simmons (Who I have over Weatherald) can bowl 4-5 overs between them if needed. Laughlin basically bowls off spinners anyway :P


Also, looks like Russell's hearing is delayed so will be available. As such he's in my side and gets the C.

I think 7 or 8 is a good amount. Remember that Strikers miss week 2 so don't go with more than 3 of them.


Joel Paris injured as well with a side strain. Adds to: Shaun Marsh, Jason Behrendorff, NCN, Johnson (unlikely for game 1). And they STILL have a plethora of pace stocks to choose from!

Rolling lockout remember. You can always emergency loophole who you think is the weakest of your DGW players, if they fire up in Game 1 you trade Bravo to a Stars (bye) player, and if not you just keep Bravo on field.

Yeah good point, although just remembered it's harder to loophole in the Official version of the game as they have 2 batsmen and bowlers on the bench and take the lowest emergency score. Means you'd have to have 2 non-scoring players in the one position if you wanted to loop-hole.

Yeah that's the thing. It's also hard because the Stars don't have any decent cheaper options worth having on the bench, aside from Faulkner and mabye Wright (although both are on the pricier side for bench cover) so you have to weigh up whether it's worth the hassle of downgrading a couple of your on-field players to fit them in.

Me, I'm probably still going to do it as I feel constant loopholing is the best way to get ahead in this comp. :P

Your 4 Substitutes do not add their points towards your team total, however your Substitutes act as automatic emergencies and will automatically have their score added (as long as they score greater than 0) to replace a player in your Starting 11 who doesn't play and receives a score of 0 - in their matching position only.

The Heat one I already posted above ftc :P

I'm expecting the two SA Wombats fellas (Swepson and Wildermuth) to miss for the Heat while O'Connor and Kelvin Smith to miss for the Strikers.

Jake Weatherald suddenly becomes a genuine option for teams.

Yeah knew the Heat was posted but just copied the slab from the Strikers website in case it was any different.
Another interesting thing is that Strikers is not an alpha-order, but seems like a batting order to me.

I feel so afraid at the idea of not having Lynn in my side, but here is my SC version:

Hodge, Sanga, Patterson, Weatherald (McCullum)
Head (C), Henriques (VC) (Wildermuth)
Haddin (Doran)
McKay, Richardson, Badree, Cummins (Broad)

I have like 260k in the bank, so if Dre Russ starts to go bang first round I can easily get him in for Head if he faults.

9/11 DGWs for R1, but Richo, Hodge, Head and Weatherald is a bit of a concern for R2. I suppose McCullum can cover one of Hodge/Weatherald and Wildermuth could do the same for Head if he plays. Broad same for Richo.

Yep, catches as a keeper count, or at least they are on the official site.
Live stats for all players are now in operation, Mennie leading the way from SOK.
As for Russ, also dropped the C on him, something good better happen with the ball or in the field or i'll be cheesed!

Ah, the confusion between formats is real.
Interesting to see no points for Haddin in SC when he should be on 20.
There's nothing in the scoring that says a keeper can't score from catches.

Main concern was that Haddin wasn't getting the points, thought there may have been some rule stating that keepers couldn't get points for catches or something strange that I had massed.

Nice to see Cummins chipping in with some points with the bat, and a couple of sixes for the SuperCoach 'Big 6' competition.

Amazingly he's listed at 3 despite there being 4 blokes that could open in that side. Its his batting that is the great part so I wouldn't be worried with him.

The way they lined up though I don't think we will see lots of Moisés bowling, and the fact that (from memory) there's been 3 times this shield season where he's gone off injured mid over does not help.

I switches Bravo to Morgan yesterday and I'm pretty happy with the result so far, another 30 form Morgan would probably make it a positive move plus the cash I saved, I think I'm still gonna punt Richardson now even with the strong line up of the Heat, 1-2 wickets a game plus economy bonus should result in a half decent score

Already above 50 in both formats, can only go backwards if the strike rate drops which doesn't look likely!

Starting to regret leaving McCullum on the pine and playing 2 game Weatherald - May pay off but with McCullum going beserk he will need to go big as well.

Hmmm, had Peirson in the original draft team before defecting to Double Game Haddin. Might look to bring Jimmy back soon as he's doing very well along McCullum now that he has settled down. Looking very good.

Patterson (8.)*
Pollard (74)*
Dunk (105)*
Weatherald (72)*

Bravo, Marsh and Marsh to play.



Definitely nailed some big ones, but have also missed out on some monsters. No Henriques for one, plus no Weatherald in SC and Patterson over Gibson/Hughes/any other cheap bat that went silly.

Spewing I played Haddin over Dunk so seeing that 100 sitting on the pine is really hurting compared to Haddins 24. MCCallums 74 on the pine compared to Pattersons 8 also looks sick.

I'd trade our SMarsh ele, don't think he's going to play the first game. A few days ago I read that Johnson was only 50/50 too but since then Paris has gone done so he should play now. Squad will be released today so you'll know soon for sure about those players :)

Head (26)
Henriques VC (252)
Haddin (20)

Narine still to come in first lot of games then 9 more play again.

