What I'm rolling with at the moment:

Khawaja, Vince, Banton, Hales, Hughes (Green, McGurk)
Philippe (Neilson)
Short, Curran, Abbott, Morris, Laughlin (Conway, Ellis)

Pretty generic, 10 DGW's. Have enough strikers/scorchers to fill out a team in Rd3. Opinions are welcome :)
if the 3 of them play 😀

Can anybody in the Twitterverse tweet the Sixers to confirm whether Curran and/or Vince will be available for the Sixers first game if their team makes the MSL T20 Final?

I am expecting them to both still be available as they play more than 36 hours after the MSL final concludes but wouldn’t hurt to confirm for team planning purposes..
and the ECB to make sure they are not in the Test Squad

This is what I am trying to take advantage of too, if possible. With 3 DGW teams the majority will only choose from those 3 teams. It so happens those 3 teams aren't 3 of the better teams in the comp. Guys like Curran and Morris and Lynn/Cutting yes fine you've got to get them. That 9th to 11th starting spot though I think warrant at least consideration of good SGW options.

There's nothing worse than having to carry a dud for 5 weeks because you got too DGW blinkered in R1.

The same thing applies to those of us playing NBL dream team. Yes doubles are important but you can get too obsessed about them.
fair point

people may also be planning to just trade 6 Heat/Thunder players to Scorchers/Strikers in Week 2 & 3 so as to take advantage of their DWG's.

Interestingly that is the Squad for all 3 Tests , with Hohns stating they can add players if necessary.
Yeah, that was an interesting comment. Suggests they might pull players out of the BBL as concussion subs if necessary. Hopefully they'd pick someone like Pucovski who isn't playing it rather than, for argument's sake, Finch.

That must be with a more value approach though?

In looking to start Carey as back up WK but that eats into the cap a bit

The teams going $42k on all bench spots will struggle to end up full DGW in round 3 if they sew loaded in R1 I assume
It’s with Carey on the bench and Sutherland and Green as the 42k rookies. One of Wes Agar/Paris also on the bench.

My 9-11 are Laughlin, Henriques and Steketee who I am really only getting because of the DGR. Had Hales over Steketee previously

This concussion sub is causing all sorts of concerns , looks like Neser is being released to play the Shield game this week which is the final round before the break which at least gives him a game in case he is needed.

Ponting was talking about getting Green involved in the Squad for the experience factor but that's not a bad idea of getting Pucovski involved again and using him as sub if necessary.

Yes I think Carey is the key to that strategy. Green and Agar types may not be that valuable on a DGR or even play both games. Carey however is a good DGR starter.

That's why I think what's the difference between one less DGR in R1 (say Jordan) if it gets you one extra in R3. By "extra" I mean an actually quality DGR starter not a bench cheapie or mid-priced punt.

I'd have to think on that more.

Bit of a play around with the team over lunchtime:

Khawaja, Lynn, Banton, Hales, Peirson (Green, MCG)
Philippe (Neilson)
Stoinis, Curran, Cutting, Qais, Morris (Ellis, Conway)

Bit of an all in on Stoinis as a SGR, Qais also a SGR and a few others look a bit iffy to even be in Australia!

Was just reading an article suggesting Inglis is going to keep for the Scorchers.

Depending on who they sign as IRP for Behrendorff & Tye (assuming the rules are still the same as before) , and given they signed Jordan as their second OS player they may actually go for another batsmen eg Bosisto , Calder , David (not 100% on whether he is classified as OS player or not.

So all things being equal :-

Bancroft
Livingstone
Marsh - back 24th ???
Patterson - injury cloud
Turner
Inglis (WK)

+ Agar , Fawad , Jordan , Kelly/Paris , Richardson

Others:

Green
Hardie
Hobson
Paris/Kelly
Whiteman
+ 2 replacements

hoping Green does not just play until Marsh is available

if Marsh & Turner can't bowl they may also go 6 specialist Bowlers (or trust Livingstone if they need to)

all conjecture for a few weeks , and just my opinions and thoughts

How confident are you that both Laughlin & Steketee even play let alone both games ?

wow

been trying to figure out how to get Stoinis in and look at you go 😀

Doesn't look to bad all especially if that bench is all named.

Just having another read , Bancroft looks like he is the standby batsmen still for Perth.

Talk if they need a second spinner for Sydney (Agar , Holland , Swepson) they will need a all-rounder (with Marsh doubtful , that leaves Stoinis)

and here I was thinking you would be unveiling your 2 players per team side this season.

So if I understand this correctly if you are playing the bench loops you already have a Striker on your bat bench and bowl bench.

Just curious
I haven’t perfected it yet ... but you know me too well. My skeleton team is two players per team, and I have made 3 changes to get to 9 DGW players. I usually try and stay within 3 trades of returning two players per team, but that will changed when I get sucked into the adrenaline of last minute changes!!

I don’t have a Striker bowler at present as I am not expecting to have to take Green’s score. I have Neser in bats ready to swing down if needed, and I would need to bring in another Striker for the bowler I would have fielded instead of Green. I have Carey in keeper position ready to swing with Handscomb if required or I would need to switch Handscomb to another Striker if he is not needed for keeper so I can take Marsh’s score.

As it stands I have 2 Strikers, but if my bench all perform really well, it could force me to have as many as 5 Strikers!! I would prefer not to have 5 so I will probably set high expectations to loop more than one bench player, say 75+?

75+ from a SWG player , would take it in a heartbeat , not too many averaging that.

Neser is interesting whether he stays with the Test Squad or is released , suspect if they want Agar (@ Stoinis by default) for Sydney Neser is released.

Hopefully they announce something during the Boxing Day Test & announce the ODI Squad as well.

I wonder how the 2 player per team would work including all the OS players , no keeper though.

I might trial it myself for the IPL.

I think I have settled (so far) on 9 x DWG's and building from there.

Thanks
