Nige & I have done our predicted best XI's for the upcoming season. PB may do so too if he has the time. You can also find the updated squads in that spreadsheet as well.


Some notes from my end

Adelaide - Head will miss with AU commitments, everyone should slide up a spot & likely Matt Short will come in at 6.

Brisbane - N/A

Hurricanes - Paine will miss with AU commitments. Expect Wade to open alongside Short & Doran (at present) to come in down the order. The Canes did also use Milenko as a straight bat last season so that is also possible.

Renegades - Who opens alongside Ludeman with both openers gone with AU commitments? Money is on Bear but it leaves a weakened batting lineup behind it. Expect lesser lights such as Harvey, Webster & Sutherland to play some part as the season starts. Tremain should also miss with AU commitments but they're well stocked in that regard. Boyce will come in if they want 2 spinners, Mennie if they want a seamer.

Stars - Handscomb will miss with AU duties so expect Dunk to take the gloves. The Stars are in a good spot when it comes to flexibility, as Handscomb's replacement could be anyone from Worrall (Gotch going up to 6), Dean (Stoinis going down to 6 & Dean opening) to even Evan Gulbis. Hard to make a call there.

Scorchers - Absolutely stacked squad. Both Marsh brothers should miss & their lineup could be one of a number of options. Based on what happened last season it'll be either Whiteman or Willey opening with Klinger, with the other being somewhere in the 6-8 region. Bancroft will come straight back into #3 on his return (Dec 30th). The fact that Paris & Matt Kelly don't make this XI is bonkers. Qadir will also be handy for pitches such as Etihad.

Sixers - Lyon replaced by likely Pope. Also feel the Sixers batting depth is a touch weak, so I'd expect a Jordan Silk re-signing in the next few days to bat 5 ahead of Edwards.

Thunder - Cummins & Khawaja will miss with the test team. Patterson will open alongisde Watson with Ryan Gibson the likely replacement at 6. Although Sangha may be a shout if Watto has had enough of Green being a flat out meme. Ahmed will come in for Cummins, with everyone shifting one spot up the order with Ahmed at 11.

I echo a lot of what Coop said and I'll probably go into more details in the coming days with my own thoughts so stay tuned.

Just started to consider the draw and Scorchers and Heat have the double in Rd 1. Lynn C probably a certainty for me.

My team as it stands at the moment.  Reserves may change though to balance.

Scorchers are really tough to pick, feel like one of Tye, NCN, Dorf and Richardson could miss with Willey and MMarsh in the team, which is crazy considering they've all played for the national side. On paper it should be Richo but they really like his pace.

Feel like Qadir won't get many chances if Agar is available. Turner has started to bowl so he is the 2nd spin option

Whiteman is really out of favour so I think Inglis will keep until Bancroft returns

Will be one top line batsman short for the two games before Bancroft is back (Assuming Smarsh stays in the Aus XI :) )

My stab and a game 1 XI is below:

Michael    KLINGER
David    WILLEY
Hilton   CARTWRIGHT
Mitch    MARSH
Ashton    TURNER
Ashton    AGAR
Nathan   COULTER-NILE
Josh         INGLIS (wk)
Jhye          RICHARDSON
Andrew    TYE
Jason   BEHRENDORFF

Ridiculous bowling fire power, 6 Front liners plus Marsh and Turner (Cartwright bowled 1 over last season so he doesn't count)
Agar at 6 might seem a bit weak but there isn't another batsman available. Will look so much stronger come the 3rd game when Bancroft replaces Inglis

Would love to see Voges throw NCN in as an opener like the Gades did with Narine.

Best XI would be:

Michael    KLINGER
Shaun    MARSH
Hilton   CARTWRIGHT
Mitch    MARSH
Ashton    TURNER
Cameron    BANCROFT(wk)
David    WILLEY
Ashton    AGAR
Nathan   COULTER-NILE
Andrew    TYE
Jason   BEHRENDORFF

Klinger/Cartwright out for Richardson if they wanted more bowling firepower.

Maddog got his arm broken by Jhye today so rip the messiah.

Means that one of Travis Dean or Jonathan Merlo probably comes in, maybe Evan Gulbis.

Dean's obviously a specialist batsman, whereas Merlo is an allrounder who can bowl pace.
