Has not taken the tournament by storm yet and looks to be a tad starchy at the start of his innings so far.
However, Philippe is an emerging talent so I think my man will produce some stellar knocks as the tournament progresses (perhaps that is the Sixers fan in me!).
He has enjoyed batting against the Renegades this year and has made runs in these two knocks with a 95 at the start of the tournament and then last round he made a lucky 48 off 30. A double game means he gets two chances to got out and get some runs.
Any bowler (Sixers)
The Sixers are such an even bowling line up and it is really hard to knock any of their major bowling options.
Anyone could have a day out but also most have a reasonable chance of picking up a wicket or two each match.
They also tend to share their overs out and it is not always clear who will bowl their maximum four over spell.
Depending on your teams needs and how much salary cap space you have any of Ben Dwarshius, Carlos Brathwaite, Steve O’Keefe or Dan Christian are all viable options.
A player who has started the tournament really well and is picking up lots of wickets. Unfortunately for owners he has done his calf and needs to be traded as he will miss the next three to four weeks.
Rilee Rossouw (Renegades)
I’m fnding it really hard to knock a gun this week but the closest I can get this week is Rossouw.
The international for the Renegades does have the capacity to score lots of runs quickly in an innings.
He has had one reasonable dig (59 against the Hurricanes) but has not set the world on fire with scores of 17 not out, 0, 17 and 3 in the other matches thus far in the BBL.
There are other batting options for the Renegades that I prefer.
