Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: elephants on December 01, 2013, 11:35:02 AM
I know a thing or two about cricket but nothing about fantasy cricket :P

First up effort here, thoughts?

Aaron Finch (C)
Shaun Marsh (VC)
Cam White
Alex Doolan

Mitch Marsh
Michael Neser

Chris Hartley

Lasith Malinga
Nathan Coulter-Nile
Clint McKay
Dougy Bollinger

Marcus North, Moises Henriques, Peter Nevill, Trent Copeland.

15k in the bank ;) Basically just picked all my favourites in Doolan, Marsh (x2), Coulter-Nile and Dougy then the a few bargains on the bench and the out and out guns like Finch and Malinga to lead the team!

Oh, and Cameron White :P
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Adamant on December 01, 2013, 12:21:52 PM
Looking good ele, only thing is that Malinga won't be playing the first two matches due to international commitments. Mabye downgrade him to a guy like Murali and upgrade Neser to a star all-rounder such as Christian or Botha? (not sure if you can afford it, might just fall short).

Or you could just go Malinga to pretty much any bowler you want and keep the cash up your sleeve as you'll want to get him in when he returns anyway. 8)

Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: elephants on December 01, 2013, 02:30:53 PM
Haha legend! Yeah only just short, I'll have a tinker. Thanks mate :)

Just a question on teams, how much notice do we get for team sheets and is it like rolling lockout? Cheers boys!
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: BB67th on December 01, 2013, 02:39:15 PM
Not too sure on team sheets, I think clubs normally announce a 12 man squad a day or two before the match and name the XI at the toss.

As for lockouts, it is rolling and you can trade a player as soon as he plays his match, so you can get heaps of points if you use the trading system properly. It's very complex though. I will be doing an article on it for SuperCoach HQ sometime in the next couple of weeks, so it should be a useful read.

Post by: KoopKicka on December 05, 2013, 11:17:37 PM
1. Aaron Finch (Leading BBL|02 fantasy point getter.)
2. Eoin Morgan (English International with a very handy T20 record.)
3. Ravi Bopara (All-rounder classified as a batsman)
4. Alex Hales (Averages almost 40 in T20I and should dominate along with Klinger and Reardon in a weak Strikers lineup.)
5. Luke Wright (Top score of 99* in T20I and is very handy with the ball too, probably the most likely one to be traded out by me before the first game.)
6. Moses Henriques (Underpriced for what he can produce)
7. Peter Nevill (The Renegades sole keeper is a massive steal at that price)
8. Ben Cutting (What needs saying here? A great bowler who will bat at 6-7 for the Heat and clubs them into the stand all night long.)
9. Dirk Nannes (You'd be struggling to find a more economical T20 bowler)
10. Aaron O'Brien (All rounder classified as a bowler, will bat 7-8 for the Renegades and is very handy with both bat and ball.)
11. Nathan Coulter-Nile (Underpriced)

12. Jordan Silk (Ive heard a lot of promising things about this guy.
13. Trent Lawford (Should play most games as a bowling all rounder.)
14. Chirs Hartley (Arguable the best gloveman in Aus, will bat at 9 for the Heat however.)
15. Ashton Turner (Heard that he has a chance to cement a regular place and for 32k Im willing to take a punt)

Cash left: 900

4 England players :o

Thoughts much appreciated. :)

There is no way that Hartley will bat at 9. He opened in the Big Bash last year and opened in the Ryobi Cup this year. While he probably won't be at the top of the order any more, the lowest I think he would bat is 6.

1. Aaron Finch - Loves this form. Will go nuts.
2. Shaun Marsh - Similar to Finchy.
3. Cam White - We all know how dangerous he can be.
4. Tommy Cooper - Has the ability to put in a good score late the innings, nice price.
5. Shoaib Malik - Gun all-rounder. Game time a plenty surely.
6. Glenn Maxwell - No explanations needed.
7. Chris Hartley - Cheap, gun, lock.
8. Lasith Malinga - You're asking for trouble not having him.
9. Ben Laughlin - Bowls well, handy with the bat.
10. Gurinder Sandhu - Has being doing well for NSW, should do well.
11. Adam Zampa - This guy is seriously good, worry of Botha bowling more than him though.

12. Jordan Silk - Future Aussie batsman.
13. Hilton Cartwright - I like this guy, could be serviceable.
14. Phil Nevill - Love this lad, Gades main man (doubt Buttler will keep).
15. Scott Boland - #vicsdoitbetter Perfect replacement for Malinga when he doesn't play.

Off Course Nige but seriously though why would you not have Cutting and Vetorri as they take wickets in this form and also wield the willow.

Forest always goes well in this comp, Hartley is the best gloveman in Oz and has opened in this bash before and scored reasonably. Hopes was last choice as trying to fit in Salary Cap would have been someone else if I could afford.

Yeah, he has asked for a bit of SuperCoach advice from SuperCoach HQ a few times and we asked him if he would be up for an interview, replied back in the middle of a Shield game that he would be happy to answer questions later! Sent him over a few questions and he replied quickly. Seems like a great guy.

Finch seems to be in a mini slump atm. Hope its just the red ball and he comes good as he is Bloody expensive, Bloody Good but $$$$$$$$$$$$$ :-\

A must have for round 3 though

I was playing with dropping him tonight for Hughes but I just couldn't bring myself to do it haha :P
haha me too.
Hughes should go alright on the adelaide pitch but i just dont see him as a t20 player for some reason. In form though.
I was thinking one of the perth openers, Marsh or Smith but you dont want Finch to fire and not have him

Obviously we are all opposed to one another in the group but overall we should try help each other out to get the best possible rank!

Just wondering about everyones thoughts on pitches.

The Gabba and WACA are pretty well known to have some serious bounce so early its good for the bowlers but if batsmen cange in there are serious runs up for grabs.

Adelaide we know is a very flat track so plenty in it for batsmen like Hughes and Klinger.

Bellerieve is often covered in some grass so the swing bowlers will love it. Guys like Laughlin would be worth a punt.

Apparently Etihad turns a lot so look at Murali as a genuine front line bowler.

Can anyone add to this? Cheers lads!

Haha Laughlin is not really a swing bowler. If you watched him in the Ryobi Cup he is more of an off spinner. His stock ball in the shorter forms is an off cutter which gets bowled a lot. Still, a good choice though.

Yeah, thats the way i see it except the pitches seem favored towards the batsmen in t20 so could have less venom in them.
Sixes seem a bit depleted so i thinkiing someone like abbot could be good for the first couple of rounds as he should get a bat aswell

Yeah, that's fair enough he can get a bit of reverse swing. Either way though, he is definitely a very unorthodox bowler, but can be great fun to watch!

Pretty much you get 2 trades to use each round,  but you can use them St any stage during the round on nay player, as long as they are not currently in a match.

So, for example, I can have Finch in my team tonight, and the  in the morning I can trade him out for a Sixes player who is yet to play this round, and I will get points for both of them. So it's quite a complex system to manipulate properly and get maximum points.

This should help...

From the Gades' FB page.

Your Melbourne Renegades squad V Stars; Aaron Finch (C), Fawad Ahmed, Jos Buttler, Tom Cooper, Alex Doolan, Jake Haberfield, Jayde Herrick, Muthiah Muralidaran, Peter Nevill, Aaron O'Brien, Nathan Rimmington, Ben Rohrer, Will Sheridan. Get on red!

That's 13 guys, two will obviously miss out.

Finch
Doolan
Buttler
Rohrer
Nevill
Cooper
Herrick
Murali
Rimmington
O'Brien
Sheridan

That's my guess, Haberfield and Fawad to miss I'd say. They might play Fawad over Obi though, but Obi's an allrounder though.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Nige on December 19, 2013, 05:24:49 PM

Cameron White (c), Jackson Bird, Peter Handscomb, John Hastings, Brad Hodge, David Hussey, Alex Keath, Glenn Maxwell, Clint McKay, Clive Rose, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade and Luke Wright!

