This article is about the top three most important players in all eight teams in BBL 10.

To be eligible, a player must have played at least five matches in BBL 10. Find out who those players were.

Adelaide Strikers
3. Jake Weatherald averaged 36.08 runs per innings when batting – the most of any Adelaide Strikers player.

2. Alex Carey was a key part of the Adelaide Strikers’ team as he is a quality player. He was the first player to score a century in BBL 10.

1. Rashid Khan took 16 wickets in BBL 10. That’s despite the fact he only featured in ten matches. What was most impressive about Khan’s bowling was his economy rate of 6.87 runs per over.

Brisbane Heat
3. Jimmy Peirson proved what a quality player he is in the T20 format of the game. The wicketkeeper-batsman averaged the most of any Brisbane Heat batsman, with an average of 46.28.

2. Mitchell Swepson only played the six matches, as he was a part of the Australian Test squad. In those matches, he took nine wickets at an economy rate of 6.75.

1. Marnus Labuschange had a good BBL 10, despite only featuring in six matches due to international commitments. He took ten wickets and proved that he may be able to turn into an all-rounder. He had the third highest average of any Brisbane Heat batsman, with an average of 29.33 runs.
