Double header today and we have $3k guaranteed for both contests. Unlike other articles we are suggesting just one player per position per match. See our tips below.
Ian Bell – $5,500
The prices are very reactive and since Bell has been in a poor run of form he’s extremely cheap at just 5.5k. After a very good start to BBL06 he has tapered away with just 25 runs in his last three innings; however this means he is at a good price and he is a class batsman who will bounce back. Hopefully it’s here.
Colin Munro – $6,500
He looked very rusty in his first game for the Sixers but the Kiwi international brings a great deal of shorter form experience and we’re predicting him to bounce back in this one. He has a Twenty20 average of 27.52 at a strike rate of 144 and is coming off a massive 101 off just 54 balls in the second T20 against Bangladesh.
Timothy Paine – $7,400
Back down to a much more realistic price of $7,400, Tim Paine represents a good buy against the Scorchers. The Hurricanes top order has failed in recent times – mainly thanks to Paine – but if he demonstrates any of the form he showed early on in the tournament he could be a tournament winner.
Brad Haddin – $5,400
Offers more upside than Sam Harper who rarely gets a bat in the Stars side. Brad Haddin will bat at 4 or 5 and s coming off some decent innings of 32 and 31 late in the tournament.
Ashton Agar – $3,500
He’s bargain priced for a player of his ability due to not really getting a fair crack this tournament. He has bowled a lot more recently – bowling almost his full allotment in his last 3 – and it has reflected in his scores of 31 and 25.5
Evan Gulbis – $5,700
There’s really no other choice in this one with Maxwell, O’Keefe, Faulkner and Stoinis all unavailable we are left to choose between Gulbis and Henriques. Henriques hasn’t’ bowled at all this tournament and has batted poorly with the exception of the first game, therefore Gulbis represents the better buy.
Andrew Tye – $6,200
Arguably Perth’s best bowler this BBL, Tye comes at a nice discount to some of the other bowlers. He’s taken 9 wickets in the tournament at an economy rate of just 6.76. He’s a death bowler as well which is always handy for wickets.
Sean Abbott – $10,200
With so much value elsewhere we can afford the lofty price tag for Abbott – who is leading the tournament wicket tally with a massive 15 across his 7 matches to date. He has been kept below two wickets just twice so far and is averaging a huge 31.2 moneyball points for the tournament.
