KFC Supercoach BBL Fantasy: Best fantasy team for Round 13

Can Tim David
Can Tim David's pyrotechnics take the Hurricanes into the playoffs?

The final four group-stage fixtures of the Big Bash League 22/23 will begin with the Hobart Hurricanes-Sydney Sixers clash on Monday (January 23). It's also the 13th and final round of this edition of the KFC Supercoach BBL Fantasy since the playoffs won't be included in the game.

With both the Brisbane Heat and the Perth Scorchers playing twice in Round 12, it was a fairly high-scoring one. While my captain and vice-captain choices didn't exactly return scores as high as expected, the presence of nine doublers in the starting XI helped to a good score.

In the final round, the Hobart Hurricanes will play twice while the Perth Scorchers blank.

Deadline for Trade ahead of HOB-SYD6: 01:45 pm (IST), 07:15 pm (local), 08:15 am (GMT)

Note: The suggested team is subject to change depending on the toss or other unexpected team news. Any such changes will be updated for the next round of BBL.

Ahead of Round 13 which is the last of the group stage, I have used the transfer boost to allow me to make one extra transfer. All four of my transfers see players from the Hobart Hurricanes come in since they play twice in this round. The Perth Scorchers will be blanking in this round, and as a result, I've removed the most expensive players from the Scorchers who were present in my team.

I already brought in Matthew Wade from the Hurricanes last week with Round 13 in mind. Joining him will be the in-form Tim David, Riley Meredith, Faheem Ashraf, and Caleb Jewell. Nathan Ellis has been a constant presence in my team for quite a while now, and he's also one of my captaincy candidates for this Round.

The Hurricanes haven't been at their best this season, but they're a win away from moving into the playoffs spots. Matthew Short, Sean Abbott, and James Bazley are the other notable names without a double in my starting XI for Round 13.

Captaincy Picks

As mentioned earlier, Nathan Ellis is one of my top choices for the captaincy. However, the destructive Tim David and Caleb Jewell also catch my eye.