I'd expect Keath and Stoinis to miss out, meaning the team will look something like...

Wright
White
Hodge
Hussey
Maxwell
Wade
Handscomb
Bird
Hastings
McKay
Rose

Faulkner's injured at the moment, so don't worry too much about him.

Maxi and Wrighty can play in the same team easily.

Wrighty usually opens for us and is a seamer.

Maxi excels in this form of the game and just has the knack of making his presence felt with both bat and ball.

If you were to pick one, go Maxi (no bias) and he's a chance to both bat and bowl. However, if he gets called up for the Aussies' ODI team, jump on somebody else like Hafeez from the Gades.

Half the teams have a bye and then play twice in another round, the rest just play one game a round. It mentions in the rules on the site somewhere which teams have which and when they play.

If your player is out for that round they won't score, and if they play twice in the round they score points for both matches and are locked in after the first game.

Maxy's one of those guys that can come in whenever you want him to... like, he'd probably be about 6th, but since Bob Quiney is injured and he would normally open with Wright, I'm not sure who the Stars will choose to open instead... Maxy could, but that would be unlikely.

I really like Luke Wright, don't get me wrong... but I reckon purely because Maxy could get a bowl that he'd be the better choice.

McDermott, Coulter-Nile, Richardson, Beer, (Rose).

Pomersbach is in ridiculous form and I'm thinking he will go bang first game. McDermott although can go for runs picks up a lot of wickets. Beer keeps it tight not sure if he plays over agar though or if they play 2 spinners. Rose will get games he is the only specialist spinner for the stars.

You'd think that Rose will play every game pretty much, he's the only specialist spinner and so will play unless they decide to go with pace and use maxwell and white, maybe ahmed has more competition? Not sure...

Can anyone confirm/deny the trading rule?

Tempted to have Finch in my team tonight, let him play, then trade him to Marsh. Will I get both their points??

nah, its like rolling lockout. Once someone has played they are locked into you team until the next lockout, which they have called trade periods.

The Trade Periods are scheduled as follows:
Trade Period 1 - from Monday, December 23
Trade Period 2 - from Monday, December 30
Trade Period 3 - from Thursday, January 2
Trade Period 4 - from Monday, January 6
Trade Period 5 - from Saturday, January 11
Trade Period 6 - from Thursday, January 16
Trade Period 7 - from Wednesday, January 22
SEMI FINALS:
Trade Period 8 - from Tuesday, January 28 (unlimited trades)
FINAL:
Trade Period 9 - from Thursday, February 6 (unlimited trades)

ahmed's last game figures vs wa were 9/120 off 32 overs - so he is pretty decent form!

264/4 (Finch (57), White (65), Murali (40)and Bird (107)).  Loved my late trade of Bollinger to Bird,  :D :D

Finch as VC 57 probably not enough to use VC Loophole.  Mike Hussey to fire as Captain hopefully.

290/6 with C from Doolan (14), Nevill (45), Herrick (12), Finch (c - 104), Maxi (50) and White (65).

Won't be around for the start of tonight's game but only have one player.

That would be Gurinder Sandhu. He's one of the three PODs (I think) I have, along with Shoaib Malik and Nathan Hauritz.

Hoping they all play and fire...

Here is the Sixers 12 man squad:

Michael Lumb
Nic Maddinson
Steve Smith (c)
Marcus North
Ravi Bopara
Moises Henriques
Jordan Silk
Daniel Smith
Stephen O'Keefe
Brett Lee
Josh Hazlewood
Mark Cosgrove

And the Thunder squad of 13:

Mike Hussey (c)
Ryan Carters
Blake Dean
Luke Feldman
Jason Floros
Kurtis Patterson
Usman Khawaja
Eoin Morgan
Dirk Nannes
Gurinder Sandhu
Carl Sandri
David Warner
Chris Woakes

Any idea who will be cut from these? No Copeland for the Sixers though so will need to make a change on my bench.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03

Cosgrove probably misses out for the Sixers and Sandri and Dean for the Thunder.

I brought in Floros for Copeland on my bench.

Yeah they were my thoughts and I literally did the exact same trade about 10 minutes ago haha.

Switching between Birt, Bopara and Hussey atm. I have backed in Birt in the leadup and ended up picking him over Finch so I feel I should keep him but Huss is a jet and could open(?) or at least bat up the order and Bopara is essentially an all-rounder classed as a batsmen so yeah :P

Also, I still have a loophole up my sleeve...
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Ringo on December 21, 2013, 12:52:45 PM
Just did Copeland to Voros as well

Hussey is my Captain so hope he scores more than 57 Finch was my VC and not using the loophole.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: BB67th on December 21, 2013, 01:01:52 PM
Hussey would be a 90% chance to open, and if he doesn't he will be somewhere in the top 4. I expect big things from him this tournament.

Damn, why wouldn't they play Hartley? Looks like I will replace him with Kieswetter then. At least that makes me a few more dollars.
Is Kieswetter only with them for a few rounds? If so, they're probably just making use of their international signing while they have him.
No, he's available for the entire tournament.
:o Then I'm not sure.  ???

Heres my team what do you think ?

Finch,White,Hughes,Hussey (Cooper)
Hopes,Wright (Henriques)
Keiswetter (Neville)
Murali,NCN,Vettori,Floros (Herrick)

What about Vettori is he a decent shout a bit unsure on him .Any reason to go Hales instead of Hughes to give some cash
If Henriques kills it i can go Hopes - Hafeez
If Turner gets named which he should i could go Vettori - Turner giving me some more cash
Got $8,700 in the bank

Thanks

Heard an interview with Stewie Law saying that he has gone with Kiewsetter to start with because of his explosive batting opening, Not really worried as I will just make Hartley reserve keeper as one of them will play at all times. Law also said Hartley will get his chances as well later in the tournament so it sounds as though Hartley will be used on the slower tracks and Kiewsetter on the quicker tracks.

I didn't realize O'Keeffe would bat so low. Might have to trade him to Luke Wright next game.

Finch 52
Henriques 108
Maddinson 81
Nannes 12 ( ::) )

makes it 483/7
with Hales (c), Vettori, Cutting and Kieswetter to come with Putland on the bench in case he goes spastic.

Happy with Cosgrove as i swapped hughes/hussey for Warner/Cosgrove.Will get Lawford in so Henriques score counts.Will just trust Keiswetter i think.Happy with Nannes still got it just a bit unlucky.Think im doing so/so a bit of luck involved

Sorry if this has been asked already...but can you get more than 1 auto emergency? Say if I have 2 players in my starting XI out, do both players get an auto emergency score?
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Curly on December 21, 2013, 09:56:27 PM
Players who do not play in any given round and score 0 on your starting 11, will automatically be replaced by the player on your bench in their matching position only. Therefore, you'll have up to one "automatic emergency" for each position available. Note that players who actually take part in a match and receive a score of 0 or a negative score will not be replaced.

According to the Big Bash Fantasy Live Scores, those who did not bowl for the Hurricanes did not count as playing a match. Every Striker did, and the 5 Hobart bowlers did, but not the rest of the Hobart players.

I will be pissed off if that is the case. If the Strikers players who didn't bat get a score of 0, why do the Hurricanes who didn't bowl get off with playing a game in the stats?

I see NCN = Cutting. Bowlers who are more than handy with the bat when needed.

591. Not the best start but that is with an on field 0 from Laughlin. If only I could have had Sandri's 41 replace him.

I think my two trades this week will be SOK to Wright and Warner to maybe Lynn or Hales.

Can you captain a player that plays 2 games in one round?

For example if I captain Finch in Rd 3 and he scores 40 and 60 do I effectively get [2x(60+40)] = 200 from him as Captain?
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Curly on December 23, 2013, 10:27:23 AM
Yeah you do ! Finch is the obvious captain but Hafeez might be a better option ! Will open the batting and bowl a few over.Or captain Finch but get Hafeez in.
I have Finch,Cooper,Murali,Herrick and Neville should be sweet

scored 710 with a donut from Travis Birt. :) Deciding to keep Birt over Klinger to loophole Khawaja lost me 50 points or so, however I did upgrade Vettori to Cutting so that made up for it. :)

Hopefully Voges and Usman are ok, otherwise I'll only have 2 fit batsmen!

