Cheers for the exclusive Damion and nice work Thanh!

Who is the must have player and why?

Lynn, McCullum, Willey, Tye
Oh and adding these guys to my team as we speak (I haven’t actually started my team yet but have to start somewhere :LOL:)

Thanks for the exclusive @Damion23 ;)

Well done on coming up with the idea of rounding up all of the previous winners (bar one who's still on the loose) for a one-on-one with the BBL guru himself, I doubt that anyone else would've been able to accomplish such a feat.(y)

I was looking at their batsmen the other day , you can almost bet 1 of Cartwright , Klinger or Turner will be a good pick Week 1but I am not confident going with any of them.

Is it case of selecting 4-5 from Tye , Agar , Willey , Behrendorff , Coulter-Nile and crossing your fingers.

M Marsh getting dropped confuses things as well.

Maybe you then need to trade 2 of them out (+ Lynn in Week 2) to your required Striker players.

Lynn + McCullum + UrRahman only gives you $ 408,900.00 to play with which limits your Striker players unless you start a heap of cash.

Decisions , decisions
I'm currently down to 3 scorchers only in my rd 1 team

@THCLT, I reckon this was written a while ago ;)

With Harris in the test team, who is your smoky now?
Haha yes was done a few weeks back. (took a little while to get everyone's reply)

Thank you for taking the time out along with everyone else.

hopefully people who take the time to read all 7 of them can get something out of it.

Only way to fit in MMarsh for me was to cut Short. I think MMarsh is another MUST if he's available for the DGR first up. With some shuffling I was also able to go Denly/Heazlett/Mujeeb to Watson/Bryant/Nabi. Really do like the look of Nabi in my starting line up.

Interesting choice , replacing a leg spinner with a fast bowler.

Bird , Boland , Coleman , Worrall + Bravo , Stoinis.

Opens up a spot for Beer & Bowe to partner Zampa when Lamichhane departs.

Definitely a win for Stars. Plunkett bowls absolute gas and is a smart T20 bowler.

Not too surprised, did think they may have gone for a batsman though. I guess Plunkett can whack them late on though.

Stars have a ton of spinners, Zampa, Beer, Bowe, Lamichhane and supplementary Vic players in O'Connell and Grimwade (who I think are both Stars aligned).

You are lot closer to it to me , but I would have thought definitely a OS batsmen , even more so when Maxwell & Stoinis play ODI's and if Handscomb stays in the Test side

Be relying on blokes like Dean , Gotch , Gulbis , Merlo (?) to add to Dunk , Maddison & Bravo.

Can't find anything regarding their final player but recently discovered that Klinger suffered a back injury.

Via ESPN Cricinfo Match Report http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/...-blitz-11th-match-mzansi-super-league-2018-19): 'However, it was not a straightforward victory. Michael Klinger had suffered a back injury during Blitz's innings and wasn't available to bat".
Report on Cricinfo Nov 28 says Klinger is out of the tournament and replaced by David Wiese
