Big Bash League 2023-24


Big Bash League 2023-24

The 2023-2024 Big Bash League season is shortened from the usual 60+ match campaign down to just 44 games. The trimmed structure features 40 round-robin ties and 4 playoff clashes rather than the multiple games between some opponents previously.

Cricket Australia announced the condensed schedule to allow greater fixture flexibility catering to clubs and fans. The refined format also aims to reduce demands on star multi-format male players active in international cricket.

While the men’s BBL 13 trims down, the 59-match Women’s Big Bash league remains unchanged continuing to drive growth in women’s cricket through its expanded model.

The refined men’s BBL 2023/24 structure looks to strike an optimal balance between fan engagement via must-see contests and player workload in a crowded calendar. Get ready for a tighter and even more intense competition between Australia’s T20 franchises.

The 2023-2024 Big Bash League campaign will kick off on December 7th featuring defending champions Perth Scorchers and the 7 other franchises. Cricket Australia released the new-look BBL schedule comprised of 44 total fixtures.

The adjusted format reduces each club’s head-to-head contests but still includes a double round-robin league phase. After 40 games between the teams, a top 4 will qualify for knockout semi-finals and finals.

Squads can now sign 6 overseas players in their 18-man rosters rather than just 2 imports previously. This should amplify the world-class talent on display. Broadcast partners remain Seven Network and Foxtel.

While condensed, the BBL 13 fixture retains the glitz, gloss and exhilarating atmosphere the Big Bash is loved for each Australian summer. With international stars supplemented by emerging local talent, another thrill-ride awaits!


BBL List of Captains Names

These established T20 superstars will lead their respective franchises as BBL 13 gets underway in December. Most captains are key batter/keepers batting in the top order. Each club blends these stars with rising talents and overseas recruits in well-balanced XIs.

Big Bash League Past Winners List

The Big Bash League (BBL) was founded in 2011 by Cricket Australia as Australia’s professional Twenty20 cricket competition. Originally named the Twenty20 Big Bash, it was rebranded the Big Bash League after the inaugural 2011-12 season.

Since then, the BBL has developed into one of the premier T20 leagues globally. It features city-based franchise teams packed with domestic and international stars playing fast-paced, high-scoring cricket each Australian summer.

After a decade of growth, the BBL now draws over a million spectators each season alongside strong broadcast viewership. The league provides a platform for emerging Aussie talent to thrive alongside T20 superstars from across the cricketing world.

Big Bash 2023 TV Schedule

The 2023-2024 Big Bash League campaign begins on December 7th, overlapping the men’s Australian Test squad series against India. Lasting almost two months, the eighth edition of the BBL T20 tournament will feature top-tier domestic and global T20 talent across the eight franchises.

Seven Network and Fox Cricket have broadcasting rights in Australia, showcasing every match live for fans. Internationally, the tournament also attracts strong viewership as one of the world’s premier T20 leagues.

Leading Australian white-ball cricketers will form the core of BBL teams this season. They will be supplemented by overseas player signings like Rashid Khan (Adelaide Strikers), Liam Livingstone (Melbourne Renegades) and Jason Roy (Perth Scorchers) among others.

Fresh off lifting the T20 World Cup trophy, Australia’s T20 stars will look to bring that success into the Big Bash after it eluded them last season.
