Trends Analysis: Which players have the wood against their upcoming finals’ opponent?

At this time of the SuperCoach BBL season itโ€™s hard to get an edge, with coaches selecting teams from a reduced pool of players. Thus little advantages and nuggets of knowledge are key.

One thing which is often indicative of future performance is past performance against a specific side. Some batsmen like certain bowlers, some bowlers like certain batsmen, such as left-hand/right-hand orientation. Or some players like certain grounds.

With that in mind, Honeyball decided to look back at the BBL|10 encounters between this roundโ€™s finalists to ascertain any trends, to give you an edge.

Brisbane Heat v Adelaide Strikers

The last time these two sides met was at the Adelaide Oval only eight days ago, when Alex Carey ($191k BAT/WKP) scored a century to lead the Strikers to an 82-run victory.

Carey posted 166 BBL SC points on that day and actually missed their first encounter due to the Queensland border restrictions having been part of the Australia A squad in Sydney.

Wes Agar ($148k BWL) took a four-wicket haul, including the Heat top three Marnus Labuschagne, Chris Lynn and Joe Denly.

  • Just because he allows me to get the perfect team, tempted to pick Hughes, as he bats at number 3. Though, if probably wonโ€™t rely on him, as if any of my 3 loopholes do well, Iโ€™ll just shift my cash onto him and upgrade him to Dwarshuis or something.