Yeah its tough i started off with 5 renegades might even be 6. Started off with 2 sixers (Henriques (C) and 2 scorchers (Marsh (C) so should have 3 for round 3/4.Id say 3 each would would put you in a good spot more then most but 2 would be ok.All about the captain choice

635. Pretty good I guess.

Any prizes for top weekly scorer and overall? Also Renegades play twice this week right? Does that mean one team isn't playing as well?
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: PowerBug on December 23, 2013, 11:00:12 AM
I think there should be a minor adjustment to the scoring for next season. At the moment you gat 12 points per maiden over, I think that can be changed slightly, because maiden overs are so unlikely, to 2 points per dot ball bowled. The bowlers stats on Ten have the dot balls listed in the column that maidens usually are, and in this game I think that is a better option. :)

All 8 teams are still playing this round.

Round 3 the Renegades play twice and the Sixers have a bye.

There is a reverse trades button specky but not sure as to whether you can not reverse after 1st lock out.

For me Watson will now become Wright. (Traded Watson in to get Henriques 108) Will sort out second trade later when I know whether North is playing this week. Was named and a late withdrawal and cost me a donut.

North was crook apparently when he woke up which meant Cosgrove got a spot. I would think Cossy or Silk will make way for North next game.

Alright, considering bringing in Malinga now and making sure I can cover him on my bench. If Floros is named, I can do Birt to Finch, if not I must trade Floros to someone who is defs playing.

Gotta risk it for the biscuit.

Alternatively, I could get in Cutting and do Birt to Finch. Much safer but means I need to spend a trade next week on turning Dougy/McKay/Dirk to Malinga AS WELL AS sorting out Renegades and Sixers players and their bye.

First option is much bigger risk but seemingly bigger reward. Need Finch to fail tonight if I go that option...

Sorry tbag, but had to say it. ;)



I'm copping a donut with this though. :( Voges, Ussie and now NCN all out, and with Mendis and Head being my benchies, It'll be one zero after I make my trades.

Nah the whole BB can get flowered

This whole "11 will be announced right before the game" For starters, flower that!!

No extra trades if your player is picked in a Test squad, flower that, we all know you need a Test player in the gap before Boxing day or you fall behind (Unless you pick Bailey >:( ) anyway, that's one trade! Not to mention the two players I have that got injured, two more trades

Where's the trade then to replace a Test selected player? Don't just blame luck, blame the assholes that make the comp!

Every fantasy comp MUST be fair, but, anyone who has players in rained out games gets flowered over by sausage!!

Not to mention any player picked 12th man in a Test team

Yeah flower of BBL! flower you!! Just not worth any effort at all as all you do is get sausage up your bum!

Getting rid of Hopes after 1 bad game? I'm considering it too, but can probably use my trades better elsewhere. Being away and not able to get final teams in time (flower you cricinfo etc.) really flowered my team over last week and now my team is flowering destroyed.

best I can do is win 1 week or something...

But yeah tempted to chuck Hopes in the bin.
White Goodman captain only bringing himself on at the death.

Gades play twice next week, so I think NCN -> Rimmo might be the way to go.

Phil Hughes

Now if Hales can miraculously rack up some points in the field (catches/runouts/whatever) and get himself to 30odd I'll be happier.

Lets see it happen.

Malinga and Faulkner in!

I suspect Stoinis is a certain out, the other I can't pick.

If I was to guess, probably Johnno Hastings because we'll have too many pace bowlers and Cliffy (Rose) is our only full time spin bowler.

Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Nige on December 28, 2013, 12:52:42 PM
This is brilliant... or should be.

Malinga in the squad and therefore should almost certainly be selected. I reckon Rose will play, simply because I don't think the Stars will rely on solely Maxi as a spinning option.

If Cliffy and Malinga both play, I'll get Rose's score for NCN!  ;D

Wow that's a nice squad, What's the go with Quiney? Is he coming in soon?

Bob's still injured I think. Even then if he wasn't, as much as I love him, I don't even know who we'd take out for him.  :o

Quiney
Wright
White
Hodge
Hussey
Wade
Maxwell
Faulkner
McKay
Bird
Malinga

Faulkner more than capable to be our 4th bowler and one or two of Wright, White, Huss and Maxwell to bowl the spare 4, Bird or McKay could come out for Rose if they think it will suit spin more

Maxi has a casual 144 fantasy points and could still catch another few or pick up another runout or something.

Single-handedly making my score look somewhat respectable.

Malinga getting a wicket or something would be nice though...  ::)

If Bear could bowl himself or get Malinga on to take a few wickets, that'd be great.

Need to get off the bottom of the FF league I'm in, even if I'm not gonna win my league game. Since I'm playing our league's top scorer (idk who it is) for the round, I'm gonna lose that.

What are everyone's trades for today?

I've gone McKay --> Sandri and Lawford --> M. Marsh.

Got 4 Renegades' players for their double gameweek (Finch, Rimmington, Murali, Nevill).







Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03

Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Nige on December 30, 2013, 12:10:23 PM
Decided to go:

Pomers -> Tilly (Dilshan) because he'll likely open.

Also got Rimmo instead of Sandri because he's been killing it and Gades have the double GW. 
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Adamant on December 30, 2013, 12:15:04 PM
Thinking Maxwell over Marsh now since he is 12k cheaper, although Marsh has the double GW in two weeks so I'll probably want him then anyway...
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Sweetness on December 30, 2013, 01:07:46 PM
My trades at the minute:

1) Lawford to Henriques in prep for 6ers double next week
2) Herrick to either Sandri or will get in Fekete from the Gades if he is named tonight

If Fekete comes in I will have 5 Gades for their double this week.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Ringo on December 30, 2013, 01:15:24 PM
My trrades Hopes to Mitch Marsh - Forced on me with Hopes out and also Henriques with bye.

Silk to Alex Doolan  Also have North so had to trade a batsmen.

So stuck with Floros as bowling emergency because of Hopes.

Woakes is done with the Thunder. Dilshan coming in as their second international.

NCN was released from his national team duties and should be available.

Pretty sure Mendis is coming in this week as well.

My bad, only Dougie was released. Faulks and NCN still in the squad, with Doolan added. My have to hang on to Ritz and trade out NCN for Rimmo instead. Not sure whether I trust Silk enough, so I'll have to keep the faith in Pomers too and bring in Dilshan for Doolan.

Grappling with whether or not trading Lawford is a good idea. I easily have the funds to make something work but if I do I lose my VC loophole :-\
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Windigo on December 30, 2013, 03:27:14 PM
Lawford->The Duke.

Dunno about the other yet.



I have Rose for the VC loophole.

Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: elephants on December 30, 2013, 03:32:41 PM
Have just done:

McKay -> Rimmo (Still showerty at him for leaving the Scorchers)
Lawford -> MMarsh

Gives me three Gades which I think is enough (Finch (C), Rimmo, Nevill).

EDIT: Just noticed I fully stole your trades Ada, sorry :P

This effectively means I keep Bollinger over McKay. I rate McKay higher in this format but I can't having him bowl 1-2 overs a match!

Also does Nevill get a spot on the field over Kieswetter?

Nev has the double GW, I'd stick with him.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: elephants on December 30, 2013, 04:48:30 PM
Rotating my wk has worked well so far so yep, will be starting Nevvy. Should get a couple of catches and at least one solid innings in this week.

I am going to take the 'risk' and make North my captain with Finch VC. One of two things will happen.

1) North is locked out from the start, White will come on and replace him in my batting lineup and Finch will be my Captain.
2) North is locked out at the end, White will come on and replace him in my batting lineup and I will be able to look at how Finch goes first up and make a decision on my C thereafter :)

Nothing to lose, right?
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Windigo on December 30, 2013, 05:08:42 PM
I'd just go Finch. He can very easily get a 30 & 10-20 nek game + throw in a catch or 2.

