Less BBL could be more with competition to discuss shortening season

News Post || News Now:

Perth’s victory over Brisbane in the Big Bash final was the perfect capstone to a brilliant comeback season for the T20 league, but where does the competition go from here?

After several listless summers, the BBL experienced a resurgence in popularity over recent months and the hits could keep on coming with the competition’s General Manager Alistair Dobson revealing the league could consider going back to the abbreviated schedule of past years.

Currently, each side plays 14 games per season, up from the previous 10-match campaigns, with fans struggling to sustain interest through the lengthy schedule.


The current format is locked into the television rights deal for at least two more seasons but Dobson said the competition’s key stakeholders would meet to discuss a possible change sooner rather than later.

“I wouldn’t put a date on it other than to say it’s relatively urgent if we’re going to make that decision based on scheduling and player contracting and all those other factors that kick off in the next month or two,” Dobson told ABC Sport.

“We’ll be on to that pretty quick, or at least having the discussion and it’s important we get those big pillars locked away for next season and give everyone else a chance to plan.
