The bookmaker tells us about the new season’s expectations and a new promotion for the tournament with huge prizes.
Another season of the Big Bash League is just around the corner as the tournament is all set to kick off on 13th December, with Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars playing in the opening encounter. Perth Scorchers became the Champions last season by defeating Sydney Sixers in the final and won their fourth BBL title in the process. It remains to be seen who goes on to claim the coveted title this year but the Scorchers along with some other teams have a really good shot at it.
Who will take part in the tournament?
A total of eight teams will be seen taking part in the league. They are Adelaide Strikers, Brisbane Heat, Hobart Hurricanes, Melbourne Renegades, Melbourne Stars, Perth Scorchers, Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers.
The Scorchers are the most successful team among them, with four titles to their name. The Sixers are their close rivals having won three titles, including back-to-back Championships in the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons. Apart from them, Melbourne Renegades (2018-19), Sydney Thunder (2015-16), Brisbane Heat (2012-13) and Adelaide Strikers (2017-18) have won a title each.
