The 11th edition of the Big Bash League (BBL) has just completed its course. Despite being a pandemic hit, the tournament left no stone unturned to fulfill its fixtures. Just like the WBBL, it was eventually the Perth Scorchers who won the trophy for the record fourth time defeating the Sydney Sixers.
Overall, despite the unavailability of big giants, BBL 11 witnessed some mind-boggling gigs from its local players. Even the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Ben McDermott were found producing back to back tons for their teams.
Hence in this list, let’s check out the best XI of the BBL 2021-22.
1. Ben McDermott (wk)
Well, BBL 11 for Ben McDermott was nothing short of bliss. The Hobart Hurricanes opener was found to have a ball of a time throughout the entire season. By eventually topping all the run charts, McDermott was also rewarded the Player of the Tournament medal.
In terms of his performances, the 27-year old played 13 games scoring 577 runs at an average of 48.08. His impressive strike rate of 153.87 also empowered him to smash most sixes in the tournament (29). Even his two three-digit scores helped McDermott to attain his best ever BBL season to date.
Overall, the truckload of runs has also effectively paved the gloveman’s way into Australia’s T20I squad. Very soon in the absence of David Warner, McDermott will pair with Aaron Finch in the home T20Is against Sri Lanka.