Post by: PowerBug on December 22, 2016, 12:00:02 PM
My teams:
Official: 579 with 10 to play
SC: 622 with 10 to play

Seems to be around the mark. Obviouly lots changes over the coming days with everyone playing again. Captain Head in both teams needs to stand up!

For those that may have missed it:
http://www.melbournerenegades.com.au/news/match-preview-melbourne-renegades-sydney-thunder-bbl-06-etihad-stadium/2016-12-21
Melbourne Renegades: Aaron Finch (C), Dwayne Bravo, Tom Cooper, Xavier Doherty, Callum Ferguson, Marcus Harris, Brad Hogg, Sunil Narine, Peter Nevill, Nathan Rimmington, Matt Short, Chris Tremain, Cameron White
My guess here is Matt Short 12th man (because he is forced to be by the rules), and Xavier Doherty obviously misses no chance they play 3 spinners

Sydney Thunder: Ben Rohrer (c), Fawad Ahmed, Pat Cummins, Jake Doran, Ryan Gibson, Chris Green, Clint McKay, Eoin Morgan, Arjun Nair, Kurtis Patterson, Andre Russell, Gurinder Sandhu, Kerrod White
White, Nair IN, Blizzard, Lenton OUT. Thunder will probably go unchanged, if Nair comes in it'll be for Ahmed so strengthen the batting


And just released, for tomorrow's game:
Adelaide Strikers: Hodge (c), Dunk (wk), Head, Jordan, Laughlin, Lehmann, Neser, O'Connor, Pollard, Richardson, Smith, Stanlake, Weatherald
Stanlake IN, Agar OUT. Stanlake for O'Connor is possible considering the game is at the WACA, no space for Kelvin Smith after Weatherald's star performance

536 with all to double up (Bench Dunk 105, Wildermuth 1, Nair DNP and M Marsh and D Willey yet to play)

Backfired me thinks by selecting all DGW Players but there is a second chance.

3 trades definitely this week.

Not in the squad.

Perth Scorchers squad: Adam Voges (c), Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Ian Bell, Mitchell Johnson, Michael Klinger, Mitchell Marsh, Jhye Richardson, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Cameron Valente, Sam Whiteman, David Willey
I'm expecting Bancroft to miss, then either Richardson or Valente (the latter has to be in the 12 due to being an injury replacement player)

And for the other game:
Hobart Hurricanes: Tim Paine (c), D'Arcy Short, Kumar Sangakkara, Dominic Michael, George Bailey, Dan Christian, Hamish Kingston, Shaun Tait, Cameron Boyce, Stuart Broad, Clive Rose, Beau Webster, Jonathon Wells
Wells and Rose miss to me, Short might open!

Sydney Sixers: Moises Henriques (c), Sean Abbott, Sam Billings, Doug Bollinger, Johan Botha, Harry Conway, Ben Dwarshuis, Brad Haddin, Daniel Hughes, Joe Mennie, Stephen O’Keefe, Jason Roy, Jordan Silk
Seeing as they won, probably Silk and Conway sit out and they go unchanged

Bravo doesn't get it unfortunately.

* Run out example - if a throw has gone straight to a keeper and all he does is remove the bails then the fielder gets the run out. If it's a wayward throw that the keeper has to retrieve and then throw the stumps down himself then the keeper gets the run out as he played the more significant part.

Was hard to judge because it was the Keeper to the bowler to throw down the stumps, and the short throw from Neville wasn't too spot on target either.

Luke Wright vs Marcus Stoinis vs Adam Zampa

Money not an issue here, expecting Wright and Stoinis to open. Zampa will rarely bat. Zampa a much better bowler, Stoinis should get the occasional over while I dont think Wright will bowl much.

Wright the best bat
Zampa the best bowler
Stoinis the average of both

I believe so yes.

Ranked 41st in official. Happy with that start.

Current trades with DGW3 in mind:

Pollard -> Hogg
Henriques -> Willey (Henriques coulsve easily had 0 in that round just quietly.)
Patterson -> Turner

Then move heaven and earth to get Finch, SMarsh & whoever in for Round 3. Leaving me with 7 DGW players. As well as 3 Heat guys for DGW4

Not a good start.

Trades being considered:
BBL
Head to Maxwell
Haddin to Pierson (Dunk is on the pine due to Strikers bye)
McKay to Johnson
Will put VC on Maxy.
Official
Head to Maxwell
Abbott to Ashton Turner
Kurtis Patterson to Darcy Short

Head not bowling effects scoring and Haddin not opening also hurts. Wish I had 6 rectification trades

26th December vs Stars
Hobart Hurricanes
Tim PAINE (C), Dan CHRISTIAN (VC), Cameron BOYCE (DVC), George BAILEY, Stuart BROAD, Hamish KINGSTON, Dom MICHAEL, Sam RAINBIRD, Clive ROSE, Kumar SANGAKKARA, D’Arcy SHORT, Shaun TAIT, Jon WELLS
Rainbird in for Webster, the way they played it'll probably be unchanged barring injuries

Post by: PowerBug on December 26, 2016, 03:55:42 PM
27th December:
Perth Scorchers:Perth Scorchers squad: Adam Voges (c), Ashton Agar, Ian Bell, Michael Klinger, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, James Muirhead, Jhye Richardson, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Cameron Valente, Sam Whiteman, David Willey.
MITCH JOHNSON, Cam Bancroft out of the squad. Expect Muirhead to play with it being at the SCG

