Tim David had a modest tournament with the bat last edition. In 14 innings, he has scored 218 runs at an average of 24.22 with a strike rate of 163.9.
Top Pick – All-Rounder
Shadab Khan is a renowned all-rounder in this format of the game. He brings more balance to the side with his all-round abilities and is a gun fielder too. He is a good buy for your fantasy teams.
Top Pick – Bowler
Nathan Coulter-Nile was impeccable in the last game against Sydney Thunder where he picked up 3 wickets by giving away only 19 runs in his 4 overs.
Top Pick – Wicketkeeper
Ben McDermott was simply outstanding with the bat last season. He ended up as the leading run-scorer with 577 runs in 13 matches at an average of 48.08 which includes 2 centuries and 3 half-centuries.
D’Arcy Short played a different role for the Hurricanes in the last season where he batted at a strike rate of 113.26 which is relatively less for his standards. Overall in 15 matches, he has notched 444 runs at an average of 37 and even picked up 5 wickets.
What are the fantasy suggested teams for STA vs HUR, BBL 2022/23, Match 4?

Melbourne Stars fought like warriors defending the lowest score of 122 runs against Sydney Thunder however unfortunately lost the game on the final ball which went for byes. Earlier their batters played loose strokes which resulted in settling for a marginal score. Credit to the bowlers as they bowled with a lot of heart with Nathan Coulter Nile standing out, picking up 3 wickets. Trent Boult who played his first BBL game chipped in with 2 wickets. They have an advantage here as they play in front of their home crowd.
Hobart Hurricanes have revamped the side for this season by signing Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, and Jimmy Neesham as their overseas players. Matthew Wade will again take charge of the side, with Ben McDermott and Nathan Ellis named vice-captains. They were knocked in the Eliminator by Adelaide Strikers last season by 22 runs. Ben McDermott was remarkable with the bat, scoring 577 runs. D’Arcy Short and Matthew Wade too had a good outing. Pakistan star Shadab Khan is a value-added addition to the side who creates magic with his all-round prowess. Asif Ali has been included for his finishing abilities.
