Eh, we still have Clive Rose, Glenn Maxwell and somebody else (I'm blanking now) as spin options who will probably be in the XI.

Edit: Huss and KP is we get desperate.

I think Cliffy and Maxi will be the two we use though.

Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: _wato on November 24, 2014, 06:33:10 PM
So they won't even use Beer you think Nige? Interesting.

Any would Perth want Muirhead? They already have loads of pace men, that's just a very weird trade.

They will, I was just listing other spinning options.

The Stars have a really good squad, so picking the XI won't be easy.

White
KP
Bobby
Feldman
Stoinis
Cliffy
Barrel
Beery
Wright
Maxi
Faulks
Duke
Keath
Hank
Huss
Bird
Worrall
CMac

Picking the XI from that is tough.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on November 24, 2014, 08:11:57 PM
From that I see the XI (providing everybody is fit/available) roughly looking like:

1. Wright
2. White
3. KP
4. Huss
5. Maxi
6. Hank
7. Faulks
8. Duke
9. Feldman
10. Stoinis/Barrel
11. Beery

Either Cliffy or whoever doesn't get picked out of Stoinis/Barrel as 12th man.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Adamant on November 24, 2014, 08:26:03 PM
Carberry to Scorchers... Is he any good at T20??

He was the 2nd top run scorer in last years UK T20 Blast. Perfect replacement for Simmons at the top order!
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: _wato on November 24, 2014, 11:30:37 PM
Yeah you're right Q, I got him mistaken for the bald bloke who bowls for the Renegades hahaha, don't ask me why either.

Surely Jackson Bird and Clint Mckay are in that team Nige? Both former Australian short and long format players and both posess the great ability to take wickets and bowl economically (especially Bird).

1. Wright
2. White
3. KP
4. Huss
5. Maxi
6. Handscomb
7. Faulks
8. Hastings
9. Feldman
10. Bird
11. Beery

Just so I could understand who they were without thinking (changed a few names) haha, but wouldn't you go with that?
McKay, Stoinis, Barrel, Cliffy as 12th man, surely?
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: _wato on November 24, 2014, 11:40:16 PM

1. Carberry
2. Klinger

5. M Marsh

9. Hogg

Forgot our newest signing Wato

Samuel Badree
Just a few facts on him:
"Badree has played 22 T20 Internationals for the West Indies, taking 31 wickets and is currently the number one ranked ICC bowler in T20 cricket.

Quite amazingly, he has the second best economy rate in the world in all T20 international and domestic matches."

Will the Heat surprise by going with a twin spin attack of Vettori and Badree,

It's a tough one.

The quality of pace bowlers is ridiculous, that's why like I said it's so hard to pick. Inevitably, I had to leave some good players out.

I love Jackson Bird, but I'm probably more biased to Stoinis and Barrel (Boland) who are both Vics. They both bowl pace and Stoinis is an allrounder and is handy with the bat in hand too (just like Faulkner).

Speaking of, Faulks is a lock if fit. Then we've got long time Stars in CMac and Duke, the latter of which is capable of a cameo with the bat.

Feldman's been around for a while and has bowled well previously for Queensland and the Sydney Thunder, I can't see them leaving out the new guy.

So you've got: Stoinis, Boland, Bird, Faulkner, McKay, Hastings, Feldman, Wright and Worrall.

Wright's the opener, he won't be left out.
Feldman the new guy, he won't be left out.
Faulkner's got the allround ability, he won't be left out.

Still looking at two more from that list of Stoinis, Boland, Bird, McKay, Hastings, Worrall.

You probably rule out Worrall to narrow it down to 5, but you still have to pick two of them from 5.

yeah sorta had to.. as the bowlers were my last picks.. And the spinners were all dirt cheap for their potential to get wickets.. may try and work something to free up more cash and trade one to another paceman like laughlin or bird.

The 'Gades just signed Andre Russell of the Windies as their second international.

For those that don't know, Dwayne Bravo is playing the first 4 games, and Jesse Ryder is playing the last 4 which counts as one international.

At least I've got the luxury of pretty much replacing him with anybody I want.

Kieswetter will only play after Morgan leaves though, so you can play Hartley for the first 4 games and then switch to Peirson.

Oh right. Still, I don't want to have to be thinking of how I am going to bring in Dunk as I don't want to be starting Peirson in the back end of the year (who knows where he'll bat).

Easier to just set and forget with Dunk or go with the cheaper T-Paine.

Yep, fair enough.

I still think I'm flirting with danger in not having Dunk, but I think I'll stick my gut and leave him out.

Still not sure whether to pick Whiteman or Handscomb, leaning towards Whiteman because he generally bats further up the order than Hank, but the latter has been in crazy good form.

He batted at like 4 last Big Bash iirc, but I could be wrong.

Need to work out rough team XIs.

I wouldn't touch Matty Wade, plus I think Peter Nevill will keep for the Gades but he bats low too.

Dunno much about Peirson.

Ryan Carters bats too low to be considered as well.

Looks like I might have to fork out the cash for Dunk.

Finch, Pieterson, Hales, Maddinson (Head)
Wright, Henriques (Turner)
Hartley (Peirson)
Rimmington, Badree, Bollinger, Doherty (Paris)

He'll be in my side if Beer isn't named for round one (want at least three Stars for their DGW round one).

I reckon he'd be a lot more popular if there wasn't so much value to be had in the batsmen this year.

I'm second guessing my selection of Wright as an allrounder. The thing is that you really want your allrounders to be both batting and bowling as well as potentially picking up runs from fielding as well, the likelihood of Luke Wright not getting a bowl is pretty high, particularly with the additions of Feldman and Beer.

yeah thats true! He does bowl pretty well but Nige. I reckon they will bowl him. Can only play so many of those bowlers in the team mate. All rounders are value for a team. Not like test matches where bowlers will be from 8-11. A lot of bloks in T20 hold a bat at 8. Like faulkner cutting etc... Its a batsmans game. And a batsmen who can bowl will get used
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on December 09, 2014, 02:45:54 PM
That's the thing though, pretty much the whole Stars squad can bowl, even part time.

All the main guys that should get games pretty have bowled part time some point in their careers and I reckon in that 20 overs that they have, they'll probably use other options.

If Faulkner, Hastings, Beer, Maxwell, Feldman, plus then somebody like McKay, Boland or Bird get played, I can't see Wright getting overs.

Yeah toughyyyy. Last year it was the same but and wright still bowled at least a couple overs each game. He opens the batting anyway. If he opens and bowls 2 overs a game. I can justify starting him in an allrounder spot.

Meaning he would miss out on the second game of the Hurricanes Double Game Week?
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: PowerBug on December 12, 2014, 04:16:12 PM
As long as that flog of an ODI player Alastair Cook is playing, Hales won't be in the ODI side.
Hales has played 1 of the 5 matches against Sri Lanka so far, only because Cook was suspended for slow over rates.

I'm under the assumption that all the batsmen, allrounders and keeper I've picked will bat top 3, which I reckon is pretty important.

With 3 trades a week, I'm looking at taking full advantage of the DGW's.

I reckon I'll start a set and forget keeper line-up with Hartley and Pierson.
Will pick 1 set and forget batsmen and bowler.

