The 2020-21 Big Bash League is set to start on December 10, with reigning champions Sydney Sixers taking on the Hobart Hurricanes at the Blundstone Arena in Bellerive, Australia. The full schedule for BBL 2020 was released on Monday,

Eight teams – Adelaide Strikers, Brisbane Heat, Hobart Hurricanes, Melbourne Renegades, Melbourne Stars, Perth Scorchers, Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder – will play each other twice during the course of the league stage. The top five teams will advance to the BBL playoffs.

The 2020-21 BBL season, the tenth of the tournament, will also see the introduction of three new rules changes by the league to help spice up the competition.

The ‘Power Surge' will split the tradition six-over Powerplay into two phases of four overs and two overs, with the latter beginning at the behest of the batting side anytime post the midway mark in their batting effort.

The 'X-Factor' will enable teams to substitute a player into the game after the 10th over mark for a player that hasn’t batted or bowled in the competition, while the 'Bash Boost' will reward one point to the team with more runs at the halfway mark of their innings, irrespective of the result of the match.

These rule changes have certainly split opinion in the cricket fraternity and it remains to be seen if these ‘advancements' help add to the entertainment or might they complicate the contest on the field.
