The most awaited Big Bash League (BBL) 2019-20 is all set to begin from December 17. Before the game started, Shane Warne, Isa Guha, Mike Hussey and others pick their teams for the tournament.
Here’s Shane Warne’s BBL side for 2019-20:
D’Arcy Short $262,800
Although he is not like David Warner or Aaron Finch, he has the talent to do well in any format. Even he will be a key player for Australia across formats.
Chris Lynn $173,000
Chris Lynn is one of those players who are able to change the game on their own. Hence, he becomes the obvious choice.
Aaron Finch $167,000
Aaron Finch is one of the finest players in the World Cricket right now. He can get the job done almost every time and he will do well also.
Mackenzie Harvey $71,900
He had a great debut season for the Renegades last year and he will do well this year too.
Caleb Jewell $67,300
Jewell was impressive in the Marsh Cup. He can open the innings for the Hurricanes along with Darcy Short as the regular opener Matthew Wade is on the national duty.
Matthew Gilkes $96,700
He has done well in a recent Marsh Cup game and becomes an obvious choice here as well.
Ollie Davis $42,000
He is one of the most exciting, as well as, promising youngsters. He has smashed 17 sixes in an innings at last year’s Australian Under 19 championships.
Marcus Stoinis $278,900
He is one of the best all-rounders in the country. As he is out of action for some time due to injury, he will look forward to using the chance wholeheartedly.
Glenn Maxwell $175,100
Glenn Maxwell has returned to the squad from his break to cure the mental health issues. He has the potential to turn the table anytime both with the bat or ball.
Riley Meredith $139,000
He is one of the promising youngsters of the country and he will soon play for the national team too.
Fawad Ahmed $113,000
He is the best option if Nathan Lyon went down. His extra bounce suits his style.
Mitchell Swepson $98,500
He is a talented spinner, but unfortunately, he didn’t get much chance in Queensland.
Will Sutherland $42,000
Sutherland was one of the rookie players last year before his injury in stress fractures. He can bowl quick and hits long as well. He has the potential to become one of the best young all-rounders in the country.
Cameron Green $42,000
This 20-year-old all-rounder is making a huge impression at Shield level. Stands over 200cm, bowls 140km/h, hits massive performances speak for him.
Josh Philippe $123,000
He will play for Australia by the end of the summer.
Harry Nielsen $75,400
The son of my former Australian coach Tim Nielsen has the potential to go a long way.
