BBL09 Player Availability

Written by Motts on December 5 2019

The Death Adder joins in to also provide some tips on who should be in and out of your squads. Great stuff, brother!

It is always important when picking your starting line up and trading throughout BBL Supercoach to take into account players that will be unavailable due to Test and One Day International Duties.

Australia Test selectors have announced the 13 player squad for its three match Test series against New Zealand. The Australian Test selectors included the Adelaide Strikers Michael Neser and Brisbane Heats James Pattinson to the 13 player squad. Therefore, you can rule both of them out as starting options for your SC BBL starting line ups.

Australian Test Squad is Tim Paine ( Capt ) , Joe Burns , Pat Cummins , Josh Hazlewood , Travis Head , Marcus Labuschagne , Nathan Lyon , Michael Neser , James Pattinson , Steve Smith , Mitchell Starc , Matthew Wade , Michael Warner.

The BBL 09 season kicks off on December 17th with the 1st test between Australia and New Zealand starting on the 16th of December which most likely rules out all of the players in the test squad until after the 7th of January when the 3rd test is scheduled to finish.



DATES 14/01/2020, 17/01/2020, 20/01/2020

Players Most Likely To Be Included In The Australian One Day International Squad (ODIS)

Warne, Finch, Smith, Labuschagne, Carey, Agar, Cummins, Starc, Kane Richardson, Zampa, Turner, Shaun Marsh, Darcy Short, Stoinis, Stanlake, Jye Richardson, Coulter- Nile, Maxwell if available.

I would like to thank James Stelzer @James_Stelz for providing his thoughts on an Australian ODIS in @bricemitchell’s BBL Supercoach chat room.

Worth noting are that the ODIS will most likely exclude players from rounds 5 to 8 in BBL SC.  The Stars have double game weeks (DGWS) in rounds 5 and 7 which for the novices out there, means that they play twice in a round of BBL.

Double points are on offer if you have players from teams with a DGW. Renegades also have a DGW in Round 5 and the Scorchers in Round 6.

It is important when planning trades from Round 4 onwards that Supercoaches note that some players from the Stars could be unavailable. Stoinis will most likely be playing in the ODI team and Maxwell may also be available for the ODI team.  Both Stars players will miss their two DGW in Rounds 5 and 7.  If you own either of these two players they will need to be traded.

Renegade players to avoid are Aaron Finch and Kane Richardson.  Nathan Coulter-Nile might also need to be avoided for the Scorchers Round 6 DGW.  Darcy Short is another player that might be unavailable for the BBL and if that is the case he will need to be traded. The Hurricanes do not have a DGW from Rounds 5 to 8, but if Short is available for the BBL during this period include him in your team at this stage of the tournament due to his scoring ability.

Thanks to Boydo @BoydosBest who raised the ODI Series in the @bricemitchell BBL SC chat room which inspired this write up.

  1. I must point out that this is mainly a write up for novices. I would also like to point out that you get 36 trades and 3 trades each round so use all of them as you get unlimited trades in finals.

    There are people who played last year that had double digit trades left come finals time as they did not realise they had unlimited trades in finals. The #1 Novice rookie mistake.

    I have just opened up the final SCT SC BBL League SuperCoachTalk #6 – League Code #428286.
    Please only join if you have missed out on a spot in the earlier SCT Leagues.
