Just had a look, there are some ridiculous DPP's, surely they will change!

NCN, Jhye Richardson and Hoggy all Bat/Bowl DPP but Agar is a bowler only???

Load up on Sydney Thunder to start, they've got two first-round matches while the Scorchers have none.

Yeah and they don't have a bye until rd 6, but the scorchers go from a bye to playing twice!

Round 1 - Thunder play twice. Scorchers have a bye.
Round 2 - Scorchers & Heat play twice. Hurricanes & Strikers have a bye.
Round 3 - Strikers play twice. Stars have a bye.
Round 4 - Sixers play twice. Strikers have a bye.
Round 5 - Strikers play twice. Sixers have a bye.
Round 6 - Hurricanes play twice. Thunder have a bye.
Round 7 - Thunder & Scorchers play twice. Heat & Hurricanes have a bye.
Round 8 - Hurricanes, Heat & Sixers play twice. Stars, Scorchers & Thunder have a bye.
Round 9 - Stars play twice. Hurricanes have a bye.
Round 10 - Renegades play twice. Sixers have a bye.

Strikers bye.

Then play twice.

...that's annoying.

Little bit strange, if anyone I would have thought Pat Cummins might have earnt DPP with some of his lower order innings last year.

Bates :D
Satterthwaite :(
Healy :'(
Perry ;D
Aley :)

Finished on 299. Happy with that start :o I wonder how many people have signed up to this game, might be the easiest $10,000 that one could possibly win (Not saying I'll win it, but I could see the total number of entrants being in 3 figures haha)

I'll do a best 11 for the Scorchers, not that hard considering we will only have 11 players available.
Great bowling attack Klinger and Inglis the only two that don't bowl. Batting depth is a real issue, pretty sure Agar has been really focusing on his bowling so him at 7 is a bit weak imo.

Not really sure who to put at the top with Klinger, but I feel like any of the guys from Cartwright to Inglis could do the job

Klinger
Cartwright
Voges
Turner
Willey
Inglis
Agar
Richardson
Tye
Johnson
Paris

Whiteman - Injured
NCN - Injured
Behrendorff - Injured
Cam Green - Injured

SMarsh - Aus duties
Bancroft - Aus duties
MMarsh - Aus duties

Jeez that doesn’t look too flash, definitely think not opting for a second international has set us back a bit.

Finch, McCullum, Buttler (Wk), Roy, Ludeman (Wk) (Cartwright, Rogers)
Carey (Pierson)
Watson (C), Maxwell, Hastings, McClenaghan, Sandhu (Willey, Paris)

$7,200

3 Scorchers players reading to come on for their DG week 2. Buttler and McClenaghan likely to get the chop after R1 for either Heat or Scorchers players.

You can do a lot better then Sandhu, and I say that as one of his biggest fans.
Title: Re: BBL|07: Official Fantasy & Supercoach Discussion
Post by: Nige on December 11, 2017, 08:58:08 PM
Alright, so I started writing previews a while back before I realised squads weren't finalised but now that they are, I'm gonna copy and paste what I have so far.

Feel free to discuss, dissect and disagree with any of it.



Adelaide Strikers

Squad: Wes Agar, Alex Carey, Jono Dean, Travis Head, Colin Ingram (SAf), Ben Laughlin, Jake Lehmann, Rashid Khan (Afg), Michael Neser, Liam O’Connor, Peter Siddle, Billy Stanlake, Jake Weatherald, Jonathan Wells.

Predicted Best XI:
Alex Carey (wk)
Jake Weatherald
Travis Head
Colin Ingram
Jake Lehmann
Jonathan Wells
Michael Neser
Ben Laughlin
Peter Siddle
Rashid Khan
Billy Stanlake

Thoughts: The Strikers were a bit disappointing last season but will definitely be looking to bounce back and have a better BBL|07. One thing working in the favour of the Strikers is that they are likely to have minimal disruption in regards to players leaving for international duties. Colin Ingram and Rashid Khan are their international players. Ingram is a batsman who is pretty consistent and can hit big. Rashid Khan is a 19 year old spinner taking the game by storm. O’Connor could play if they feel like having another spinner, but Travis Head always bowls. Jono Dean could potentially play in place of Wells who has come across from Hobart.



Brisbane Heat

Squad: Max Bryant, Joe Burns, Ben Cutting, Brendan Doggett, Jason Floros, Cameron Gannon, Sam Heazlett, Shadab Khan (International), Marnus Labuschagne, Josh Lalor, Chris Lynn, Brendon McCullum (international, captain), Jimmy Peirson, Matt Renshaw, Alex Ross, Mitchell Swepson, Mark Steketee, Cameron Valente.

Predicted Best XI:
Jimmy Peirson (wk)
Brendon McCullum
Joe Burns
Chris Lynn
Marnus Labuschagne
Sam Heazlett
Jason Floros
Ben Cutting
Mark Steketee
Shadab Khan
Mitch Swepson

Thoughts: The Heat finished second last year but lost a semi. It would reasonably safe to expect a somewhat similar result this season. However, a lot of that depends on the fitness of Chris Lynn. At his best, he’s destructive and can be a match-winner, but if he’s underdone or doesn’t play, it makes it harder for the Heat. McCullum at the top of the order and with his experience will yet again prove important as an international while the signing of 19 year Paki spinner Shadab Khan should fill the void left by Samuel Badree. If Lynn doesn’t play, expect Alex Ross to come in, although he could potentially play in place of somebody like Labuschagne or Floros, but the Heat seem to love the latter for some reason.



Hobart Hurricanes

Squad: George Bailey (c), Jofra Archer (international), James Bazley, Cameron Boyce, Dan Christian, Hamish Kingston, Ben McDermott, Simon Milenko, Tymal Mills (international), David Moody, Tim Paine, Jake Reed, Sam Rainbird, Tom Rogers, Clive Rose, D’Arcy Short, Matthew Wade.

Predicted Best XI:
Ben McDermott
D’Arcy Short
James Bazley
George Bailey
Jofra Archer
Dan Christian
Matthew Wade (wk)
Tymal Mills
Cameron Boyce
Sam Rainbird
Clive Rose

Thoughts: Tough team to predict. This order is definitely wrong, but getting the XI right is a challenge. Paine on national duties means new recruit Wade will play and keep. Jofra Archer is highly rated but I don't know much else, allrounder though so he's gonna have to be their new Darren Sammy. Tymal Mills is their other international, a bowler who had a brief stint at the Heat last season. Kingston's more of a bowling allrounder who might play while Moody and Rogers are bowlers who could play too.

Melbourne Renegades

Squad: Aaron Finch (c), Dwayne Bravo (WI), Tom Cooper, Marcus Harris, Brad Hodge, Brad Hogg, Jon Holland, Tim Ludeman, Joe Mennie, Mohammad Nabi (AFG), James Pattinson, Kieron Pollard (WI – international replacement), Kane Richardson, Matt Short, Will Sutherland (rookie), Chris Tremain, Guy Walker, Beau Webster, Cameron White, Jack Wildermuth.

Predicted Best XI:
Aaron Finch
Marcus Harris
Cameron White
Brad Hodge
Dwayne Bravo
Mohammad Nabi
Tim Ludeman (wk)
Jack Wildermuth
Kane Richardson
Chris Tremain
Brad Hogg

Thoughts: Added some serious depth to the squad with a bunch of new recruits. Mohammad Nabi is a gun Afghani who spins it. Dwayne Bravo needs no introduction. Brad Hodge is back at the Gades, while they've got a bunch of new talent in Beau Webster, Jack Wildermuth and Will Sutherland. Sutherland probably won't crack the side. They picked up quicks Mennie and Richardson and have Jon Holland as well as another spin option, but I'm not sure if he plays ahead of international Nabi and cult hero Hogg. One thing you can lock in Ludeman as keeper, but where he bats is anybody's guess, but you can say that for just about everyone but captain and opener, Aaron Finch.



Melbourne Stars

Squad: Michael Beer, Scott Boland, Jackson Coleman, Ben Dunk, James Faulkner, Seb Gotch, Evan Gulbis, Peter Handscomb, Sam Harper, John Hastings (c), Ben Hilfenhaus, Glenn Maxwell, Kevin Pietersen (ENG), Rob Quiney, Marcus Stoinis, Dan Worrall, Luke Wright (ENG), Adam Zampa.

Predicted Best XI:
Luke Wright
Ben Dunk (wk)
Kevin Pietersen
Seb Gotch
Glenn Maxwell
Marcus Stoinis
James Faulkner
John Hastings
Adam Zampa
Scott Boland
Michael Beer

Thoughts: It's a strong team with a number of unlucky guys missing out. When players inevitably get called up for national duty, guys like Hilfy, Gulbis, Quiney and Worrall probably come in. I've got Seb Gotch in, he might be the most contentious selection, but the lad is the future. New recruit Ben Dunk should open and keep. Duke Hastings is over his injuries and captaining, so he's a safe bet. Michael Beer is loved at the Stars and between him and Zampa (plus the occasional Maxwell over), the spinning is covered.



Perth Scorchers

Squad: Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Hilton Cartwright, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Cameron Green, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Johnson, Michael Klinger, Mitch Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Joel Paris, Jhye Richardson, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Adam Voges (c), Sam Whiteman, David Willey (England)

Predicted Best XI:
Michael Klinger
Hilton Cartwright
Adam Voges
Ashton Turner
David Willey
Josh Inglis (wk)
Ashton Agar
Jhye Richardson
Andrew Tye
Mitch Johnson
Joel Paris

Thoughts: I admittedly ripped this from Gigantor's post, but he nailed why the Scorchers XI looks like this. They'll probably get some guys back in between or later on, but what you see is what you get. Willey's the only international which people have probably heard about. Turner and Agar are their spinners, while Josh Inglis is an up and coming keeper-batsman that should impress people.


