BBL:03 Round 5 Picks

Only got two right last round thanks to me picking the Sixers to  lose both their games… which they then won. Clearly I have no idea what I’m talking about.

  • Scorchers v Hurricanes (WACA) – The Hurricanes, with the exception of their stunning win over the Heat, have been struggling. All of the Scorchers games have gone to the last over, and they’ve got a 50% success rate. Going with the Scorchers.
  • Thunder v Heat (ANZ) – Bottom of the table clash. I just can’t see the Thunder winning, they haven’t played badly, they just look like a team that doesn’t know how to win. Dilshan’s influence has been minimal, and they’ve now lost Eoin Morgan. The Heat aren’t going that well themselves, and need to bounce back, and a game against the Thunder is the perfect platform for that.
  • Stars v Strikers (MCG) – Just as I don’t see the Thunder winning, I can’t see the Stars losing if they keep playing the way they have thus far. It’s likely the last game before they lose Maxwell, Faulkner, and McKay to national duties, so they’ll want to make the most of it.
  • Sixers v Scorchers (SCG) – Sixers played well to win over the Strikers last night, the Scorchers could also be without Shaun Marsh and Nathan Coulter-Nile due to ODI commitments (not entirely sure when they’re being called into camp), either way I’m going the Sixers who appear to be improving with each match and have found themselves sitting second on the ladder.
