Just two matches now remain in the Big Bash with the Heat, Sixers and Scorchers all still ready to lift the silverware at Optus Stadium this weekend.

With all the group matches now complete though the Top Edge Podcast team picked their best elevens of the tournament up until the end of the group stages.

While Steve Smith would have been an obvious choice for his two centuries, unfortunately with him playing just a handful of games he was ineligible for our sides while he has still managed to make the official KFC BBL12 team of the tournament.

A major theme of all of the teams in the tournaments is a severe lack of international players. Only Luke Wood made Callum's side amongst the different selectors.

The lack of internationals probably suggests that the quality of international players that the BBL has brought in wasn't that good. And the really good ones just weren't around the tournament for long enough to make a major difference.

The good news though is that new players such as Paddy Dooley and Matt Short are bursting onto the Australian scene and with a World Cup just a couple of years away it's time to start looking at the future.

Chris Lynn is the major difference between the selections from the Top Edge hosts and the BBL official side. However with more than 400 runs before going off to Dubai, Lynn had a great season and if it wasn't for going to Dubai he probably would have played a big part in the Strikers getting to the finals.

Ollie Davies is also a point of difference between the sides. However with more than 400 runs at a good strike rate in a team that didn't do all that well, to begin with, he's a real talent that needs to be looked after, fostered and given opportunities. His time in an Australian shirt will come sooner rather than later.

Of course, you can hear the full discussion about these teams on the Top Edge Podcast, and while you're there give the show a rating and review on your favourite podcast platform.
