The Victorian Bushrangers – a semi finalist in the CLT 20 edition 1, they have been completely depleted this time round. They are in this edition thanks to being the winners of the KFC Big Bash – the domestic T20 tournament in
. A repeat of their performance in the Inaugural edition of CLT20 is more than what is being expected of the team. Australia
The team has lost its captain Cameron White and one of its imports, Dwayne Bravo to Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians respectively. Another of its imports, Ross Taylor, has also been picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore.
But, they still have classy T20 players in David Hussey, their captain, Brad Hodge, the man with the most runs in this format, and Dirk Nannes, the quintessential fast bowler with a great brain.
They are slao talented local players who’ve proved themselves on the International arena like Bryce McGain, Clint McKay, Shane Harwood, Aaron Finch, and Peter Siddle. Siddle will partner Nannes in what will be a very good new ball partnership.
Matthew Wade, the guy anointed to be Gilly’s successor, is a brutal hitter of the ball and also doubles up as a keeper. Hence, the team gets more balance and can accommodate the extra bowler.