Title: Re: BBL|07: Official Fantasy & Supercoach Discussion
Post by: Nige on December 11, 2017, 09:50:13 PM
Sydney Sixers

Squad: Sean Abbott, Sam Billings (England), Jackson Bird, Johan Botha, Ben Dwarshuis, Mickey Edwards, Jack Edwards (rookie), Moises Henriques, Daniel Hughes, Nathan Lyon, Nic Maddinson, Peter Nevill, Steve O’Keefe, Jason Roy (England), Jordan Silk, Mitchell Starc, Henry Thornton.

Predicted Best XI:
Daniel Hughes
Jason Roy
Nic Maddinson
Sam Billings
Moises Henriques
Johan Botha
Peter Nevill (wk)
Steve O'Keefe
Sean Abbott
Ben Dwarshuis
Jackson Bird

Thoughts: New recruit Peter Nevill slots straight into the keeper position, while internationals Billings and Roy resume their places in the side. Expect Starc and Lyon to come in to the team at some point as has become tradition. There isn't much else to say here, other than that there isn't too much depth to the squad, but I'd expect Mickey Edwards and Henry Thornton to maybe get a game or two because they're good talents.



Sydney Thunder

Squad: Fawad Ahmed, Aiden Blizzard, Jos Buttler (ENG), Pat Cummins, Andrew Fekete, Callum Ferguson, Ryan Gibson, Chris Green, Liam Hatcher (rookie), Usman Khawaja, Jay Lenton, Mitchell McClenaghan (NZ), Clint McKay, Arjun Nair, Kurtis Patterson, Ben Rohrer, Gurinder Sandhu, Shane Watson.

Predicted Best XI:
Shane Watson
Aiden Blizzard
Jay Lenton
Ryan Gibson
Callum Ferguson
Kurtis Patterson
Jos Buttler (wk)
Mitch McClenaghan
Chris Green
Clint McKay
Fawad Ahmed

Thoughts: Slightly harder to read how this XI looks than first anticipated, mainly because of the mixture of new recruits plus old hands. You can bank on Watto opening the batting, but who it's with is up in the air for mine. Jos Buttler, an international, should be their keeper, but he'll depart after something like 6 games, at which point Jay Lenton will take the gloves. Mitch McClenaghan is an allrounder Callum Ferguson now finds himself at his third franchise. Andrew Fekete might get a run, but I'm not too sure who would go out. Blizzard and Gibson are big hitting types who will probably need to take on some of the heavy lifting as well.

Post by: Nige on December 12, 2017, 06:54:40 PM
Make of this what you will, but the Stars are playing the "Border Bash" now and the XI is:

Hastings (c), Beer, Boland, Dunk, Faulkner, Gotch, Gulbis, Maxwell, Pietersen, Stoinis, Zampa.

Luke Wright is still on the plane over.

It makes sense that he'd come in Gulbis otherwise.

So, if that's any indication, I've least got the Stars XI correct.  :P

Gotch opening and taking that SCRRREEEEAAAMMMER at 2nd slip was good to see for your prediction!



First crack at the Official Fantasy Big Bash after a 12th place overall finish last year :P

(https://i.imgur.com/z9QmyOh.png)

Each pick explained.

Finch - GOAT. Will miss games later in the season but we'll deal with that later.
Watto - Gun who likely bowls 2-4 overs a match.
Maxy - Just in immense form, and should use this as an audition for ODIs and T20s
Head - Bargain
Henriques - Rissky this one, but he seems so cheap for someone who could bat at 3/4 and bowl 3-4 overs
Cartwright - lock at that price
Maddinson - bargain, but by no means locked

Pierson - opens and keeps (cheap)
Carey - could open and keep (so cheap)

Bravo - Explosive T20 player, should bowl 4 overs and come in and slog late in innings
Christian - was great for me last time, takes wickets, catches and loves a slog and will get the chance with Canes weak side imo
Cutting - shocking econ rate but does take wickets and does slog late if he gets a bat
Hastings - love him and like Christian and Cutting he loves a late bash
Pollard - point to prove after an awful campaign last time out
Paris - lock at that price
Bird - not 100% but seems so cheap

30k in bank. I stress this is a first draft, and with the early Thunder double, I do need to consider adding another Thunder bloke or two in there.

Starting the SC now ;)

Hey mate, just so you're aware, Pollard won't be playing until later in the season when he replaces Nabi. Gades already have Bravo as one of their internationals.

http://www.bigbash.com.au/news/kieron-pollard-mohammad-nabi-melbourne-renegades-signings-full-squad-big-bash-league-bbl-07/2017-12-08

Post by: Koop on December 13, 2017, 06:56:17 PM
I'll update the OP in a minute with the Leagues and the remaining slots. Have been a bit slack focusing on my FPL team.

Anyhoo, super excited for this season! The first one since 13/14 that I will be in the country for the entirety of the tournament. Last year I started off well at 41st after the first week before slipping behind with limited Wi-Fi in Vietnam & Cambodia. Top 50 finish in 13/14 in my last full season so will be hoping to rattle the pointy end of the rankings again this year! Fingers crossed. :P



First crack, and already I'm irritated with the number of players I want but have left out. Perth having the bye first up is slightly annoying considering I wanted the Marsh/Tye/Willey trio but will have to find a way to get them in after the start.

Finch // McCullum // Roy // Head // Ferguson (Maddinson // Cartwright)
Pierson (Carey)
Watson // Maxwell // R.Khan // S.Khan // McKay (Tye // Paris)

Like ele, will explain each pick.

Finch - GOAT, okay in Sheffiled Shield, 8th highest run scorer in NatWest T20 with 489 @ 40.75 (166.89 SR)
McCullum - Have never gone without McCullum in a season he has played in the BBL and will continue to pick him.
Roy - Boom or bust, was very good last year before leaving. Either goes cheaply or goes absolutely bonkers.
Head - Absolute bargain. 6th highest run scorer in the Sheffield Shield and should bowl regularly as a second spinning option.
Ferguson - Might raise a few eyebrows. This selection depends on where he bats in the order for the Thunder, if its 4 like I expect, then I'm happy with starting him for the DGW. 2nd highest runscorer in the shield, 6th in the JLT and made 30 (26) before retiring hurt in yesterdays practice match. In some good form.
Maddinson & Cartwright - Ultra cheap and having great domestic summers. 

Pierson - My POD last year who failed while Dunk went bananas for everyone else. He will be good one day. :(
Carey - Cheap and should open, no-brainer.

Watson - Still slightly iffy on this pick as haven't seen a whole lot of him recently to pass judgement, can easily swap out after DGW in the event of failure.
Maxwell - Have never had this bloke in my BBL team ever as I have an unfathomable hatred for the bloke, but I don't think you can ignore 590 runs at 73 in the Shield, can you?
R. Khan - 14 wickets @ 19 (5.82 ER) & 6 wickets at 21 (4.46 ER) in the CPL and BPL respectively. Not the best strike rate but if you want someone who's going to be supremely economical, this is your guy. Could become Bravo or Willey if I can free up cash.
S. Khan - Few guys Im tossing up here but Shadab gets the nod at the moment because of the DGW in R2. 12 wickets @ 15 (5.75 ER) and 5 @ 23 (5.9 ER) in the CPL and Pakistan T20 league respectively. Unlike Rashid is proven against quality opposition at international level (14 wickets at 16.6, 6.5 ER in T20I, 19 wickets at 25.5, 5 ER at ODI level), but doesn't have the same hype. Averages 30 at FC level with the bat and has a T20I strike rate of 160 so can swing the bat if needed too.
McKay - Solely in for the DGW, I know he is in atrocious form, but he should start and was the leading wicket taker in the NatWest T20 Blast in the English summer (23 @ 14, 7.6 ER) and I'm willing to hold him as bench fodder for the time being.
Tye - Sitting on my bench and will come on for McKay from GW2. Too good to not have once playing.
Paris - Cheap, should play.

Others I'm considering

Bravo- Need the Windies GOAT but where do I find the cash? Ferg down and Rashid up maybe?
Tremain - Having a fantastic shield season and in contention for Rashid's spot, but was very patchy last year, could I go there again?
M.Marsh - Where do I find the room from GW2?? (International Duties permitting)
Willey - Again will be essential, will have to find room in GW2.
Ingram - T20 specialist, will come into huge consideration for Strikers DGW's.

Thoughts/Ideas appreciated, happy to pick apart any teams too. :)

I had Ferguson until I heard about his quad. Took him out and subbed Peirson on (Voges in for loop and DGR next week)

Finch, Watson, McCullum, Head, Peirson (Maddinson, Voges)
Buttler (Carey)
Bravo, R Khan, S Khan, Nabi, McKay (Bird, Cartwright)

33k spare


My main concerns are re: the DGRs and future trading limitations on players who get called up for International duties. Does anyone know specific dates/rounds where most will leave? Rd6?
Individual player concerns are McKay & Buttler, who I feel are only in my side because of the DGR, not because I actually rate them.
What do you think of my team? Any suggestions?

Gotch opening and taking that SCRRREEEEAAAMMMER at 2nd slip was good to see for your prediction!



First crack at the Official Fantasy Big Bash after a 12th place overall finish last year :P

(https://i.imgur.com/z9QmyOh.png)

Each pick explained.

