    Dougie being a dopey Tard cost them the game, still can't believe how many length balls got bowled at the depth. Nothing beats a good Yorker at middle and leg.

    Sixers have probably the worst batting line up in the comp. You know your going shit when Silk is scoring all your runs.

    Good luck to the Scorchers,this 20/20 competition provides great entertainment.The only flaw with it is the absence of the players that are on national duty which is unfortunate.

    Wessels was actually pretty damn good in his first three or four games.

    Fitting end to a great tournament. Big Bash continues to entertain. More than happy to watch the domestic and fringe players as opposed to the established internationals. The players love it and it shows. For me, a BBL game is much more watchable than an international T20.

    I wonder if it was Laws decision to sign Flintoff, and that was one of the reasons he was given the flick?

    Flintoff was very good for the Heat in a PR sense. Doubt that was it.

    The Heat just didn't have the bowling arsenal required to threaten the top sides, and their over-reliance on Joe Burns and Chris Lynn to score their runs was exposed quite often.

    I wouldn't mind seeing expansion of the BBL within the next 3 years. The only concern I have is the depth of player talent because some fringe players are absolutely woeful for the current franchises. Canberra, Gold Coast and Cairns/Darwin for what's it worth.

    Some interesting player movement between the sides for the next BBL already. Sixers have picked up Jackson Bird and Johan Botha and the Stars have signed Ben Hilfenhaus. Sixers putting a pretty good side together their especially in the bowling department with Starc, Bird, Bollinger, Botha, O'Keefe and Lyon.

    Yea I believe so but the Sixers never mentioned him or abbott in their press release on bird perhaps their contracts are up.

    Perhaps they were signed to multi year deals already?

    Botha, O'Keefe and Lyon, quite a spin heavy side. I doubt they won't re-sign Lumb so I guess the addition of Botha means Wessels won't be returning.

    May also depend on the international schedule. Blokes like Haze may not be available, although I read on Bookface this morning that Clarkie may sign up for a team next season so you'd think the internationals maybe available,

    Yea you would expect one of Hazelwood or Starc to be in the test team, I hope Abbott goes back to the thunder and replace nannes make them a bit more competitive. Wessels was only signed as cover for Bopara so him not returning is not surprising thou a little disappointing. Clarke is supposed to be going to the stars apparently.
