The Big Bash continues with a match between the Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Thunder. The Thunder were smashed by the Sixers on Tuesday night and will be looking to bounce back, whereas the Renegades will be looking to get their campaign off to a winning start. We have your daily Big Bash fantasy tips sorted below.
Aaron Finch – $10,800
The Melbourne Renegades captain is elite in the short-form of the game with an amazing Twenty20 average of 34.58 at a strike rate of 133.9, with an amazing top score of 156. He is an explosive player who only knows how to play one way and will be looking to get the Melbourne Renegades off to a very fast start. He averaged 49.2 in BBL05.
Cameron White – $5,300
What an amazing start to the cricket season Cameron White has had to date, top-scoring in the Matador Cup with 457 runs at an amazing average of 76.16. He doesn’t have the explosiveness of Aaron Finch; however his career Twenty20 strike rate is still a very admirable 127.99 and he’s in superb form.
Jake Doran – $3,000
Have to make a choice between Peter Nevill and Jake Doran here and Doran gets the nod based on the fact he batted at number 5 against the Sixers. Peter Nevill will likely bat at number 7 or 8 so Doran has more value despite his limited experience.
Dwayne Bravo – $9,800
Bravo provides some excellent lower-order hitting and is superb with the ball as well. It will be the battle of the star West Indian all-rounders as he faces off against Andre Russell. He scored 201 runs in BBL05 at a strike rate of 164.75 and also took 6 wickets. Most importantly in 8 matches, he bowled 31.5 overs meaning he bowled his full allotment of 4 overs in every match.
Patrick Cummins – $4,800
It was a decent enough first game from Patrick Cummins, scoring 19 points despite poor bowling figures. He was actually very unlucky not to take at least a wicket and he showed that he not only possesses good bowling ability, but also provides good lower order hitting. He remains under-priced for his potential production.
Brad Hogg – $4,600
Despite being 45 years of age, Brad Hogg proved in BBL05 that he definitely still has it. He’s an extremely difficult bowler to get away with an overall career strike rate of 6.81 which is very decent in the shorter form of the game. He’s made the switch from the Scorchers this year and looks to be an integral part of the Renegades spin duo with West Indian Sunil Narine.
