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.

  • Just because he allows me to get the perfect team, tempted to pick Hughes, as he bats at number 3. Though, if probably won’t rely on him, as if any of my 3 loopholes do well, I’ll just shift my cash onto him and upgrade him to Dwarshuis or something.
