SC BBL – Some Players To Consider

Written by Motts on December 5 2019

Nathan Scoble has done the work so you don’t need to. Let’s hear it for Nath!

As the BBL 19 T20 League is only two weeks away from today, research has already begun in an attempt to find the best players suitable for your ever changing squad!

With multiple tournaments around the world in the works itโ€™s evident to see who has been firing and for which side!

The bottom table represents statistics from the MSL (Mzansi Super League). The players below are the ones who have contracts with their respective BBL teams.

The Big Bash starts on the 17th of December, the eliminator of the MSL is on the 14th of December, whilst the final is on the same starting day as the BBL, the 17th of December, so keep an eye on the results as you may get stuck with a player in your squad who might not actually be in the country and able to represent their given BBL side!

The players from the team that loses the eliminator, has obviously a higher chance of being selected to play, whilst the teams that make the final will have a reduced chance of being available for the start of round 1 game week for the BBL (which in my honest opinion would be highly unlikely to play if they did play in the final / win the elimator).