Then just all about maximizing the opportunity for double points.
Planning trades, weeks in advance will be almost compulsory if you are any chance of winning the comp.

Yeah you would need to either:

1) Get 20 mins online on the 28th to make your trades
2) Pick you starting lineup with no Stars/Heat. Have Scorchers in all sub positions (they will come on in Rd2 with a DGW) And pick bulk 6ers.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread

Hey mate, some interesting points raised in your article, but I don't fully agree with it.

As much as I hate to say this, I think you need to stay away from Cutting. He bats too far down the order to justify selection as an allrounder.

Also not sure about Boyce. He is one of the best spinners in the country, but I'm not sure who will get games out of him and Doherty. Can't really see Hobart playing 2 spinners.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on December 15, 2014, 09:38:53 PM
Yeah, Doherty will play for sure. He's really really good in the short form. Likely to bowl all four overs and be fairly economical.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: BB67th on December 16, 2014, 04:22:59 PM
I think the Hurricanes will probably play the two spinners. Boyce has been in good form, and he did kill it when he played the T20Is.

One of our other writers also did a bargain buys article today.

Forrest? You'd be flowering brave to touch Forrest with a 10 foot pole.

Given the Stars pace options and McKay being generally out of favour and not as good as he was, can't see him getting a look.

The rest could be value picks.

Haha, I certainly don't agree with the Forrest pick myself mate, I've never been a fan of the man.

And it will be interesting to see if McKay does get picked. I think he should be in the side, his changes of pace are very useful in the short game.

My thoughts were at the end as well yeah. The rules are happy to say that players with DGW get locked out on the first game, but nothing on the bye players...

Since it says players get locked out when their real match starts, one would assume they don't get locked out, but I'll ask just for clarification. I may or may not be planning loopholes ;)

Yep, since Wade left and Handscomb got injured.

Wouldn't touch Triffitt though, won't bat high enough which means you'd be relying on him purely to get point while fielding.

Lawford and Kingston would be my guess. Although we have 3 death bowlers + a spinner and no one who can really bowl in the middle. So maybe Tait misses for Kingston?

Hey Nige, what do you think about Dave Husseys JS like and do you think he will bowl if he plays?
The world will end before Huss misses, he's a lock in the team. He's a great finisher, so if we're batting second and we need somebody to close out the run chase, he'll bat up the order. Realistically could bat anywhere from 4-6, which means some games he might not play.

He'll may get a bowl every now and then, don't bet on it each game with both Beer and Maxi in the side though. Has been known to open the bowling (as is common in T20s these days), usually gets involved in the field too.

Hey buddy, I think you need to strengthen your batting line up. With the scoring system, bowlers get 20 points for a wicket which makes me think that you should go cheap in the bowlers and spend more on the batsmen. With that thinking Im really tossing up whether to pick Bird. Wouldn't pick Vettori either, too injury prone and there's better value than him imo.

Also, what do you guys think of Hilfy? Thinking of picking him upp for Starc, been in awesome form lately in the Shield.

Also had Joel Paris (as well as Berhrendorff), realised I'd have to ditch Paris since Scorchers have the bye Week 1. Brought in X since he'll play every game and is cheap as chips. Means I just have to put up with him Week 1 while Dorff has his bye.

http://supercoachhq.com/2014/12/fantasy-bbl-fixture-trade-guide/ (http://supercoachhq.com/2014/12/fantasy-bbl-fixture-trade-guide/)
- Yasir Arafat, Michael Carberry, Michael Lumb, Dwayne Smith, Jacques Kallis, Eoin Morgan, Johan Botha, Andrew Flintoff, Alex Hales, Darren Sammy, Luke Wright, Kevin Pietersen available for entire competition
- Kieron Pollard, Daniel Vettori, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell temporarily available for selection

I thought Smith, Morgan and Sammy were only available for the first 4 games? Could be wrong.

Read somewhere Vettori would miss the first game.

Someone let me know if any of these players have 0 chance to play through being shower or being injured. Thanks]

Finch, Lynn, White, Maddinson (Blizzard)
Wright, Cutting (Abbott)
Ludeman (Carters)
Bird, Boyce, Vettori, McKay (Doherty)
McKay isn't in the Stars 13 man squad for tomorrow, so I wouldn't pick him. Also don't pick Vettori, better value than him. Also wouldn't pick Boyce. Can't see Hobart playing him and Doherty.

Cutting bats too far down the order to justify selecting him as an allrounder.

I think you've spent too much of your bowlers and not enough on your batsmen. Bowlers score a lot better than batsmen, as 1 wicket is 20 points, so spend more on batsmen and less on bowlers.

Hazlewood is in the test team so will only play a couple of games at best.

Other than that a sound team.

It's possible that they're only available for a few games, but the information I could find said they will play the whole season. The website isn't great for that kind of info though.

Dunk (Hartley)
Bird, Laughlin, Bollinger (Paris)

I've got $44,100 remaining for my last bowler, who's the best option around that price?

With Dunk, I think he'll lose money, although he will score well. A bit like Rocky coming up this year in AFL. I think theres more value picking Hartley and Peirson over him.

Should give you another couple of dollars.

Hey Lads any chance for Dan Christian to open? I've got a fair maount of Stars and Haat players and they both have the bye in R2. He opened the batting in their warm-up match and that makes him a hell of a lot more valuable, but if hes just as likely to stay at 4/5 I may swap him for Pollard that leaves me with more players in R2

I don't think he'll open. Probably wouldn't even pick him if he did  :-X.

I'd be carefully of Flintoff Ringo. I can see him batting at 8 or 9. You can't justify picking an allrounder batting there.

Yep, I agree.

Wouldn't touch Doolan either, plenty of better bench options.

People should avoid Cummins too, don't say I didn't warn ya.

Here's what I think the Heat starting 11 will look like.

1. Joe Burns
2. James Peirson
3. Chris Lynn
4. Nathan Reardon
5. Peter Forrest
6. Dan Christian
7. James Hopes
8. Ben Cutting
9. Andrew Flintoff
10. Daniel Vetorri
11. Alister McDermott/Cameron Gannon

Im probably wrong and one of those batsmen, Forrest maybe will be dropped and McDermott/Gannon will go in. But this is how I want to see it.

Take home message - DON'T PICK BRISBANE HEAT ALL ROUNDERS.

Because there are just better options and I don't trust Cummins at all.

I'd pick every other Thunder pace bowler before him.

Triffitt (Whiteman)
Bird, Beer, Bollinger, Doherty (Hogg)

Trades after Rd 1
Burns - Klinger
Maxwell/Faulkner - Henriques
Bird - Arafat

Thoughts?

Which combo do you guys prefer?

Hales, Sandhu, Laughlin
Hodge, Boyce, Rimmington

Even though I prefer either Hodge over Hales or Boyce over Sandhu, my Round 2 strategy would see Hales/Hodge on the bench and Boyce/Sandhu traded out for Arafat, so I'm thinking of going option 1 as I prefer Laughlin over Rimmington in the long term.

I'd probably lean towards option 1 just, because Hales=Hodge, Sandhu>Boyce and Rimmington>Laughlin... so imo it's pretty even.

