The Big Bash is one of the most popular T20 tournaments in the world with followers from as far away as South Africa and India, and Cricket Australia are looking to cash into that healthy support even more from the 2017-18 season of the tourney. The regular matches to be played in the calendar of the Big Bash is being increased from 32 games to an attractive 40 games.
The league is also looking to host some matches in locales outside the usual domain of the league, making foreign destinations a possibility in the near future.
This season’s Big Bash League will kick-start on December 18 and will go all the way up to the first week of February. The semi-finals of the tournament will be played on February 1 and 2 while the grand finale will be held on February 4 – the first time ever a BBL knock-out stage has been held in the month.
Here’s the Big Bash League schedule for 2017-18.
The good news for the fans of the Big Bash League is that the tournament will go on as scheduled. Earlier there were fears the BBL could have had taken a hit because of the contractual dispute between the board and the players but that issue has now been sorted out.
With talent from all around the world shaping up to replace the old guard in all forms of the game cricket is seeing a drastic overhaul of the national set ups across the world allowing a club mentality to permeate the game like it does so well in football. The Big Bash League which will be in its seventh edition this year is one of the front-runners of this very movement (and you can watch the BBL live streaming here)
If the 2016-17 season was anything to go by we would be tempted to discuss the Perth Scorchers and the Sydney Sixers as possible challengers for the title this year again but the league table for the previous season shows that Sydney actually had a negative Net Run Rate and still made it to the final based on their performances in the knockout rounds so we can never say too much.

A look at the top performers of the 2016-17 season would not be amiss in this regard as it would give us a fuller picture of the possibilities in the future.
The Perth Scorchers in particular look like a squad that could match up to and beat any team with the likes of Shaun Marsh, Adam Voges and Ashton Turner suiting up in their strip. Their smart acquisitions are one of the major reasons why the Scorchers are the league’s most successful team with three trophies in only six iterations of the Big Bash.
The Sydney Sixers went to the Big Bash final last season on the strength of their bowling which included top wicket taker Sean Abbott who ended the season with 20 wickets at an average of 16.15 and a marginally uncomfortable economy rate of 8.72.
His best figures were five for 16 in the game against the Adelaide Strikers on the last day of 2016. A similar run from him this season would make them fight harder for the title, especially after their history of competitiveness. Sydney Sixers won the inaugural title of the Big Bash T20 in Perth, upsetting a load of Scorchers fans.