Sydney Sixers: Moises Henriques, Sean Abbott, Sam Billings, Doug Bollinger, Johan Botha, Ben Dwarshuis, Brad Haddin, Joe Mennie, Stephen O’Keefe, Jason Roy, Jordan Silk, Will Somerville, Henry Thornton
Probably the two inclusions to the 13 man squad that will miss out, but the seamers have to be on notice after that last effort

28th December:
Brisbane Heat: Brendon McCullum (c), Samuel Badree, Nick Buchanan , Joe Burns, Ben Cutting, Jason Floros, Chris Lynn, Jimmy Peirson, Nathan Reardon, Alex Ross, Mark Steketee, Mitch Swepson, Jack Wildermuth.
Probably unchanged even though I think they don't bat deep enough, so Reardon and Buchanan miss

In Supercoach:

Head -> Short (cash-grab + rage-trade)
Patterson -> SMarsh (upgrade + rage-trade + DGW)
Richardson -> Cutting/Tye (Allows me to bench Johnson + line up another DGW)

In Official:

Head -> SMarsh (DGW + Head not bowling atm)
Patterson -> Turner (DGW)

Now I can't work out where to use my final trade, no cover anywhere but I can field a full team and only 7.8k in the cap doesn't leave a lot of room. Already got 3 Scorchers and 2 Gades with 3 trades to come next week.

If I took Bell instead of Shaun Marsh I could get Alex Ross or Cameron White in for Weatherald and tee up the Gades/Heat next DGW? Might do that, even though it kills me to not have Shaun Marsh who is an absolute star. Other options around that price are Agar (don't want too many Scorchers), Botha (bats a bit low), Mennie (bowls pies), Rose (spud), Ferguson (not explosive enough), Kingston (bats too low).

TLDR?

S.Marsh + Weatherald + a spare trade with no clue where to use it :P
vs
I.Bell + C.White or A.Ross
Title: Re: BBL|06: Official and SuperCoach Fantasy Discussion
Post by: PowerBug on December 26, 2016, 05:19:07 PM
There's not a lot I like in the Heat squad. McCullum, Lynn, Badree probably the front runners. How many Scorchers is too many if you went Agar? Because it's a DGW there'd be nothing wrong with carrying 5 in, although you'll unlikely get a big score from all of them this round.

Pretty valid point man, and on Ross, he does bat pretty low @ 4/5 for someone who doesn't bowl. Would be leaning toward White if I took that route.

Scorchers atm: Bell, Turner, MMarsh plus at least one more to come in next week (probably SMarsh or Willey). I spose Agar would be fine, but he also bats pretty low while being fairly unlikely to bowl 4 overs. White with 2 DGWs and 2 byes in the next 4 weeks is tempting with a lot more batting time (albeit no bowling time).

More an issue of cash than an issue of too many Scorchers on reflection.

Marcus Harris? Cheaper but more risky as he goes hard every ball.

Will Willey even be available for their DGW? The ODIs aren't far away surely he'd be on the plane to India soon.

The Botha, SOK route might not be a bad one. I started Botha and was pretty happy with his return last round.

Kinda flowered up by having too many Strikers/Renegades and poor choices on my bench, but I think I managed to get a half decent lineup. Was bloody hard on mobile though.

Yeah Botha does bat low but will almost always bowl 3 or 4 overs. SOK in a similar boat. I spose my aversion to them is they don't have a DWG left but still have a bye later in the season.

I think I'll go with White, he's a good player and aside from his last outing, he's in good form. Batting at 3 for the Gades, plus fielding in catching positions sells it to me I reckon.

Wright, Stoinis, Maxwell, Hussey, Quiney, Faulkner, Harper, Boland, Zampa, Hilfenhaus, Beer the probable batting lineup for the Stars. That middle order I'm not 100% sure on, might see Faulkner at 5!

 Chris Green
, Pat Cummins
, Fawad Ahmed, Clint McKay, Kurtis Patterson

Blizzard, Watson IN, Sandhu, Nair OUT. My guess is Patterson and White miss from that lot, they'll turn to experience to try and get them wins.

With 3 Strikers I have no idea why you didn't loophole.

SC only having one bench spot in each position makes loopholing so easy to achieve as well.

30th December:
Hobart Hurricanes: Tim Paine (c), Dan Christian (vc), Cameron Boyce (dvc), George Bailey, Stuart Broad, Hamish Kingston, Ben McDermott, Simon Milenko, Clive Rose, Kumar Sangakkara, D'Arcy Short, Shaun Tait, Jon Wells
Milenko, McDermott IN for Michael and Rainbird. Either McDermott or Wells come in for Michael, maybe could see Milenko in for Short/Rose as well (McDermott to open if Short goes)

Interested in this as well.  Also will Johnson play both DGW Games. After last weeks debacle where I rage traded and could not reverse (Roy and Johnson donuts in SC) more cautious this week. One definite trade though is Russell to Bravo who has a DGW,

This week looking at

SC
Johnson/Tye -> Narine (structure)
Russ -> Bravo
Morgan -> S.Marsh

Official
Russ -> Narine
Patterson -> S.Marsh

I'll say the reason you find Official easier than SC is because you are able to pick up to 12 All Rounders in Official compared to just 3 for SC.

