Unfortunately the Big Bash is coming to a close for another year but it should be a cracking final between two deserving teams. The Sixers did it the hard way in winning a super over up in Brisbane whereas the Scorchers had Mitchell Johnson to thank for their convincing win over the Stars – taking 3/3 off his 4 overs in record-breaking BBL figures. We have $6,000 guaranteed for the contest tonight so get amongst it with our Big Bash fantasy tips below.
Daniel Hughes – $9,100
There’s really no other Sixers batsman to consider here. Hughes opens the batting and has made 20 or more runs in 6 of his 7 BBL06 matches so far. 20 runs gets a nice strike-rate bonus in the scoring system and although his strike-rate is only 119.84 for the tournament he’s certainly capable of pouring it on as demonstrated by his 85 off 55 against the Heat earlier this tournament.
Shaun Marsh – $3,500
After a very questionable start to BBL06, he’s hit back in superb fashion in his last two matches, making 113 runs off just 78 deliveries for MB scores of 37.5 and 45. At this price he’s a must play.
Sam Whiteman – $3,500
We’ve seen a role change by him lately and he has opened the batting in the Scorchers last two matches which makes him an excellent play at this price.
Ashton Agar – $6,300
The Scorchers all-rounder has eventually found his feet in the Big Bash after a slow start. He has scored 31, 25.5, 27 and 23.5 moneyball points in his last four courtesy of some very economical bowling. He’s also always in the right places in the field, taking numerous catches lately.
Sean Abbott – $10,500
He’s taken 20 wickets for the tournament so far. Yes, that’s right, TWENTY. His average moneyball points per game is 35.2. He’s extremely expensive but his record speaks for itself. Lock him in.
Jason Behrendorff – $8,100
He hasn’t played a match all tournament and may not play this one – but he’s likely to be an extremely good point of difference if he is named in the Scorchers final XI. He’s proven to be an excellent T20 bowler in the past with 53 wickets in 38 matches at an economy rate of just 7.26.
