BBL|09 Player of the Season candidates


Cameron Boyce

Matches: 14

Bowling: 14 wickets at 28.21, economy rate of 7.45, best of 4-15

Player of the Match:
V Brisbane Heat @ the Gabba, 19/01/2020

Story of the season: Boyce backed up a superb BBL|08 with another eye-catching season in red. He was one of only three Renegades to play in all 14 games, taking a season-high 14 wickets and producing the second best economy rate of any player who played in eight or more games. He spun the Renegades to a remarkable victory at over the Heat at the Gabba, capturing 4-15 including the prized wicket of AB de Villiers with just his second ball. Even on occasions when he found wickets hard to come by, Boyce rarely went for big runs and was rewarded for his efforts with selection in the CA XI that will face the England Lions in February.


Aaron Finch

Matches: 9

363 runs at 45.37, strike rate of 139.08, high score of 109*, 3x50s, 1x100

Player of the Match:
V Brisbane Heat @ Marvel Stadium, 27/01/2020

Story of the season:
One of the premier T20 players in the world, Finch was again pivotal in his ninth season as a Renegade. He made three half centuries and one huge ton against the Sydney Sixers in the penultimate match of the campaign, finishing third on the club’s run scoring tally despite missing five matches while in India captaining the Australian one day team. His 109 against the Sixers was his second Big Bash ton, and came off just 68 deliveries as he pounded the bowlers to all corners of the SCG. Finch capped off the season with a Player of the Match performance against the Heat, guiding the ‘Gades to a seven wicket victory by batting through the innings.


Sam Harper

Matches: 12

279 runs at 25.36, strike rate of 144.55, high score of 73, 2x50s

6 catches, 0 stumpings

Player of the Match:
V Sydney Thunder @ Manuka Oval, 15/01/2020

Story of the season:
A season that showcased Harper’s immense talent with bat and gloves came to a nasty end when he was concussed after an accidental mid-pitch collision with Hobart paceman Nathan Ellis. While he was forced to sit out the final two games of the season, it did not overshadow the work Harper had done at the top of the order. He regularly opened the batting, starting the season with an explosive 39 off just 19 balls against the Thunder in Geelong. Big hits were a feature of his campaign, slugging 10 sixes and 28 fours on the way to a season strike rate of 144.55, a record bettered only by Mohammad Nabi (160.00). Harper ended the season with two half centuries and a high score of 73, while he was named Player of the Match for his rapid 52 from 38 deliveries in his side’s first win of the year against the Thunder at Manuka Oval.


Shaun Marsh

Matches: 12

449 runs at 37.41, strike rate of 124.03, high score of 63, 3x50s

Story of the season:
One of the highest profile recruits of the off-season made every run count in BBL|09. Batting at the top of the order, Marsh was typically elegant on his way to 449 runs, finishing equal second alongside the Thunder’s Alex Hales and behind only Marcus Stoinis of the Stars (607) on the overall leaderboard. Marsh made three half centuries and was rarely dismissed without making a start. He made a season-high 63 in the loss to the Stars at Marvel Stadium, while his final innings of the tournament, 56 from just 30 balls against the Hurricanes in the Indigenous Match, was played while hampered by a hamstring injury that forced him to sit out the last two matches.


Kane Richardson

Matches: 8

10 wickets at 21.80, economy rate of 6.99, best of 4-22

Story of the season:
There are few more dependable bowlers in T20 cricket than Kane Richardson. With a miserly economy rate and a steady stream of wickets, the stats speak for themselves. It’s how he plays that matters just as much as the raw numbers. Steaming in at full pace, at the top or end of an innings, and always charging around the field with energy and a smile on his face, Richardson is one of the premier players in the Big Bash. He twice ended a match with a haul of four wickets, and was a big loss when he flew to India to represent Australia in three one dayers midway through the home summer.


Beau Webster

Matches: 14

425 runs at 42.50, strike rate of 131.98, high score of 67*, 3x50s

Story of the season:
One of the biggest improvers across the entire BBL competition. After featuring in just four matches last season, Webster came of age in BBL|09, plundering 425 runs from 14 matches, notching three half centuries at a rapid rate along the way. Batting in the middle order, Webster crunched a season-high 17 sixes, and showed great composure in regularly driving the ‘Gades to a competitive total. He would have had four half centuries, had he not been dismissed on 49 against the Adelaide Strikers. Only four players across the competition made more runs than Webster, who, having just turned 26, is coming into the prime of his career.
