Practice Match Form Guide

Adelaide Strikers

No pre-season matches.

Brisbane Heat

Hobart Hurricanes

Josh Kann (2/16) was the pick of the bowlers for the Hurricanes in their match against the Melbourne Stars and is firming for a Round 1 selection, which is music to SuperCoaches ears given he’s priced at $42,000 and comes with DPP flexibility.

Peter Handsomb and Tim David were the stars with the bat with scores of 41 off 24, and 37 off 16 respectively.

Melbourne Renegades

Recent signing James Seymour has rocketed into many SuperCoach sides, including Azza and Damo’s respective sides after back-to-back 50s for the Renegades. In his first outing Seymour scored 70 from 51 and in Friday’s match he blasted 59 from just 22 balls. Priced at only $42,000 and holds DPP status, he’s firming as a must have heading into Round 1.

Will Sutherland is also proving to be a POD after scoring over the important 20 run threshold on all three occasions with 41, 20 and 28, with a mighty strike rate of 174.51 to go along with wickets with 1/34 and 1/7.

Melbourne Stars

Glenn Maxwell was in his usual Maxwell mood against the Renegades in their first practice match hitting 68, but it was Brody Couch that impressed with a 4 wicket haul to go along with a 2/33 in the second match.

Clint Hinchliffe also cemented his spot in the side with a 39 off 20 and a 34 off 20 along with 1/20, giving SuperCoaches a lot to think about given the competition in that sub $100k range.

Perth Scorchers

Newly signed replacement player Nick Hobson hit 92 off 59 deliveries, while Aaron Hardie hit a massive 83 and was among the wickets when part of the bowling attack.

Sydney Sixers

Moises Henriques 77 off 57

Ben Manenti 2/21

Sydney Thunder

Sam Billings and Daniel Sams were the standouts in the practice matches against the Sydney Thunder with Sams going ballistic hitting 66 off 27 balls with a six that sailed out of the stadium. Just set and forget.

Captain Choices

Tom Curran is dangerous with bat and ball, and averages 80 SuperCoach points against the Stars and 75.08 at the SCG.

Josh Phillipe will open the batting and also take the gloves for the Sixers. Averages 56.4 at the SCG.

Chris Lynn is a volatile performer but loves playing against the Thunder first up. Averages 62 against them, and 46 at Manuka Oval. Averages 67 against Scorchers too.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman averages 60.25 vs the Sydney Thunder and 39 at Manuka Oval. Averages a massive 104.5 against the Scorchers, too.

Glenn Maxwell if you daring to go for a Single game week player, then Maxi may be your man. He averages 74 against the Sixers, and loves playing at the SCG with an average of 61.7.

Rashid Khan averages a whopping 121 against the Renegades, and could go absolutely mental against an inexperienced Renegades batting line-up. Another SGW player to consider, if you dare.
