SuperCoach BBL late mail: Alex Carey, Adam Zampa, D’Arcy Short
Several Australian ODI representatives have been named ahead of Round 12 after returning from their three-match tour against India.
Strikers keeper Alex Carey and Stars duo Adam Zampa and Pete Handscomb will re-join their franchises for their hotly anticipated matchup tomorrow night.
Carey headlines the ins from a SuperCoach perspective, having averaged 61 points per game before jetting off to the subcontinent.
Add in the Strikers double game round and he becomes an irresistible trade-in option.
Fellow Aussie squad member D’Arcy Short will not feature in the first game of the Hurricanes’ double game round, but could feature in their second match against the Sydney Thunder on Friday night.
He made a brilliant century in his final game on his way to 173 points but $195.3k is a lot of cash for a player who isn’t playing twice.
Keep an eye on squads over the next two days to see if Steve Smith, Josh Hazlewood and Marnus Labuschagne join the BBL rank in Round 12.
JORDAN OUT, MORNE IN
The Scorchers’ international signing finished his BBL campaign with a bang, claiming three wickets and scoring 103 points, but it’s time to trade the Englishman out.
Jordan has joined England in South Africa for their upcoming short-form series, and it is fitting that a South African has come in to replace him.
Star paceman Morne Morkel ($160k, BWL) played 44 T20 internationals for his country but don’t buy him this round. He is set to join the Scorchers next week and is expected to make his first BBL09 appearance in Round 13.