I'm happy for people to keep sleeping on my boys Sandhu and Rimmo though.

So I had Doherty, but realised that since the Stars play twice, I reckon it's probably smarter to have a Stars bowler who will play both games. I'm fairly sure Scott 'The Barrel' Boland will, but I'm wondering whether it's worth keeping a bit of cash and going for Michael Beer instead. Can't justify picking Jackson Bird at top dollar.

Loving my last minute decision to bring in Ludeman on the bench. Just went Wade > Whiteman (perfect in time for his DGW next week) to take Ludes' huge effort.

386/6 - C played.

Ludeman 124
Wright 57x2=114
KP 90
Laughlin 40
Beer 12
White 6

Post by: PowerBug on December 18, 2014, 09:25:51 PM
Well putting Ludeman in worked :D Leaving Whiteman in now as he has the bye :D
Laughlin on my bench with 40, idk whether to take that.
Pollard duck on the field... Had thought of benching him instead but he was in form so decided to play him :(
Pietersen as Vice Captain, will loophole him as captain.
Dave Hussey on the bench. His next game will decide whether I turn his brother Mike to a Scorcher or not.

so 352 with 9 to play :D

"England squad in turmoil"
"It is rumoured that a terrible bug has run through the English camp. Allegedly it was picked up on the tour of Sri Lanka, with the following players suffering from a new disease that is yet to be clarified. Alastair Cook, James Taylor, Steven Finn and Chris Jordan. It is unknown on the return dates of these players, but they will be missing the World Cup. England have asked for special permission to select a player from outside the squad of 30, and it can be confirmed that replacing them are the following: Gary Ballance, Harry Guerny, Ryan Sidebottom and Kevin Pietersen"

Van der Gugten and Mennie I reckon.

Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: PowerBug on December 19, 2014, 11:35:03 AM
Hmmm ok. Hilfenhaus would be the number one strike bowler there? He looks tempting, at only $58k. So does Doherty at $34k

For those that have missed it, here are the 13 man squads for tonight:
Renegades: Aaron Finch, Ben Rohrer, Matthew Wade (WK), Tom Cooper, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell, Andrew Fekete, Nathan Rimmington, Peter Siddle, Callum Ferguson, Fawad Ahmed, Matthew Short, Nick Winter

Sixers: Moises Henriques, Sean Abbott, Doug Bollinger, Ryan Carters (WK), Ed Cowan, Luke Doran, Ben Dwarshuis, Simon Keen, Brett Lee, Michael Lumb, Nic Maddinson, Jordan Silk


So the Renegades look to have only 6 bowlers, which means Fekete could be in for overs, possible option down at $38k. The Sixers have also got 6, not sure on Abbott's batting abaility but he is named as an AR, I'm thinking of picking him as a bowler only, $50k

So by my count, which is completely different to what the site says, because of all my loopholing, I have 592 points with the following players remaining: K. Pietersen (x2), D. Hussey, B.Hilfenhaus, N.Hauritz. If Dave Hussey spuds tomorrow then I will leave Mike Hussey in my side and use his score instead (Dave is on my bench atm, will trade a Scorcher in if Dave scores well)


Edit: Still deciding on my bowlers. Changed it to Doherty and Steketee. I'll find something I like, it also needs to be something that can work for my 3 trades that I will use throughout next round.

  Was out last night so missed the match came in this morning to check my scores and no updates at all from last nights game. Very slack and if I remember last year similar thing happened for some weekend games.  Not good enough if you want to promote a fantasy game.  >:( >:( >:(

I hope no one had Beer.  :P

Was tossing up between him and Richardson all week, eventually thought I'd start with beer because he has the DGW, Richardson got 60 odd Beer gets 13 from 2 games lol.

Hales was great for me too lol.

I realised I had Maddinson on the bench, so had to trade out Lynn (my only bat yet to play) for Voges so I can get his score.

So by my count, which is completely different to what the site says, because of all my loopholing, I have 592 points with the following players remaining: K. Pietersen (x2), D. Hussey, B.Hilfenhaus, N.Hauritz. If Dave Hussey spuds tomorrow then I will leave Mike Hussey in my side and use his score instead (Dave is on my bench atm, will trade a Scorcher in if Dave scores well)


Edit: Still deciding on my bowlers. Changed it to Doherty and Steketee. I'll find something I like, it also needs to be something that can work for my 3 trades that I will use throughout next round.
Went with Doherty... Damn

So 654 with Mike Hussey and Mark Steketee to play. If they get me over 700 I'll be happy. Currently got 6 players with a DGW next round as well, might raise that to 7 with trades.

Well I have 1 batsman I need to play, I currently have Forrest because I had Hussey on the bench so I am not going to loophole his score and Behrendorf as a bowler so I get Laughlins score?

I would like a better batsman because I don't think Forrest can score 18, so which Bowler do I swap Behrendorf to get a zero but needs to be okay for next round

If you are wanting cheaper than Behrendorf, you could try Hogg or Tye.

I have no money all I can get is basement players if I keep Behrendorf or I pick a non playing player and keep Hussey's 19

Paris is out for 2 weeks according to their Twitter. Also they are missing Brad Hogg. Andrew Tye is set to play both matches. He only costs $65,600, which would be a good pickup for the DGW :)

The squads for both teams for tomorrow:
PERTH SCORCHERS (13-MAN SQUAD)
Adam Voges (c), Ashton Agar, Yasir Arafat, Jason Behrendorff, Michael Carberry, Hilton Cartwright, Marcus Harris, Michael Klinger, Simon Mackin, James Muirhead, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Sam Whiteman.

ADELAIDE STRIKERS (13-MAN SQUAD)
Johan Botha (C), Brad Hodge (vc), Travis Head, Jon Holland, Hamish Kingston, Ben Laughlin, Trent Lawford, Tim Ludeman, Kieron Pollard, Kane Richardson, Alex Ross, Craig Simmons, Adam Zampa.


- Shaun Tait is missing for the Strikers (See squad above)
- Ben Cutting should be traded out ASAP, he is NOT playing tonight (Twitter)
- Kevin Pietersen has a bye in Round 2, but is missing Round 3 (Channel 10 last night)

573 is pretty ordinary. Sandhu, White, Wright (c) and Kallis the main contributors. Dougie and Rimmo not too bad either.

Behrendorff on for Beer, Turner on for Wright and Silk on for White while the Stars have the bye.

Turning Pierson into Ludeman will cost me a bit, plus may have to downgrade one of Hales/Hodge.

160 to be exact 8) Means I'm going to have less DGW players than originally planed for Rd.2 but it was worth it.

A few days before the start I changed tact and went for more DGW players and they were the ones that let me down - White, Beer, Faulkner and even Wright as captain was only serviceable.

Not sure what a good score is but 730 seems okayish.

Scores not updated to confirm my scores but I calculated 802 for me including a massive 294 from Kallis as captain  :D :D Could have been a little better with Abbot on pine and Faulkner playing. 

My DGW players in White, Pietersen went OK as well

Carberry in for White (Bye)
Lumb in for Lynn (Bye)
Behrendorff in for Bird (Bye)

With Beer on the Bench and Doherty on the field, and Wright on the Bench and Abbott on the field.

