Section 6: Finding the fantasy value: 

Top picks: 

Daniel Sams: Default captaincy choice if you’re playing small leagues. Good recent form, scored runs & picked wickets in the practice game as well, will bowl at the death and is a power hitter down the order. 

Sams vs Heat: 

6I, 131R, 26A, 211SR, HS: 65* 

15.2O, 8W, SR: 11.5 

Sams at Manuka Oval: 

10I, 208R, 29A, 50:2 

36.4O, 15W, SR: 14.7 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Chris Lynn (batting first): Another very safe pick for small leagues, as usual, scored runs  in the pre-season intra-squad games and will be very popular captaincy choice. 

Lynn at Manuka Oval (batting first) : 2I, 89R, 50:1 

Lynn vs Thunder:  

Innings 14
Average 52.36
506 (his most in BBL) 

Batting first against Thunder: 3 fifties in 5 innings at an average of 61.75 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Sam Billings (batting first): Scored 90(45) in the practice game and is a very reliable choice, but his fantasy value will depend on where he bats and if he keeps or not. Even as a pure batsman adds a lot of value to your fantasy XI. Has not been dismissed so far by any bowler in the current Heat bowling lineup. 

Captaincy suitability: Mini GL & GL (or even SL depending on the two above mentioned factors) 

Alex Hales (batting first): Not in the same form that he was in, last season but has favourable matchups against this Heat lineup and has been dismissed just twice in 54 deliveries. 

Hales (batting first) at Manuka Oval: 

Innings 5
Average 39.4

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Other choices: 

Tanveer Sangha (bowling second): Mini GL & GL 

Jack Wildermuth (batting first): Mini GL & GL 

James Bazley: GL only. 

Nathan McAndrew (bowling second): GL only.
