Usually a SuperCoach gun, he is not someone you want in your side this week.
I would want to see him bowling again to increase his point scoring potential, but also he is having some extra time off over the festive period and will miss the Stars match on Boxing day to spend some extra time with family.
Enjoy Marcus and we can’t wait to see you return and light and the BBL soon!
Alex Hales (Thunder)
He absolutely smoked them towards the end of last campaign after initially struggling early on. He could be repeating that pattern this year.
He has struggled with two ducks in his last two games. I would be looking for some more form before purchasing.
James Pattinson (Renegades)
James Pattinson has the ability to bowl express and take wickets in the shorter form of the game.
However, do not pick him in your BBL side as he is busy with Test duties in the Australian squad.
Sean Abbott (Sixers)
One of the leading wicket-takers in the BBL. Usually he would be one to consider for your sides, but not on this occasion.
He initially withdrew from the first Test squad due to injury, but has rushed down to Melbourne to avoid border closure complications and looks set to join in some training in the Test set up provided his calf injury has healed.