Let me know if any of these 3 players wont get a gig on are just showerhouse.

Every team plays Round 3, so as long as there are no selections surprises or injuries, my team should be fine while I'm away.

Got 4 DGW players for the upcoming round - Maddinson (traded in for Silk), Behrendorff, Turner and Dougie.

Only one way for me to go now in Leagues. 808 first round score official.  Would have liked 4 trades this week to bring Ludeman in but with the bye and having White Pietersen and Burns all with byes can not do.

Have 5 DGW players this week as well Maddison, Lumb, Abbott, Voges and Bollinger.  Also if Muirhead named will probaly play him instead of Rimmington.

Planned to trade Faulkner to henriques and now because Paris isn't playing I need to trade out Beer and the best Perth bowler I can afford is Tye.

Anyone think I should go Abbott in lieu of Henriques and then I can afford to go Beer to Arafat? Or should I stick with my original plan? (Don't know much about Tye)

Or should I ignore the DGW and trade Beer to someone like Hilfy instead?

Arafat obviously better than Tye.
That being said Tye SHOULD play both games and SHOULD bowl his 4 overs in each.

Ludeman didn't even get past 20 after I brought him in, that'd be right.

At least Dorff is on fire, also having the DGW is handy with the form he's in. Turner just picking up a wicket is handy!

Let's forget the fact that Muirhead was bowling a backfoot no-ball almost every delivery then ;) Foot cannot touch the return crease, let alone go over it. Unless the back foot law doesn't apply to T20 of course.


I'm actually going to try and find clarification on this, because I'm completely stumped over how he got away with ~12 balls where his back foot was landing on and sometimes partly outside the return crease, and the umpire wasn't calling it.

Finally updated :) So after the loopholing etc.. stuff that the site doesn't know but I do, I have the following:
283 points.
Whiteman, Klinger (x2), Abbott (x2), M. Hussey, Arafat, Turner, Bollinger (x2), Maddinson (x2), Finch, Doherty to come.

I still have two trades up my sleeve, one will no doubt be trading Ryan Duffield to Rimmington/Nannes/Sandhu should Doherty do badly today (Doherty is on my bench)

And should Finch find a way to spud up, then Dave Hussey becomes Aiden Blizzard/Eoin Morgan (Likely to be Blizzard due to $$), as I've loopholed Finch as well lol :D 800 points would be nice for the round :)

Crock!  >:(  dunno why he wasn't brought back and even given a bigger role last season! GUN

Flog me, play him over Zampa any day of any week on any pitch against anyone, bowls nice non spinning fruitloops. Zampa hit a nice fluky match winner but that is all he WILL EVER DO! Please don't let Zampa play again :)

How do you loophole the bloke though? Who are you going to put the C on? I am wanting to do it with Lynn's 72, but I don't know how.

Rimmington would've been a good option, but looks like he's going to play tomorrow night.

Brad Hogg might work actually. Has a DGW in 5, and won't play tonight. hmmmmm

I'm noticing Dwarshuis, he has played two games and isn't playing tonight because of Starc I believe. And is $32k.
Trent Lawford (ADL) also $32k, but he might play this round.

Benched Maddinson and Bollinger, wanted one of them to do well so I could loophole Lynn's 72 as my vice captain. Not to be so I'm 244 with 6 (7 if you include the captain as 2) to come. Not very good but can be fixed, I'd like 550 at least from here.

Scratch that, rage traded Rimmington (for giving me a donut last week) to the great Sandhu.

Lets all sit back and watch Rimmington take 4/20 with a half century off 10 balls while Sandhu goes 0/100.

I want to find the positives, so here are my positives so far:
- Bollinger's 13 is on the bench
- Maddinson's 2 is on the bench
- I don't have Kallis
- I didn't captain Hussey
- I traded so that I would get price rises (It meant Finch -> Ferguson, which thankfully didn't cost too many points)

So 358 with Richardson, Laughlin, Ludeman. Terrible score but I'm still trying to plan ahead, so I feel like all is not lost. Can't see me improving on my 158 ranking though.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread

I think you and PB are looking ok this round. If you can get up to 500 for the round I reckon it will be a solid score given how many of the higher scorers from the previous 2 rounds spudded it up (ie. every player in my squad :'()
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: PowerBug on December 30, 2014, 10:00:58 PM
500 is a pretty big ask, but that's why I'm not overly worried. Only got one DGW player (Lynn) at the moment, I can see myself adding to that before they play on the 2nd. Will be loopholing those Scorchers and Thunder boys on the 1st. $65k in the bank helps also :)

451 for the round thanks to Ludeman (Would have been a great Captain but can not complain).

Although last round was a disaster lets aim to take FF league as high as we can We have a current League ranking of 47 so lets aim for Top 20

Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on January 01, 2015, 11:34:48 AM
So I've made a couple of trades to hopefully salvage something.

Hales -> Harris
Beer -> Duffield
Hodge -> Reardon

Team is now:

Harris, Reardon, Finch, White (Maddinson)
Wright, Turner (Kallis)
Ludeman (Hartley)
Behrendorff, Sandhu, Duffield, Rimmington (Bollinger)

Dunno who to captain, currently have it on Dorff because I reckon he could pick up a few wickets against the Thunder (also the reason why I've benched Kallis over Wright/Turner). Ludeman is vice atm, could put it on him. Duffield and Reardon my Heat players, might be a bit risky putting it on them even though they have the DGW.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: NoButYeah on January 01, 2015, 11:54:22 AM
373 thanks to Ludeman, only dropped 21 spots down to 195 so not too shabby.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Ringo on January 01, 2015, 11:55:03 AM
My team for this round

Klinger, Lynn, White, Voges (Maddison)
Faulkner, Kallis (Turner) - Still undecided about subbing Turner for Kallis.
Ludeman (Pierson)
Behrendorf, Richardson. Laughlin, Diffield (Rimmington)

If I leave Kallis on the field will probably VC him for tonight and then if poor will put C on Lynn.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Sweetness on January 01, 2015, 11:56:30 AM
Thinking I might field Pierson over Ludeman this round.
Has the DGW and he opened the batting last game (hopefully continues that now Burns is on Aus duty).

Also need to trade 1 of Lumb/Maddi.
Thinking Lumb is more unique so may keep him.

What trades should I do?

Klinger, Finch, Pieterson, Hodge (Maddinson)
Kallis, Turner (Henriques)
Pierson (Hartley)
Laughlin, Cummins, Rimmington, Lee (Bollinger)

Thinking Bollinger --> Duffield, and Hodge --> Reardon ($500 short of Lynn), then maybe Rimmington to Pattinson. Thoughts?

I'd go Lee to Duffield to get some cash.

Maybe Henriques to Christian who has the DGW this round.

Have just edited the post above, the BBL site was giving me wrong cash amounts ::), thinking about maybe getting Pattinson. Will Pieterson play this round? Was in commentry last night I think so should play. If I trade Lee I could get Lynn, but in the long term I tink I need to trade Dougie.

Post by: Ringo on January 01, 2015, 02:26:15 PM
You definitely have to trade one of Bollinger or Lee due to byes. Heat Prices have not increased yet so would do these trades and heat have the DGW this round

Not sure of exact cash but if you go Bollinger to Duffield
You will need 12k exactly to go Hodge to Lynn.

