The Big Bash League, the premier Australia T20 competition, is in its 10th edition in 2020/21 and has a rather rich history. It features eight city-based franchises. It was the first major T20 franchise league since the Indian Premier League when it launched in 2011/12.

The Big Bash League matches are played in the months of December, January and February. Of the eight teams, six teams have won a title in the first nine years showcasing the kind of strength each has in this competition. The Perth Scorchers are the most successful franchise in the BBL, winning the title thrice.

What are some records from the BBL?

The BBL has seen several records over the years. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Marcus Stoinis recorded the highest individual score by a player in the league when he made 147* in 79 balls for the Melbourne Stars against Sydney Sixers in early 2020. 
  • Lasith Malinga, the Sri Lanka player, playing in an overseas slot for the Melbourne Stars recorded the best-ever figures in BBL when he took 6 for seven against Perth Scorchers in 2012. The only other bowler to record a six-wicket haul in the league is Ish Sodhi, the Black Caps spinner, who took for 6/11 for Adelaide Strikers in 2017. 
  • The 223/8 by Hurricanes against the Melbourne Renegades in 2017 is the highest score recorded in BBL. Hurricanes had chased down the highest total set by Renegades (222) in that game.
  • In 2015, the Renegades were bowled out for 57 by the Stars, the lowest total recorded in Big Bash League history.
  • Jimmy Pierson of the Brisbane Heat has recorded 40 dismissals as wicket-keeper, the most by any player in the league’s history. 
  • Stoinis and Hilton Cartwright put up a partnership of 207 against Sixers in 2020, the highest partnership recorded in BBL. 

Big Bash League – Rule Changes

The competition had received flak for failing to maintain crowds and interest with long seasons and lack of international cricketers from Australia itself. In order to spice up the competition, the bat flip replaced the toss a couple of seasons ago. In the 2020/21 edition of the Big Bash League, there are quite a lot more changes with rules modified to spike interest. Let’s look at the rule changes for the 2020/21 edition.

Overseas players: Instead of the usual two overseas players allowed in a playing XI, franchises can now choose upto three overseas players in the final team. With more international talent, it is expected that the competition becomes more watchable.

Power Surge – The mandatory powerplay at the beginning of an innings is now made into just four overs instead of the customary six followed in T20 competitions. The remaining two-over slab can be used when the batting team desires. However, it is to be noted that the batting side can use this two-over slab only after the 11th over of the innings. The fielding restrictions will follow that of the powerplay.

X-factor Player – It’s basically the ‘super-sub’ rule that was tried in international cricket a few years back. The X-factor player can be anyone outside the XI named as one of the first 13 players before the start of a game. The 12th or 13th player in the team can be substituted for another player post the halfway point in the first innings. He can only replace a player who is yet to bat, or hasn’t bowled more than one over.

Bash Boost – A bonus point is awarded to a team that wins the 10-over mark battle. Whoever scores more in the first 10 overs will now get an additional bonus point irrespective of the result of the game. 

Big Bash League

The Big Bash League has followed a very similar pattern in terms of formats over the years. While the inaugural season had 28 group games, since then it’s been 32 matches in the group phase. Since 2018/19, this moved up to 56 games with each team playing the other twice like in the Indian Premier League.

Team Pld Won Lost Tied N/R Net RR Pts
1 Sydney Sixers 11 8 3 0 0 0.554 32
2 Perth Scorchers 11 6 4 0 1 0.974 24
3 Melbourne Stars 12 5 6 0 1 0.24 24
4 Sydney Thunder 11 6 5 0 0 0.919 23
5 Hobart Hurricanes 11 6 5 0 0 -0.117 23
6 Brisbane Heat 11 5 6 0 0 -0.126 21
7 Adelaide Strikers 11 5 6 0 0 -0.205 20
8 Melbourne Renegades 12 3 9 0 0 -1.964 13

The regular semi-final and final structure stood for a good many years with the four top teams after the league stage qualifying to the semis. This structure was changed in 2019/20. 

It added an extra team to the next stage where the fourth and fifth team met in an eliminator. The first and second placed teams play the qualifier with the winner going through to the final. The knockout had the third-placed team playing the winner of the eliminator.

