5 Players to Watch Out For in BBL09 | Best Young Players to Watch Out For in BBL09 | Big Bash League 2019/20

The Big Bash League is one of the best franchise T20 leagues in the world. This season, the addition of AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn, along with many big T20 names, such as, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell and Rashid Khan will take part, creating plenty of excitement.

But, here we look at five players that are not known to everyone, but have the potential to create a buzz in the world cricket community. From Sydney to Perth, here are five young players to watch out for in BBL09.

Tanveer Sangha (Sydney Thunder)

We originally had Oliver Davies as a player to watch. However, he is out for the first few weeks with an arm injury.

But, there is another player to watch from the Sydney Thunder. 18-year old leg-spinner Tanveer Sangha has been superb in Sydney Grade cricket in recent times, to go with his 11 wickets in five outings for Australia U19s earlier in 2019. With Fawad Ahmed having left the Thunder, Sangha is one to watch out for.

2. Jake Fraser-Mcgurk (Melbourne Renegades)

What were you doing when you were 17? 

Jake Fraser-McGurk made his First-Class and List A debut for Victoria on 12th and 17th November 2019 respectively. He scored 54 and 41* in his two List A games, with the latter innings sealing an incredible tie for Victoria against South Australia. This proves he has what it takes to bat in crunch situations for his team.

Being selected for the BBL just under a month since his debut shows the talent and quality he possesses. He has been picked by Melbourne Renegades for this year’s BBL and is indeed a player to watch out for.

Jake Fraser-McGurk is a great prospect.

Cameron Green (Perth Scorchers)

Ricky Ponting said that Cameron Green has the potential to be a great all-rounder for Australia. So, that alone tells you he has something.

He is scoring runs for fun in First Class Cricket. His last few scores are 126, 86, 87* and 121 and he has picked 28 wickets in 11 matches. This shows that he is a consistent performer and can help Scorchers lift another BBL trophy.

Unfortunately, though, he will be unable to bowl for sometime due to a stress fracture in his back. However, with his batting form so strong, the Scorchers will be wise to utilise his talents.

Cameron Green has had an outstanding season to date.

Zak Evans (Melbourne Renegades)

19-year-old fast bowler Zak Evans, from Victoria, is another star in the making. He is known to generate some extra pace and is performing very well in U19 and U23 matches. He has picked up 26 wickets in the last seven matches across U19 and U23, with 6/44 his best figures

Playing for Renegades in this BBL he can make everyone talk about him. He, with the likes of Shinwari, can make a very good pace bowling attack for last year’s champions.

Zak Evans is another excellent pace-bowling prospect.

Matt Kelly (Perth Scorchers)

Matt Kelly is a very exciting bowler to watch out for. He possesses good pace, and his yorkers can make any cricket fan jump from their seat. He took 11 wickets from seven matches in the last BBL season, with an average of 19 and strike rate of 14.70. His economy of 7.74 is very good in the shortest format of the game, particularly considering he bowls at the death.

Part of the Kolkata Knight Riders’ squad in IPL 2019, Kelly could become a very important part of the famous Scorchers fast bowling attack and can go through any batting line-up on his day.