Some time the Gods smile - As I said earlier when I reversed trades committed the cardinal sin of not checking captains so Maxwell remains as Captain but with my luck will probably spud this week. Bravo was to be Captain and I am one of the few who do not have Mitch Marsh in official.

Very Slow start in both competitions
BBL  162 with 11 to play
Official 355 with 10 to play as Bravo will miss

Post by: MC on December 30, 2016, 12:43:21 PM
Ok, rant time.
Here is a list of mistakes/bad luck that have contributed to my exceptionally poor SC BBL performance thus far. Many of these have been the result of inexperience, though there has definitely also been an element of luck as well...

Round 1:
- Haddin & Dunk selected as keepers, didn't loop Dunk. Dunk: 155, Haddin: 36 (result: -119)
- Vice-captain Dre-Russ, decided to run the gauntlet with Head. Head: 41, Dre-Russ: 140 (result: -99)

Rd 1 Total: 990 (should have been: 1208)

Round 2:
- Traded in Shaun Marsh over Klinger. Marsh: 9, Klinger: 24 (result: -15... to be continued!)
- Traded in Zampa instead of Tye as I had planned to prepare for DGR. Zampa: 5, Tye: 125 (result: -120)
- Traded Head to Faulkner to free up some cash for the future, rather than Haddin out for Whiteman to prepare for DGR. Haddin: 8, Whiteman 45 (result: -37)
- Captain Dre-Russ for his 22... Though hadn't really considered MMarsh who was VC.

Running Total: 1393, rank 10kish (should be: 1783, rank 660ish)


Round 3:
- Captain choice: Bravo (the 'safe' option) instead of going with my gut and Finch, my favourite player... Currently -29 *Bravo to miss next game
- Previous round selection of S Marsh over Klinger... Currently -91 *Also, S Marsh potential to miss next game with a test recall.
- On a positive, Whiteman did nothing last night, hoping Dunk dominates.


Hopefully this makes a lot of you feel far better about your current performance, mine has been a nightmare!

Fantasy still frustrating me, perhaps more so when my players fail to perform, Short makes 18 and scores 18, but if he hit a 2 and got out the very next ball he would have scored 40. I think official has a case for being a little more reasonable in terms of a batting bonus for the runs balls differential as opposed to a strike rate once above 20.

My main strat is to not chase last weeks scores. The number of people that traded in and started D'Arcy Short was mental, similarly the number that were flat on Lynn after a quiet first week. T20 cricket is an unpredictable game!
Right on the mark with this comment ele :)

SC game I am stuffed no Lynn, Finch and Bravo C everything gone wrong there. (555 with White, Tye, Whiteman, Morgan, Narine, MMarsh, SMarsh, Cummins so maybe not THAT bad)

But in the official game I am pretty happy. 688 with 8 guys still to play (Botha, MMarsh, Narine, Finch, Harris, Whiteman, Turner, Cummins) Bravo C the only downfall there but will take it considering the rest has paid off :)

1st January:
Perth Scorchers: Adam Voges (c), Cameron Bancroft, Ian Bell, Mitchell Johnson, Michael Klinger, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, James Muirhead, Jhye Richardson, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Sam Whiteman, David Willey
Richardson and Bancroft to miss for mine, Langer hinted that Muirhead will come in

Sydney Thunder: Shane Watson (c), Fawad Ahmed, Aiden Blizzard, Pat Cummins, Ryan Gibson, Chris Green, Jay Lenton, Clint McKay, Eoin Morgan, Kurtis Patterson, Ben Rohrer, Andre Russell, Gurinder Sandhu
JAKE DORAN OUT, Jay Lenton set to debut. Blizzard, Sandhu probably miss

Melbourne Stars: David Hussey (c), Michael Beer, Scott Boland, James Faulkner, Cameron Gannon, Evan Gulbis, Sam Harper, Ben Hilfenhaus, Glenn Maxwell, Kevin Pietersen, Marcus Stoinis, Luke Wright, Adam Zampa
Gulbis and Gannon my guesses to miss for this team

Melbourne Renegades: Aaron Finch ©, Tom Cooper, Callum Ferguson, Marcus Harris, Brad Hogg, Trent Lawford, Sunil Narine, Peter Nevill, Nathan Rimmington, Chris Tremain, Matt Short, Cameron Stevenson, Cameron White
Trent Lawford lol. Could be any of Lawford, Stevenson, Short that take Bravo's spot
Title: Re: BBL|06: Official and SuperCoach Fantasy Discussion
Post by: Nige on December 31, 2016, 03:04:55 PM
I pretty much largely agree with PB.

Scorchers are probably keen to continue with at least two spinners so with Agar on nat duties Muirhead seems likely. Can't see any other changes to the squad that got the win at Etihad a couple of days ago.

Lenton's also pretty decent and potentially could end Jake Doran's Big Bash with a decent showing, kinda happy I traded Doran for Dunk now. Agreed that Blizz and Sandhu are the ones to miss.