Finch - GOAT. Will miss games later in the season but we'll deal with that later.
Watto - Gun who likely bowls 2-4 overs a match.
Maxy - Just in immense form, and should use this as an audition for ODIs and T20s
Head - Bargain
Henriques - Rissky this one, but he seems so cheap for someone who could bat at 3/4 and bowl 3-4 overs
Cartwright - lock at that price
Maddinson - bargain, but by no means locked

Pierson - opens and keeps (cheap)
Carey - could open and keep (so cheap)

Bravo - Explosive T20 player, should bowl 4 overs and come in and slog late in innings
Christian - was great for me last time, takes wickets, catches and loves a slog and will get the chance with Canes weak side imo
Cutting - shocking econ rate but does take wickets and does slog late if he gets a bat
Hastings - love him and like Christian and Cutting he loves a late bash
Pollard - point to prove after an awful campaign last time out
Paris - lock at that price
Bird - not 100% but seems so cheap

30k in bank. I stress this is a first draft, and with the early Thunder double, I do need to consider adding another Thunder bloke or two in there.

Starting the SC now ;)
Just on Henriques, I read that he's racing time to be ready for the opener and even if he does get up, probably won't bowl much early in the tourney.

Don't know the exact date everyone leaves unfortunately, maybe PB knows? Shouldnt be until about Round 5/6 if I had to guess.

Bird I'm concerned will still be in the Aus squad. If he wasn't he'd be 100% a bench lock with the Shield season he had before he left on duty, but I haven't heard anything re. his availability so I've got no clue. Voges I'm not sure will bat high enough to be relevant, but will play every game so is a reliable bye rotation given his price.

Wasn't aware of Ferg's injury (although seeing he retired hurt I probably should've inferred, silly me.) but will look at one of Buttler or probably Patterson as a DGW option to replace him. I do like playing to the DGW's as much as I can which has its ups and downs. Can't say I rate McKay or Patterson either so I know what you mean, I'm in the same boat.

Butttler can be relevant but I think he'll bat too far down the order unfortunately to really be a huge presence. Can be handy with the bat but with guys like Peirson, Carey and Wade amongst others expected to open, I wouldn't keep him too far past the first DGW unless he ends up batting in the first 4 or 5. Good call having Peirson that you can swap in to pick up another batter when the time comes, that's a handy move.

Really like Nabi but another I'm not sure how to fit in. Has the same problem as Rashid in the sense he's not proven internationally vs. Tier 1 nations, but has been putting up consistent numbers in every comp. Should bat 6 or 7 for the Gades and be a very reliable replacement for Narine.

Overall it's pretty similar as you said, but I really like it mate! Good luck. :)

Watsonx2, Maxwell, McCullum, Roy, Wade (Cutting, Carey)

Buttlerx2 (Peirson)

Bravo, McClenaghanx2, Nabi, McKayx2, Cartwright (S. Khan, Paris)

9.9k left.



As I do every year, loading up on DGW players regardless if I rate them or not. Logically, an average player that plays two games should outscore a good player who only gets one crack at it (especially in a T20 comp which really is a lottery).

So I've got the 4 Thunder boys in there at the moment, ideally I'd like a couple more but I honestly can't justify anyone else. Might look at going Ahmed/Green over McKay but I think Clint is more likely to bowl his 4 overs, including the all-important death overs where he can pick up some cheap poles as he did when he was the leading wicket-taker in the comp just two seasons ago.

I also feel like emergency loopholing is a very underrated tactic and can give you a huge advantage as long as you keep on top of it. Aside from Thunder players (where you'll obviously want your DGW players on the field), players from all teams besides the Strikers can be loopholed in Rd 1. The Heat have the DGW in Rd 2 so I'm killing two birds with one stone by having Cutting and Shadab Khan on the pine as my loophole players. If they fire, I'll trade Wade/Bravo/Nabi to Scorchers (bye) players, who also have the DGW in Rd 2.

Watto will likely be my skipper for Rd 1. McCullum is too entertaining not to have. Roy is my boy and has a monster ceiling. Wade should open for the 'Canes and basically has an automatic +12 to his name with the gloves.

Buttler should bat in the top 4 in that putrid Thunder side so has to be picked for Rd 1 imo. Peirson on the pine in prep for his DGW in Rd 2.

Bravo is a gun and you could even argue is slightly underpriced after an average BBL campaign by his standards last season. Nabi is one of the best finishers in T20 cricket and should bowl his 4 overs in Narine's absence.

But really, my team could change completely depending on how my Heat players go.

Been tinkering with my team and come up with this:

Finch, Watson, Maxwell, McCullum, Head (Carey, Cartwright)
Wade (Inglis)
Bravo, Christian, McClenaghan, Stoinis, Nabi (Bird, Paris)

Fairly happy with this. Only 2 DGW Thunder players though, but not many of the others are appealing. Couldn't pick between Finch and McCullum so squeezed them both in :P Seems a bit of a risk with both Bat only (although Finch does send down some off-spinners at times)

Edit: Just noticed it was pretty similar to the team above ;)

Love the team Ada!

Yeah the more I look at it the more I think Buttler could come up the order. If he's top 4 I won't have any hesitation in picking him.

Only '?' for me is McClenaghan with his recent form & overall numbers, should bat pretty low as well. But then again, the more DGW players the better!

Same as above re: McClenaghan, but obviously a DGW pick.

Cutting I'm not sure can be economical enough anymore to justify selection for his batting. Was one of my first picked in the first few seasons, but I'm not sure he can still be classed as a safe pick.

Other than that I think its a good squad mate! Read what I said in MC's one for my thoughts on bird.

Nice team Rusty, will make a note about Stoinis to both of you that I'm not sure he opens anymore with Dunk's arrival, and am also unsure how far down the order he slides. 4? 5? I'm not too sure. Still could be a good pick but just keep that in mind. :)

Just realised that I’ll be signing a CA contract to umpire in the country champs next month, which means I’m probably not able to win any prizes should I be good enough (not that I’ve ever been close before, but it is a reason why I play). So I’ll probavly not do this as seriously.

Title: Re: BBL|07: Official Fantasy & Supercoach Discussion
Post by: Nige on December 15, 2017, 06:01:58 PM
Alright, finally settled on what I reckon my side will be to begin with.

Finch, Watson, Maxwell, Head, Peirson (Cartwright, Gibson)
Dunk (Carey)
Abbott, Shadab, Hastings, Nabi, McKay (Floros, Paris)

$14,700 remaining.

And to follow the trend, I'll explain.

Finch: Opens, bowls himself, decent fielder and obviously can hit it a long way.
Watson: Mainly have him because of the Thunder having the DGW, not because I want him. Probably captain first round. Likely to turn into McCullum in Round 2 at this stage.
Maxwell: Bae. Can bat, can bowl, can field. Good for a solid handful of points most weeks.
Head: When he's in form, he's hard to stop. Bowls occasionally as well. Nice price for what he can do.
Peirson: Cheaper than he should be, gloves every game, will open.
Cartwright: Bats and bowls and should get a good go this time around to score well, cheap too.
Gibson: Him or Blizz is a coin flip, I like what I've seen from this fella enough to back him in. Can't go too wrong for 30k.

Dunk: Due for a strong campaign. Has the tools to rack up points, fairly certain that he will keep and open with Luke Wright.
Carey: Likely to open with Weatherald and is nice and cheap.

Abbott: Expensive yes, but he gets points very easily. Back him in for the wickets he'll take more so than anything.
Shadab: Kid is a gun and given the locals wouldn't have seen a lot of him, that makes his dangerous. Reasonable price.
Hastings: Looks good and priced nicely for what he's capable of so I'm all in.
Nabi: Great price. Should get at least 3 overs every game and more than capable with bat in hand also.
McKay: Takes wickets and is a pretty decent price, plus with the Thunder DGW he's gotta get a handy score this round.
Floros: I feel dirty for having this bloke but he's cheap, the Heat seem to love him and always play him and he actually bats and bowls.
Paris: Cheap, gun, will take wickets.

Made some changes to my team

Finch, Watson, Maxwell, McCullum, Head (Carey, Cartwright)
Pierson (Inglis)
Abbott, Bravo, McClenaghan, Nabi, McKay, (Bird, Paris)

Can loophole Pierson and Carey in Rd.1 and also Bird and Nabi. Got the 6 big guns in there but means McKay finds his way back in.

Surely with a DGW he can at least put up a decent score, right?.............right?

Two bits of information from the last few days.

- Jackson Bird has been released from the Test team for the Sydney Smash, could be a bench option now.

I have played previously but have joined a super competitive comp this year and would appreciate some feedback on my team please.

Batters:
Finch, Mccullum, head, Pierson, Blizzard (Wiley, Carey)

Keepers:
Butler (Inglis)

Bowlers:
Watson, Maxwell, McClenaghan, Faulkner, Bird (Paris, Valente)

$33.5k left in the bank.

Notes on a couple of my selections:
Blizzard - if he opens the batting at that price it’s a no brainer plus the DG in round 1. If he doesn’t open then I’ll look at other options
McClenaghan - good value and should be thunders number 1 bowler this season. T20 specialist. Plus has the DG in round 1.
Faulkner - backing him in to get back to his best
Valente - but risky but think he is a chance with the heat not having a lot of choice after cutting and Steketee

Hey mate, welcome!

I think its a big call having someone like Willey sitting on the bench for the first GW, you need to weigh up whether that cash could be beneficial across the rest of the squad, or whether you're going to load up on players for DGW2. Only a call you can make though.

I have the same thought process as you on Blizzard, however not seeing him present for the practice match has me concerned. Hasn't been in great form for the ACT and not sure he'll grab that spot.

Have made my thoughts known on McClenaghan earlier, hope the pick works for those taking the punt.

Faulkner hard to ignore at that price, but won't bat above 7-8 so keep that in mind.

