Why Does Cricket Australia Want To Change The Rule Of BBL? How Many Matches Will Be Reduced? Check Full Report

Between the Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL 2023), big news related to a T20 league is coming out. For some time, it has been considered to increase the number of matches in the IPL, but on the other hand, the matches of a T20 league have been cut. This T20 league is none other than the Big Bash League (BBL). Cricket Australia has decided to shorten the Big Bash League.

Cricket Australia announced on Friday that the men’s Big Bash League would be reduced to 10 matches for each team. The board made this announcement after reaching an agreement with the broadcasters. This year, instead of 56, only 40 regular-season matches will be played in the league. Apart from league matches, the final series will also be shortened. Instead of five, now only four teams will enter the final series. However, its outline has not been decided yet.

This new provision will be added in BBL this summer itself. At present, the dates of BBL are yet to be announced. But due to the shortening of the tournament, it can now be played during the Christmas school holidays. This will also increase the chances of most foreign players participating in most matches.

BBL General Manager Alistair Dobson said, “With a shorter tournament we will be able to succeed in the aim of giving our best between the club and the fans. As a league, we are always looking at how we can innovate and develop ourselves. The draft method will be used to distribute players among the BBL franchises. The draft system was introduced last year to avoid free negotiation and now players will be selected by a lottery before September.”

The Big Bash League was started in the year 2011. Many big players of the world also play in this league. Big Bash League is played between 8 teams. Perth Scorchers is the most successful team in this league. Perth Scorchers has won the Big Bash League title 4 times. At the same time, the team of Sydney Sixers has become champion 3 times.
