With the double game weeks over and done with, I feel like the shackles can come off and we can really target some guilt-free PODs and guns without the fear of bypassing a player who will double up on points.
The rollercoaster season for the Cooma Stallions continued in Round 10 with a strong score of 1,274 to be ranked 481 for the round, and back into 1,402 overall.
It’s a much better position, and I’m fairly happy with the guns I have, my team value, and a few nice PODs already selected, so hopefully this is the round to break into the top 1,000.
The Melbourne Stars are a prime candidate as they play in game one, two and four in the final three rounds and have plenty of great options.
The Melbourne Renegades are even better with the first, first and third game of the round, but obviously have fewer decent trade targets.
The Sydney Sixers play in the final game of each round, so if you’re after a perfect nuff (non-player) to recruit to free up cash and use for the loopholes, look no further than Lawrence Neil-Smith at just $42k (thanks Spy for the great find).
Khan is coming off the double game week for the Stars yet is still owned by just 2.5% of teams, incredible!
I can’t believe more SuperCoaches didn’t jump on at the price for the double, not that I can talk, hindsight is a great thing…
However, he belted out 135 points and now has a breakeven of -42.
He had horrendous scores of 11, 3 and 8 in his first three games, but it’s a relatively risk-free trade due to the fact the Stars play so early in the next two rounds, so you can put the auto-emergency on him and loop if he scores well.
Worst case he scores poorly and you don’t loop him and he still makes big coin due to the low breakeven, nice!
I expect him to be in super POD territory for this week only.
Big Morne is on the scene and looking good!
Despite a long lay-off from cricket, he’s taken three wickets in his two games so far at an economical rate.
In his latest outing against a firing Scorchers line up he had a very impressive return of 2/24 off four overs.
In his international T20 career he struck every 20.2 balls at an economy of 7.50.
We know his credentials, so with his classy return to action he must be considered at just 2.5% ownership.
