Serious question - how/why is the Big Bash so boring?

I've tried to watch a few games now and it's...boring. Whatever **** you can throw at the IPL, I'd never call it boring. Caught some T20 Vitality and a bunch of other regional leagues too this summer and none of them were boring. Big Bash is legit boring.

Someone explain.

Can’t compare it to those leagues as I’ve genuinely not watched them.

BBL is magnificent in its mediocrity, mostly because it’s timing means the best players don’t play in large parts of it. Hell, even the best local players are out for the vast majority of it, let alone international players.

It's the yawning chasm of time between balls, usually spent on micrometric field adjustments.

Mitch Marsh's quote about his recovery really cracked me up. :laugh:

“I’m under strict instruction from the physio not to announce when I’m coming back but I reckon I’ll be back on Saturday."
Marsh playing 5d chess perhaps to get back in to the team soon?
