Matt Short has turned into some kind of player. Hopefully see him in more squads for Australia going forward.

He's getting opportunities, but he's been found out against good spinners internationally. Key word being "good"

Surely plays as an opener when getting the chance next time not coming in at 6-7.

Has been tried there and looked completely clueless against spin, there's the issue. He'll get some chances, but the BBL masks over his deficiencies against spin as frankly we don't have them and the one elite spinner was in his team (Rashid). Teams would just bowl spin in the PP's and he'll do little.
Their bowling group does look thin. But the batters look like a solid enough group imo, Weatherald excepted (it’s mind-blowing he’s getting a game imo, looks so unprofessional when he plays).

Bit like the Thunder, can see the Strikers posting 200+ but also failing to stop another team chasing them down.

Scorchers and Sixers will be streets ahead again, virtual certainty both will be top four and one will pick up the trophy.
Reckon the Heat are a bit of a smokey.....
