This year SuperCoaches get $2 million salary cap and you need to pick 16 players with 7 batsmen, 2 wicket keepers and 7 bowlers. All-rounders are dual-position and selectable as either batsmen or bowlers. All wicket keepers are dual position players selectable as batsmen or wicket keepers.
So to get your study started, here is the scoring system for the upcoming season.
The system is unique and exclusive to SuperCoach BBL, developed in consultation Fox Sports Stats and News Corp stakeholders.
Runs (per run scored): 1 point
For every run a player scores above the amount of balls faced: 1 point (eg: if a player scores 40 of 26 balls, they score an additional 14 points)
Bonus for every 6 hit: 2 points
Bonus for every 4 hit: 1 point
Wicket: 25 points
Bonus for every three wickets in one match: 10 points
Maiden over bowled: 15 points
Dot ball bowled: 1 point
Extra conceded (includes wides and no balls): -1 point
Economy rate bonus:
* 4 or less RPO: 25 points
* 4.01-5 RPO: 20 points
* 5.01-6 RPO: 15 points
* 6.01-7 RPO: 10 points
* 7.01-8 RPO: 5 points
Note: Must bowl at least two overs for ER bonus
Catch: 10 points
Run out (player affecting run out): 20 points
Stumping (wicketkeeper only): 15 points
Note: Super Over stats/points are NOT included in this competition. Only stats/points accrued within the regular overs of each innings are included and attributed to the players.
Spotless: small straight boundaries, long square boundaries. Leg spinners tend to find more success here because the nature of the pitch is slow and batsmen try to play from the crease more. More bowled, LBW and caught on square boundaries here.
Marvel: similar dimensions to spotless, just a bit longer straight than spotless. Again a slowish pitch. New ball does a fair bit here as proven by Richardson and shinwari in previous games, so seems to be good for all bowlers. Batting seems to get easier overs 12-20, so allrounders who bat in the middle order seem to benefit most.
MCG: Large ground, makes it hard for many 6’s to be hit. Seamers tend to bowl into the wicket, but generally it’s off pace deliveries as it’s hard to heave over the fence. However plenty of space means plenty of 1’s-2’s are scored, so batsmen who are accumulators tend to get into their work well here before teeing off. Spinners do well here generally because of the longer boundaries, but the pitch is fairly benign so it’s dependent on their skill.
Optus: Little information on this as I’ve only seen one match live here, but it looks a quick wicket. Probably opt for allrounders/bowlers over batsmen at these grounds and hope for the best.
Gabba: Wicket is usually quite good for both seamers and batsmen. Bit of pace in the wicket means the new ball can dominate if used well, but the extra bounce gives batsmen the freedom to throw their hands and hit 6’s that might normally fly to guys in the deep. Spinners have to be on their game here as overpitching generally gets them into trouble. Boyce bowled beautifully here the other night by mixing up his lengths well.
SCG: Usually has one short boundary which batsmen try to target. If pitch is in the middle of the square, it usually makes for a higher scoring game as there is no long boundary. Pitch is generally pretty good for batting so bowling scores are fairly hard to predict in advance. Given it’s the Sixers who play there, it’s a pretty mixed bag with what you get.
Hobart: This is generally a road and plays as such. Plenty of bounce in the wicket which suits the likes of wade and short but the quicker bowlers can exploit it if they get it right. Spinners need to bring their A-games when they play here as there’s no real long boundary but there’s usually a shorter boundary to contend with depending on pitch placement.
Adelaide: Small boundaries square make for high scoring games. The pitches are generally more flat than offering much for the bowlers, although guys who bowl stump to stump find more success as batsmen are forced to hit them to the longer straight boundaries. Spinners who attack the stumps are gold here. Sandeep, rashid, botha etc. Batsmen who are good on crossbat shots also worth a thought.
