Yes. Also we get Marsh and Inglis back. Should be a win tonight to seal top spot.
Pity they couldn't let Pie catch an early flight this morning. That said, there should be enough bowling between Tye/Morris/Behrendorf and Kelly if he's out of the covid cloud.

Pretty sure Kelly's not available.
Marsh will bowl though.
Evans probably out for the year with a busted toe.
Agar is 50/50.

Should be getting it done though.

Dead rubber for both teams. This is the sort of game Lynn will make 100 off of 50 balls with no pressure to win.

Scorchers have nothing to play for, The Bears Heat have nothing to play for.

Motivation obviously wont be as high but in a game where the motivation isnt as high for both teams - I still expect the better team to win.

im starting to think Cam Bancroft might be a handy addition for another BBL team next season. Might look and get an opportunity at a team that didnt make the Finals.

Weird game with it being at a neutral venue with no crowd and both teams with nothing to play for.

Interesting picking Marvel as our preferred venue. Doesn’t really suit any of our players and would’ve thought it suits the Sydney teams more

if Perth had the choice to play at the MCG, would have definitely chosen that as the dimensions are similar to Optus Stadium.

Knowing CA it was probably either the SCG or Marvel, no negotiation

Ill say it right here, Brisbane should go after Cam Bancroft for next seasons BBL. He is the right sort of player for them for me.

Lynn can’t hit spin so feels like he has to launch against any pace bowling - leading to that wicket. It’s an embarrassing approach for a professional cricketer.

Duckett going to give us another tedious innings that takes the game away from his team?

Edit: 1 from 7. Bet those people who made the trip to Marvel are enjoying this incendiary display of batting

his job right now should just be to rotate the strike to Bryant and hit the bad ball.