With double games I'd just play it safe....
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Master Q on December 30, 2013, 05:09:49 PM
Any notable Renegades batsmen to trade in besides Finch (Doolan is out yeah?)

I have a spare trade, Hopes -> M.Marsh is my first one

I think I'll go Finch VC and if he does well bring on Silk.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: PowerBug on December 30, 2013, 05:10:35 PM
That's right. Also, should Finch fail twice, you can then make Luke Wright your captain. :)

Birt, Finch x2, Doolan, Katich (Bopara)
Woakes, Wright (Hastings)
Kieswetter (Hartley)
Rimmington x2 (vc), Sheridan x2, Mendis (c), Cutting (McKay)

Doolan is playing tonight but will likely miss the next match as it is 2 days before the 5th test. I have three others which play twice, Sheridan does ok, bats at 7, and you don't lose points for bowling sh!te, so when he goes 2/50 I'll get 40 points from him. :P Got the C on Mendis as I get to see Rimmington twice before choosing my captain, if he does well (liekly), then I'll just move the C to Woakes who's done. :)

Sounds easy, now watch everyone fail :P
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Nige on December 30, 2013, 05:11:19 PM

Post by: PowerBug on December 30, 2013, 05:14:04 PM
According to Renegades fb page, Doolan is playing tonight vs the Heat. But it'll likely be his only game, so no point trading him in imo, Tom Cooper better, but also those with him no need to trade out. :)
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Master Q on December 30, 2013, 05:15:46 PM

Gotta go Nevill, double game means twice the chance to score good!

Voges still out so probably Windy yeah.

Looking at his stats, his actually a pretty good batter. Bowling figures aren't great though. Just gotta fill in for Henriques this week.  :-\

So is Tom Cooper worth it?

His in ripper form, better option than Silk from the start IMO...

Hahaha. Good to see someone else supporting my trades.

I'm just gonna lock in Finch with the C. Surely he'll pump out a big score in one of the two games.

Squad now looks like this.

A. Finch x2 (C), A. Hales, D. Hussey, T. Birt (N. Maddinson)
L. Wright, M. Marsh (M. Henriques)
P. Nevill x2 (C. Kieswetter)
M. Muralidaran x2, N. Rimmington x2 (VC), D. Vettori, N. Coulter-Nile (C. Sandri)

Hm, could go either way. Finch could easily compensate for the donut with his double GW but then his score could also = Katich and NCN if he doesn't do too well.

Would go Finchy.

Finch x2 (VC), Cooper x2, Hales, White (Maddinson BYE)
Wright, M.Marsh (Lawford
Kieswetter (Nevill x2)
Cutting, Vettori, O'Brien x2, Bird (Hazlewood BYE)

gonna punt on Kieswetter as he opens whereas Nevill bats 6, also chose Hazlewood for next week over Rimmington and benching Bird. Made the right choices?

Keiswetter(Neville)

Maxi's their main source of spin bowling champ.

Yea quit calling me champ!

With there quick attack they won't be relying on much spin. Only reason he got 4 overs last night was they were resting Malinga.
But you are a champ! :o 8)

Can't see them totally neglecting a few overs of spin, and after his efforts last night, surely they'd bowl him every now and then.

That said, Mitch Marsh is still a very good option. Can't go wrong either way.

Why would you have Finch but not make him captain? You realise he was like top scoring player last season and gets TWO attempts this week?

My team is mostly going great:

Nevill - unlucky he didn't get to bat
Aobi - gun, wicket and looking at ER bonus
Doolan - I'll take 13, he can score in the next match
Murali - looking at a 20 point ER bonus
Finch(C) - thanks.

I had a bad feeling that having him captain for a third week wouldn't do me any good.

Rimmo's been in good form and I had hoped he'd rip through the Heat batsmen.

But yeah, regret has sunk in...

Oh FARQ

I misread the bye thingo. Damn it. I should have been DESTROYING.  :( I misread the byes thought it was them next week so didn't trade Rimmo in. Was tossing up just getting extra points from his DGW and risking a doughey the following week as I will have 4 Sixers for their DGW

#rookieerror

Obi was on track for the 20 bonus point ER, a six smashed him down to only 12 bonus

Now Murali's worst ball ever could ruin his great ER.

A Rimmo catch, I'll take it.  ;D

Either get him into the top 5 or play him at 6-8 in the Test team :P

Ah and ...

How would Nev get credited? It was a direct hit mate. At least I thought it was a direct hit? Stumps seemed to light up before in Nev's gloves and Ponting said direct hit

Unless you're talking about Ritz, as that was 100% Nev, was only one to touch the ball...

Try like 3 pages ago PB.

There's still a chance Doolan will play, it depends what hppens with test teams. I hope he does play. I didn't trade Doolan in PB, had him since round 1.

My team has been flowered cause of family christmas shower just before round 1 lockout/teams so had Doolan since round 1. 

Also had work at 4:30 tonight so even if I wanted to (I wouldn't have) trade him out, I couldn't ahve with that knowledge.

Was going to start DV but couldn't find info on wether he was actually going to play R1 so last minute swap for NCN :-[ ..   ::)

Ridded of Coots for Rimmo who paid off nicely! VCd him also for 64 with a (thanks to the stupid flowering bye system) plays again, thinking of looping

But the real highlight for me (Other than watching Cutting's magic) was the return of Patto, not the greatest ODI bowler (yet) but give him a couple of games so he's ready for the Seth Efricins ;D

Not too much Havoc on the Finch front Ringo, most should trade him out by then as that's when (off top of my head) roughly when Renegades' bye begins so because he's worth so much should be traded out to best bat available that round anyway.

Yeah that's my point though. Most good coaches would be trading Finch out imo

You don't really want the most expensive player sitting on the bench in the Gades' bye week (imo) when you can select the best scoring bat in the entire competition to replace him.

flowerin spewin. was gonna watch the game but it was pouring down and didn't think there would be play.. so I watched Kill Bill 1&2 instead. flower... they better replay it. Jesse Ryder scored his hundred off 46 balls aswell

Nope, you're officially 'that guy'.  :P

Twas in Queenstown, New Zealand.

Dunno how big it is, but it seats 19k, so it's not overly big.

Still, it's a fair effort. A 17 year old record has been broken.  :o

This comp is so flowered it's borderline crazy

Price changes should be two weeks, not three

The way it is, everyone would be forced to start with Finch, if they were all smart enough to look at the draw (Which is crap seeing it's a silly slap and giggle comp) and found out that Finch plays twice in week three (the week after the prices should have changed, which of course they didn't)

Seriously, what's with the bye and double rounds? ??? stupid frog heads

Hope so JB. Specially hope he's available for his double game in rnd 5 before ODI duties.

I'm just trying to get the feel for strategy, where possible are people loading up on the teams double week if a doughnut can be avoided by doing so?

This weeks trades: Laughlin > Hazelwood & Wright > Henriques

I ditched Laughlin cos he has bye & got rid of Wright just to get Henriques for double week. Cash left $54,500

Not sure if im shooting myself in the foot here with wright? Any help?

Or could get Hazlewood this week and get NCN next week

Post by: Nige on January 02, 2014, 11:14:46 AM
Canes have the bye and I only have Shoaib Malik. I wanna keep him, but he hasn't done overly great so far.

Got Maxi and Duke anyway, so can probs bench Sho for his bye before trading Maxi once he goes off for ODI duties.

Need a better keeper than Nev so I reckon Kieswetter's the man.

Definitely trading one of Hauritz/Malinga, but reckon if I get rid of Malinga I'll regret it.  :-\

Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: elephants on January 02, 2014, 12:35:23 PM
Yeah JB trade Murali IMO.