Valente probably behind Lalor & Doggett but can see the thought process. I'd expect the Heat to use Steketee/Cutting for their pace and Shadab/Swepson for spin. Whether they take in one of Lalor/Doggett/Valente or bat deep and chuck the ball to Labuschagne remains to be seen. Floros is also another AR option for the Heat.

Bird is now back with the Test team because of an injury to Starc, so you can rule that one out my friend.

Hope it goes well for you!

Added to the squad is Daniel Sams, who has been brought in as a replacement for Henry Thornton, ruled out of the tournament through injury, and Harry Conway who has been brought into the squad as a replacement for Mitch Starc, currently on national duty with the Australian Men’s team.

I don't think it's worth getting an unreliable player in a weak Thunder side just because they have a DGW.

Watto makes sense, some will take Buttler, and I guess maybe McClenaghan, Gibson (him over Blizz for me) and Green, but I don't think there's any point to loading up on Thunder guys.

Apologies when I said Patterson wouldn't open, he opened all 8 games last season for them so expect the same. Watto came in at 3. With no James Vince to open the batting this season, it'll be Gibson that starts ahead of Blizzard, I'm 99% sure it'll be that way. I think Fergie will bat ahead of Buttler who will come in at 5 though. I'll say Nair takes the final bowling spot and bats at 9.

I do love how a guy with 2 List A centuries from 14 matches, an overall average of 35 and pretty much always found himself batting at 7 is a Bowl Only in this game. Oh and batted at 5 in the last Futures League game.

Meanwhile, Luke Wright hasn't bowled a single over in about 4 seasons and somehow still has BAT/BWL DPP.

It's ridiculous haha.
Yeah, I have noticed that. Always makes me laugh.

Hughes
Roy
Maddinson
Henriques (c)
Billings
Silk
Botha
Abbott
Nevill (wk)
O'Keefe
Bollinger

Conway & Sams to miss
As for the Sixers, for most of the season they rolled with Botha at 6/7, alternating with Haddin. Will they go down the same route with Nevill keeping instead? I'm going to say they will start that way, especially if Moises isn't fit. So Silk and Sams miss out for my liking. You have the top 5 in the order they played in for most of last season too
Anyone think that Billings will keep, so they can play Silk + Conway/Sams? Neville isn't exactly suited to T20's.

Hey all, just thought I'd chuck this up for some feedback  :)

Finch, Maxwell, McCullum, Head, Matt Short // Maddinson, Voges
Buttler // Carey
Watson (c), Khan, D'Arcy Short, Ahmed, Nabi // Cartwright, Paris


3 dgw players for round 1 in Buttler, Watson and Ahmed.

Finch, Maxi, McCullum and Head self explanatory. Should all score well.
Matt Short has been in good form so hoping he gets a game, was batting middle order for Vic and usually bowled a few overs. Maddinson and Voges prices are a bargain for potential output.

Buttler for DGW, most likely trade next round.
Carey's price should increase, handy option through their DGW weeks, cashcow.

Watson a lock.
Short been going ok, bowling a bit so could be a chance for wickets.
Khan and Nabi should both score well.
Ahmed purely for DGW, will trade.
Cartwright here for dpp swing, cashcow.
Paris should take a few wickets, DGW round 2 should see a nice price rise early if named.

Hey mate,

Matt Short I doubt gets a game with how ridiculous the Gades' depth is, but up to you if you want to risk that.
D'Arcy Short however I really rate as a POD, could go bang if in the right headspace first up.
Which Khan? Both are good.

Everything else looks fine to me mate. :)

Alright, so as of 1:20pm ACST, this is what my team looks like, theres still a few points of uncertainty, but I'm fairly happy with it in the main.

Finch // McCullum // Roy // Head // Patterson x2 (Maddinson (loop) // Cartwright)
Peirson (Carey)
Watson x2 // Maxwell // Bravo // R.Khan // McClenaghan x2 (Doggett // Paris)

Covered most of these guys in my earlier post, but I still have a few new faces & points of contention

Patterson - Selected over Ferguson because he opens and is a bit more aggressive, simple as that. Will become a Scorcher or Heat player in Rd2 barring a masterclass. Please don't fail me Kurt.
McClenaghan - Forced by the absence of McKay, felt only 2 DGW players was running the gauntlet a bit too much. Likely to become Shadab or Tye next round as I don't really rate him. Nabi & Hastings two others unlucky to miss out.
R.Khan - Was originally going to wait until GW3 for him, but my word the more I watch of him, the more I fall in love with him. Going to be an absolute jet. 1/13 off 3 overs & a runout today in a scratch match.
Watson - I'm still not 100% sold, am tempted to rejig my team and bring in Buttler, but will hold firm for now. Becomes Willey next week anyway.
Maddinson - Will monitor tonight, and trade out Head if needed to take his score.
Doggett - In the Heat squad and is battling with Lalor for that 3rd seamer spot for tomorrow night. If he plays, great! DGW in Round 2, 20k, and was in good shield form. If not, will swap to Tom Rogers.
Roy - Still tossing up as to whether Ingram may be a better shout here.

So overall, I think 3 DGW players along with two Scorchers and two Heat already in prep for next round, and 2 Strikers to prep for Rd3, is a nice balance. It's not as DGW heavy as recent years for me but I can't justify anyone else (maybe Nair if he starts?) but I think it's a good all-round squad. Just fingers crossed that Lynn doesn't go ballistic and we should be fine!  ;D

Good luck everyone, a month of almost-nightly cricket awaits!  :-*

Feedback always appreciated!

Alright lads what is the go on these guys:

Alex Doolan - Opened in the warm up game. Worth a look at only 30k?

Chris Lynn - Under an injury cloud coming off the shoulder surgery. Looks like most have been scared off him. Could create a huge advantage if he goes big in R1. Heat also have the double game in R2 so you'd think most would try get him by then. 

Moises Henriques - Sustained a recent injury but is named for the Sixers tonight. Anyone know the severity of the injury and if if will affect his bowling?

Title: Re: BBL|07: Official Fantasy & Supercoach Discussion

I got Greeny in my team currently. I think most have gone with McClenaghan though. 5k cheaper and a bit of an unknown around these parts.

Moises Henriques - Sustained a recent injury but is named for the Sixers tonight. Anyone know the severity of the injury and if if will affect his bowling?

I think personally, the Cane's lineup is still under a bit of a cloud in regards to predictions and who bats where. Doolan is definitely a potential opener for them, but I'd almost think Maddinson is more nailed on if you don't have him.

Yeah thats the issue with Lynn (risk/reward), definitely potentially a huge advantage, but I don't have the funds to afford him and still be happy with the rest of my squad. No preparation is a worry. Could do McClenaghan to Nabi and Finch to Lynn but I'm not sure that's worth it at the moment. Can definitely do Watson -> Willey and Finch -> Lynn next week if I see fit.

Henriques I think you'll be able to tell whether he will bowl tonight based on the Sixers lineup before the game. If they run with Silk at 6 and then the 4 bowlers + Nevill, I'd say it's a certainty he'll roll the arm over. If it's Billings (wk) and 5 bowlers I doubt it, same if Conway comes in for Silk. Long-term though I'm really not too certain whether he will turn to himself that much.

Levi hit the nail on the head with Green. McClenaghan bats (or should bat) one spot higher and is 5k cheaper. I don't particularly rate him though and I wanted Green, but only 4k currently ITB. :(

Watson (C) great, Nair fantastic, Green & Patterson average. Seeing Patterson hit fielders time and time again was infuriating.

Because of the last minute commotion and the site going down, I actually have Buttler on my bench, I'm tempted to start Peirson or Carey instead but I'm not sure I'm that ballsy.

Blizzard 11 (listed at #4 but comes in at #7, flower off Thunder), Roy 2 and Butler (12) as VC over Watson (121). Good start.

Thank god for McClenaghan. Also had Gibson and Fekete on the bench as loopholes but won't be taking either of that filth.

Was tossing up between

McClenaghan vs Ahmed: picked McClenaghan which looked excellent after his first 5 balls, looked terrible after Ahmed's four overs, ended up ok (would've been better with both)

Fekete vs Nair: picked Fekete which ended up bad, and looks worse given how early Nair came into bat.

Had Watto VC and Buttler as well, with Maddinson on the bench.

Still can't decide the final make-up of the rest of my team. Still struggling for another cheap bowler bench option as I don't trust Paris' JS, which makes missing Sams and Nair annoying.

So my team is as follows,

Tim Ludeman (Carey)

Shane Watson, Mark Steketee, Chris Green, Shadab Khan, James Faulkner (Joel Paris, Andrew Fekete 28)

If i field Paris and Cartwright, Will i get Maddo and Fekete score or will it take the lowest out of Maddo and Pierson as they both play as batters and Faulkner and Fekete as the lowest bowlers?

Or is it wise to trade Faulkner/Carey to Willey and another perth player getting ready for next week and keep the 47 and 28 plus another game on bench?

You’ll get the lowest score so don’t go down that route.

I probably wouldn’t bother taking the 28, back someone to beat that. I’m taking the 47 though as my final spot I was a bit unsure about and Willey is someone I want so that makes it easy.

That's from the first page. They could still roll with all 4. The heartbreaking news about Klinger really means I have no idea what will happen with their batting.

So I'm hearing that Cam Green from the Scorchers is available to play but only as a batsman

Will probably bat somewhere from 5-7 so doesn't have the best scoring potential.
Though scorchers have the DG next round, he is only 20k and a DPP.
Could be a decent bench option, only takes one good game to generate a bit of cash

You would have thought so but he batted at #4 in the 'Canes practice match with Short and Doolan opening. Bailey in at first drop.

With the way you have started I'd be inclined to bank the 47 but you might want to risk it for the weekly prize.

