Big Bash League 2021: What Can We Expect This Season?
Alongside the IPL, the Big-Bash league is another T20 cricketing tournament that features some of the best players worldwide. Held in December, this year’s Big Bash League kicks off with the defending champions Sydney Sixers starting their campaign against the Melbourne Stars on December 6th, 2021. To add to the excitement, last year’s runners-up, the Perth Scorchers, will begin their campaign on December 8th, 2021, as they take on the Brisbane Heat.
During the initial years of the tournament, the Big Bash League followed a format that included 32 matches. However, since the 2018-19 season, league matches rose to 56 as each team had to face every other team twice in the tournament.
During these seasons, many players have scored tons of runs for their respective sides. The likes of Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, and Glenn Maxwell have played tremendous cricket with the bat for all these reasons, but it’s Chris Lynn who is the highest run-scorer of Big Bash League, scoring 2790 runs in 88 innings.
T20 is a batsman-dominated format, but in format too, the role of a quality bowler is the same, to take wickets. With 111 wickets in 95 matches, Ben Laughlin tops the list of highest-wicket takers; following him, Sean Abbott falls second on the list with 106 wickets to his name.
The Player with a Maximum of Sixes
Glenn Maxwell has hit the highest number of sixes since the inception of the Big Bash League. His current count falls at 97, which will surely improve after this season.
