Haven't heard anything in regards to an overseas for the Scorchers at this stage. However, have seen some of Banton's work in the T20 Blast and boy oh boy do I like the look of him. Would be a great pickup for a BBL side.
signed with the Heat , exciting times ahead.

HEAT KEEP HITS COMING WITH YOUNG-GUN BANTON
09 October 2019


Fresh from landing South Africa superstar AB de Villiers, the Brisbane Heat have landed another international coup by securing English young gun Tom Banton for the coming KFC BBL season.
Likened to Kevin Pietersen by former Heat star Brendon McCullum, the 20-year-old Somerset star lit up this year's T20 Blast competition in England with 549 runs at a strike-rate of 161.47, including a maiden T20 ton off just 51 balls against KentIt saw him called up to England's T20 squad to tour New Zealand next month, and he was named England's Young Cricketer of the Year last week.
Banton will play the first eight games of the Heat season, before Proteas legend de Villiers joins the Heat for their final six regular season games and any subsequent finals, with Afghanistan spin pair Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Zahir Khan rounding out Brisbane's international recruits for the summer.​
Banton, who is also a wicket-keeper, admitted it had been a whirlwind few months culminating in his first overseas T20 contract with the Heat. "If you had asked me at the start of the summer would I imagine it going like this, I would have probably had a laugh and suggested you weren't serious," he said.
"I was blown away when it was announced last week that AB was coming to join the Heat so what was already going to be a huge experience just got bigger.
"I'm really looking forward to coming to Brisbane and seeing what Queensland has to offer after previously playing club cricket in Perth when I was younger.
"I've watched a fair bit of the BBL at home and it is a quality competition with so many outstanding players. I can't wait to be honest.”
Heat coach Darren Lehmann said Banton's recruitment had been a high priority.​
"He was the talk of English cricket during their season," Lehmann said. "Outside the World Cup and the Ashes, Tom was the player that a lot of people were really excited to be watching, and with good reason.
"He's a lovely striker of the ball and has that wide and varied range of shots you need to make the most of the early overs in the power play or to accelerate the scoring through the middle and back half of an innings.
"The prospect of pairing him alongside some of our young batsmen like Max Bryant, his mate Matt Renshaw and Sam Heazlett is pretty enticing, that's for sure.
"But we know Tom will also benefit from playing and being around the likes of Chris Lynn, Joe Burns, Ben Cutting and Marnus Labuschagne as he takes steps to expand his skills and experience in Australian conditions.

"He's joining us for the first half of the tournament but we're hopeful he will have some time to catch-up with AB de Villiers at some point as that would be a great opportunity as part of his experience with the Heat."
Lehmann said the club was close to finalising its 18-man roster with two spots to fill.

"We're working on those last few spots, so we'll keep a close eye on the Marsh One Day Cup and Sheffield Shield, and performances in Premier Cricket," Lehmann said.
"It's all about weighing up the options to give us the depth in the roles we feel we need for the tournament."

Brisbane Heat BBL|09 squad: Chris Lynn, Tom Banton (UK), AB de Villiers (SA), Mujeeb Ur Rahman (Afg), Zahir Khan (Afg), James Pattinson, Max Bryant, Joe Burns, Ben Cutting, Sam Heazlett, Matthew Renshaw, Josh Lalor, Mitch Swepson, Jack Prestwidge, Mark Steketee, Jimmy Peirson, Marnus Labuschagne. (Two spots to fill).

Nicholas Pooran possibly to the Perth Scorchers

they might be better chasing his Amazon Warriors team mate Brandon King 132 * off 72, highest score in CPL history and 11 wins out of 11

be nice if Banton gets Bat/WK status.

Theoretically should be under $ 90,000.00

Expect Steyn & ABD to be $ 200k plus.

Not sure how they will price Morris.
What was Vince priced at when he came out? Might be a good indication of where Banton will be at. Most of the new overseas players start around 70-85k (ala Mujeeb), so I’m hoping he’s in that range too.

Definitely a better punt than Salt, but I’ll leave that to the analysis thread (when I get to it later today).

Using last season's MN of 2707 the Top 10 averaging players should be priced at (approximately) :-

Stoinis $ 262 k
Short $ 247 k
Cummins $ 227 k - could be discounted
Qais Ahmed $ 221 k
Richardson , K $ 201 k
Curran $ 197 k
Rashid Khan $ 191 k
Lalor $ 190 k
Richardson , J $ 186 k
Christian $ 185 k

Some I am keen on

Marsh , S $ 138 k
Lynnsanity $ $ 118 k
Finch $ 112 k
Marsh , M $ 100 k
Head $ 76 k

hoping Banton & Salt are < $ 90 k
Patterson should be $ 62,500.00

Paris , Rogers , Summers should be cheap

Philippe $ 115 k
Bancroft (if Bat/WK) $ 115 k

Gilkes & Lenton should be both $ 113 k but hopefully get discounted.

Paine should also get a discount on last season.

Think last year the Salary cap was $ 2 million.
