A new feature of this year’s competition will be regular Thursday night matches, a release from Cricket Australia stated. “The WBBL evolving into more of a prime time competition is exactly what it merits and it’s a great evolution for the competition,”
Cricket Australia’s Head of the Big Bash, Alistair Dobson, was quoted as being said by cricket.com.au on Thursday (July 7).”I think those festival weekends have proven really popular, and I think the players really enjoy them and fans love being able to see lots of cricket on one weekend.
“But equally, in previous years we’ve had smaller festivals midweek, which is what we’ve been able to largely avoid this year and been able to move those midweek games into more standalone matches.
“More than ever, we’ve got one-off matches on an individual night, which just lends itself to sort of bigger crowds and bigger audiences. Ultimately, I think it’s one of the strongest schedules we’ve had, if not the strongest since we moved to a standalone season.”
The schedule has been made in such a way that there are no clashes between the WBBL games and Australia’s World Cup games.
“Ultimately, (the World Cup) hasn’t caused us too much disruption, partly because the venue mix is pretty separate and equally, the Australian matches in the World Cup are something we’ve been able to avoid,” Dobson said.
