News – The present arrived a week late, but it was worth the wait.
- It had seemed certain Lynn, who averaged 71 points per game to Round 5 and scored a season-high 126 in Round 4 against Sydney Sixers, would be unavailable for at least one game of Brisbane Heat’s Round 6 double.
- Lynn’s ownership has dropped slightly from Round 1, presumably as coaches prepared for his likely selection in the one-day squad.
- Aaron Finch will captain the Australian ODI side and therefore miss one game of Round 6, when Melbourne Renegades share the double with Brisbane Heat.
- When the Australian team is called into camp will decide the availability of popular picks including Stoinis, Maxwell, Jason Behrendorff and Jhye Richardson for Round 6.
- That will be the last round English trio Joe Denly (Sixers), Jos Buttler and Joe Root (Thunder) will be available before heading to the West Indies for a Test series.