The Challenger round then has the winner of the knockout playing the loser of the qualifier. The final will then be between the winner of the Challenger and the winner of the qualifier. This way, the standings in the league stage becomes important. The first amd second placed team has a distinct advantage in that they can directly get to the finals by winning the qualifier.

The points system is pretty straightforward. The winning team will get 2 points. If there is a washout or the match is abandoned for some reason, the points are split (1 each) by the two teams. If a match ends in a tie, the customary Super Over decides the winner and the winning side gets the whole two points.

The Bash Boost also factors in the bonus point. So the winner of the 10-over mark gets an additional one point from this season. So the maximum points a team can get from a fixture is now three.

BBL Players

The Big Bash League has had its fair share of superstars over the years. The Australian side has benefitted from a lot of them, but the Big Bash itself has enjoyed their services to serve the fans.

  • Chris Lynn – The highest run-scorer in the league’s history with 2352 runs, Chris Lynn has been a Brisbane Heat faithful, having played for them since the beginning of his Big Bash League career. Lynn has one hundred and 18 fifties and has hit 147 sixes in the league’s history, the most by any player.
  • Aaron Finch – The current Australia limited-overs skipper, Aaron Finch is the only batsman other than Lynn to make over 2000 runs in the competition. Finch has been with the Melbourne Renegades since the beginning and is their captain. He has two centuries and 18 fifties.
  • Glenn Maxwell – A superstar all-rounder like no other, Maxwell is the fifth highest run-scorer in the league’s history while also being an outstanding fielder and a handy bowler with his off-breaks. Often used as a powerplay bowler, Maxwell’s real value is his strike-rate with the bat, a whopping 150.47. Maxwell has plied his trade with the Melbourne franchises, the Renegades and now the Stars whom he skippers.
  • Marcus Stoinis – Another superstar all-rounder, Marcus Stoinis has the sixth most runs in BBL history with 1802 runs including the highest individual score in the competition – a 147*, his only hundred in the Big Bash League.
  • Shaun Marsh – A Perth Scorchers star in the initial few years, Shaun Marsh made runs in bucket loads for the franchise. He shifted base to Melbourne Renegades this season and began with a half-century. Marsh has 1946 runs, the fourth best in the history of the BBL, and 18 scores over 50.
  • Ben Laughlin – The only bowler in the competition’s history to take over 100 wickets. Laughlin has played for Adelaide Strikers, Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes. He has 110 wickets at an average of 22.40 with two four-wicket hauls.
  • Sean Abbott – Sean Abbott is on 99 BBL wickets and needs just one to join Laughlin as the only bowlers with three-figure wicket tallies in the Big Bash League. From Sydney Thunder to the Sydney Sixers, Abbott has switched franchises but has always been a key player for his side in the competition 
  • Dan Christian – A veteran all-rounder, Dan Christian has been a supremely brilliant player in the Big Bash League for whichever side he played for. Christian has represented four franchises in the BBL and has over 1400 runs and 70 wickets in the league’s history. Currently with the Sydney Sixers, Christian continues to remain one of the biggest players in the league.
  • Rashid Khan – The Afghanistan leg-spinner is just three years old in the BBL but has over 50 wickets already at a stunning strike-rate of 16.6. The leg-spinner can perhaps be titled as the most influential overseas buy in the BBL history. He plays for the Adelaide Strikers. 

A special mention goes to AB de Villiers in the BBL, a stint that not many expected or rated. A massive signing by the Brisbane Heat in the 2019/20 edition, the South African superstar played just six matches for the Heat and scored 146 runs at an average of 24.33. While his returns weren’t great, de Villiers was perhaps the biggest overseas signing ever made in the Big Bash League history. A franchise cricket faithful now, having retired from international cricket, de Villiers won’t play in the 2020/21 edition due to the imminent birth of his child and the quarantine measures needed in these Covid-19 times.

In the last edition – the 2019/20 one – the Big Bash League saw an average crowd of 18,000. The franchise that attracted the most crowd were the Perth Scorchers.

Which grounds stage the Big Bash League?

The Big Bash League has been played across 17 venues in Australia. The WACA in Perth has hosted four finals. But it’s no longer the home ground of the Perth Scorchers who play in the Optus Stadium. The MCG, with a seating capacity over 1,00,000 remains the largest ground hosting the BBL.