Gannon's an interesting call up to the Stars squad, doubt he gets a game. Somewhat interesting that this is his 3rd Big Bash club after being the leading wicket taker in BBL|03. Bobby Quiney disappears from the squad entirely after being the hero of our first win but KP was always coming straight in. Edit: Turns out Bobby picked up an injury, timely.

Renegades dumped Gannon and got big Truck Lawford instead, interesting. Doubt Short comes in to the side with Narine and Hogg already in plus Cooper and Finchy bowling the other spin overs. So Truck might actually get a run because he's serviceable with bat in hand.

Hmm I have a trade left in SC, might go Haddin out Lenton in and pocket the 50k. Got Dunk on the field and Strikers don't have anymore byes so not too worried if Lenton gets dropped after a few games

The team "52 not out" is on fire! 988 points with 5 players to come in the next match! And no Narine, McCullum or Lynn either!

Someone out there would most if not all of: Finch, Narine, White, Lynn, McCullum, MMarsh, Willey, Turner, Abbott. I have no White, Willey, Abbott of that lot (and Bravo C) so have a solid 843 right now but will get overtaken in that last game.

Always a nice feeling when your player passes 20, Cummins puts on to the rope says 4 in the book but it's 24 glorious points for fantasy owners, at least in official. That's after having a frustrating three players dismissed on 18 this round alone.

Rd 4
Renegades bye so Finch and Narine are out but to offset that Heat have the DG so Lynn McCullum and Steketee could go big.
Morgan said he will play his game on the 4th then fly out to India on the 5th, does that mean Willey won't be available for his game on the 5th?

Rd 5
This is where it gets interesting!
England ODI's - Willey, Morgan, Billings, Roy (Jordan is only in the T20 squad not ODI so he should hang around)
Heat Bye - Lynn, McCullum, Steketee
Scorcher Bye - M.Marsh, Tye, Turner, Willey
Renegades DG - Finch, Narine good captain options

So round 5 is going to make or break a few people, a lot of popular high end talent won't be playing

And once we navigate rd 5 we have the issue of players being unavailable due to national duties!

TL:DR Put some extra thought into your trades this round as there is some carnage on the way  :P

Correct, we will see the Australian players: Cummins, Finch, Bailey, Maxwell, Faulkner, MMarsh, Zampa, Lynn (Maybe) head off with the ODI squad.


I'd be banking on those 4 English players leaving on the 5th. Seeing as Tim Bresnan is in Perth, I think Willey is finished for the tournament.

Reports from Brisbane - Lynn has been cleared to fly to Perth for the game and will be assessed when arriving in Perth but officials confident he will play. This one though really hurts as Badree has already been ruled out. In my opinion this will make Scorchers favourite as we definitely will miss his economy in the power play. Floros will more tan likely be the replacement but do not like his bowling.

First Bravo now Badree, this is a right joke now, they weren't even bad picks either, just wanted the double game, is that too much to ask for, flower

Having a shocking week but probably not alone in that regard

BBL - 403 with McCullum (C), Ross, Pierson, Johnson and M Marsh to come,
Official - 302 with Lynn (C), Wildermuth, McCullum, Stekete, S Marsh, M Marsh,  Turner to come

Jury still out on the DGW but not looking good this week.

Typical of my season trade Morgan out due to the English ODI and preparing for future fixtures and of course he goes bang.

So I just realised I have 8 Heat/Scorchers players. And guess which teams have the bye next round? ::) How did I manage to stuff that up so badly... This is in the SC game, so I will be left with at least 1 donut and I won't be able to get Tim Paine like I wanted to :(

I was aiming for Paine 2 but will miss him as well in SC but should be able to avoid a donut.

Will be hard to avoid a donut in Official though with 7 Heat/Scorcher players. (Unless Thunder play Nair)  Knew heat had the bye but did no realise scorchers did as well. Been playing around and unless Nair plays donut,

Was going OK in Supercoach this week, though will come crashing down soon enough with Badree to miss and Bollinger's donut on my field...

Currently 679 with MMarsh, Cutting, McCallum (C) to come. 

Heroes thus far:
- Pieterson (first game for MC's Mix!)
- Short (Ditto)
- Morgan (finally produces!)

 Villains:
- Bollinger missing, forced donut
- Badree injured before playing 2nd
- Sangakarra as per usual giving me nothing...

I realised this about my teams a few days ago and realised i couldn't bring in as many Heat players for their DGW as I wanted to. Problem it was also after the Strikers and Hurricanes had already played that I realised this so it severely limited my options :-\

Official: 807 - 3 passengers this week, not good enough. Consolation is I have 4 players on doubles next week, will be 7 once I make trades.
SC: 1026 - Seemed to top the league I'm in, but I overloaded on Heat and Scorchers and will now face 2 donuts next round. Need to nail my trades and captain to not be screwed completely.

Gee not having Lyn in SC hurts,

SC - 719 and lost all league games - McCullum as Captain. Will Ross's DGW being 6 due to not getting a bat tonight. Johnsons 4 as well not helping,
Official - 845  with 2 passengers as well but still enough to win league games.

Sounds like I'm in much the same spot as you PB, 844 in Official with good planning for next week.
1042 in SuperCoach despite Johnson 4 but going to cop multiple donuts next week after simply forgetting to plan.

Been so focused on Official > SC that I've screwed my SC planning, and now it's my better performing format...

