For years, Abbott has been a standout performer for NSW, Australia, and the Sixers. The NSW all-rounder has been with the Sixers since the beginning of the BBL, taking 122 wickets in 90 innings at a decent average of 20.62, primarily bowling early in the power play. Abbott made his Royal Challengers Bangalore debut in 2015, but only appeared in two games for the organisation.

Abbott collected 16 wickets at an average of 17.81 in only 10 games this season, despite missing games after skipping Australia A tour versus England to be with his spouse for their newborn. With 122 wickets, the 29-year-old leads Kane Richardson, AJ Tye, and Ben Laughlin for most BBL wickets ever.

The Hurricanes' top-order batsman has been the star player of BBL11, becoming the first player in the contest's history to hit back-to-back hundreds. McDermott hit 571 runs for an average of 51.91, including three fifty-run innings and two hundreds. Remarkably, the swashbuckling batters struck at a whopping 153.49 percent strike rate. If that's not enough to entice a franchise to sign him, he also holds the position of wicketkeeper. Until Glenn Maxwell's 154 in the final BBL match of the regular season, legend Andrew Symonds hailed McDermott's 127 off 65 balls as "the best Big Bash innings that has ever been played." McDermott, who has already played 17 times for Australia, is vying for a spot in the T20 squad for the 2022 World Cup.

This tournament, the swashbuckling Western Australian opener has been on fire, finishing third in batting with 424 runs at 35.33. After being signed by Royal Challengers Bangalore last season, Phillipe withdrew of the 2021 IPL for personal matters.

With three ODIs and ten T20s under his belt, the 24-year-old has established himself as one of Australia's best short-form hitters.

In a critical pursuit early in BBL11, the rising star smashed a magnificent 99 not out against the Stars, and has been vital in steering his team to second place.

Munro has been a standout performer for the Scorchers, a reliable top-order power for the Western Australian team.

In only 11 innings this season, the former New Zealand international has scored 377 runs at a 47.12 average.

The 34-year-old hit 114* while carrying the bat against the Strikers in early December, guiding the Scorchers to a massive total of 1-195.

Munro formerly played for the Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals, featuring in 13 games in three seasons between 2016 and 2019.

Munro struggled, making 177 runs at an average of 14.75, a far cry from his recent BBL form.

While batting, the New Zealander employs a basic way of staying very still in order to strike the ball as cleanly as possible, and this new approach has certainly paid off for him, as he now averages 129.11 at the top of the order.

After not being included in the starting XI at the start of the campaign, Jason Sangha has been a revelation for the Thunder.

After Chris Green was a close contact of a positive Covid case on January 8, the 22-year-old ran drinks for two seasons before getting the call-up, and he was stand-in skipper in a matter of weeks.

Sangha scored 384 runs at an average of 48 in only 11 games, including a magnificent 91* against the Strikers in a game marred by Covid-19 instances.

After Kerry O'Keeffe labelled him "feral" when he got his stride, the young and talented had a breakout season in BBL11 and might be a superb buy for an IPL side.

In BBL11, Henriques has been at his best with the bat, currently sitting in sixth place on the leaderboard.

The 34-year-old batted.447 with a 44.78 batting average, frequently coming in and smashing sixes right away.

Henriques has previously played for a number of IPL franchises and made his IPL debut in 2009.

His record is respectable, with 1000 runs scored in 62 games at a 27.78 average while still bowling, which he hasn't done much of in recent seasons.

Henriques was signed to a hefty $745,000 deal by the Punjab Kings in last year's auction.

The dashing batter slept through the auction and awoke to find that he had been purchased, which was amusing.

If he puts his name down after his BBL11 performances, it's safe to presume he'll be picked up by a team for the upcoming season.
