One of the biggest T20 league’s in the world takes center stage from tomorrow with a plethora of international stars joining the action. With the likes of Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine, Kevin Pietersen, Kumar Sangakkara, Brendon Mccullum in the midst, the Big Bash doesn’t lack in star power.
Our Top Player Picks:
Chris Lynn (Brisbane Heat) – He hits sixes for fun and he is regarded as one of the most destructive batsman in the world. Coming back from a shoulder injury, he had been in fine nick in the practice game and he is ready to turn up the HEAT this season.
Kieron Pollard (Adelaide Strikers) – He missed the entirety of last season with a serious injury and the menacing West Indian is set to strike the bowlers to all the corners of the Adelaide Oval and as a bonus he can come in handy with the ball too.
James Pattinson (Melbourne Renegades) – Coming after a long injury lay off, Patto has signaled his intention to play all the games for his side. He is back fit, strong and hungry to take the Gades to their first ever title glory.
Kurtis Patterson (SydneyThunder) – He narrowly missed out on the coveted test spot to his statemate Maddinson but he will be hungry to grab the Thunder this Big Bash for the champions at the top of the order.
Teams to Look out For
Leagues are won on the basis of the bowling arsenal the team possesses and if ever there was a well rounded bowling attack it had to be the Gades. With the likes of Bravo, Narine, Pattinson, Bradd Hogg and able sidekicks, this team is bound to go the distance along with Finch and White, who are T20 stalwarts in their own right.
With the acquisition of Ben Dunk at the top, the Strikers have built a complete squad with Head & Hodge shepherding the middle order and able death bowlers in Chris Jordan, Ben Laughlin and Kane Richardson, the strikers are a team to watch out for this series!