Got a selection dilemma in my AR spots. Henriques, Marsh and Wright is a bit too strong and with Henriques with the double game this week and Marsh with the double next week... I feel like sliding out Wright to free up funds is the way to go. Hasn't been particularly damaging since round 1 and the Stars have no shortage of bowling options. I might slide out Wright until the ODI's I think.

At this stage I am looking at:

Wright -> Tim Armstrong
Jason Floros -> Hazlewood

This leaves me with 33k and 3 Sixers. Next week I can ride Rimmo's price rise one more time this week then go him -> NCN for his double and have roughly 40k to spend on another upgrade (might even be Henriques to Wright depending how Moises goes this double.)

I dunno :P
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Master Q on January 02, 2014, 12:37:03 PM
Wanted to downgrade Wright so Hastings could come on the field but there aren't really any cheap ARs who play...

So Wright --> Henriques is locked in... I then have money to do anything I want.

Should I go Cooper -> Klinger or a 6er batsmen? Or Sandhu to Hazlewood and then play Silk ahead of Cooper?

Does Finch leave in round 6 with the other ODI lads? Round 6 is going to be brutal with the Strikers and Scorchers having byes + ODI blokes leaving as well. My batsmen will be decimated with Marsh, Hales and Finch all set to miss that week.

Bird to Rimmington
Vettori to Hazelwood

and who to play on field Wright or Mitch Marsh tempted to roll the dice and give Wright another go.

For information team as it stands

Finch M Hussey C Lynn, White  (M North)
Henriques (c) Wright/Marsh
Kiewsetter (Hartley)
Rimmington, Cutting, Murali, Hazelwood. (Floros)

Or should I stick with Vettori and upgrade White or Lynn

The time for Rimmo would have been last week for his double, wouldn't get him in seeing he has the bye nek week....

Stick with Vettori, a bowler that bats is invaluable.

Hurricaines share there double with thunder I believe, should be able to find a few choices between them. Often, a gun on a single will out score or match an average player on a double.


This is such a game of inches due to the small quads and limited games. my chances are blown thanks to the first no result game in hobart and also Had the ability to bring in finch or rimmington, chose rimmo. Egg on face!

Perth play on the 7th and 10th, first ODI is on the 12th in Melbourne, the game on the 10th is in Sydney. I'm hoping he can play both.

Edit, just did my trades, have a whopping 95k left over. ;D

Benched White to get North's double score and leaving Hodge on field and had Rimmington on field with Sandu on bench.

This will hurt my ranking
;) That is extremely unfortunate! :(

I want to get Sandhu, very economical bowler, might go McKay to him when I get the chance.

Turns out it didn't hurt, went up from 179 to 127  ;D even with 4 players combining for 11 points

Traded Finch to White and Maddison to Katich


Is any one aware of ijury status of Katich (think I read somewhere where he batted with a broken finger). 

may have to reconsider if VetTori does not play either as Muralli is my emergency and Floros as well,

may slide down this week from my current overall position of 378

685 from the other 7. Henriques captain, finch, hazlewood and bird were my saviours haha

If I'd had White and Sandhu instead of hodge and Rimmington on I'd be 21st overall  :P

Dropped to 266th overall this week thanks to Maddinson, D. Hussey and Rimmington.

Thinking Finch to S. Marsh and Rimmington/Murali to Nannes/Laughlin in prep for their doubles next week (think I've got enough Scorchers). Then will trade Marsh next week before his ODI.

Talk about bad luck. But all i needed from last nights game to win my match was 10 points from Hales Klinger and Maddinson. Hales gets 8 Klinger 1. Hmm not too bad. All i need is Maddinson to make 1. The douche makes a duck and gets neg 20. So now i need Klinger and Hales to take 2 catches between them. What happens.. Klinger drops 2. Fuarkkk. Where is the justice haha

Got to get rid of one of my Gades bowlers

so looks like Obi/Murali > Hogg or NCN is my only option

Then I want to trade in Marsh but no cash unless I get rid of Maxwell, which seems like a silly idea.


Will NCN definitely play BOTH games or just 1? Makes me think maybe I should pick Hogg
Is Obi > Hogg/NCN and Finch > Marsh really the rest I can do?  :-\

Such a hard week for trades, not really knowing about the futures of NCN, marsh and maxwell with the Aussie team. Plus, adl and scorchers have the bye next week so trying not too load up on scorchers is difficult

Keiswetter (Neville)
Murali,Nannes,Alfonso,Bird (Fekete)

Is Mitch Marsh and Alfonso ok this week ?
Could trade Finch - Katich and Fekete - Hogg or

Finch - M Hussey
Fekete - Bollinger

Finch isn't playing again
NCN is playing tomorrow, still unsure on the match on the 10th.
Scorchers have the bye next round, so don't overload on them.
Hurricanes have a double next week and have already had their bye. Players like Birt, Dunk, Bollinger the go here.
Strikers have a bye with the Scorchers (Hales, Klinger)
Thunder have a double with the Hurricanes but a bye the week after. (Mike Hussey, Sandhu)

Post by: BB67th on January 06, 2014, 03:48:19 PM
Might as well trade Finch this week. Renegades have the bye this week and then Finch will be on international duties with the ODIs. That being said he might actually be available for selection for some Big Bash games seeing as the Renegades next match is on the 15th which is right in between two ODIs on the 12th and 17th. Do people think he is likely to play in that Big Bash game?
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Master Q on January 06, 2014, 04:12:57 PM
I've changed my trades.

Finch -> Hussey (Gets a double next week)
Rose -> Hogg (Hogg is captain this week, may put Cutting captain though. Means I can play Rimmington if I want next week, have a 5 premo bowling line-up)

And 80k left  8)

Having two hurts to much next week with Hobart not playing as well. Also they don't always pay off.

I'm risking it on M.Hussey this week instead of someone like Marsh. Got a double next week and has a late bye, hopefully it'll pay off.

I think having 3 Scorchers is not a problem this week imo

You have 2 trades to trade them out and you still have 4 bench spots

So really you can have 5 on field this week

Trade 2 out and still have 3 on your bench. provided you have a playing 15.

Lucky I only have 1 striker and will have 3 scorchers post trade.

I think Ive run myself into a spot of bother

Ok, this is what I'm aiming for over the next two weeks. Still pissed about my North to Maddinson trade after round 1, such a nothing trade didn't need to do it.

This week: Finch --> M. Hussey & Murali --> Hogg.

M. Hussey, A. Hales, D. Hussey, T. Birt (N. Maddinson)
M. Marsh x2, M. Henriques (T. Armstrong x2)
C. Kieswetter (P. Nevill)
D. Vettori, B. Hogg x2, N. Coulter-Nile, J. Hazlewood (N. Rimmington)



Then next week I can go NCN --> Nannes/Laughlin and Armstrong --> umm, Shoab Malik or Chris Woakes, I guess (anybody rate them as options?) which should hopefully leave me looking like this (remembering Strikers & Scorchers have the bye and Hurricanes & Scorchers play twice).

M. Hussey x2, D. Hussey, T. Birt x2, N. Maddinson (A. Hales)
S. Malik/C. Woakes x2, M. Henriques (M. Marsh)
C. Kieswetter (P. Nevill)
D. Vettori, N. Rimmington, D. Nannes/B. Laughlin x2, J. Hazlewood (B. Hogg)

Not thrilled about it, but should be solid enough.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: PowerBug on January 07, 2014, 08:19:12 AM

Post by: Nige on January 07, 2014, 11:49:43 AM
So yeah, not too sure what to do this week... Current team is:

Finch, White, Dilshan, Pomers (Silk)
Maxwell, Hastings (Malik)
Kieswetter (Hartley)
Rimmington, Sandhu, Hazlewood, Hauritz (Rose)

Finch going on ODI duties plus has the bye this week means I may have to trade him. Alternatively, bench him for Silk and trade out Finchy next week (although trading him down to somebody will give me cash).

The plan is to trade Maxi next week once he goes on ODI duties, just a matter of who to bring in.

