    1. Some great selections but I’m a bit worried about your bench depth and plans for RD2 as the Heat have the bye.

      An option could be to trade M Stoinis to M Ur Rahman thus saving approximately 130,000. This can be used to upgrade Sutherland to S Lamichhane which only costs 20,000 thus leaving you with 110,000 left. The remaining 110,000 could be used to trade Bryant and Harvey to N Coulter Nile and C Ferguson.

      This would give you 6 double game players for Rd1 (Lynn, McCullum, Willey, Coulter Nile, Behrendorff, Ur Rahman) and still 3 heat players but it will make it easier to trade them as you don’t have 3 in the 1 position.

      1. Gonna have to disagree with you here Adam. With the way the format works you make 3 trades every week so Lynn, McCullum and Bryant isn’t excessive, with Bryant a great cheap option if he plays. Also as there are no emergencies you need 2 non-playing options to loophole which can be extremely handy due to the large variance in scores.

  2. Currently running with a line up consisting of:

    Bat: C Lynn, J Denly, J Archer, N Coulter-Nile, B McCullum, (M Henriques, C Ferguson)

    WK: B McDermott, (B Dunk)

    Bowl: R Khan, S Watson, J Behrendorff, U Qadir, M Ur Rahman, (J Botha, S Lamichhane)

    R Khan, J Behrendorff, U Qadir, M Ur Rahman, S Lamichhane, B McCullum, B McDermott, B Dunk, M Henriques and J Denly have and will be the mainstays in all iterations with the sextet of Lynn, Coulter-Nile, Ferguson, Archer, Watson and Botha subject to change.

      1. Thanks. Reasoning behind Denly is he performed very well last season with the bat and he should get more of a bowl with Johan Botha moving to the Hurricanes. In T20 matches in 2018 Denly has taken 21 wickets from 15 innings in 29 matches with an economy rate of 7.58 and 3 3 wicket hauls. Also he has scored 878 runs from 27 innings in T20 matches in 2018 with a strike rate of 135.07 and approximately 1/4 of the matches he has scored 50+.

        In regards to Qadir he has been selected largely due to their double first up, a pod selection and he boasts an economy rate below 6 in his T20 career. He looks to be the main spinner throughout the BBL season for the Scorchers as I assume Agar will leave the squad due to international duties at some stage.

    Thank you.

    1. A couple of good pod selections in Buttler, Agar and Sams. An option could be White out for McCullum thus increasing your remaining salary from approximately 20,000 to 50,000 to allow Harvey and Swepson to be traded to Dunk and Behrendorff.

  4. Still a first draft but thought I’d say my justifications as well

    Lynn – DGW straight up no brainer
    A. Agar – If he plays is a lock as he generally bowls 4 overs and gets a slog with the bat
    Harris – Opens for the Renegades – finished last season well and just got a 250* in the shield
    McCullum – DGW and is massively underpriced
    Klinger – missed all of last season – opens – DGW – one of my first picked
    Henriques – cheap and can still perform
    Bryant – partially a placeholder but if he gets in the team he is a lock

    Carey – Strikers DGW in the 2nd week and had a massive last season – Will most likely turn into Mcdermott then Buttler in week 3 and 4
    Peirson – not sure on this spot currently but would be a solid loophole and he can score alright

    Rashid – First picked he is a gun
    Archer – extremely economical bowler and sometimes gets a slog
    Christian – solid all rounder and Gades dont have many options currently
    Coulter Nile – great form in the T20I’s so far and is cheap due to missing games
    Cartwirght – super cheap with a DGW and should bat high in the order
    Lamichane – not actually sure on him but heard he was a lock on the podcast so want to at least see what he can do
    Edwards – placeholder for now

    with 29k spare

    1. Great team. Love the pod selections of M Harris, M Klinger and D Christian. An option could be to trade Pierson to Ludeman allowing Cartwright to be upgraded to J Behrendorff.

  5. Batters – Lynn, Carey, Willey, Neser , McCullum

    Bench – Klinger, Heazlett

    W/K – Dunk
    Handscomb

    Bowlers – Khan , Archer, Beherndorff, Coulter – Nile, Henriques

    Bench – Boyce, S. Lamichane

    1. Great team and hard to fault most of your selections. The only selections I would consider changing are M Neser and S Heazlett. M Neser isn’t an economical bowler and doesn’t make enough runs therefore he is largely dependent on taking wickets.

      An option could be trading Neser to Ingram which would set you up for the strikers double week and would allow Ingram to benched in Round 1 allowing Klinger to be fielded for his double. This would free up approximately 36,000 thus allowing Heazlett to be traded to M Ur Rahman/ J Botha via M Henriques.

      Other than that a great setup and selections and good luck for the upcoming season.

  6. Thanks Adam for your sound advice and words of encouragement.

    Yeah with Neser I am probably a bit blinkered as he performed well for me in a couple rounds last year when I traded him in with the Strikers playing twice. Will take on board your feedback.

    1. That’s fine. He’s not a bad option but there are half a dozen strikers I would priortize over Neser who in no particular order are Khan, Carey, Head, Stanlake, Laughlin and Ingram. Both Laughlin and Stanlake are cheaper than Neser and Laughlin has a wide arsenal of deliveries and holds the record as the leading wicket taker in bbl history whereas Stanlake has averaged 65.93 SC points in 14 T20 internationals in 2018.

  7. Hey guys first time coach in need of some feedback.
    Lynn, root. Butler. Lehman. Harris- ferguson Bryant

    Handscomb Ludeman

    Tye Stoinis khan archer Pattinson- j Edwards Sutherland

    What’s the price change in bbl like? Can a players value vary greatly over 3 rounds. Some talk above on the loophole, does your lowest scoring bench player step in? Glad I found this site and thanks for any help

  8. Hey Dan you need to bring in more Scorchers and Heat players into your starting squad as they both play 2 games in Round 1 and a couple of strikers players that play twice in Round 2 so double points available.
    Root to McCullum freeing up cash and another Scorcher in the bowlers like Berendorff or Coulter – Nile for Stoinis who I think is overpriced and then Handscomb upgraded to Alex Carey.

    1. Thanks mate, yeah team looks alot stronger now. Just need to sit back and see who else signs on before the start. Any help with price info and vc lopp

      1. Price changes happen every week so they can be pretty volatile yeah, especially at the start when it’s easy for a batter only to give a very low score. No emergencies in this so you need 2 non playing in one line to loophole as you get the lowest score.

    1. Great setup and pretty hard to fault. Only change could be Carey to Willey as you will be able to trade Lynn to Carey in round 2 due to Brisbane’s Double Bye and Adelaide’s double game week.

      Great selections and structure all across and you have established some superb bench depth. Who do you plan to bring in for the Heat players in RD2.

    1. Sounds like a solid plan which I assume would then involve trading 3 of your Strikers to Short, McDermott and G Bailey/ J Botha for example to capitalise on Hobart’s double and Adelaide’s bye whilst sustaining a nice core of players.

    1. Don’t think Lehmann will be at 4 as I believe he batted as low as 7 or 8 during last season although I think he has had a solid shield since then.
