I'm heading out to the Sixers game tommorow. I'm actually pretty excited for this upcoming Big Bash, could turn out to be more than decent.
Is Starc likely to play tommorow?
Why did Cricket Australia schedule a T20 tournament in the middle of an test series?
So they could cash in on the school holidays.
because the bcci are ****s and instead of playing in December like normal teams they demand to play in January. #sadbutture

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Over the last 10-15 years, it's pretty much always the last test of the summer. See: Aggregate/overall records | Test matches | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo
Admittedly in the last couple of 6 test summers there's been another test afterwards, but the last time we had a test this late in the summer was...well when India was here last. Tests on Aus day used to be the norm but that went on the window during the 90's. For whatever reason though when we seem to have brought them back for India.
So to a degree I feel for CA a tiny bit. It's a very, very long summer, ODers are still gonna be played in March so the bigbash was always gonna be scheduled at an awkward time if they went on with the reform....so i guess you could say "why do the reform this year?"
IMO, if CA didnt want it to clash with the tests they should have looked at pushing the India tour. But they might not have wanted to do it since it would go against a long standing tradition of starting a match on Boxing day
no i'm pretty sure it's the bcci's fault.
The thing with the Big Bash is that it could be really good if done properly But IIRC Australia's summers are absolutely packed internationally - I don't think the Big Bash can really work in its current format unfortunately.

the weather gods obviously have no problem with T20. Just like every FC and List A match hosted in Sydney over the past 2 years it looks like rain's gonna be a factor
WET T-SHIRT CONTEST
EDIT: no fatties
