Thoughts on the upcoming draft and season?
 
Munro picked first

Melie Kerr and Bess Heath (Eng) are 1 and 2 for the girls.

Sadly Jess Kerr is at the Sixers
 
Sam Billings is pick 2 for the Heat
 
Makes sense to repeat them 2. Pretty reliable and we made the GF with them both probably playing as bad as they have in their years of big bash so far. Can feel a bowler or all rounder getting picked here.
 
Why the **** would you go with him.
 
1. Colin Munro
2. Usman Khawaja (C)
3. Sam Billings
4. Matt Renshaw
5. Marnus Labuschagne
6. Jimmy Peirson (WK)
7. Michael Neser
8. Paul Walter
9. Spencer Johnson
10. Matt Kuhnemann
11. Mitch Swepson

With Brown, Bartlett, McSweeney, Bryant, Prestwidge and 2 domestic players more to be signed the side is looking pretty good if they can perform. Either of Swepson or Kuhnemann could very easily fall out of the side for Bartlett depending on form and the pitch.

Hopefully there is good availability for the international boys but unlikely to have them for the business ends of the season.
 
The Wilderbeest is back at the Heat this season
 
Tick off two with one there. Wildermuth is great squad depth and if he manages to find form (which I doubt) he can be a top level player.
 
Someone’s back for the Heat. Announced tomorrow. My guess is Tom
Banton for when one of the INT’s leaves (fingers crossed).

England don’t have any test cricket till the end of Jan so Baz may be coming on as a coach if some sort. AB won’t be playing and doesn’t really have enough attachment to the club to come be an assistant coach on the other side of the world over christmas.

Can’t really see anybody else getting the he’s back post on socials apart from Lynn but he is re-signed. Ben McDermott would/could but he is locked in down in Hobart for now and he wouldn’t get a release this late on. We don’t have a domestic spot left anyways.
 
I just saw that Bazley is no longer with the Heat.

Felt it was pretty obvious it was Rocket Man haha
