Best XI: Marcus Stoinis, Andre Fletcher (OS), Nicholas Pooran (OS), Glenn Maxwell, Nic Maddinson, Hilton Cartwright, Seb Gotch (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Zahir Khan (OS), Billy Stanlake
Verdict: Stars have misplaced 5 semi-finals and three finals. Last season seemed prefer it was going to be there yr after they received the group however they collapsed spectacularly. Losing gun gamers like Rauf and Lamichhane and nonetheless utilizing Maddison suggests that is an inferior classic. At the chances, it’s arduous to not come to the conclusion that their greatest likelihood has gone.
Squad: Ashton Agar, Fawad Ahmed, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Joe Clarke (ENG), Cameron Gannon, Cameron Green, Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis, Matthew Kelly, Liam Livingstone (ENG), Mitchell Marsh (c), Colin Munro (NZ), Joel Paris, Kurtis Patterson, Jhye Richardson, Jason Roy (ENG), Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Sam Whiteman

Best XI: Josh Inglis (wk), Jason Roy, Colin Munro, Liam Livingstone, Mitch Marsh (c), Ashton Turner, Ashton Agar, AJ Tye, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff, Fawad Ahmed
Verdict: Scorchers are all the craze due to their diversified and deep bowling assault. They additionally tick containers for quick starters and finishers with the bat within the form of Mitch Marsh and Ashton Turner. But have they got a difficulty at quantity eight with the bat? AJ Tye is a spot too excessive.

Best XI: Jake Weatherald, Phil Salt, Travis Head (c), Matt Renshaw, Alex Carey (wk), Jon Wells, Michael Neser, Rashid Khan, Peter Siddle, Wes Agar, Danny Briggs
Verdict: We aren’t eager on Strikers for glory, not least as a result of they’re prone to be with out Rashid Khan for the finals. The batting does not look sturdy sufficient and there may be stress on Phil Salt for quick begins. But they’ve a cracking report when defending totals.
Squad: Scott Boland, Johan Botha*, Tim David, Jake Doran, Nathan Ellis, James Faulkner, Peter Handscomb, Colin Ingram (SA), Will Jacks (ENG), Caleb Jewell*, Sandeep Lamichhane (NEP), Dawid Malan (ENG), Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, David Moody, Mitch Owen, Tim Paine, Wil Parker, Keemo Paul (WI), D’Arcy Short, Matthew Wade (c), Charlie Wakim*, Nick Winter, Mac Wright

Best XI: Matthew Wade, D’Arcy Short, Dawid Malan, Ben McDermott, Peter Handscomb, Mac Wright, Keemo Paul, James Faulkner, Sandeep Lamichhane, Riley Meredith, Nathan Ellis
Verdict: Wade’s absence, Lamichhane’s Covid analysis and the delayed arrival of Malan may make for a difficult begin however they need to get well to qualify. In the play-offs there are few higher balanced XIs they usually may go very near a primary title. Colin INgram (beneath) can also be a shrewd seize.
Squad: Aaron Finch (c), Noor Ahmad (OS), Cameron Boyce, Zak Evans, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Sam Harper, Marcus Harris, Mackenzie Harvey, Jon Holland, Josh Lalor, Shaun Marsh, Mohammad Nabi (OS), James Pattinson, Mitch Perry, Jack Prestwidge, Kane Richardson, Rilee Roussow (OS), Will Sutherland, Imran Tahir (OS), Imad Wasim (OS), Beau Webster, Benny Howell (OS)

Squad: Dan Lawrence (OS), Max Bryant, Chris Lynn, Tom Cooper, Lewis Gregory (OS), Sam Heazlett, Jimmy Peirson, Jack Wildermuth, Mujeeb Ur Rahman (OS), Morne Morkel, Ben Laughlin, Matt Kuhnemann, Xavier Bartlett, Matt Willians, James Bazley

Best XI: Bryant, Lynn, Lawrence (OS), Cooper, Gregory, Heazlett, Peirson, Wildermuth, Laughlin, Morkel, Mujeeb
Verdict: The least balanced squad within the match. Heat are unlikely to have to fret in regards to the vagaries of the play-offs with a bowling line-up which has persistently struggled and has now misplaced Josh Lalor and James Pattinson. Morne Morkel as a ‘residence’ participant is a lift however aside from quick begins with Chris Lynn there’s little to be enthusiastic about.
Squad: Sam Billings (England), Jonathan Cook, Ben Cutting, Oliver Davies, Brendan Doggett, Callum Ferguson (c), Matt Gilkes, Chris Green, Alex Hales (England), Baxter Holt, Usman Khawaja, Nathan McAndrew, Adam Milne (NZ), Arjun Nair, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Jason Sangha, Tanveer Sangha, Chris Tremain

Best XI: Alex Hales, Usman Khawaja, Callum Ferguson, Sam Billings, Alex Ross, Ben Cutting, Daniel Sams, Chris Green, Adam Milne, Chris Tremain, Jono Cook

They are gentle on huge names however that solely places off the ignorant. Key will probably be Chris Green and Jono Cook.
