KFC Big Bash Cricket League 2013 -14

   Posted in : Cricket >> Event starts On Dec 20th, 2013. Ends at Feb 15th, 2014

The Australian domestic Twenty20 cricket tournament is known as The KFC T20 Big Bash League. The Big Bash League substituted the previous competition, the KFC Twenty20 Big Bash and involves city-based franchises in place of the state teams which had contested in the past. The top ranked two teams in the tournament qualify for the Champions League Twenty20 tournament.

It has been planned to expand the tournament into more regional areas not supported by international cricket. The extension is to be could be immediately after 2012 as the cricket calendar proposed to begin in August to include more T20 games. The new teams to be included in the proposal are Newcastle, Canberra, Geelong and Gold Coast, with a stipulation that only two teams would be considered the first expansion. A New Zealand based team was also mentioned as a prospect. Mark Waugh, cricket expert felt (Fox Sports) that expansion might weaken the player pool resulting in a sub-standard league.
 

It was officially announced in January 2012, that only the existing 8 teams would take part in the 2012 BBL season. However, lack of proper cricket hosting facilities was held responsible for not extending BBL to cities like Newcastle.
 

The 2013–14 Big Bash League season is the third edition of the Big Bash League, the premier Twenty20 cricket tournament in Australia. The tournament will start off from   December 20 2013 and end on February 15 2014. The format will remain unchanged and same as the previous season but will be played for a time-frame that is longer by two weeks. This edition will also spill over to the 2013–14 Ashes series. This will be the first season to be broadcast on free-to-air television on Network Ten.
 

The third spell of the KFC T20 Big Bash League will end now over an epic Big Finals week following Cricket Australia's release of the 2013-14 domestic fixtures.
 

The Big Semi-Finals will be contested on February 4 and 5, with the Big Final set to decide the BBL|03 champions on Friday, February 7.
 

Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland said the compressed Finals week would allow the tournament to flow seamlessly around the other fixtures set in place.
 

"Once the format and schedule of the RYOBI One-Day Cup and Bupa Sheffield Shield became clear, we reviewed the KFC Big Bash League schedule, in consultation and with the support of our host broadcaster Network Ten, and have tightened the finals period into one week which will see the competition continue its momentum following the round matches and also provide a fitting climax to the competition.


 

"This also means it will be played immediately after our International T20 season.
 

"We are excited about partnering with Network Ten for BBL this year.
 

"It is going to be a major free-to-air television event that will bring fans one of the most exciting new live sports products in Australia."
 

BBL|13 will begin with a blockbuster at the MCG as the Stars and Renegades lock horns in a replay of last year's fiery encounter that drew an Australian-record domestic crowd of over 45,000 fans.
