Strikers will get Head and Carey back for finals. Honestly I do not want to face them.

You know the BBL is in trouble when you're relying on English players to chase down totals...

Thunder a sneaky chance of getting into Top 2....it will come down to the last round of games.

Thunder have the slight advantage of playing later than the Sixers as well, so destiny is in their own hands.

if im right in saying, an Adelaide 4th spot, means a home final at Adelaide Oval?
Yes. Unless they play all finals in Victoria which has been an idea thrown around for a couple weeks now.

Adelaide batting starting to look scary if they have a top 7/8 of :

Renshaw, Henry Hunt, Cockbain, Head, Weatherald, Carey, Wells, Thomas Kelly


You have to drop 1 of those players, and probably Hunt makes way. But hate to say it, they may have the strongest batting line up in the comp come the Finals.

And the bowling stocks look good too especially in future years, especially if : Khan, Worrall and Agar all arent in the first XI.

Every Total chased down this year has involved an Englishman
Australian cricket still looking for a finisher...

Weatherald should go
Sorry man but Hunt is a player of the future, Weatherald has performances on the board from previous years.


Reckon Gillespie goes for Weatherald. If weatherald has a bad finals campaign, could see him being less favoured for next season.

Hunt is a kid and looks a bit nervous for me. Although including him in the team has changed the teams fortunes in the 2nd half of the season.

Tough one .

Weatherald is capable of having a match winning performance. Hunt isn't there yet.

I think Hunt plays proper opening batsman cricket shots and thunks about it a bit more than Weatherald does