Aussie ODI players should be alright for the entire game week (Finch the main one having two games). Next round is when it'll get interesting.

But unique, and undoubtedly good players. In a DGW with no byes to come the risk is nullified imo.

Anyone know where Perera is likely to bat? Keener on him than Patto in official.

Assuming Narine goes back to the lower order, 7 (So ahead of the other bowlers). But his bating numbers don't look very flash. I'm passing on both.

Official [Rank - 901]: Turner, McCullum, Badree -> White, Short, Christian
Already own: Finch, Harris, Paine, Narine and have two playing benchies in Dunk and Stoinis

SC [Rank - 1447]: Badree, Lynn, Wildermuth -> Broad, Finch, Short
Already own: White, Christian, Narine but copping two donuts this week

Dilemmas

In BBL had Dunk as vc with 133. Do I take that or will Finch as C match it. A case of Bird in the hand,

In Official had Christian as VC with 68.  Do not have Finch here with Cameron White or Brad Hogg as C options from todays game.  This is the difficult one but tempted with Christian at the moment.

When will the ODI's players become unavailable will be interesting for next round.  eg Will Lynn be available on Wednesday given first ODI is Friday.  Saving Grace will be that some of the test players could be back. Interestingly Renshaw is not in any Franchise?

Foolishly didn't VC Dan Christian so I'm also hoping that Finch goes nuts. Hoping the Gades bat first so I can see if Narine is opening again, if he is I am legitimately going to consider captaining him this week.

Trades are looking like;

Official: Lynn & Marsh ---> Perera & White. Slight risk, ranked 46th though and if ya not first ya last. This gives me DGW players - Christian, Sanga, Short, Finch, Perera, White, Hogg, Narine.

SuperCoach: Lynn & Bravo & Badree ---> KP & Perera & Pattinson. Big risk, but ranked ~300 this is the time to go hard. Gives me DGW players - Finch, Harris, Perera, Pattinson, Narine.

Just saw a quote from Lehmann that said they would try and let players play BBL wherever possible.
So perhaps MMarsh and Lynn play that game? I don't want to trade them if they will play, but if I don't trade one of my 4 ODI players I may encounter some problems soon - and Stanlake is already locked.

In BBL lose M Marsh, Lynn, Cummins, Maxwell for next Round + Green Bye
In Official - Lose M Marsh, Lynn, Cummins, Maxwell  for next round + Henriques and Haddin with bye.

ffs. Already traded him in and can't reverse.

I nearly did, got so lucky there. Pretty dumb by the Gades, its a paperwork issue apparently. Thinking of going Patto now, big risk but big reward! Only other option is Cooper/Harris/Tremain which I don't love tbh
Jumped on Tremain last round, could be worth a look I think.

Went for like 12 an over, he isn't a specialist fielder he's a bowler.

7552 in SC
4864 in official

Having the wrong DGW's hurts (Kingston and Sanga only playing one) and not planning for byes with donuts also hurts.  Anyway lessons learned for next year.

In SC have to trade Maxwell, Marsh, Cummins so those three trades taken care of this week and Chris Green has a bye, Hopefully no donut.
Trades:
Cummins to Narine
Marsh to Christian
Maxwell to Perara
Pietersen VC loophole
No donuts if all play but mediocre bench cover with Sanga, Kingston and Pierson. No Bowling coverage.

In Official Lynn, Maxwell, Marsh and Cummins have to be traded and Sixes and Thunder have byes with another 3 players involved so will be more than likely wearing another donut.
Trades
Maxwell to Perara
Marsh to Pietersen
Lyn to Finch
Pietersen VC loophole
No donuts if all play but Sanga only bench cover.

Damn you got me :) 407 for me!

But I'm in a really good spot this week in SC, have used only two trades and can use the 3rd for loopholing

Quiney, Hilfeanhaus on the bench, with donuts on the field. If either of them fail, Lynn becomes McCullum or Cummins becomes Steketee.

Will also put the VC on Pietersen

Hopefully there is no selection dramas to screw up my nicely laid plans haha

Wish we had some indication whether Sangakarra was getting a game this week. Hoping he doesn't so I can use him to loophole (freeing up a trade and allowing me to loophole the bowlers too).

Surely you have a Thunder or Sixers player to loophole? I am using Cummins for loophole as I had 4 players in the ODI side and with the bye he offered a nice loophole right up till the last game.

263 from 4 in SC KP as VC so will be relying on Finch to go big.
158 from 4 in Official

Having to use trades on the ODI players hurt as it meant I had to keep players like Weatherald and Sanga.

Heat XI: McCullum, Peirson, Heazlett, Ross, Burns, Reardon, Cutting, Wildermuth, Steketee, Swepson, Mills
The Heat have a couple of forced changes. Lynn has been replaced by young Queensland left-hander Sam Heazlett. England quick Tymal Mills comes in for his first game for the Heat replacing injured spinner Samuel Badree. Mills has bowled superbly for Auckland in the Super Smash. He has 10 wickets in 10 games at an economy rate of just 6.61.

