Perth Scorchers will kick-start their tenth Big Celebration League campaign with a smash hit clash versus old competitors Sydney Sixers in your home on the earlier date of December sixth.

The Twenty20 tournament will be opened by the Strikers taking on the Renegades at Adelaide Oval on December 3, with the last set for February 6.

The competition’s earlier start date has actually been set to line up with the beginning of the first Test against India at the Gabba.


The Scorchers have actually held on to their marquee Boxing Day clash, with the Strikers their opponent for the third-straight year.

” We’re actually anticipating starting our season strong in our opening home match in front of our Members and fans at Optus Stadium,” Scorchers head coach Adam Voges said.

” It’s terrific we are as soon as again playing the standard Boxing Day match, it is among the significant highlights for the gamers as it constantly draws great crowd numbers.”

The competition will stop briefly for a six-day break, during which time the day-night Test versus India at Adelaide Oval will take location.

The break has actually been positioned to prevent any overlap in broadcast coverage in between the fastest and longest format of the game, as the BBL looks to bounce back from lowly rankings last year.

The five-team finals series has been maintained following its intro last year.

On the other hand off the back of in 2015’s inaugural standalone WBBL, the ladies’s competition will once again be rewarded with its own timeslot, beginning on October 17.

The 59-match series will kick off with celebration weekends in Perth and Brisbane, with the Scorchers hosting back-to-back home video games against the Thunder and Stars respectively.

Each team will host a weekend in their home city, with a New South Wales hub will taking place for 3 weeks to reduce travel amidst the international pandemic.

Numerous WBBL locations are yet to be validated due to the ever-changing nature of each city’s coronavirus situation.

WACA CEO Christina Matthews will front the media this early morning to discuss what the component release implies for both Perth groups.