Thought it too hard to loop both Sams and Maddo, so did stick with Wade, also brought in Stoinis today after squads today, hoping Archer doesn't bite me now!

But still have Mcullum, Big Show, Bravo, Finch in my side. Really hoping on a high score this week. It was that one spot with Stoinis that had me baffled all week and still! So went with Stoinis after his amazing AUS form and given he said he wants to return to the national side via the BBL ;)   .......   ???

Almost spent the Stoinis money on NCN but given we don't know the Scorches teams yet :-\  guess this is why the fantasy BBL is such a great challenge! Keeps us occupied though :P

Hello. 
My team is as follows:

Lynn, Finch, Maxwell, Bailey, Head (Maddison and Doolan)

Butler (Carey)

Laughlin, Short, S.Khan, Stoinis, Henriques (Cartwright and Doggett). 

My question is since Lynn didn't play does that mean I will get Maddison or Doolan's score. 

Thanks.

Think it would have to be either Gibson or Blizzard. Gibson probably had the worse innings but Blizzard batted very far down the order so he might be out of favour.

Yes, you'll get whoever scores the lowest out of Doolan or Maddison

So, If i change Doolan for Voges that would mean I would be guaqrenetted 47 points?

Yeah stoked! Really got lucky to get every huge score! Did a fair bit of homework though and with gut feel! I've learnt to back my gut with everything! Never be disappointed by making that educated guess only to backfire! Back your gut "First instinct"  ;)
Got a bit lucky though, never had Lynn (Hoping he went poor R1, didn't play anyway. Didn't go with Archer, Roy, Green, Peiterson etc ...  but nailed Sams and Stoines

Finch, Maxwell, Bravo, McCullum, Wade - Doolan, Maddinson
Jos Buttler - Carey

Reports are both Cam Green and Joel Paris won't be playing tomorrow

Likely inclusions in the XI are Josh Philippe and Will Bosisto

They were talking to Tye on local radio this morning and he pretty much confirmed it, he said the batting line up is still up in the air

Likely XI is below, Wayne Clark was very confident with the openers but I reckon  3-7 will change depending on how the game is going

Philippe
Wiley
Bosisto
Cartwright
Voges
Turner
Inglis
Agar
Richardson
Tye
Johnson

Philippe becomes a must have.

Haha don't pick him just because I said he might open  :P

Bit more info on him, he is actually a keeper but his batting has really come on strong this season, highlighted in his 88 vs England in a tour match.
His dad is a senior member of the WACA so he will probably be out to prove his worth!

To be honest if I was going to pick one I would lean towards Bosisto

Played 3 shield matches this year 289 @ 48.2 from 6 innings including 3 50's, made a double ton and another ton playing for the WA u23's earlier in the season
Also he bowls a bit of off spin and with questions over Turners ability to bowl at the moment there is a opening for a second spinner behind Agar to throw a few over down

McCullum said Cutting would be coming in between the 12th-15th over almost every game, no matter what but his bowling looked tripe.

Shadab looked like he bowled great, albeit on a favourable surface.

Tye should be reliable, but still some unknown in BBL07.

I've got Shadab, will most likely be trading in Cutting, and do not have Tye so I'd suggest Cutting.

The chatter has dried up boys :(

786 last round with no Tye. Dropped 147 places to 392. Considering the damage could've been a lot worse, and was for many more without the bearded man, I'll happily take that.

I've done

Finch -> Sams (via Bravo)
Shadab -> Laughlin

which leaves me with 70k in the bank.

and will do

Bosisto -> Weatherald/Neser/Stanlake/Hughes/Roy/Botha (still deciding whether to have the DGW player this week or next)

Leaves me at

Bravo // McCullum // Head // Ingram // Willey (Maddinson // Cartwright)
Carey (Peirson)
Watson // Laughlin // Rashid // ??? // Sams (Nair // Cam Green)

Strikers DGW R3 // Sixers DGW R4

Not sure whether to play Sams or Nair tonight, feel its a bit of a conflict of interest to play Sams having 3 of the Strikers top 4 bats   :-X

Onward and upward! Hopefully a move north in the rankings this week.

Travvy needs to work on his captaincy. Siddle should’ve bowled his 4th over earlier on. Thought Laughlin had to bowl over 20 but Neser redeemed himself with 5 great overs. If we can get Colin Ingram firing I think we will be quite a force. Not quite Gades and Scorchers level, but we could give them a run.

Big test against the Heat on NYE now.

If we can get Colin Ingram firing I think we will be quite a force. Not quite Gades and Scorchers level, but we could give them a run.

Big test against the Heat on NYE now.

Early days I know but thats my top 3, followed by Brisbane when Lynn is fully fit.

Sydney x2, Tas, Stars just don't do enough for me

Actually had the V on Carey but swapped it for Head yesterday ::)  Still wasn't bad Head though :o

Carey, Alex! Could be a lock for the ODI's next month but, how the flower is he supposed to push claims for the South African tour when there is no FC cricket but only slap and giggle before the AUS test team leaves for SA ???

Just saw this on FB.

"The Sydney Sixers advise that Moises Henriques will be taking some personal leave from the BBL.
He will return when he feels ready to continue in the tournament.

Out of respect for Moises' privacy the Club will not make any further comment."


Hopefully we see him out there again soon

997 all out. Better than everyone in my leagues except Koop who went 1059 and out only uniques were Tye + Cutting (Me) vs Botha + Nair.

Captaining Rash Khan was a 72 point better move than Head and I only did it because I didn't really think about it and wanted to support our gun leggie 8)

Haha was a great matchup, was cheering Nair pretty hard as he got those cheap poles as the Cane's were imploding.  ;D ;D

Yeah captaining Rash a great move. Didn't see any of the game as my ice-cream pod isn't near a screen out in the SACA members area, but heard a lot of cheering so that's always a good sign!

162nd for the round, up to 111th overall. Already have 3 sixers before trades so fingers crossed that trend continues north!

Post by: Gigantor on January 01, 2018, 03:46:18 PM
Was thinking about how unreliable the batsmen have been this year other than Watto so I had a look at this years results compared to last year

BBL 7
24 Innings, 146.3 runs per inn, 7.5 wickets per inn

BBL 6
(First 24 Innings)
24 Innings, 162.5 runs per inn, 6.7 wickets per inn

(Whole Season)
70 Innings, 159.5 runs per inn, 6.43 wickets per inn


So the stats definitely show that results are more bowler dominated, less runs, more wickets
Makes me wary of picking pure batsmen, look at how Finch and McCullum are going, one good innings between them from 7 attempts!

At 3am as I was trying to fall asleep my brain wandered into telling me Roy, Botha and Abbott were the three players to buy for this round. So I just needed to find 3 players to transfer out. I let them be Laughlin, Ingram and Cutting. Watto will be my VC, Botha my C.

I also have no bench whatsoever (Head, Philippe, Peirson, Khan, Doggett) so everyone better play :P

Im on 508 with Roy, Maddo, Botha, Dwarshuis (Captian) and Finch?

111th here and I'm not expecting to move up much if at all if thats any indication. 509 with Roy, Maddo, Sams, Botha (C), Silk & Bravo to come. Another Finch failure would be fantastic, but on the VERY short square boundaries in Geelong I can see him going absolutely berserk.

Oh and picking Roy this week over Billings & Dwarshuis has proven to be a master-stroke!  ::)

Title: Re: BBL|07: Official Fantasy & Supercoach Discussion
Post by: Koop on January 03, 2018, 04:00:08 PM
So with the announcement of the ODI squad, we will have 5 players returning to the T20 arena to now consider.

Lyon (88k) - took 7 wickets in 5 matches to end the BBL season,  inflated by his 4/23 in the semi-final against the Brisbane Heat. In the other games he took 0/24 off 3 against the Renegades, 0/20 off 2 against the Thunder, 2/18 off 4 against the Stars, and 1/28 against the Scorchers. 88k seems a lot to pay for someone who won't bat higher than 9 and only took wickets in 60% of his games, but he is in some scintillating form and has the potential to be a fantastic POD. As for whose spot he takes, you'd expect he is a direct Somerville replacement.

Bird (31.2k) - Could this be the end of Sean Abbott? You'd be extremely stiff to drop either Sams (6 wickets in 4 games at a 6.8 ER) or Dwarshuis (3 wickets in 2 games and 36 runs with the bat, fantastic SR over the last two seasons.) so how does Bird fit in? Granted he isn't the best white ball performer. 0/28 (2), 0/36 (4), 0/37 (4), 0/21 (2) &  1/39 (4) after he returned last year do not make for pretty reading, especially after what happened at the G, but 25 wickets in 4 Shield matches is not to be sneezed at. Bench option for sure if he starts.

Bancroft (30k) - Seems too good to be true, 30k for a guy that will slot straight back into the Scorchers team (potentially as an opener) and who made 137 runs from 6 innings at 34 in BBL05 batting between 4-7? Straight in for a fattened cow (Sams, Nair) as soon as he is available, which, surprise surprise, should be for the first game of Round 8, a Scorchers DGW! ;)

Khawaja (113.6k) - Will take Ryan Gibsons spot and will bat either 3 or 4. Missed the entirety of BBL06 but it is well known what Uzzie can produce. 375 runs from 4 games in BBL05 at an SR of 163, 162 runs in 4 games in BBL03 & 380 runs in 6 games in the JLT cup in October are just a few of the impressive domestic tournaments he's had facing the white ball. Could you go there at that price though?

Handscomb (34.7k) - Already played one game for a score of 32, but will be available fully after the Test (you'd assume unless he gets released early again lol), has been solid without being spectacular in his previous BBL campaigns, still for 34k, there are a lot worse options out there to swap Peirson (*shudder*) to, especially with the Stars double still to come into play. Should keep over Dunk too.