Scorchers XI: Klinger, S Marsh, Bell, Turner, Whiteman, Cartwright, Agar, Bresnan, Richardson, Johnson, Tye
The Scorchers have lost Mitch Marsh and David Willey to international duties but have made two like for like replacements. Hilton Cartwright comes back from test duty while England bowling all-rounder Tim Bresnan comes in to replace Willey. Bresnan hasn't played domestic cricket since September but did play two 50-over matches last weekend in the WACA's first grade competition in Perth.

Heat have won toss and will bowl.

Perth Scorchers favourites with Bet365.

I still think there should be a milestone bonus, 100, 50, 5 wickets, hat trick etc. I hate seeing players get to 50 with a strike rate of 200 and only be able to get points from runs for the rest of their innings, because even when they slow down to say 170 strike rate it still falls under 150+ and only 20 points

Hurricanes have won the toss and will be bowling first..

Two changes for the Renegades - Marcus Harris and Xavier Doherty come in; Chris Tremain and Matthew Short miss out.

Hurricanes have also made two changes - Shaun Tait and Clive Rose are out. Sam Rainbird and Jake Reed come in.

Here are the XIs -

Renegades - Aaron Finch (capt), Marcus Harris, Cameron White, Tom Cooper, Callum Ferguson, Thisara Perera, Sunil Narine, Peter Nevill (wk), James Pattinson, Xavier Doherty, Brad Hogg

Hurricanes - Tim Paine (capt, wk), Matthew Short, Ben McDermott, George Bailey, Daniel Christian, Jonathan Wells, Beau Webster, Sam Rainbird, Cameron Boyce, Stuart Broad, Jake Reed

Last game of the round Ele so loophole no use.  Could be OK going forward though,

No idea what to do this round in SC haha

Lynn to Hughes/Klinger and bench Hodge or hold Lynn and take a punt on Ross/Burns if Hodge fails

Cummins to Boland or Sodhi feels like point chasing but Bolands DGW is really appealing, will probably bench Hogg

Could get Abbot if I trade out Lynn early to free up cash or I could bench Turner and trade Short to Wildermuth/Pollard if he fails


Argh!!! So many toss of a coin decisions  ;D

Sangakarra to Burns
Kingston to Wildermuth (Also had Christian who is benched)
Green to Boland DGW

Official
Henriques to Quiney
Cummins to Boland
Still to decide on 3rd trade, Sanga or Nair need to trade one as McCullum and Christian on bench,

Thats the plan, Watson tomorrow night into KP.

Handscomb is tempting with the double but Dunk is yet to let me down.

I have McCullum and Sanga on my bat bench, and Short and Christian on my bowler bench. It is possible. Gonna leave the bowler loophole though and just back my picks. Don't have enough trades to make it work and I'd rather get on the DGWs.

In the bats is generally where I like to loophole because a sub-20 score there and you're in trouble. Current batting line-up is; Finch, KP, Quiney, Perera, Watson. Easiest to loophole is Watson but I wanna VC loop him. KP and Quiney have the DGW so I'll rule them out so its down to Finch or Perera. To me, Perera is safer as he bats and bowls and therefore has two avenues to scoring. Finch has yet to score under 25 in the tournament and could be due a bad game but I feel kinda dirty benching him in this kind of form haha

Planned trades

Maxy -> Watson
Cummins -> Hilf
Cutting -> Boland

KP, Quiney, Hilf and Boland with the DGW.

Still feel dirty having no Scorchers.

Title: Re: BBL|06: Official and SuperCoach Fantasy Discussion
Post by: PowerBug on January 13, 2017, 01:50:54 PM
KP, Quiney, Hilf and Boland are the obvious players for this week I think :) I've got no Hilfy (chosen Boland over him) but have Wright and Stoinis too.

So you're going to have no bench cover this round? :o

Stars: Quiney, Wright, Pietersen, Handscomb, Stoinis, Hussey (c), Gulbis, Hilfenhaus, Boland, Beer, Gannon

In Official have to take the punt on KP as Captain as with Nair playing and only getting one that loophole closed.  Thanks to taking lowest of the two emergencies,

Still OK with KP as VC in SC though, But Greens 65 on pine will hurt maybe.

Okay so if, for whatever reason you have Sam Harper as a captaincy loophole, you are completely screwed.

Cricket Australia has pinched Handscomb for the ODIs, meaning that Harper is back into the stars team.
So if you have Harper C to take a VC score (very unlikely given Sydney Smash scores) you'll now get his score doubled.

Bad enough news for Handscomb owners though, underwhelming in his two knocks, and now not available for his second game in a double week.

Adam Zampa returns to the Stars squad too.

The Strikers have made one change from the side that lost to the Stars at the MCG in a last over thriller. They have added an extra spinner with Kelvin Smith making way for leg spinner Liam O'Connor.

Renegades XI: Finch (c), Harris, White, Cooper, Ferguson, Perera, Narine, Nevill, Pattinson, Rimmington, Hogg

Finch :(
Hogg :-(
Narine  :-\
Perera :)

Haven't checked but I really need Perera to be unique among the top teams! Finch and Hogg have hurt.

 The Stars have won the toss and elected to bat first on a very warm evening in Melbourne.