You could also go Lee to Duffield and make the Lynn trade with ease.

I have 11.5k be fored trades  >:(.

Maybe I could do Lee and Bollinger --> Duff and Zampa, which leaves me heaps of cash for Lynn. Only problem is Zampa would be my second Adelaide bowler, and they have the bye in a couple of weeks.

What's the consensus on Duffield? Bowled very well the other night but the ball won't swing as much as it did then every match and he got clobbered in the first match.

He does have the DGW but I can afford someone like Richardson who might be a better option?

I had him in rd 1, but not last match. Of his 39 runs conceded against the thunder, 18 were top edges over the keepers head from kallis, and another four was that clever shower from Morgan.

He's still a good option for the price rise.

Post by: Sweetness on January 01, 2015, 05:22:07 PM
Bringing in Lynn and Duffield.

The Heat batting lineup is made up of WK and AR's, so you can only really pick Lynn or Reardon.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread

But he's batted most games and has still managed to score fairly well, I think he's a fairly good chance to get game time.

From what I've seen, I'd be confident he'd get a bat in both games.

I thought it was just batsmen who copped the -20 for a duck?

Turner is showing as -8 for tonight's game yet he's an all-rounder?

Only bowlers don't get the -20.


Meanwhile I am slowly crying about not owning Kallis. Might try something fancy now, captain Freddy! (Well, Vice captain, I'm going to loophole this just incase)

And nige, you just need to trade one of you starting ARs to a non-playing one, who you captain doesn't matter.

I don't really wanna trade out Luke Wright, plus I've already used three trades this week after missing last week through my holiday.

But yeah, I had Kallis captain the past two weeks, decided the Scorchers would dominate backed in Dorff as captain and benched Kallis thinking the first week was a one-off and played Turner so copping his -8 and crying every time I see Kallis' 142 on the bench.  :'(
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: NoButYeah on January 01, 2015, 10:51:20 PM
So Dorf as vc didn't work too well, but who to captain, Lynn, Reardon or Cutting? Leaning towards Reardon just for a POD. Any ideas?
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: elephants on January 01, 2015, 10:57:55 PM
I'd go Lynn man, reckon he's the safest bet.

Personally I'm going Dan Christian even though he's done sfa so far this tournament.

Heat have also included Peter Forest for tonights match.  So this may force both Flintoff and Christian down the order, Forest may open and if that is the case Pierson will come in before Freddie but maybe after Christian.

That is very interesting...
The Ludeman vs Pierson choice may depend on it.

Also Forrest could then be a sneaky option instead of Reardon.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Sweetness on January 02, 2015, 09:26:50 AM
I think he is only in the squad.
My take it either Forrest or Milenko will miss out.

Then Gannon/Floros to be 12th.

I put the VC on Kallis so gladly taking his score - Not a lot of high scores from Heat game 1 Apart from Christian, Forrest and Pierson but they still another 70 next game to get to Kallis's score.

Great game last night Bailey showed why he should be in T20 side.

Ludeman better fire on Sunday as it will hurt with Piersons 77 on pine,

BTW still have not passed last weeks score yet not far off though, (451 last weeks score and on 403 atm)

Nah, I'm taking the cake here. A whopping 297.

Kallis, who just about got half that score on his own, on my bench.

Wright and Reardon were my only two above 50, Dorff only above 50 because he was my captain.

So, my team currently is:

Harris, Reardon, Finch, White (Maddinson)
Wright, Turner (Kallis)
Ludeman (Hartley)
Behrendorff (c), Duffield, Bollinger, Rimmington (Sandhu)

Perth have the DGW and the Thunder have the bye.

Harris, Turner and Dorff are decent captaincy options with the DGW since Harris usually opens, Turner usually gets a bat and bowl and Dorff gets a fair few wickets and is economical, not to mention all three usually get a catch in the field.

Not sure who to trade out, I've only got 9,200 as far as salary goes.

I'm thinking Duffield and Rimmington are options to trade out and I'm starting to question whether Finch is worth the price with scores of 20, 49, 38 and 20.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: PowerBug on January 05, 2015, 01:09:03 PM

I'm 16th at the moment and am also punting Rimmington.
A bowler that might only bowl 2 overs is useless. Have a look at bringing in Tye or Dixon for their DGW this round.
Keep Duffield as he has another DGW in a couple rounds.

Finch to Klinger would be a handy trade.

I don't have the big Dorff, if I did choose him over Yasir at the start of the season is be ~200 points and $30k better off haha. It's either him or Marcus Harris, who I don't own yet but might depending on whether Maddinson spuds tonight.

Yeah i got in Harris Turner and Behrendorff for spud cummins.. Was thinking Harris but he is pretty average and even making his quick 20s this year has surpirsed me. Scorchers at the Waca too should be good for Behrendorf. Yeahh wish i started with him also.. i made the mistake of having hogg in my side :/

Toughie.... Voges is in Horrible form.. And Carberry has been a spud all tournament... except that good 10 balls he made to get him from like 25-55.

Its a real tough one. Maybe voges because he will bat before carbs?

Tough one and there's no guarantee either will do well even with the DGW.

I'm surprised with Voges poor form. I wanted to pick Voges for their DGW in Rd.2 but other issues meant I couldn't bring him in. Turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

Better chance of picking up points if he decides to bowl himself (super unlikely now that Hogga's returning) or gets a catch/runout.

Also decided to turn Maddinson (one good game) into Forrest despite all the shower I've given him (two good games, opening). It leaves me with like 17k in cash and also prepares me for the Heat DGW in two weeks.

Parked Reardon on bat bench now.

Got 5 Scorchers now for their DGW - Klinger, Harris, Turner, Dorff (c) and Tye.

If Dorf snags 2-3 wickets a game + econo bonus would be real handy.

Gonna decide between Klinger (red) and Harris (blue) first, whichever wins, goes on to contest for captaincy against Dorff (red).

Edit: sometimesredsometimesblue thinks I should pick Klinger as captain, but my head says Harris and heart says Dorff, flower.  :(

Wade (Hartley)
Beherendorff, Richardson, Laughlin, Zampa (Duffield).

I think I'll go dorff captain, got no idea who to bench out of Lynn, Bailey, Harris x 2, Voyes x 2 and Finch. Leaning towards Finch, but might go Bailey due to him batting at 5.

Got $900, 3 trades remaining. Might go Wade to Whiteman, think he's my only real weakness. Thoughts?

I'd probably keep the Strikers you have, since they have the DGW in the same week when the Scorchers have the bye.

You've got 4 Scorchers for this week, that should be fine.

Pierson (Hartley)
Laughlin, Mennie, Duffield, Rimmington (Cummins)
26k in the kitty.

Yeah, I got no idea what to do. Thinking of trading Rimmington, maybe to Tye with the DGW? Maybe Dixon, is he a good option? Cheap and has the DGW. Maybe I could trade Finch. Looks like he's losing cash big time, and Harris is 18k less than him and will most likely score more.

