7 Winners In 7 Days – Matty Yap (BBL03)

Written by Schwarzwalder on December 5 2018


Damion Maher (@Damion23) has rounded up seven previous winners of BBL Fantasy & SuperCoach BBL and asked them some insightful questions ahead of BBL08.

Matty Yap won BBL03 Fantasy & here is what he had to say…

1. What is your team name and where can people follow you if you have twitter?

I combined my initials with the stars, hence MYstars. It was the most stupid thing I could come up with at the time.

2. What was the keys to your success and any advice to new players?

Success is a whole lot of luck, but I tried to maximise the amount of double game week players and try to pick as many players who both bat and bowl.

3. Who is the must have player and why?

Haven’t done my research enough to pick a must have. But players like Watto who bat and bowl generally are locks.

4. Will you have more bowlers or batsmen in your side considering the all-rounder changes?

Haven’t checked out the new rules but I generally like bowlers. More consistent.

5. Two part question, will you have D’Arcy Short in your starting team and is James Pattinson a must have at 62k with a double in game week one?

As good as he was, don’t think Short can top last seasons feats. Pattinson probably if fit and ready to go.

6. Who is someone you think will be a smoky this year?
7. Making a big call, if you don’t start with…… You won’t win this year?

6 and 7. No idea. I only really do my research a day prior to lockout. I’m really lazy

8. Heat & Scorchers have a double game week one how many are you looking at starting with?

I focus on maximising the DGW players over the whole season rather than just week one.

9. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, shame on both of us… which player is on the never again list for BBL08?

Ben Cutting. I always get sucked in at some stage.

10. Which two big bash sides face off in the Grand final?

Scorchers and hopefully a Melbourne team.