My bowlers are kinda stuffed atm, thinking of trading Ritz (because he's absolutely useless) and maybe Rose.

Finch is finished, at least until the finals, so you may as well get rid of him because then you can bring in anyone this week, else you risk a 0 with Bopara who may also not play because of the ODI's. And you will be copping a 0 unless you trade Murali or O'Brien.

So I'd be looking to cover that. I'm not telling you who to cover them with, that's half the battle and I don't want to give away my plans as I'm in the top 10 at this stage, but that's what you need to do.

Just to let you know that Murali will not be locked till final game. You just need to be careful to ensure you have a bowler for him to sub 2. You could say have a known bowler as sub with Murali on the field and then use the c on him if required.  I have done that now twice vc'd a player playing 2 games and then deciding whether to take it after the first game and pit my C on the non playing player. 
This week for example I will have the VC on Katich or Mitch Marsh still deciding and if they go 50+ in the first game I will bring Hartley onto the field for Kiewsetter and make him captain.  If they do not score well then team stays with Hussey or White as captain.

BREAKING NEWS: Alfonso Thomas has been withdrawn from the Scorchers 13-man squad due to a back injury sustained in training yesterday. He has been replaced in the extended team by Hilton Cartwright.

Thomas will be assessed by medical staff over the next 24-48hrs ahead of the squad announcement for Friday's clash with Sydney Sixers at the SCG.

Ended up trading Clive Rose to Ashton Turner and Nathan Hauritz to Brett Lee.

Figured that Binga would be a decent option considering he pretty much bowls his overs and snags a few wickets, even if he isn't economical at times.

Turner can bowl but is being used as a batsman.

Yeah I could have got Marsh in probably. But would/will be a waste if he goes on ODI duties (will he? or will he BBL?)

He was one of the most economical death bowlers in the league over the past two seasons and yes, he's been scratchy this season but was great in setting up the win vs the Renegades. Once we get Cummins back our attack is the best in the league.

Of course we are a batsmen short, flowering Dwayne Smith pulled out on us last minute ::) If we make finals we have the bowling power to compensate for a perceived batting weakness.

Just realised I am playing you in one of the Leagues so take the advice how you would.

Basically it comes down to how many you think Katich will score against Sixers.  Looked good last night until run out by his partner.  Will open the innings again.  So if he was to score say 50 for 84 would any of the other options score 84 as an example.

Only you can make the decision but remember Hussey is playing Heat tonight so if you think he is an alternate to change before match. As a Heat supporter I am nervous about this one as I think if Hussey fires Thunder will get their first win.  Been close.

Also White opens for the Stars but does not bowl unfortunately but is also capable of scoring 80+.

Your decision.

I hate rolling lockout when I'm working because if I'm working (4/7 days/week) it's when the big bash games start. So I can't use rolling lockout properly

Like if I wasn't working I would've saved my Finch trade for tonight's game to see if Zampa was playing. As Zampa isn't playing I would've gone

Zampa > Playing bowler
and Maddinson > on field for Finch

instead I had to make the call of

Finch is expensive and has NAT duty coming out so trade him out and hope Zampa plays

now I cop a Zampa doughnut ::)

That's why you don't get players who play so far down the order and score the vast majority of their runs with the bat

Yeah I know now. ::) Never picking a batsman that bats lower than 3 again. Especially from the Stars.

He'll bat higher up though with Maxwell on ODI duties.

Because of how my team was, I didn't really have the luxury of trading in too many Scorchers. The best I was able to do was get Ashton Turner in for Nathan Hauritz which worked out brilliantly, but I was too scared to make him captain because I wasn't sure how he'd go.

Knew White would open and possibly get a catch or two.

Probably should have given Maxi the C, but whatever... already behind the 8 ball.  :P

Nah his score is doubled after the two games have been combined.

So he scored 52 in the first game and is currently -20, so 32 in total (66 as captain).

Wonder how many teams will bring in Arafat after the bye. Listed now at $93k. I will consider it.

As an aside though Ryan Harris will be available for Brisbane Heat for next rounds (not tonight) as well so he will probably come into consideration as well

This is a non-contest

Birt > Khawaja
Nannes > Bollinger

Khawaja has only ever had 1 good T20 innings, Birt was one of the best bats in BBL02 and isn't going too bad this year

Nannes wouldn't even use Doug the Rug to decorate his house.

That way I can trade out my 2 thunder bats next week if I need.

If Huss fails in next match Nails you can catch up.  Thought it reasonably safe to make him C as I did not have a lot of other options apart from Cutting.  Shah with only 3 points will allow you some catch up as well.

Was setting up for teams with the double bye and double games last week as well to help.

Laughlin run out and game over. It's annoying as I was considering trading him in. I got confused by the Hurricanes' doughnuts lowering their averages.

How is Laughlin a spud? One of the best T20 bowlers in the country, which is why he has played for Australia. I wouldn't say Bollinger is their best bowler either. Hilfy is better, as is Laughlin.

Botha is a 50/50 chance of playing tomorrow I think. Would definitely be looking at getting him in if he was fit and if I didn't have enough good all-rounders.

My beef scoring 715 and still getting beaten in one League by the 8th placed player scoring 751.  Both scores 150 above the next highest.
8) 8) 8)

Ranked 188 for the Round with that 751 and now up to 2349 overall.

Very happy considering how bad my luck has been.

Spare a thought for me then Ringo. I lost to Nigey as well 745 to 751.

Next best score in the league was 624

Spot on.

This is the second last week.

Unlimited trades come finals time.



Went Pomers -> Katich and Malik -> Wright.

Might yet go Neser if I change my mind at some point throughout the day.

My ranking has been steadily declining over the past 3-4 weeks. Now at 709 overall...

Have no clue what trades to makes, do we know if Vettori is going to play?
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Ringo on January 16, 2014, 11:57:01 AM
Ranking now up to 120

This is current team for this week before any trades:

Lynn; Katich; Birt; Shah (M Hussey)
L Wright, M Marsh (Henriques)  Quandry which 2 to start
Dunk (Kieswetter)
Bird, Laughlin, Cutting, Vettori (Floros)

Awaiting teams to be announced before finalising trades as Lynn withdraw from PM 11 but can not find any further info on injury or availabilty,

All being Normal trades being considered Shah > S Smith and Vettori to Harris (If Harris named)

VC on Katich tonight

Would probably go Wright.

Opens and has a better chance of getting a good score as if Duke goes wicket-less, then he's not gonna get too much.

That said, I have both. Maxi on the bench.

Would have been better if I had the Kahunas to make him Captain. Did dice with the idea and stuck to the supposedly reliable Hussey who failed with 2 and then did not bat long in the Thunders chase but not alone there,

If I don't get rid of Khawaja I'd have to play Maddinson, but not end of world.

Yes you agree, good lad :)  you know you fluked it and are man enough to admit, good work

The fact the Strikers play twice doesn't make it not a fluke, those two have been so bad even an idiot would struggle to bring em in

Hmm tough one. Would be more inclined to go Wright or Cutting. Say Nesser gets 1 wicket next game would give him 47. I think Wright can beat that if he gets a bowl. But then again if nesser gets a few wickets then youll be spewin. Then again he could get 0 wickets and end up on 27 from 2 games. So tough one..

I'd stick with Neser captain personally. The others could get a duck and be -20, if Neser gets a duck in the next game then at least he still gets 7.

I brought Hughes in as well. I actually reckon it's better to trade in players that are out of form in this comp rather than players that are in form.

Hughes loves the WACA and was due for a big one.

Yeah, always means they are due for runs!! Just like big boy Simmons last night haah!!

Brought hughes in also, #genius

Legendary. Especially with Klinger out. I had Klinger in my team but offloaded him and Huss. Hussey let me down as big C last gameweek :(.

alright, so far happier I traded in Hales haha. Hopefully my solid last night can continue through the remaining three games. :) More runs from Hales would be golden. :D

Didn't realise the draw worked like this...

You realise those of you wondering whether to put a C on and not take Neser etc.

