BBL05 FAQs

BBL05 FAQs

Summer’s Biggest Entertainment is nearly here!

BBL05 is set to be the biggest KFC T20 Big Bash League yet with huge stars, more fun, entertainment and the best cricket experience across the summer months!


WHAT IS THE BBL?

Every match of the KFC BBL is about much the same thing, if you’re batting, you have to smash and crash as many runs as you can, as fast as you can in 20 overs and if you’re bowling, you have to try to stop the opposition doing exactly that!

The team with the highest score at the conclusion of the match wins. See? Simple. It’s high-energy, non-stop entertainment, all played in a three-hour window.

 

WHO ARE THE HOBART HURRICANES?

The Hobart Hurricanes are the Tasmanian team in the BBL, decked out in purple, we are into season number five in the KFC T20 Big Bash League. The Hurricanes made the Big Final in BBL03 and will be looking to get back at the top in BBL05! 

We have some HUGE names in our team including one of THE greatest players to have played the game, Kumar Sangakkara and we can’t wait to see him in action this summer. Combine Kumar with fellow international Darren Sammy and locals George Bailey, Tim Paine and Ben Dunk and our side is looking set for a big BBL05.

This year we also have a Women’s Hurricanes team who will play in the inaugural season of the WBBL (Women’s Big Bash League). The girls will play a couple of ‘Double Headers’ with our men’s team with the highlight our New Year’s Day double header at Blundstone Arena. More info on the WBBL can be found HERE.