404 with Botha (c), Abbott, Roy, Maddinson, Bravo left so that ends my chances of doing well this season

Botha 3fa and Roy 70, just you watch m8.

Yeah so looks like around 850 to 900 will be par? Ill be happy if i can remain inside the top 800 as ive already got 4 strikers players for next week so going to go all out with strikers to try and gain.

I have 3 and am potentially planning to do the same thing by trading Laughlin & Ingram back in & grabbing Neser or Weatherald, we'll see how it works out though because there's a few Hobart players putting their hands up now as well. Archer, Short, Wade all looking very good options, while I could see merit in all of McDermott, Doolan, George & DC at a stretch.

Already come up with some trades this week I'm considering.

Dwarshuis > R.Khan - has the bye and he only managed 2 decent scores
Roy> Neser - has been shocking and has the bye.

Would leave me with 5 strikers but I still think I will run with Head VC.
Any thoughts?

What does that leave your team looking like? On face value that looks solid, although not sure our batting lineup fails enough v the Canes and Sixers to make Neser as relevant as he was against the Heat, but you never know.

Anybody rolling the dice and going Mills for DGW ?
Title: Re: BBL|07: Official Fantasy & Supercoach Discussion
Post by: Koop on January 03, 2018, 11:58:33 PM
Moved up to 42nd. The decision to select Roy over Billings & Dwarshuis was a bad call, but thankfully not damaging.

Got a few calls to make over the next few weeks, maximising the next few DGW's is looking to be crucial to any assault. 299 points behind 1st so certainly nowhere near out of it.

So the next few DGW's are as follows

Strikers DGW, Sixers BYE
Hurricanes DGW, Thunder BYE ( I expect the internationals to leave after this round)
Scorchers/Thunder DGW, Heat/Hurricanes BYE
Hurricanes/Sixers/Heat DGW, Scorchers/Thunder/Renegades BYE

I currently have Head, Willey & Roy I need to get out before they leave. Roy is leaving my team this round barring an LTI to Maddo, Head will probably follow the round after and Willey last.

I currently only have one Hurricane (Archer) and need to weigh up whether I'm going all out with 3 strikers this round (Weatherald, Laughlin, Ingram) to join the 3 I have (Head, Carey, Khan) or whether I grab Short instead of Ingram and continue to plan ahead slightly. Adelaide have 2 seemingly easy matchups though so this may be the opportunity.

The only Scorcher I have is Willey, which is slightly problematic considering they have the DGW in 2 weeks, Watson & Nair are fine and will probably be joined by Khawaja for their DGW. McCullum & Peirson are my current Heat players, Burns looks in ominous form so I'm hoping he isn't at an unreasonable price in a few GW's time, Shah is a gun but expensive.


So I'm thinking

Roy (Maddinson if injured) -> Weatherald
Sams -> Laughlin
Botha -> Short/Ingram

Which would leave my team as

Watson // McCullum // Head // Weatherald // Short/Ingram (Maddinson/Roy // Silk)
Carey (Peirson)
Bravo // Archer // Khan // Laughlin // Willey (Nair // Cam Green)

Good luck to everyone! Crazy period ahead.

Anybody rolling the dice and going Mills for DGW ?

I actually didn't realise how much cash he'd dropped until I just checked, wowee thats tempting.  :o Current plan is Short, Archer, McDermott & Wade but that could change.

^ Ingram easily over Short for mine Koop, and that's coming from one of D'Arcy's biggest fans. Hit or miss player coming off 97 vs proven T20 gun who has two chances to put together a decent total. Colin is well overdue for some runs too, though I did use that same logic for captaining Roy and that turned out nicely.

Speaking of which, it just goes to show how much luck is involved in this game. Had I stuck the VC on Short instead of emergency loopholing him, I wouldn't have captained Roy and would be 119 points better off as a result. Would be ranked 65th instead of 142nd.

I still haven't learnt my lesson either so Ingram C it is (again). Has been done for pace a bit in his innings thus far but surely this is the week he fires.

Dropped down to 515 after being inside top 250 two rounds ago which is disappointing. Abbott captain killed me along with Roy just being an absolute spud. Gin for to try once again maximise the DGW while starting to offload those international and ODI players.

This week trade plans are:
Roy -> Wade
Dwarshius -> Rashid
Abbott -> Siddle

This leaves me with
Watson, McCullum, Head (C), Finch, Wade (Maddinson, Gibson)
Carey (Peirson)
Tye, McClenaghan, Willey, Khan, Siddle (Doggett, Cartwright)

Speaking of which, it just goes to show how much luck is involved in this game. Had I stuck the VC on Short instead of emergency loopholing him, I wouldn't have captained Roy and would be 119 points better off as a result. Would be ranked 65th instead of 142nd.

I still haven't learnt my lesson either so Ingram C it is (again). Has been done for pace a bit in his innings thus far but surely this is the week he fires.

You're a brave man Ada, best of luck!  :D

Ada will be laughing! A little slow as usual to get going but he's motoring along now!

Good to see him finally repay my faith. Certainly didn't expect Short to back up last week with another 96 however!

Ingram 86x2=172 (+another game)
Short 138
Jofra 93
Khan 76 (+another game)
Head 57 (+another game)
Carey 29 (+another game)
Laughlin 5 (+another game)

Isn't the worst start. Bravo, McCullum, Willey and Tye to come with 2 trades up my sleeve. I might do the unthinkable and trade Tye and hope he fails to give myself another POD.

If you have a Sixers all rounder in your batters switch him with Bravo/Watson/Maxwell. Otherwise you would need to trade one of them out for a sixer if you haven't used all 3 yet.

Not as impressive as some of the scores I've seen around the leagues, but am 591 with Rashid (c), Head, Carey, Laughlin, Weatherald, Ingram and Watson to come.

Really need both Khan and Laughlin to play tomorrow night but I have an awful feeling that LOC plays for one of them, either for a Rashid 'injury', or to play 2 spinners at Spotless. Laughlin was made the scapegoat when we played Stanlake for the WACA last season, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him make way if we do decide to go with 2 spinners, despite the wickets.

Head is a nutcase.

BBL is such a luck-based game, seen a few big scores around this week. Didn't realise so many had Doggett!

Scored 997 which was enough to climb up 10 spots to 32nd overall. The fun starts now though.



Going

Head -> Short
Laughlin -> McDermott (via Archer/Carey)
Weatherald -> Bancroft

Leaves team at

Archer (c) // Ingram // McCullum // Silk // Carey (Watson // Bancroft)
McDermott (Peirson)
Short (vc) // Bravo // Rashid // Willey // Sams (Nair // Cam Green)

Very soon! The squad meets on the 14th, but guys like Finchy, for example, are playing their last game tonight.

Getting together on the 10th I'm fairly sure. Lynn has clearance to play the game against Hobart and will join a day late. So everyone will be gone by the end of this round.

They'll play this round mate. Willey is in tonight's squad as is Finch. Head should play tomorrow night.

If you had to pick one, I think DC's relevance depends on whether Milenko is dropped for a more notable bowler. If so, I don't think DC gets more than 1-2 overs at max (and a very real chance of none), for someone batting 5-6 that's not what you want. If Milenko keeps his place, DC becomes a very viable option this GW imo. We've seen Bailey's reluctance to give him the ball lol.

So yeah, Clive if Milenko gets dropped, DC if he doesnt.

Confirmation for you mate: 'Tuesday night’s match against the Stars will be captain Travis Head's last before he is due to fulfil international duties in the Gillette ODI Series against England.' - from the squad article.


Thanks mate, Whats the chances of Readorn playing? Surely he comes in and bowls a few overs and bats at 5-6?

Potentially for sure, seemed pretty cooked last big bash but has done reasonably well in Tassie/Gold Coast grade competitions and in the Hong Kong 6's in the last few months, so you never know. Not sure the Canes will change much after two wins on the trot though.

Billings > Christian
Cartwright > Bailey (1k short of my preferred choice in McDermott but George is due anyway)



Shortx2, Baileyx2, Head, Ingram, McCullum (Roy, Henriques)

Wadex2 (Carey)

Archerx2, Christianx2, Bravo, Khan, Willey (Laughlin, Lyon)

VC on DC. Willey will be my fallback option if he scores below 35. Wouldn't mind Roy going ballistic in his final game for the 6ers so I can loophole him and trade Head in the process (in prep for his ODI departure).

Bravo, Willey, Laughlin, Dogget, Maxwell (Watson, Edwards).

Ive got Neser, Laughlin, Bazza and Christian to come and he got Ingram and Short. Right now I'm 20 points behind. He has captain Jofra as I got vice and can loophole Jofra in if needed? Just wondering would you guys go a POD captain like Neser, Laughlin or Bazza and try and kill the cash my way or would you go safe with Jofra to cancel it out or Khan but only get one lot more points?

PS thanks Christan, Turner and Willey

I'd probably roll the dice on Rashid or Baz if you're feeling particularly ballsy. The main reason I didn't VC Jofra in the first place was because with Milenko in the side he's probably not going to get much opportunity with the willow and he'd been bowling so well that I thought it might be time batsmen finally get a hold of him (which they did), mind you he got pretty unlucky on occasions bowling to Billings.

He might bounce next game but I think with Rashid you're always guaranteed economy points to go with his poles and the Strikers love a good collapse so he's always a chance of some late order runs. He might even get bumped up the order as a pinch hitter after his little cameo a few days ago.

Thanks for the insight but didn't see this till lockout. Now I lead by 62 with Christian and Baz vs Short. Should get another 100 point gain to lead by 300. Tempted to chuck the captain on bazza and hope he goes crazy instead of jofra.

