Big Bash League BBL 2018-19 Schedule Live Streaming & Squads

2018–19 Big Bash League BBL 08 Season Updates

Big Bash League BBL 2018-19The Big Bash League is the premier Australian T20 competition that is played in the months of December and January each year between eight teams. It was a replacement for the previous T20 competition by the name of T20 Big Bash and has eight teams play each other in a league-cum-knock-out format.

Since the eighth edition of the Big Bash League, the format of the competition was changed to allow each team to play the seven other sides in a home and away league, making it 14 matches for each side. This was after the tournament became successful enough for the Aussie board to take that step forward from each team playing just 10 games during the league stage.

At the end of this league, the top four sides will make it to the semi-finals, unlike the PSL which has playoffs associated with it.

The eight teams in question in the Big Bash League are Melbourne Renegades, Melbourne Stars, Adelaide Strikers, Perth Scorchers, Hobart Hurricanes, Perth Scorchers, Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder. The Scorchers are the most successful franchise in the history of the Big Bash League with three titles to their name to go with two runner-up positions. No other team has won the BBL more than once, with the Sydney Sixers, Brisbane Heat, Sydney Thunder and Adelaide Strikers having clinched the title once apiece.

The Hobart Hurricanes have been two-time runner-up without winning the Big Bash League even once, the Stars have made it to the final on one occasion while the Renegades haven’t got there even once.

The Big Bash League squads are formulated by the teams signing up for players within the given salary cap. Each year this salary cap is raised a little but teams are strictly expected to adhere to that cap. BBL teams consist of 18 players of which there are two rookie contracts and two overseas players at the most, while two extra replacement cricketers can be signed up in case any of the main 18 need replacing because of injury issues or if they need to be signed up by the national side.

The Big Bash League is broadcast live on television around the world with Australian viewers now able to watch is on Fox Sports after the previous contract with Channel Ten was ended last season. The Seven Network will also be involved in some sort of a simulcast.

If you are in New Zealand, you can watch it on Sky Sport while Sony ESPN will telecast it in the Indian subcontinent except Pakistan where the BBL will be live on PTV. Supersport is the place to watch the BBL if you are in South Africa while UK viewers can watch the BBL live on BT Sport. In the USA, Willow TV have all the rights to telecast the BBL while Canadians can watch it on CBN & ATN Cricket Plus.

Tickets for the KFC BBL|08 will be released mid-year and can be purchased from the official Big Bash League website here.