That would leave me with 43k left over  :o

50 for KP though!  8)

Really hope Maxi puts together a decent innings tonight, he's due.  :)

24 off 13 isn't bad form Maxi, considering Bear got the same off 30.

Would have been good if he got more though. Annoying that he got out the same way as KP. Hopefully Triffitt and Faulks can see us home.

Nah super over runs/wickets dont count unfortunately, neither do they with sportsbet, don't think they are counted as stats at all actually.

Chose to start Wright over Henriques, bad choice. I couldn't loophole them either obviously with both of them playing tonight. I guess in hindsight what I could have done is traded one so I could loophole the other, but too much effort lol. -20 off 1 player, not the best start.

Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Adamant on January 06, 2015, 01:54:30 PM
So after Wright getting -20 I decided to go a bit #yolo with my trades.

Lynn > Carberry
Christian > Bresnan
Paris > Tye

Leaves me with 6 Scorchers: Klinger (c), Carberry, Harris, Turner, Arafat and Tye.

Don't really like Bresnan but had to trade Christian to someone 90k or under to be able to afford to bring in Tye. Hobart do have the DGW next round though.

Also backing in Finch over Lynn despite Brisbane having the DGW in a couple of rounds so he better repay the faith. :P
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Rusty00 on January 06, 2015, 02:48:44 PM
So with Hogg returning to the Scorchers side tonight, does that put Turner's spot in jeopardy? I assume Agar is available for selection given he is not in the Test team?
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: PowerBug on January 06, 2015, 03:42:14 PM
Yep, I reckon Turner is gone. purely because they have to either play or 12th man Cam Bancroft (Batsman) tonight. Langer hinted Hogg and Agar will both play, Dorff and Arafat have to play right?

Adam Voges (c), Ashton Agar, Yasir Arafat, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Michael Carberry, Matthew Dixon, Marcus Harris, Brad Hogg, Michael Klinger, James Muirhead, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Sam Whiteman.
There's a 14 man squad, from that I see the following:

Klinger
Harris
Carberry
Voges
Bancroft
Whiteman
Agar
Tye
Hogg
Arafat
Behrendorff

Muirhead, Turner, Dixon miss for me. Another option COULD be Turner in for Tye, but since Voges bowls spin, Turner/Bancroft will battle it for the final spot. Also Tye vs Dixon for that 3rd seamer spot. Muirhead shouldn't make the XI.

Also this for SA residents:
Adelaide Strikers @StrikersBBL
Ignore your TV guide, @tensporttv have let us know they will broadcast @StrikersBBL v @ScorchersBBL live into Adelaide from 6.30pm tonight.

YAY

He's been batting at 5 or 6 I think so I'd hope/think not. However certainly will bowl less overs.

Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on January 06, 2015, 04:16:30 PM
I think Turner's safe because he's an AR and bats 5/6, might bowl less now though. I think I'll trade him after this week though to be safe.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Rusty00 on January 06, 2015, 04:22:23 PM
Everyone agrees he will bowl less, which means he's in the team mainly for his batting, which has been showerhouse so far. My worry is like PB has predicted they will bring in another batsman for him in Bancroft :-\
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on January 06, 2015, 04:40:38 PM
Fair point. And I reckon they clearly prefer Agar to Turner, even though Turner bats higher and is a better spinner (imo), but Agar's big hitting sees him elevated in the order from time to time.

Oh well, guess I'll just have to trade him out next week and cop the donut this week.
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on January 06, 2015, 05:33:12 PM
Adelaide Strikers (13-man squad): Johan Botha (c), Jono Dean, Seb Gotch, Travis Head, Hamish Kingston, Ben Laughlin, Tim Ludeman, Kane Richardson, Alex Ross, Craig Simmons, Shaun Tait, Ryan ten Doeschate, Adam Zampa.

Perth Scorchers (14-man squad): Adam Voges (c), Ashton Agar, Yasir Arafat, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Michael Carberry, Matthew Dixon, Marcus Harris, Brad Hogg, Michael Klinger, James Muirhead, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Sam Whiteman.



Gotch and Kingston should miss for the Strikers.

If Agar's fine to play then Muirhead and Bancroft probably miss and assuming Hogg plays (which is likely), then it probably will be Turner to miss.  :-\

Yup. Highly doubt Turner will bowl, maybe one over to open. Thought about trading him to Agar, but can't be stuffed. traded laughlin to tye for this round, will reverse it next round.

Its a tough one, go with Klinger with a 20 run head start of Lynn or Finch. Dont really like Lynn as he has to face a good scorcher bowling attack.

If you guys could bat you'd be dominating the comp! I personally don't understand why Turner is still in the side as even before last night he didn't bowl that much and he's not a good batsman at all. I guess with limited squads though every team will have a spud or two in there ;)

Mennie vs Duffield, dunno who to start!
I'd lean towards Duffield I reckon.
Same. Perth appears to be more bowler friendly conditions than Hobart.

Yeah true, plus Duffield will probably bowl at Carberry so he's a huge chance for a wicket there. :p

Shakib's one of the best allrounders in the world, 3rd in ODIs and Tests, 2nd in T20s.

Played really well for the Strikers last Big Bash, should do well again I reckon.

Stokes and Shakib looking to be two good additions.

These international guys can get hyped up on their stats because they've played against poor opposition. Shakib isn't any better than average.

Also, has Doherty ever spun a ball?

You are lucky we are an hour delay and it is crap.

The super over the other night went to add break after 3 balls and showed seven adds plus 3 promos and still came back for 4th ball.

reply I got from Channel 10 and complained and you can laugh at this if you like

We prefer to keep all the T20 on the one channel so as to not confuse fans by putting on other digital channels.

With Channel 10 now having the v8's will be interesting there as well.

Always liked Ahmed. It's unlikely, but I'd like to see him play for Australia. However, given the other spin options and the fact he's 33 next month his chances are pretty slim.

Edit: I just checked, he has. I had totally forgotten.

Average of 32 in first class is a bit high but wouldn't be the worst option.

They have 3 channels that nobody watches regularly anyway I can't understand that if people watch the project so much why can't they put that on a different channel. If they don't want to show Big Bash on ONE in most states. From what I've heard 10 are using it as a drawing card putting it on their main channel. Currently the HopmanCup and Brisbane international are on 7 Mate and 7TWO. No wonder why Seven get more ratings than the other free to air channels cause everything is live and they use all 3 channels to the best of their ability, unlike 10 who show Family Fued on 3 different channels at the same time and it's even the same @$&! Episode

If the Big Bash Final isn't live... put it back on Fox even though I don't have Foxtel

I got 589. Should have got more though, but Harris and Klinger failed me, and I started Forrest over Reardon which didn't help.

Turner's gone for Stokes this week and then I've got two other trades. Don't have any Hurricanes, so I've got work out what the hell to do, but they seem to be struggling and don't have too many decent options. Bailey the only one I can think of, maybe Boyce as well.

Another good score mate, will be interesting to see your ranking now ;)

Cheers mate :)
743, pretty solid considering Christian donut, Harris misfiring and Arafats poor 2nd game.

None of the Canes scream "pick me" for next week.
Will have a look at Bailey/Boyce/Bresnan.

Hurt a ligament in his thumb.
Pretty sure he is set to play their next game so cant be too bad.