Nah I don't have him and it's killed me a couple times. Also for captain this week could he be worth a shout or would it be safer to go for Khawaja/Watson

I would lean towards Johnson, though Watto has bowled a bit more recently which is handy

Don't Perth play a game in Alice Springs this week? This is pure guesswork but Mitch Johnson might not make the hike. A little something to consider perhaps.

Moved up to 46 overall after a score of 1005, despite no captain Short (not that I considered him for the C anyway).

I am absolutely flowered this week though. Already have 1 donut after trades, but could potentially have 3 if Moises and Lyon don't get up for Saturday. Have gone Willey > Klinger, Head > Turner and Roy > Vince.

Klingerx2, Turnerx2, Vincex2, Ingram, Henriques (McCullum, Bailey)

Carey (Wade)

Watsonx2, Bravo, Khan, Lyon, Short (Archer, Christian)

Thinking Klinger for the C at this stage.

He does have a double, but I have some money so I could turn him to a better DGW player than him.

One transfer left, $28,300. Baz, DC, Short, Doggo, Peirson have to stay or be traded to someone else on the bye right now.

Peirson to Wade, Weatherald to Faulkner/Silk, Doggo to Cutting. Some thins that have come to mind.

Looks like not seeing the Vince news in time was a blessing in disguise. Would have swapped him out for Turner and he's already got 26 points on Ashton and that's before the likely +20 for SR and any fielding points.

Who are people looking to get in this week? Getting rid of 3 of Bresnan, Khawaja, Watson and Bravo so funds won't be an issue. looking at Archer and McCullum and I already have Short in. Possibly looking at Maxwell to prepare for next week but it seems a waste not getting in someone with a double gameweek...
Title: Re: BBL|07: Official Fantasy & Supercoach Discussion
Post by: Koop on January 14, 2018, 12:09:04 AM
It's a game of such fine margins, the last two rounds I've had a few line-ball calls in regards to captains. If I'd nailed them (Short, Agar) I'd currently be sitting 9th, instead I sit 85th after an extremely disappointing score 2 rounds in a row. Just kinda reminds me that I've ridden my luck to even be in the top 100 anyway, hopefully, I can hold on for a top 100 finish and try again next year.

I've got problems though, Sams getting dropped, Peirson getting demoted to 7 and Silk dropping to 5/6 to accommodate the returning egos have nullified any 3x DGW preparations I made. I also have zero Stars in Round 9 and 1 Renegade for round 10. Not fun

Currently looking at

Nair - Denly/Burns
Watson - Short
Agar -> Henriques

Leaves team at

McCullum // Denly // Ingram // McDermott // Silk (Khawaja // Bancroft)
Carey (Peirson)
Short // Archer // Khan // Henriques // Sams (Bravo // Paris)

Obviously, that means that I cop a donut if Sams misses both, but I'm not sure a double Peirson is going to do much better if I re-work my trades. Although I could potentially grab Handscomb for next round and pass on Denly/Burns. Thoughts?

I wouldn't waste your time with Handscomb, if you want a Stars player do you have the funds to go Nair to Maxi or even KP or Worrall?
And for Pierson, I'm in the same boat, unless the Heat bat first and he's named to open I'm fielding Carey over him even with the DG

Sams has been unlucky to miss out, arguably bowling better than Abbott. I'd be inclined to stick with what you've got as having Denly and or Burns will be important this week and Handscomb is unlikely to get close to what they'd put up. Hopefully Sams gets in for at least one game, but if Pearson goes well in the opening game of the round would it be somehow possible to loophole him on? In fact, he'll be stuck as McDermott also plays the first game, bugger  :-\

It's hard to think who the Sixers would leave out to bring in Sams though, they had enough blokes to cover all 20 overs and batted incredibly deep tonight, although not required, with Dwarshius listed to come in at 10. Coming off a win, perhaps it would be safer to put Peirson on who could perhaps score behind the stumps if not with the bat?



Personally, scored 897 for the week and shot up in the rankings, organised for this week with 7/11 on field with the double game after trades, and Coleman sitting on the bench as coverage plus being ready to go for the Stars double the following week. I had thought about bringing in more Stars, but, other than Maxwell, they are a rather unreliable and fantasy irrelevant team.

Dunk has had a woeful tournament and is pretty much unpickable, KP has had one good knock and that's about it. Faulkner has been slow and painful with the bat and expensive with the ball. Handscomb is cheap but most keepers are scoring pretty poorly. Gulbis, Gotch, Fallins, Boland and Bowe could all be in or out of the side while Duke has been very poor. The only other guy worth looking at is Frankie Worrall who looked threatening with the ball but has only shown one game's worth of form.

Then we've got the Renegades double to finish us off the week after and the one fella I was interested in, other than Bravo who is already in my side, was Cam White, who is of course now unavailable due to national duties. Jack Wildermuth is not too expensive and can do it with bat and ball so he may be worth a look, plus Pollard is cheap after a dreadful showing last season and could bat in the middle over and send down 3 or 4 overs. Other than those, Hogg is nearly buggered, Richardson not overly impressive and Tom Cooper is no certainty to bat not bowl it seems. Harris has struggled while Hodge, Tremain, Short, Webster, Ludeman and Holland don't really look like beating a good one game score with two cracks at it.

Finally, captaincy this week, I imagine Short will be very, very common. However, I'll be using the VC on him with a chance to drop the skipper on a Sixers player should he fail against the Heat. McCullum or Archer would be good uniques but it'd be brave to not pick Short after he put up 250+ from two appearances less than a week ago.

Good luck to all for the run home.

Post by: Gigantor on January 14, 2018, 12:52:50 AM
I'm going,

Watson -> McCullum
Turner -> Henriques
Johnson -> Maxwell

Could get anther DG player in instead of Maxi but this sets me up for rd 9 and I already have 7 DG players and don't what to roll the dice on a unreliable pick like Burns/Dwarshuis/Denly/Steekete/GOAT

Leaves me with

Archer Doolan McCullum Silk Maxwell (Nair Bancroft)

Carey (Peirson)

Short Henriques Doggett Khan Laughlin (Cartwright Agar)

Next round I'll bring in 3 Stars players or 2 and Bravo, although Bravo has been a bit off the last 3 games I got lucky this rd not having him and I'm not sure if i want take the chance again haha

Short [vc], McCullum, Maddinson, Maxwell, Watson (Weatherald, Bancroft)
Wade (Carey)
Christian, Lyon, Khan, Laughlin, Bravo [c] (Cartwright, Doggett)
$32k

With my second transfer I want to move on Weatherald because he's not performing. It's who I go to that I'm not really sure about. I don't really want to get another Hurricane, the Heat don't have anyone good, so that leaves the Sixers. Then I want to get a Stars player for next week. Also bear in mind all those potential loopholes that I'm lining up :P

If you want someone from the Sixers I think it has to be Henriques or Silk as I think Denly is just out of your price range. I wouldn't say the Heat have no one good though Cutting and Burns are both viable options this week.

Henriques for me, batting at 4 plus a chance to jag a few wickets. Silk now down at 5 and doesn't bowl.
Cutting maybe, he doesn't bat as high but his bowling has improved the last few games after going the journey early in the tournament

Not a fan of either Burns or Cutting, the latter burned me once this season already so he's a no-go.

It'll be Khawaja and Weatherald to Lyon and Moises, then I'll wait to see how Doggo performs tonight but I'm lining up a left field move in Carey to Ludeman (or Dunk) for some $$ and a probable starter for the DGW both have coming up.

Might be good news for those who fielded Peirson
flower me, didn't need that news. Brought him in for the DGW and was happy with his first game and now this. Good fun.

His one score will probably still out score guys like Silk, Henriques and Denly   ::)

Actually can just go Peirson to Handscombe and leave Carey on the field, but judging how this season is going Handscombe will go large and Carey will be back haha

These 2 Sixers games have been terrible for my team! Bowling first and dominating the opposition meaning Henriques doesn't need to bowl. Then in turn meaning there's very few runs for Henriques, Maddison and Silk to get :(

Trading in Faulkner, Lyon and Bravo

Will only have 2 Stars but I don't care because I'm sick of trading in DG players who score less than 40 from 2 games haha

Also willing to cop a donut with Carey. Would rather have Lyon and Bravo than deal with Handscomb or wait and trade in shower like Ludemann or Neville

Pretty happy with the team, still not sure who to field out of Cartwright and Nair.

Why not switch Short with Nair and play Laughlin?

Edit: Nair has been suspended from bowling so if you didnt want Laughlin then Cartwright will be a better option than Nair

So after the Nair news I've rejigged my trades and I'm left with picking one of Cartwright, Henriques and Laughlin.
Leaning towards Laughlin, Henriques was poo last round so I can't bring myself to pick him and Whiteman is back for the Scorchers so there could be a bit less batting opportunities for Cartwright

Just realised I have made the terrible mistake of not changing my vc after reversing my trades for the hundredth time so am left with minimal captain options. Definitely going to loophole as it can't be a dgw player. Thinking Short into Bravo but I also have Ingram Bancroft and Maddinson who I also feel could do well. Any quick thoughts appreciated.

Strikers hurt more, we lose Head and Stanlake too. No other team in finals contention loses more than 2 players, Thunder conveniently don’t lose anyone (Khawaja not picked?). Also quite surprising that Mitch Marsh hasn’t been picked in the T20 squad so will play BBL finals. And don’t get me started on how Jhye Richardson is going to South Africa yet he is ALSO not picked in the T20 squad, the format where he’s actually decent and somewhat proven in.

