Round 2 was the first round of head-to-head fixtures in BBL Fantasy with only 3 games being played before the Christmas break. Schon from SCHQ took out top honours this week, currently sitting at no. 1 in the league after scoring a big 627 points. The choice of captaining Henriques as well as picking Lumb and Rimmington, who both had big games, has paid handsome dividends for “The DoodleBugs”.
Jaycob, George and myself also started off with a win while Matt copped a tough draw, ending up only losing by 20 points while still managing to outscore most of the league. Expect to see a few teams load up on Brisbane Heat players for round 3 as they have the double-game round with the Melbourne Renegades having the bye.
Round 4 however will be the one to start preparing for as we see the Sixers, Renegades and Scorchers all play twice over the New Year period.
This next round of head-to-head action should spread the field a considerable amount with no. 1 ranked “DoodleBugs” up against no. 2 “Jaycob’s Fantasy”. George’s “Banter Brigade” will compete against Joseph’s “King Lizard Gizard” while Matt’s “Stoners” face Kyle’s “souldoubt”. Finally I will go up against fellow SCHQ writer Declan this week in what will be an interesting round of Big Bash Fantasy.