109 for Carberry, anyone have him?  :o

If they have Carberry they're no threat in the rankings :p

Well I'm ranked 39th and have him. Although I only just brought him in this week (for Lynn, which turned out great). :D

Haha obviously doesn't count if you just brought him in

Dunk and Paine maybe? Boyce good option too. Bailey bats too low I reckon.

"The Hobart Hurricanes have suffered a double injury blow ahead of their must-win match against the Sydney Thunder on Friday night with two key batsmen ruled out due to injury.
Vice-Captain Tim Paine (broken toe) and middle order batsman Travis Birt (strained hamstring) will both miss the match to be played at Spotless Stadium in Sydney."

676, looks decent. My last minute change of heart to start finch over bailey cost me 50 points, wright was bad but a lot had him, happy with everyone else. Very happy with this weeks addition of tye, and making dorf captain.

Very interested in what their XI looks like now.
Bailey/Wells/Malik to open?

If Malik gets 2-3 overs he could be worth the huge price.

I think Michael Hill may even be a chance to come in, he used to open for Victoria/Renegades iirc.

I didn't even know Malik was still playing for the Hurricanes, may have to consider him, but I don't think there's gonna be much point with Kallis/Stokes as my two allrounders.

Bresnan

Boyce
Hilfenhaus

Bailey's expected omission's from Hobart's Rd 7 game is really annoying.

Now to avoid a donut in my batsmen in Rd.7 I'm probably going to have keep Dunk instead of bringing in Ludeman's DGW.

Alternatively should I ignore Bailey for this round's DGW and take a punt on Michael Hill or a non-DGW player such as Mr. Cricket ???

Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on January 09, 2015, 10:17:26 AM
Um, flower. So the plan was to trade in Ben Stokes for Ashton Turner, but I've got Wright and Kallis already. I feel like to bring Stokes in, I'll have to trade one out and downgrade them to SOK or somebody like that.

Strikers have the DGW next week after their bye this week, so I think I should keep Ludeman my only Striker and maybe get Dunk in for the Canes DGW.

The problem now is that next week two team have byes (Stars and Scorchers) and then again in the last week (Hurricanes and Heat).

Team is:
Klinger, Harris, Reardon, Forrest, White
Wright, Turner, Kallis
Ludeman, Hartley
Behrendorff, Tye, Duffield, Bollinger, Sandhu

So I'm thinking:
Turner -> Stokes
Kallis -> SOK (could potentially wait a week for this trade but that means I'll have to decide which two of Wright/Stokes/Kallis to play)
Klinger/Harris -> Bailey/Hill or Duffield/Dougie -> Boyce
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on January 09, 2015, 10:23:49 AM
Ended up doing Turner -> Stokes, Kallis -> SOK and Duffield -> Hilfy.

I'd be keeping Kallis over Wright if you really want to trade one of them out. Same price, Kallis averaging more than Wright and Kallis also doesn't have anymore bye weeks coming up whereas Wright does :)

Renegades play their Rd.7 game Tuesday 13 January, Australia's first ODI is Friday 16 January.

You'd think he would still play the Rd.7 game, but not sure whether they will pull all the Australian guys out of the BBL earlier or not ???

Post by: Adamant on January 09, 2015, 01:30:28 PM
Alright thanks guys. So basically I can miss out on going Ludeman > Dunk this week and play Whiteman instead, so I have an extra trade to use on Finch in preparation for next round (will have a donut even after trades if Finch misses).

Or I might just keep my original trades and take a punt on Finchy playing next round. :-\
Title: Re: BBL|04 Fantasy and Discussion Thread
Post by: Nige on January 09, 2015, 01:32:41 PM
I reckon just get rid of Finchy. He's not playing well and considering we're not certain on his availability, they're two fairly good reasons

Ludeman > Dunk

Richo > Hilfy for me

last trade saved to loophole hussey or cummins

Question is do i loophole both with only one trade available so i can only bring one onto the ground if they go big, or do I bring Cummins onto the ground and just bench Duffield and loophole Huss

Thunder squad:

Aiden Blizzard
Mark Cosgrove
Pat Cummins
Chris Hartley
Nathan Hauritz
Dan Hughes
Jacques Kallis
Josh Lalor
Ian Moran
Jason Roy
Gurinder Sandhu
Chris Tremain

Roy's an English T20 international brought in to replace Eoin Morgan so you'd think he'd play.

Still stumped on whether to trade Finch or not. If I do trade him then I have to miss out on Dunk who I rate as the safest captain option this round easily. But If I hold him and he doesn't play next round due to Australian duties then I cop a donut.

Who do we think scores more over the next two rounds?

This round:                     Next round:
Dunk x2 + Finch       &     Dunk + Finch 0*

This round:                     Next round:
Whiteman + Lynn     &     Ludeman x2 + M. Hussey

So Dunk x 3 + Finch

Would imagine

dunk x3 = 150 finch = 60

whiteman = 25 Lynn = 40 ludeman = 100 hussey = 60

They usually put the captain first, but Bailey opening is a real possibility.

Does that mean Bailey opens? Or they always put the capt first?

Always out captain first.

If Bailey opens I'll go him over Dunk I reckon.
Surely if Finch plays this Sat then Bailey will play Sunday lunch game before ODI duties...

Bailey won't open and he will almost certainly play the 2nd game of the DGW. My problem is it's doubtful he'll play Rd.7 game (1 day before Aussie ODI)

Oh yeah if he gets picked of the ODI no chance he plays the day before.
Dunk looking likely if Baileys not opening.

Yeah, conditions played a part, the fact the overs were cut down probably also contributed.

Malik bowled 3 though.

I assume Malik bowled over the other 2 spinners because he relies less on gripping the ball as he gets less turn maybe.

Now the bloke in first place, is that former player Trent Coplenad by any chance? That's not just just a random question, because last season he came 10th, and is apparently a huge fantasy nut, and is doing BBL Fantasy again this season

Don't think it is.
Thought his team name was "Copes Collosals". He writes a blog for the 6ers website and from what I gather he wasn't doing that well this year.
He smashed it in BBL03 though.

I'll trade both Klinger and Harris and bench White who has the DGW the week after.

Wright will move to the bench.

Trade out one of Behrendorff or Tye, probably Tye and then just bench Dorff.

Been a joke they can't play it live.

Next weeks games are all half an hour later too, due to The Project going from 30mins to 1 hour long.

Rimmers knocked the stumps with his arm, don't think ball ever even hit them. Or if it did, it was after he knocked them himself.

Yeah, from what Cameron White said afterwards, it sounded like the ball missed the stumps.

Out: Hussey, Behrendorf, Dunk
In: Simmonds, Pierson, Richardson.

Need to trade in some Strikers or Heat players (but the Heat are shower so will just get Strikers I reckon). Two batsmen and a bowler. Thinking Kane Richardson and Craig Simmons, but not sure who the third player should be. Was thinking Jono Dean, but he must be listed as an allrounder because he's not listed as a batsman. Means I have to pick Alex Ross or Travis Head, thinking the latter because he bats higher.

Well the week I started Forrest, Reardon did well and the week I started Reardon, Forrest did well. So starting both means they'll both probably fail.

