Big Bash 2019-20, Schedule, Teams, TV Channels: The Big Bash League is one of the biggest domestic cricket tournaments of all time and it is coming back in 2019-20. The tournament was established by none other than Australia in 2011 and the rest is history. We have seen some amazing Matches and moments in this T20 league and that is something that can never be stopped. The best part about T20 tournaments, in my opinion, is the fact that you never know when the game will change. One team might start off at the top and can still go too down to even qualify for the knockouts. In case you’re wondering what this tournament is all about, it is basically like IPL. Just like a lot of teams named after cities of India participate in the Indian Premier League and then one team wins, here in the Big Bash League something similar happens.
There are few cities in Australia after which the teams are named the total of 8 teams play against each other in order to get to the top 4 and then to the knockouts which will finally lead them to the finals. Also, just like the Indian Premier League is sponsored by Vivo, the Big Bash League is sponsored by KFC ever since the inauguration of this league. The tournament is very exciting and that is the reason why people already want to know the details about the Big Bash League 2020. Well, every detail about it is given in the article below. Hence, stay tuned.
About Big Bash League
The first edition of The Big Bash League happened in the year 2011-12 while the latest happened just this year (2019-20). Actually, the tournament happens once in a year and that too during the southern hemisphere summer of Australia in the months of December, January and February. The league did not have many seasons but still the most successful team has won 3 times.
This Domestic Cricket league is played by eight different teams with players from all over the world. Out of these 8 teams, 6 teams have won the title at least once while the other two did not get a hold of the trophy yet. The most successful team which has won a total of 3 titles are the Perth Scorchers. They have also won the title in two consecutive years which is a big deal. The Other teams which have won the title once are Adelaide Strikers, Sydney Sixers, Melbourne Renegades, Brisbane Heat and Sydney Thunder. The latest edition which ended in February 2019 was won by Melbourne Renegades for the first time and it was a good moment for the team. They will definitely try to repeat history yet again but we never know who will come up at the top after the matches. However, they will of course be walking into this tournament with full of confidence.
Big Bash League 2019-20
This is the next season of The Big Bash League which is going to be as amazing as any other season so far. The best part about the Big Bash League is its format which is T20. T20 games are so unpredictable that so many moments and memories are formed in the minds of the watchers. If you are a keen cricket observer, you would have noticed that there are many people who are more interested in T20 tournaments than any other Cricket tournament. That is solely because T20 games neither take much time from your daily life nor does it become boring at any point of time. Apart from that, the Big Bash League has a whole different fanbase who are really into the game.
The 2019-20 edition is going to be the 9th edition of the Big Bash League which is definitely going to be amazing and is also very much looked-forward to. The trophy is apparently not going to change in any possible way and is going to be the same. Fans would not really mind because they really love the way it has been designed. The trophy was initially chosen by public from a field of 3 and was reviewed to the world on December 13, 2011

Ever since the 2018-19 season which is the latest one, the tournament planners have decided that each team is going to face every other team twice in the whole tournament thus leading to 56 regular group stage matches. For some reason, people have been predicting that they’re trying to reach the level of the Indian Premier League since it has become such a huge festival for cricket fans all over the world. Even if they do so, maximum people would not mind because the Big Bash League is nothing less than the IPL.
There is another rule that is followed by the Big Bash League which, in my opinion, is really good. The rule states that the final match is going to be played in the home ground of the highest ranked team. This is definitely a good step because the home crowd will always lead to a more intense intent for the team to win which is a great thing.

The defending champions are the Melbourne Renegades and they are definitely going to try to be on a hattrick for trophies. On the other hand, in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, the semifinal was when Australia was knocked out by England. That is the reason why the Big Bash League 2019-20 is going to be the next big thing for Australia and the Australian fans to look forward to.
When will be Big Bash 2019-20 Started?
Big Bash League is already one of the most wanted things in the internet among the cricket fans but we do not yet know when the tournament is going to start off. Every year, the tournament kicks off in December and runs till February and that is the reason we can assume that this time, the tournament is also going to start from December (unless there are any external thing delaying the kickoff). We understand the fans are excited and that is the reason why the Big Bash League live streaming details are given in the article below so that you don’t need to worry about it before December anytime again.
The exact date is not yet revealed and it makes sense why. It is just July of this year and the World Cup is running and releasing the date at this point of time would not create a lot of buzz because people of course more excited about the World Cup 2019. Also, this time the world cup will be won by a new team (either New Zealand or England), so the excitement level is higher.
The number of teams in this tournament is also going to be the same. 8 teams are going to compete against each other. Each team is going to face every other team twice which will lead to 14 matches for each team. In every single team, a total of two overseas players can play. In my opinion, it is not that bad a decision since the domestic players are getting more opportunities.
The matches are going to be played in Big stadiums like the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the Sydney Cricket Ground and so many more. The crowd is expected to be in good numbers just like it has been for the past years.
