The Women’s Big Bash League 2023-24 is set to begin on October 19, with Sydney Sixers clashing against Melbourne Stars in the curtain raiser at the North Sydney Oval in Sydney, Australia. 

The Women’s Big Bash League, also known as the WBBL, began in 2015-16 and Sydney Thunder emerged victorious in the inaugural edition. The WBBL returns for its ninth edition in 2023-24. 

The participating teams for Australia’s premier domestic T20 cricket tournament for women are Adelaide Strikers, Melbourne Stars, Hobart Hurricanes, Melbourne Renegades, Perth Scorchers, Sydney Thunder, Brisbane Heat and Sydney Sixers.

Sydney Thunder, Sydney Sixers and Brisbane Heat are the most successful teams in WBBL history so far, winning two titles each. In the previous edition, the Adelaide Strikers won the Women’s Big Bash League for the first time in their history by defeating Sydney Sixers in the final. 

The league phase, which will be played from October 19 to November 26, comprises 56 matches. Each team will play 14 round-robin fixtures - two each against the other seven sides in the competition.

The teams finishing in the top four will make it to the knockout phase, which will include an Eliminator (3rd vs 4th), Challenger (2nd vs winner of Eliminator). The date and venue for the Eliminator and Challenger are yet to be decided. 

The final of the Women’s Big Bash League, contested between the team finishing first in the league stage against the winner of Challenger, will take place on December 2.