Just from that game it looks like there could be a lot of decent DGW options for next week. Ludeman opening again, Pollard looked alright, Hodge looked good, White and Bravo have both been good all season, Tremain looked decent as well. Think I will be loading up on Gades next week.

I was thinking the opposite, feel like I'm better off backing in guys like Agar, Short, Khan and look to maximise my loophole options

Here's my take on the 11 Gades who just played

Bravo - Lock

Will consider:
Cooper - Bats at 4, chance to jag a sneaky wicket
Pollard - Bowls, can get some late innings runs
Wildermuth - Same as Pollard
Tremain - Looks likely to take wickets

Unlikley to pick:
White - Strong chance to miss the second game
Harris - 4/8 scores under 10 is a worry

No Chance:
Hogg - Looks cooked
Hodge - Two scores over 18 in 7 attempts
Ludeman - Doesn't look like making runs
Richardson - Been going the journey and not taking wickets, also just bowled 18 balls without a single dot!


I already have Bravo and will get 2 from the "Will Consider" list and probably use my 3rd trade to loophole guys like Bancroft/McCullum/Maxi
Title: Re: BBL|07: Official Fantasy & Supercoach Discussion
Post by: fanTCfool on January 23, 2018, 01:03:17 AM
Already have Bravo, plus Wildermuth waiting on the pine. Will add two, perhaps three more DGWs to bring us home. Hopefully Macca Harvey gets a run for the Gades as an ultra cheap option.

Nope because if they wrote down the other Richardson, then Renegades would be better off and Scorchers worse off, which won't go down well with Justin Langer who is the sole national team selector when the BBL is on.

Tonight a good reason why giving yourself a second chance could come back to haunt you. Seen a couple of teams that went elsewhere with the C after having the VC on Maxwell.


Also, Garry, what the hell was that?! 2 dot balls only :'( Hopefully he can snag a catch
Wicket as I type, I didn't think he'd get another over. All good now :)

Pietersen -> Nevill
Doggo -> Cooper
Faulkner -> Archer

Means I have:
Bats: Cooper, Harris, Ludeman, Short, Bancroft (Maddinson, McCullum)
Keep: Nevill [c] (Carey)
Bowl: Bravo [vc], Archer, Khan, Maxwell, Watson (Christian, Lyon)

Before trades I was pretty happy with how my onfield 11 was looking, which is why I went for the Nevill trade, allowing me to start Carey and Ludeman. Fielding Ludes over McCullum who'd been pretty subpar this tournament. Then 2nd trade I wanted to push Christian to the bench, so grabbing Cooper subbing Maxwell down does that. Then finally I turned my worst onfield player (Faulkner) to the highest averaging player that I didn't own, who also happens to be playing bottom of the table this round (Archer).

I would lean towards Agar, has the higher floor, almost guaranteed to give you at least 30. Ussie is one poor shot away from giving you a zero and his ceiling isn't any higher than Agar's.

But I am a die hard Scorchers fan so there's that to consider as well  ;D

Faulkner > Cooper

Bravo (C), Cooper, Maxwell, McCullum, Henriques, (Bancroft, Doolan)
Carey (Peirson)
Pollard, Short, Archer, Khan, Agar (Cartwright, Doggett)

Not sure what to do with my last trade.
1. Take a punt with Wildermuth/Tremain/Harris
2. Use it to loophole Bancroft
3. Field Bancroft and trade McCullum to Khawaja

Leaning towards option 2, sick of getting burnt by spud DG players and Khawaja is not that big an improvement over Baz.

I've completely botched this. Harris wasn't in the 13, then Hodge pulled out of the 13, Harris came in. And is straight back into the XI. He better play badly and be dropped for next game as I ended up benching for McCullum >:( (Or Baz can just go out and score 100 off 50 balls I'll take that too)

Missed a lot of the first innings, and only just realised Khawaja isn't even playing. Was it known he wouldn't play before I asked this question? :-[

In other news, I realised 3 minutes after the game started I forgot to make my trades ??? Only player I was going to bring in from this game was Cooper so no damage done......yet.

Going to be an interesting week for the Scorchers, the loss of Agar is massive.

Mitch Marsh is available, but going in with Voges as our only spin option doesn't seem likely. But on the other hand I'm not sure they will throw the kid Haydan Morton into the deep end during finals plus it would weaken our batting a fair bit.
My call is MMarsh in for Agar and we'll just find a way to win without spin :)  (or Langer will work his magic and Agar will still play  :P)


As far as fantasy goes some tough choices to make around loop holing and VC picks as these could be the difference as we will all have very similar teams I think

Atm I'm going Christian and Turner as loop hole options and MMarsh as VC

Keeper is a tough position, if you loophole guys like McDermott or Wade and they fail your only option is Ludeman  :(

Wow, I put my team together (without seeing this post) and I settled on looping in Turner and Christian with MMarsh VC. Only trouble I see is what if both fail but Marsh works, how do we loop in? So a the moment I'm rolling with Wade and Carey as keepers, so Carey can be the C and I just back Wade in.

Cooper, Harris, Bancroft, MMarsh [vc], Sutherland (Turner, Harvey)
Carey (Wade)
Bravo, Neser, J.Richardson, Pollard, Cormack (Christian, Crone)

My first draft, guys in red shouldn't play, all are Gades or Strikers so won't be locked out. Even with Carey I have $285k left over so swapping two of them out won't have $$ problems (I have $1,260,400 to spend all up). I'm clearly banking on Scorchers/Gades to get wins haha

Voges said on the radio on Aussie Day that if the game against the Strikers was a final SMarsh would have played. Should definitely get up

Ok with this I think I have settled on my team.

Archer Bravo Bancroft Richardson Sutherland (SMarsh Drew)
Carey (Paine)
MMarsh Rashid Tremain Johnson Grant (Christian Cormack)

180k remaining and upgrades will be Cooper Ludeman and Neser should any of my loopholes fail.
Tempted by the idea of Tremain > Turner and loopholing Turner and playing Marsh but I feel that 4 scorchers batters is excessive even if one is loopholed.

Yeah that really surprised me, reckon they wrote done the wrong Richardson haha
Nope because if they wrote down the other Richardson, then Renegades would be better off and Scorchers worse off, which won't go down well with Justin Langer who is the sole national team selector when the BBL is on.

Have some chips with your salt :P
Will you bring them to me?

Close to a certain starter I understand, will replace Sam Whiteman in the team.

Nothing concrete yet

Quote
The Scorchers are confident star opener Shaun Marsh will be cleared to make his return from a quad injury against Hobart, meaning Sam Whiteman is likely to be dropped.

Going to be an interesting week for the Scorchers, the loss of Agar is massive.

Mitch Marsh is available, but going in with Voges as our only spin option doesn't seem likely. But on the other hand I'm not sure they will throw the kid Haydan Morton into the deep end during finals plus it would weaken our batting a fair bit.
My call is MMarsh in for Agar and we'll just find a way to win without spin :)  (or Langer will work his magic and Agar will still play  :P)


As far as fantasy goes some tough choices to make around loop holing and VC picks as these could be the difference as we will all have very similar teams I think

Atm I'm going Christian and Turner as loop hole options and MMarsh as VC

Keeper is a tough position, if you loophole guys like McDermott or Wade and they fail your only option is Ludeman  :(
Wow, I put my team together (without seeing this post) and I settled on looping in Turner and Christian with MMarsh VC. Only trouble I see is what if both fail but Marsh works, how do we loop in? So a the moment I'm rolling with Wade and Carey as keepers, so Carey can be the C and I just back Wade in.

Cooper, Harris, Bancroft, MMarsh [vc], Sutherland (Turner, Harvey)
Carey (Wade)
Bravo, Neser, J.Richardson, Pollard, Cormack (Christian, Crone)

My first draft, guys in red shouldn't play, all are Gades or Strikers so won't be locked out. Even with Carey I have $285k left over so swapping two of them out won't have $$ problems (I have $1,260,400 to spend all up). I'm clearly banking on Scorchers/Gades to get wins haha
I left this, then got home with 3 minutes to tinker. And I tinkered Turner to SMarsh, Christian to Archer, and Wade to Paine ::)

With Marsh failing who are people looking at as captain options? Head? Bravo?

If I trade Laughlin and Siddle to two non-playing players for tomorrow night with I get both Richardson and Christian?

I'd rather take a punt on Nielsen over Ludeman tbh. Personally gonna take the 28.

Oh yeah forgot about him, if he opens it might be worth the risk

So I've got 2 spots left to fill and no idea who to take, Head, Harris, Pollard, Nesser, Tremain, Wildermuth, Cooper pretty much flip a coin haha could even bank Smarshs 50!

I'm banking SMarsh, my 2nd highest score thus far :-[

Trying to upgrade Ingram to Head, will need to trade one of Cooper, White or Bravo down to Pollard?

Had a nice little roller coaster with DC.

Brought him in
Left him on the bench all week
Last minute decision to field him over Tremain
Put the C on him
Took the C off him and put it back on Bravo
Scores 171
Forgot to switch VC to DC and left it on Jofra

Ah well, at least I got the score.  :P

So let's say the Gades fail to run this score down, where would the final be played if Canes v Strikers?

At the Adelaide Oval, the home ground of the higher finishing team of the two finalists.

Was pretty happy with my 770 but then I saw I nearly lost my h2h game and an 881 in my league I didn't think it would be a particularly high scoring round apparently I was wrong.

Head Carey and Short all released for the final captain options will be much more interesting

Short [vc], McDermott, Bailey, Milenko, Paine (Reardon, Doolan)
Wade (Nielsen)
Archer, Christian [c], Rose, Rogers, Meredith (Boyce, Mills)

As you can see, trying not to put the mozza on my Strikers for tomorrow! :P