Teams News:
Stars XI: Wright, Quiney, Pietersen, Stoinis, Hussey (c), Gulbis, Gotch, Zampa, Hilfenhaus, Boland, Beer
The Stars have made one change. Peter Handscomb has been called up to play for Australia in the third One Day international against Pakistan in Perth. Youngster Seb Gotch will take the gloves for the Stars on debut.

Heat XI: Peirson, Heazlett, Reardon, Ross, Burns (c), Labuschagne, Cutting, Wildermuth, Steketee, Swepson, Mills
The big news for the Heat is that Brendon McCullum is out suspended due to the Heat's slow over rates in the last two games. Marcus Labuschagne comes into the side. Joe Burns will captain the side in McCullum's absence.

So regardless of if you went Quiney or KP they have both failed and scored similarly. Double game trap strikes again.

At least I have Stekete  :D

Early days I know but just wondered how many took the 2/1 on a Heat win. Not 2/1 now though.

So, is anyone keeping both Quiney and Pieterson for the final round and if not which one are you trading?

I may hedge my bets and trade KP in one comp and Quiney in the other

Yeah I tempted to turn one of them into McCullum

In SC I really want Steketee but have Hilfey, Boland, Tye and Narine so not sure who to bench for him!

Not going to have a loophole this week, I imagine some others will be in the same boat, Captaincy extra important!

In SC I traded to have a loophole. In official it's a bit more difficult as you need 2 non players (unless using the keeper spot). I'm hoping Weatherald gets dropped tonight then I have him and Stoinis to take Brathwaites score if it's good. Otherwise I'm going Christian.

Had fully intended to use the Keeper before realising that Jake Doran plays the first game of the week, useless. Also have Weatherald so will have a tough decision to make if he finds himself dropped, would be a little stiff given Pollard ran him out while he was looking okay.

I already have McCullum but thinking I should spread my batsmen across multiple teams given no DGW rather than having 2 from the Stars.

I traded Skeketee out for Boland last week for his DGW. Thinking of doing the reverse trade this week ;)

Laughlin is another option as a POD, ave is only 2 ppg less

But I have Hodge on the bench and want to see how he goes tonight so I'll probably sit on my trades and reassess tomorrow :)

Sitting on trades in BBL - Have Weatherald who is on bench and Lawford for loophole due to last weeks stuff up. Will hold off trading till game 2 of round.

In Official
Traded Weatherald for Gotch
Henriques for Marcus Harris
Johnson for Tye,
Title: Re: BBL|06: Official and SuperCoach Fantasy Discussion
Post by: Ringo on January 18, 2017, 06:47:50 PM
Sydney Thunder: Patterson, Vince, Watson, Rohrer, Gibson, Brathwaite, Nair, Lenton, Green, McKay, Ahmed

Adelaide Strikers: Ludeman, Dunk, Hodge, Pollard, Lehmann, Dean, Carey, Neser, Sodhi, Laughlin, O'Connor.
No Weatherald so trades now to be done.

Thunder have won toss and will bowl.

I usually know VC loophole back to front but I've confused myself, I've got Weatherald locked on the bench after not playing, if i trade Harris who's also on my bench to someone that doesn't play, then put that player on field with the C and bench Finch, does it work?

Yep, had a hard time figuring this one out myself but I arrived at the verdict that it works.

Dunk VC + Sodhi on the bench, I've traded in and captained some 42k Sydney Sixers bowler who won't play (Chibber?)

So, 409/2 (C)

Will likely trade:
White --> Mccallum
Short --> Christian


Leaving me with Finch, Pieterson, Mccallum, Quiney, Abbott, Christian, Narine, Tye, Cutting :D

McCullum, Bailey, KP, SMarsh/Quiney/Wright (haven't decided who to field yet), Narine, Perera and Botha.

Haven't made any trades yet though. Will probably grab Finchy for Quiney/Wright and bring Christian back at this stage.

Feel like I have to play SMarsh since I've held him through all of his shower and he needs to repay me. :P Plus he's well overdue for some runs and will be a bit of a POD too with most probably jumping off him.
Title: Re: BBL|06: Official and SuperCoach Fantasy Discussion
Post by: Ringo on January 20, 2017, 07:10:28 PM


Here are the teams:

McCullum and Buchanan replace Reardon and Mills in the Heat line-up: McCullum (c), Peirson, Heazlett, Ross, Burns, Labuschagne, Cutting, Wildermuth, Buchanan, Steketee, Swepson

Wicketkeeper Andrew Harriott makes his senior-level debut and comes in for the injured Peter Nevill. The rest of the line-up remains the same for the Renegades: Finch (c), Harris, White, Cooper, Ferguson, Perera, Narine, Harriott, Pattinson, Rimmington, Hogg

Heat have won toss and will bowl

Sixers XI: Lumb, Hughes, Munro, Henriques, Maddinson, Haddin, Abbott, Botha, Dwarshuis, Lyon, Bird

Really concerned about this one as Heat have only won 8 of 16 at the Gabba and lost 3 this season.

Have Cutting unique and am down by single figures, hopefully he gets some cheap wickets!

Only two picks off the perfect team in SC!!

Had Klinger captain over Richardson (Can't imagine many people nailed this one)

And had Abbot over Botha as a all rounder.

Will be interesting to see how the rankings go, with 35000 teams I feel someone would have nailed the perfect lineup
