Big Bash League 2020/21: Schedule unveiled with matches across the country

The Big Bash League schedule, a highly anticipated one with border restrictions, has come out with Perth set to host matches in early January. Four of those are home games for the Perth Scorchers. Melbourne will host a further 11 matches in the newly announced schedule.

The early half of January will also see Big Bash League games in Queensland, Hobart and Adelaide. Later in the month, Melbourne and Sydney hosts matches as the season heads into the final few weeks.

There is a triple-header on Australia Day (January 26) as the season concludes with Melbourne hosting two games and Sydney hosting one.

“The league is delighted to confirm the boldest schedule in Australian sport since the pandemic began by committing to take matches to every club’s home market in KFC BBL|10,” Alistair Dobson, the head of the Big Bash, said. “This schedule is a testament to the strength of the league and ensures our fans around the country will get the chance to see their BBL clubs in action on home soil.”

Mick Murray, Western Australian Minister for Sport and Recreation, said: “It is exciting that the Perth Scorchers will have the opportunity to play four matches before a home crowd during this summer of cricket. This is a fantastic outcome for the State – and I thank the WACA, VenuesWest, Cricket Australia, the Chief Health Officer and the Police Commissioner for their work in securing these five games for WA.”