Also got Stokes and SOK (Wright benched for his bye)

Ludeman as C.

Hilfy, Sandhu, Richo and Douglas.

I got him last week. hard to bring in high scoring players now with these price rises.. and sometimes you need to trade them out as they have a bye.. then cant afford to get them back in. Effing byes and dgw dont go well with price fluctuations.

So with Hussey, Klinger and Finch all losing bulk cash makes trading alot harder.
Sure does. I can still afford my trades this round ($2,000 left ;)) but I'm not going to be able to afford anyone decent next round.

Have gone:
Dunk > Ludeman
Behrendorf > Richardson
Paris > Zampa

:o ;D :( >:( 8)

Means him and Richo will play tonight but Richo won't play the Strikers second game of the round. That means I'll probably have to reverse my trades and either Tait or Zampa instead of Richo.

Really happy for Sandhu though!  ;D

Carberry > Simmons
Turner > Botha
Tye > Laughlin

Need to offset the Finch donut by having as many DGW players as possible this round. Now have 5 in total: Lynn, Simmons, Botha, Laughlin and Duffield. Spewing that Richo is only playing the first round. :(

Backing in Botha with the DGW over Stokes at this stage. Although that could still change.

I was really happy to be trading in Richo, but good on him.

I kinda hope both get to play for Australia now though or it's gonna annoy me even more that they're like not available for their BBL teams and not being used.

Hey guys, looking to trade Turner, wondering who to trade him to. So far the options are, Stokes, Dean, Abbott and Botha. Dean and Botha both have the DGW, so thinking they're the best 2.

Also, who should I play out of Kallis, Henriques and who I trade in?

Cheers guys.

Well, if you trade in a DGW player, you should probably play them.

Not sure I'd bring in Abbott if you already have Henriques.

Dean doesn't really bowl, so you'd be relying on his batting and Botha doesn't always bat either, but gives you an extra DGW player if you want that, otherwise I'd go Stokes who's fairly cheap for what he can produce.

True.
Essentially 4 teams left have a DGW.

Stars - Can't trade in as have the bye
Thunder - Silly to trade in now since the game will likely be abandoned.
Strikers - Not even a DGW if tonight doesn't play
Heat - Have a bye next round so can't load up (plus they suck)

Three options with my trades.

Voges -> Lumb to cover the Hussey donut (lol, oops).

Dorff -> any bowler to replace Mennie if he doesn't play or Duffield if he isn't called up.

Bit if a confusing one but I risk two donuts in the bowlers if I trade to cover Huss but I also might not have any donuts in the bowlers if Mennie and Duffield get up :s

My assumption is that Duffield was dropped and given the Heat bowlers did ok last night (admittedly on a pitch that was difficult to bat on) it's hard to see him coming back into the side unless one of the bowlers from last night misses with injury.

You might not think much of him, but he's averaged the same as Laughlin so far and is cheaper so people were jumping on him for the DGW. Although the rain stuffed that around a bit.

Yeah thats true, sucks a lot because the last thing I wanna do is trade Dorff but its probably better than trading Voges... maybe

Simple.. Pretty sure he is a top 3 ranked bowler according to points. Plus he is cheap. Seems silly not to have him?

Ok, after I took the VC off Ludeman and gave it Lynn ::) thoughts on who should make Captain.

Maddo
Binga
Hill
Wells
Boyce

Unfortunately (as much as I would like it to be) "none of the above" is not an option :P :'(

Leaning towards Binga at the moment

Apparently if your late on the ball and it passes you then deviates off the wicket when you are miles off it.. Then it's out. Even when they reviewed it. Gave him out...

Got Reardon and Forrest in the field to get me catches/runouts and Hilfy to potentially have a bat.

You've got Lynn in the field for catches/runouts and Shoaib to bat.

Assuming Reardon/Lynn/Forrest don't get catches, this game pretty hinges on Shoaib scoring for you.

Nah, you've won. Malik's got the strike rate bonus which has you easily ahead. Unless he gets out and Hilf keeps batting, you've won.

The way hilfy is going but... He will also get strike rate bonus... Forrest dropped hilfy before.. Would of been interesting to see if you'd rather him catch or not, probz a good thing now.

Didn't think it was Forrest out there who dropped it, may have been wrong though.

As long as Malik's in, I'm stuffed. Although Forrest or Reardon catching him would help.

Yeah, I think it goes to unlimited trades come finals.



Made three trades this week:

Reardon -> KP
Forrest -> Blizzard
Sandhu -> Boland

All three traded in players have the DGW.

Traded out Sandhu assuming he won't play being with the Aussie team and Boland has the DGW and is probably somebody I can keep come finals anyway.

Dillemas.

I have these guy as prospect trades
Dunk     But hartley as cover with gmw?
Lynn     must be traded probably to White
Malik.. Easy one to Kallis
Sanhu? Hold or trade?

Other batters in side, Maddinson, Head, Harris. Simmonds,

Other Bowlers. zampa, Richardson, Behrendorff and Duffield.


Do i go Lynn, Malik and Dunk to White, Kallis and TRiffit? and risk Sanhu donut?

Or do i field Hartley with dgw, bench dunk. Then go lynn- White Malik to Kallis- then Sanhu to someone? Cant afford boland but..

Second option. Sandhu isn't named for tomorrow so you'll be saving a donut and Hartley could match Triffitt anyway.

Looking at that, one of McKay/Feldman and Keath miss I think.

Triffitt's been good keeping and Handscomb is just as good a fielder as he is fielder (similar scenario to the Hurricanes having Dunk/Paine) and will serve as a specialist batsman. I think Quiney will come in and Keath will be pushed out.

There's actually debate over that Josh Lalor catch? Yes the laws were changed a few years back, but as long as the first contact is within the field of play, then further contact can be made even if they jump from a position outside the field of play.

and it was a brilliant catch

So you can stand on the fence to catch  the ball aslong as you land in the field of play? It was 6 everyday

no cos first contact has to be made with the player still in play, which he was. he can't stand on the other side of the rope and jump back in

the catch was no different to any other

to go on with it a bit imagine it was Sandilands who took the catch, but didn't juggle it, he just took it with his feet in play and he stretched back like a metre or something. so, he took the catch a metre over the boundary, but with his feet still in play. it's the same principle, a clear catch

I have white in my fantasy side so not out every day... Hahahha. But seriously.. They probably need to further clarify the rule. Because it's kind of something that hasn't happened yet but was eventually going to. I really don't know if it should of been out or not. But they need to be 100% sure in future. So come up with a rule which says yes that's fine.. Or no you can only leave field of play once or whatever....

But as he jumped from outside of the boundary until he touched down inside the line he should have been considered out of bands

That was the bit that changed recently. The first contact has to be from within (Or jumping from within) the field of play. The second contact can be what Lalor did, jump from outside the rope and make contact in the air. Previously ALL contact had to start from within the field of play.

Okay, I was thinking... Australia need another batsman because Mitch Marsh and Pup are injured and Bailey is suspended, leaves me wondering who they'll pick. I assume they'll go somebody with BBL form... so blokes like White, Smarsh and Lynn must be in the frame? The first two may affect teams.
