Another event that is marked on all T20 fans calendar is the Big Bash League, which is irrefutably the Australian gift to the world. Established in 2011, post the massive success of IPL, there was no looking back for this professional franchise Twenty20 league. The league and the fan base has grown over the years becoming stronger and more competitive at the culmination of every edition.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the three months of the tournament is no less than a festival for the Aussies, as the fans go out of their way to support their favourite clubs. The matches capture prime time TV spots and eyeballs are glued to every moment of the game. The league is known to producing one of the most gripping results with innumerable prominent cricketers across the globe competing for the prize.

With the exception of Indian players contracted with BCCI, this league features almost all other top T20 players. With nearly seventeen thousand runs hit across 59 matches, this edition, the leading tournament generates last ball thrillers, massive sixes and nail-biting contests.

The contest is divided into eight teams starring the fan’s favourite players opposing each other. It’s difficult to get a crack into the squads of the teams that has a mix of specialists featuring the country’s top names. Thus, the BBL is the second most competitive league with a 9/10 rating.
