    Despite taking more wickets than anyone else in BBL06 Sean Abbott missed selection

    He took 20 wickets, The next best was Mark Steketee with 15

    Trevor Hohns said he wasn't selected due to his economy rate of 8.73 but when you look at Sean's Economy rate compared to the other bowlers selected it makes no sense

    Only 2 of the other bowlers went for less than 7 an over and only 1 of them got more than 10 wickets

    The most effective way to stem runs and lower an oppositions run rate is to take regular wickets so I would have selected him no hesitation

    This is almost as good as Rod Marsh telling Jackson Bird he wasn't selected for the test team because of his batting lol

    Sean Abbott - 20 wickets at 8.73 rpo
    Pat Cummins - 7 wickets at 9.22 rpo
    Jhye Richardson - 11 wickets at 8.54 rpo
    Billy Stanlake - 6 wickets at 6.98 rpo
    Ashton Turner - 5 wickets at 7.5 rpo
    Andrew Tye - 7 wickets at 7.15 rpo
    Adam Zampa - 5 wickets at 6.47 rpo
    James Faulkner - 1 wicket at 7.42 rpo

    Also surprised that Ben Dunk (who was the leading run scorer in BBL06) wasn't selected

    He scored 364 runs at an average of 52 with a strike rate of 163.96 and took 4 catches

    Dunk and Abbott finished equal 2nd in the voting for player of the tournament which was won by Chris Lynn

    The Aussie selectors are smoking some seriously strong crack. Some of their recent selections are off the planet.
