SuperCoach BBL is back for another big year after a massive return season in BBL|08.

We’ve provided you with two top 100 guides – players by their price in 2019, and players by their average last season; that means that while AB de Villers is in the former, he’s not in the latter … and due to his expected unavailability for half the BBL|09 season, he’s not even in our predicted top five players for the season ahead!

Much as in SuperCoach BBL last season, the best guide to which players to pick is your gut – if you think that the likes of Jake Lehmann will provide incredible value at that low, low price and step up after a quiet year last season, back him in! However, if you’re determined to play it a bit safer, it’s hard to go past the #2 player in the game and #1 in our ranking, D’Arcy Short from Hobart Hurricanes.

Ten standout players to consider for BBL|09:

A worthy second choice in our top 10 players for the season ahead, Stoinis is the clear high-priced player based upon his incredible season last year. He monstered it for the Stars, and any player who can average nearly 100 points in the game – nearly 30 average points per game higher than the tenth-ranked player – is worth selecting, particularly when he has dual position flexibility.

You simply can’t look past D’Arcy Short. He’s the top player in the game over Stoinis because, quite simply, he is more likely to play the full season. With Short unlikely to get a call up to tour India in the middle of the BBL|09 season, he’s a sure-fire winner for the majority of SuperCoach BBL sides, with his Dual Position Player flexibility making him a monty to pick in either the BAT or BWL position.

One of the biggest stars in the cricketing world for the last fifteen years, De Villiers did it all for South Africa – he debuted in Test cricket at just 20 years of age, and was soon a regular across all three formats for his country. He holds the record for the fastest 50 by South African in T20Is in just 21 balls, and has played franchise T20 cricket for Barbados Tridents, Tshwane Spartans, Rangpur Riders and Lahore Qalandars in leagues across the world, ahead of his maiden BBL sojourn this summer. He’s a brilliant player and one of the biggest international stars for this season.

Bowlers who do not have DPP flexibility might not be fashionable when it comes to SuperCoach BBL, but Kane Richardson is an exception – he was fourth most for total points last season, fifth for season-long average, and yet was #30 for most-selected at the end of the season. Crazy! He’s a proven SC BBL gun. The only caveat may be that he will likely be in the touring party for the Australian tour to India in January, missing a big chuck of the Big Bash season as a result.

Curran proved to be an out-and-out star in the Big Bash League last season, but there’s a massive concern ahead of this season – just how many games will he play? The likelihood is that, like his English counterpart Joffra Archer, he will be required for English duties for the majority of the back half of the BBL|09 season as they are touring South Africa at that time. He will, however, be around for the first part of the season.

Shane Warne’s star-studded SuperCoach team

Some considered Khan’s BBL|09 season last a bit of a let-down – he didn’t command quite the same number of headline inches as he did the first time around, when the Strikers ended the competition as the winners. With his side struggling last year, Khan was nevertheless a strong performer and it’s reasonable to expect that he’ll be another wicket-taking weapon third time around.

While the likes of Shaun Marsh are unlikely to get Australian selection honours this summer, the chance that Usman Khawaja is picked at Test level or as part of the touring party to India raises some degree of concern in terms of his security, as he would be particularly handy as a lead-off batsman from a side who do not have a bye this SuperCoach BBL season. There’s a reason that he’s the eighth most expensive player in the game this season – he’s an absolutely T20 gun at domestic level.

Christian performs when it counts: in his last five games of the previous SuperCoach season he averaged 95 points per game and had two monster performances – a 158 point effort against the Scorchers and then a 126 point outing in the grand final against the Stars – and on only one of those games did he fail to crack less than 59 points.

Sean Abbott is another player who – like the aforementioned Rashid Khan or Kane Richardson – is worth bringing in to your side as a specialist bowler in lieu of going for a lower-priced DPP option. He might not get to the crease that often – only twice in BBL|08 did he earn more than 30 points with his batting – but his guileful bowling makes him well worth having in your SC BBL squad as a specialist bowler.

There are three main reasons to seriously bringing Marsh in to your SuperCoach BBL squad. Firstly, the likelihood is that he will NOT be playing for Australia this summer – his season will be uninterrupted by higher commitments. Secondly, he has switched coasts and will now be playing for the reigning champion. Thirdly, he only played two games in BBL|08 – in one he made a century and scored 152 points, and in the other he failed and made 2. Expect him to score far better than his average last season and his price this year indicates he will be positioned in terms of overall ranking.
