Trends Analysis: Which players have the wood against their upcoming finals’ opponent?
At this time of the SuperCoach BBL season it’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 round’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.
