A great start to the Big Bash. Tim Ludeman went huge against the Stars and he
almost single handily won the match for the Strikers. On the topic of the Stars,
they had the double game and they also took on the Hurricanes. On the back of
some great bowling from Hilfenhaus who took a 4-for, and some huge late hitting
from Darren Sammy, the Hurricanes were the most impressive team of the round
for mine. The Stars were hugely disappointing with their international stars
unable to find their best form. There were also wins for the Sixers and Thunder
(Kallis and Hussey were incredible). The Perth Scorchers had the BYE.
Prices do not change until next round, hence there are no biggest movers of the
Nic Maddinson (Sixers).. At just $49,700, he is a bargain who will bat at the top
of the order every week. Based on his form against the Renegades, he is in for a
huge Big Bash and will get two goes at it in Round 2, with the Sixers have two
games. His price will increase dramatically so he is a must buy ahead of this
Michael Klinger (Scorchers). At a low price of $69,200, Klinger will bat at the
top of the order and is a seasoned campaigner. He is a great long term option as
he will score consistently every week.
Jacques Kallis (Thunder) $92,500 but worth every penny. His price will sky
rocket to over $100,000 next round so get in while he is still affordable.
Brett Lee (Sixers) $59,900 is a good price. A great economical bowler, Brett is
bowling fast and is looking extremely fit. He had a good first round and he is a
handy player to have in your side. He will get 8 overs in total this week with the
double game so chances are he will gain a-lot of points.
Michael Hussey (Thunder).. $76,800 amazing price for a great player. A
thunderous 97 against the Heat proved he can still score lots of runs. His price
will sky rocket next round, a smart option.
Other names which should also be considered are Brad Hogg (Scorchers), Ben
Hilfenhaus (Hurricanes), Matthew Wade (Renegades), Moises Henriques (Sixers),
Aaron Finch (Renegades), Nathan Reardon (Heat), Darren Sammy (Hurricances).
Joe Burns (Heat) Picked for Australia. Trade out immediately.
Kevin Pieterson (Stars).. Scored big in the first match of Round 1, but teams are
working out how to bowl to him. Will be targeted and unlikely to get any big
scores. Not worth 93,500, when you can pick up Michael Hussey for example, for
almost $20,000 less.

Michael Lumb (Sixers).. the sort of player who will make starts of 20-30 but not
go on with it. Judging by Round 1, nothing much has changed from BBL 3. Trade
out for now, or place him in your reserves.
Michael Beer (Stars).. not threatening with the ball after taking a 4for in a
practice match. May not see much game time after some poor performances.
Trade out immediately.
Andrew Flintoff (Heat).. a duck and no wickets means that his relatively
expensive price is now a joke. Trade out immediately.
James Faulkner (Stars).. bats low in the order, bowling could be useful but not
worth keeping him due to his price and his limited all-rounder ability.
Glen Maxwell (Stars) missed out twice with the bat, but keep him on your
reserves. His price will drop next week so he is a handy cheapie. Expect him to
bounce back.
Kieran Pollard (Strikers).. 0 points due to his inability to create impact with the
ball and him not having a chance to bat. Except him to get a chance up the order
at some point so place him in your reserves, but do not put him in your starting
11, yet
Dan Christian (Heat).. Missed out with the bat in Round 1 but he will bat at the
top of the order every week and he comes off great shield form. Will bowl and is
a chance to pick up some wickets. Keep him for now.
Aaron Finch (Renegades).. comes in at roughly $102,00 but he is an explosive
player and even though he only managed 20 against the Sixers, he will bounce
back. If you have loads of money, pick him up, might just well be worth it.
Sam Whiteman (Scorchers).. will be the keeper for the Scorchers and is only
$47,900. Will probably bat somewhere in the top 4.
Nic Maddinsion (Sixers) [see above]
Jonathon Wells (Hurricanes).. $33,700 is so cheap and he is in form, scored 88
points in Round 1!

Dont pick any Melbourne Stars players in your starting 11 as they have a
BYE in Round 2.
Pick a handful Sixers and Scorchers players as they both have 2 games
this round.
Remember, prices change next round, so this could be your last chance to
get players in form at cheap prices.