You don't even really have to decide that difficult. Neser and co play their 2nd game before the games for: Gades, Sixers, Stars and Canes start

So you'll know what his full score is before you have to decide.

Same as you a couple of weeks ago mate. Away for the weekend and had to sort trades out before I went and as a result did not have the option of playing around with VC loophole or emergency loophole due to players involved.  henriques and Kiewsetter may have come into consideration for emergency loophole if I had access to computer, I have 204 on the bench more than my 6 players 148.

Benching Henriques over Neser was a killer.

I only went Maxwell > Henriques because I wanted to get Neser's double game which meant I had to bench 1 of Henriques and Wright

Wright and Henriques both outscoring captain Neser ::)
Bollinger on bench over Lee a killer too.

Know how you feel mate and as you know after my dreadful start came home strong but ran out of puff,

After 3 games I had a higher score the Bench  204 (Henriques and Kiewsetter) than the 148 from the six players who played. Thank Heavens for strong games from Dunk, Birt, Laughlin and Wright who I captained to take me to 508.

With my 506 Ranking dropped to 186

Trying to decide whether to trade this week or not.

Lyn, Birt, Hussey, Smith and Kattich
Wright, Henriques (M Marsh)
Dunk. (Kiewsetter)
Bird, Laughl;in, Cutting, Harris (Floros)

Think Smith is called into ODI side will not play can any confirm.  may not trade and use him for loop hole if need be.

There is really one match I need to win as I am sitting 6th in that but have a healthy percentage and hoping to get into four.

Top in 3 leagues and 2nd in another

Bench your strikers and renegades, wait to see how well they do, then work trades around that. if Hales and Nevill dominate, then trade out Kieswetter and a batter to two guys not playing.

Ok with Hughes out I'm thinking of going Hughes --> B. Hodge @ $53,100. But then I can't use the captain loophole since all my players will be playing, and with no double GW this week choosing a captain might be difficult.

ALR: M. Marsh, M. Henriques (S. Malik)
WKP: C. Kieswetter (P. Nevill)

I am probably not trading till after the Hurricanes Heat Game.  I will be putting the VC on one of players in the first 2 games and then work out trades and c emergencies after that. In your case you could keep Hughes on the field to work the loop hole if need be.

You can play him on the field though and then work your emergencies and VC around him. eg Make Birt VC and if after tomorrows game he has high score then put C on Hughes but if not yoiu have the other options to put C on as well.

Bear in mind you only have to make final 4 and then you have unlimited trades for semifinals and finals.

But Hughes plays for the Strikers who are playing tonight, so won't he be locked in (can't put the C on him) tonight?

Thoughts? Should I be making any trades before match 1?

I figure if I put all my strikers/gades on the bench if they FIRE I'll trade in a non-playing player for the worst on field player left.

However if they go shower I can keep that dodgy player or upgrade him to the best player still available. Thoughts? Big issues is if all 4 fire I might not be able to get them all playing

Will Wade be playing this week? Should I be trading in a better Keeper if he isn't? IDK

I'd trade Maddinson to someone who definitely won't play in the Scorchers/Stars game (Dwayne Smith?) so you have a non-playing player for the captain loophole.

If Birt goes big tomorrow as your VC then you'll want his score but all your players will be playing. Then leave your other trade for the Strikers/Renegades players loophole tonight.

BWL: B. Hogg, D. Nannes, J. Hazlewood, N. Rimmington (K. Richardson)



Players in blue are playing tonight, not sure whether to start Rimmington or Richardson yet...

Think Hughes --> Davis is my best option. Now I can VC Birt and if he goes big I can chuck the C on Davis, otherwise if Birt scores shower I'll chuck it on Henriques or someone else.

@Nails - Fair enough, since Hughes is locked in tonight I need to trade him now. ::) So I've gone Hughes --> Liam Davis from Scorchers (hope like hell he doesn't get a call up lol).

BAT: M. Hussey, T. Birt, D. Hussey, L. Davis (A. Hales)

TRADE IN A PLAYER NOT A NON-PLAYING PLAYER IMO

Your 2nd trade can be used to trade in a non-playing player imo

Get somebody good as if your VC goes shower, it's pointless having brought in a non-playing player.

What if one of your other players trips and hurts ankle just before the game? Worst comes to worst and Birt smashes it, you can use your SECOND trade to trade in a doughnut C option and one that you are SURE won't play.

Bravo as VC soon to be Captain yes.  Holding off though to ensure Steve Smith definitely does not play.  If he does there will be a trade to another non playing player.

@Nails - Wade to Kieswetter/Dunk is a must trade. Would probably go Dunk as Kieswetter is very up and down.

Then would go Wright to non-playing player (you can flip a coin between Henriques/Wright but I don't want Wright to do well vs Scorchers).
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Nails on January 23, 2014, 03:08:51 PM
Yeah think I'd back in Henriques

I think Henriques is a more sure thing as he tends to always bowl 3+ overs whereas Wright is solely on batting most times and therefore is a higher chance to fail.

Just wish Wade would play so I could flower Maddinson off for Hales.  I think having all 4 on the bench was the safest option, but sad to see 44 not get used.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Ringo on January 23, 2014, 03:12:04 PM

Wade to Dunk and why not Maddinson to a non player as Henriques or Wright can still score as well.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Nails on January 23, 2014, 03:13:27 PM
Think is Maddinson can also score well

He's against the Thunder

The problem is though Ringo, I'm more likely to gain points trading out Henriques

If Henriques/Wright score to average I lose ~42 points not trading them out. I only lose ~24 if I don't trade Maddinson out and he scores to average.

Seriously tempted to play Shoaib Malik over Mitch Marsh...

Usually would just keep Malik on the bench and see how he goes before using the loophole, but I've already used one of my trades and already need to trade one of Hogg/Hazlewood/Nannes to a non-playing player so I can get Richardson's 59 on the field and if Malik scores 60+ on my bench I don't want to choose between taking his or Richardson's score... (if only I benched Rimmington instead :( ).


BAT: M. Hussey, T. Birt (VC), D. Hussey, L. Davis (A. Hales 44)

ALR: M. Henriques, M. Marsh (S. Malik)

WKP: C. Kieswetter (P. Nevill -8)

BWL: B. Hogg, J. Hazelwood, N. Rimmington 12, D. Nannes (K. Richardson 59)


Thoughts? 20 minutes left...

Hey guys, not sure what do this week. Still have two trades to use. I know Steve Smith isn't playing tomorrow so I might leave him so I can get Hales 44 off the bench. I have $16,600 Remaining. Any thoughts guys?
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Adamant on January 24, 2014, 10:35:30 PM
^Keep Smith and take the 44 I reckon.

Would go Hastings to Henriques and keep the other trade depending on how Henriques goes, if he kills it you can trade Marsh to a non-playing all rounder. Otherwise keep him on the field if Moises goes bang again.

Could do the same with Rose alternatively.

Did exactly the same Meph but instead made Bravo VC but then put C on Steve Smith.  After a shocking week last week where I scored only 476 dropped to 213.  Hoping to make my way up the ladder this week currently on 593 for the week with Katich (sub for Smith) and Bird to come.

Keep Bird and get O'Brien's 4 which means I'd go Wright > non-player and get Neser's 95 for a total of 99 points

Or do I trade Bird to somebody and hope Bowler + Wright can score more than 99 points

think I'll just take O'Brien and Neser's scores.

Probs not worth it though, would have to put 1 of them as captain I think which would ruin it. 50 each is a pretty big score, don't think I'd back them to score 50+ each either.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Nige on January 26, 2014, 05:49:13 PM
If the bowler got two wickets, that's 40 points. Add to that a possible ER bonus of 12 or 20 and you've got 50 points.

Luke Wright's an AR. If he scores nicely with bat and gets a 12 or 20 point SR bonus, you should get about 50 from him.

Then if you take into account the possibility of catches, there's like 12 points.

Okay, so that's probably optimism at its finest, but it's not impossible.

