We are heading into the business end of the Big Bash League 2020-21 and Round 9 of BBL SuperCoach is already upon us. Each team will play one game this round, which starts with the match between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars on January 11.

At the end of Round 8, Sydney Sixers top the charts courtesy Dan Christian's heroic efforts which led them to a thrilling last-ball victory over Brisbane Heat on January 10. Christian scored an unbeaten 38-ball 61 that helped his side chase down 149 to win the game by just one wicket.

The Sixers are at the top with 25 points and are followed by the Sydney Thunder and the Hobart Hurricanes who've got 23 and 19 points respectively. At the bottom of the pile are Aaron Finch's Melbourne Renegades who have accumulated just nine points.

The table could very well change though given that just four points separate five teams from third to seventh. The tournament has started heating up, and all the teams are still in the contest to secure a playoffs spot.

Who scored the most points in Round 8?

Sam Billings
Sam Billings

Sam Billings, the Sydney Thunder's wicket-keeper, was the highest points-scorer in Round 8 of BBL SuperCoach having earned a total of 174 points.

The flamboyant Englishman was the top scorer in Thunder's game against Perth Scorchers.

Chasing a mammoth 186 for victory, Thunder were in dire straits after being reduced to 46-4 inside the first six overs.

However, Sam Billings took matters into his own hands and began rebuilding the Thunder's innings. He was joined by Ben Cutting and the duo shared an important 83-run stand.

But eventually the target proved to be a little too much and despite Billings getting them pretty close, his 48-ball 83 was simply not enough to propel his side to a victory as they fell short by 17 runs in the end.

Which players should be traded in and out for Round 9?

BBL SuperCoach allows a maximum of three trades to be made per week. Here are Sportskeeda's suggested trades for Round 6 of the competition.

Players to trade out:

Shaun Marsh (Melbourne Renegades): $111,500

Sam Harper (Melbourne Renegades): $119,600

Daniel Worrall (Adelaide Strikers): $150,500

Players to trade in:

Jack Wildermuth (Brisbane Heat): $149,400

Nicholas Pooran (Melbourne Stars): $116,000

Ben Doggett (Sydney Thunder): $87,900

Shaun Marsh is unavailable for selection as he has travelled to Perth for the birth of his third child. Therefore he has been traded out and Melbourne Star's hard-hitting southpaw, Nicholas Pooran, has been brought in his place.

Moreover, the Stars play two games in the next round and therefore Pooran's inclusion would benefit the team even more.

The Renegades wicket-keeper Sam Harper has been left out after a string of poor performances and Brisbane Heat's Jack Wildermuth has been included for his all-round capabilities.

Daniel Worrall has not played a game since January 3rd and therefore he has been left out too. Ben Doggett has been brought in his place as he picked up an impressive 4 wicket-haul on debut and has also shown glimpses of his ability with bat in hand.