Will await and see who is available before deciding on teams. What is departure date for SA will Aussie players be available for semi finals and finals. T20 finishes 2nd February and Semis start 4th February so assuming all T20 players are available. Ist Test starts in SA on 12th February but when do players leave as Final is 7th February.

For information I have climbed to 74 place with my 688 from last week so will also be hoping to get into top 50.

Scored a putrid 276 this week, overall ranking now back out to 489th.

I got so unlucky with my 50/50 calls this week - first I fielded Rimmington (12) over Richardson (59) on Wednesday night, then I had to choose between Hazelwood (44), Nannes (12) and Hogg (20) on who to trade out for a non-playing player to get Richardson's score.

Decided on trading Hazlewood. ::) Other 50/50 calls I got wrong was fielding Marsh (15) over Malik (34) and captaining Henriques (27) over Hales (44). So those calls really killed me this week.

Oh, I also didn't end up trading in Hodge who made 61. :(

Ok with Hughes out I'm thinking of going Hughes --> B. Hodge @ $53,100.

Horror round.

Australia have a match against a South Africa invitational 11 on Feb 5-8.

This is the squad that's flying to South Africa on Wednesday January 29th but Henriques will fly out after playing in the 20/20 against England.

Test squad Michael Clarke (capt), Brad Haddin (vice-capt), Jackson Bird, Alex Doolan, Moises Henriques, Ryan Harris, Mitchell Johnson, Shaun Marsh, Nathan Lyon, James Pattinson, Chris Rogers, Peter Siddle, Steven Smith, David Warner, Shane Watson.

Henriques is replacing Faulkner and Marsh and Bird will remain in Australia under injury clouds.

So I doubt any of these guys will be available

I'm not sure I like having both Maxwell and Wright in my team. Though they are the obvious choices. Hobart's bowling line-up is pretty decent though so maybe looking elsewhere could pay off.

How many are really paying attention to the next 2 rounds of BBL Fantasy with semifinals today and tomorrow and final on Friday.  There are unlimited trades no head to head but results count for overall.

As I currently have a position of 74 think I may continue to try and get into top 50.

My team for semifinals
Bat: Smith (c) White (VC) Birt, Bailey, (Hodge)
A/R: Hastings, Maxwell (Marsh)
W/K Dunk (Paine)
Bowl: Laughlin, Hogg, Coulter-Nile, Starc (Boland)

Can't win overall, and did dismal in head to head, just playing for pride. Not sure which players to pick, especially the all-rounders...

The three Stars boys - Maxi, Duke and Wright have to be considered, but it's more or less a matter of which to leave out imo.  :(

I'm thinking Wright.

Nice lookin team. I am no chance to finish anywhere that high.

Backing Katich to get a big one and think that maybe Wade will outdo Dunk. Otherwise my team looks pretty much like yours.

Capt on Maxwell for me though

How on earth can you afford that team? Those bench players are amazing. My team is similar. Few differences. But bench players are real average.

Post by: Ringo on February 04, 2014, 02:45:49 PM
For information my team value is $1,208,300

Will be making a change in that Hodge may become Davis to take advantage of VC Loophole with Maxwell.

Made a mistake as well Wade is reserve keeper not Paine.

Few players went of the radar eg had Dunk from Round 1 when priced at $36k now $109k as an example others to show big gains are Steve Smith and NCN

My team is now...

Katich, White, Bopara, Bailey (North)
Maxwell, Hastings (O'Keefe)
Dunk (Handscomb)
Laughlin, Lee, NCN, Muirhead (Turner)

Pretty happy with it tbh.

Going to give it a good shake as I'm just two spots behind you Ringo.

Don't have the salary cap that you do I'm afraid.

I'm going all out this week and have sacrificed my depth/bench players. Which could work in my favour with the loophole as I have a few to pick from.

Team:

Bat: White, Katich, Bailey, Bopara. (Maddinson)
All: Wright, Maxwell. (Keath).
WK: Paine (Handscomb)
Bwl: Coulter-Nile, Malinga, Laughlin, Starc (Copeland).

Who are people going for captain and vice-captain.

I'm thinking Maxwell for VC and then I'll loophole him if he goes well otherwise maybe Coulter-Nile.

A/R: Hastings, Maxwell (Marsh)

Bowl: Laughlin, Behrendorf, Coulter-Nile, Starc (Hogg)

Two years in a row 4th placed team knocks top placed out in semis. Watch the push to change the final series structure as a team undefeated in round robin goes out in one.

Why is not Boyce being considered as Australia spinner rather than Muirhead,

To be fair this would be a better arrangement and could be promoted as BBL Finals week.

Match 1 Monday  1st plays second (Ist home ground) (Winner straight to GF)
Match 2 Tuesday 3rd play 4th (3rd's home ground) Loser out

Match 3 Thursday Loser of Match 1 v Winner of Match 2  at Losers homeground

Match 4 Saturday GF Winner Match 1 v Winner Match 3 at Winner of Match 1 home ground

Puts in an extra game though but adds fairness.

An extra game would just mean extra money for the league, could be scheduling issues though with international duties.

Team I have for semis is:

Katich, Hodge, Bopara, Bailey - Davis
Maxwell, M Marsh - Keath
Dunk - Triffitt
Hazlewood, Coulter-Nile, Laughlin, Malinga - Van Der Gugten

Didn't have a very big salary cap so bench players are all non-playing players to get a better starting side. Put the VC on Maxwell so am now thinking C on NCN or Katich.
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Ringo on February 05, 2014, 03:14:00 PM
No that scores have been updated will propbably end up with worse score of the season currently 236 from 7 with Katich (c) Coulter Nile, Behrendorf and Starc to come. (Hogg, Marsh and Simmons on bench)
Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: SydneyRox on February 05, 2014, 05:01:16 PM
Yeah, horrible round for me. I banked on the Stars going big.

So the C on Maxwell hurt, along with Wade and White both failing :(

232 with Katich, Coulter Nile, and Hazelwood to come

So thats why you score is going up so quickly.  Really hurting seeing that 121 on the bench with Cameron Whites six on the field.

Well played Simmons at least one trade I do not have to make for final game.

Can understand ele so just letting you know I am supporting the Hurricanes although I was barracking for the Scorchers last night.

Despite my shocking score of 368 for the semifinals still managed to climb up to position 58 overall. So goal to get into top 50 is now realistic

Preliminary Team for final:
Bat: Bailey (c), Katich (VC) Simmons, Birt (Voges)
A/R: Malik, Mitch Marsh (Mascarenhaus)
W/K: Dunk (Paine)
Bowl: Laughlin, Behrendorf, Boyce, Couler-Nile (Hogg)

Comments welcome.

Well, not that it mean alot with all the outs etc, but here is the team I am going with, not going to have time this arvo for when teams annouced, but think I have covered the in/outs.

Bat : Katich (c), Birt, Marsh, Bailey - Cummins
A/R : Marsh, Mascarenhaus - Gulbis
W/K : Dunk (vc) - Paine
Bowl : Boyce, Cummins, Coulter-Nile, Doherty, Paris


Title: Re: Big Bash League Fantasy BB03
Post by: Ringo on February 07, 2014, 10:52:32 AM
With outs Malik becomes Gulbis and Mascarenhaus comes onto field ( Awaiting announcements of teams to finalise whether Gulbis, Cartwright or Armstrong)
Laughlin becomes Cummins

As you say SR does not mean much but trying to get into top 50 currently ranked 58

Is Laughlin not playing?? Cartwright and Armstrong both wont play. Turner should be an all rounder. But if MArsh plays turrner is out. Everyone basically will go M Marsh and Mascarenhaus....

Did not quite make the Top 50 ended up at 52. Most teams would have been neraly identical anyway which would have made it hard get up.

In hindsight these bad decisions probably cost me:
Playing Boyce and leaving Hogg on the Bench.
Reversing one initial trade I made Katich to Saun Marsh - Head told me coming back from injury to take care but should have went with gut.
