The Big Bash League is an exciting and popular event in Australian cricket, drawing in fans from all corners of the country. The inclusion of an ACT franchise has been a point of discussion recently, but league boss Alistair Dobson has committed to retaining the controversial international player draft, which is good news for fans.

Dobson emphasized the importance of maintaining two teams in both Sydney and Melbourne, indicating that the ACT franchise would not result in the relocation of any current teams. The league remains happy with the existing eight-team model, and local derbies between Melbourne and Sydney teams are highly valued.

While there has been a reported push from Cricket ACT to include teams in the BBL and WBBL, Dobson made it clear that there is no chance of existing clubs being relocated. Additionally, the league is open to discussions about the retention rules and is actively seeking ways to keep players in the league for longer.

Despite the absence of some international players due to prior commitments, the attendance at BBL matches has been impressive. In fact, five matches drew crowds of more than 40,000, showcasing the widespread appeal of the league.

The Sydney Sixers will host the Brisbane Heat in the BBL final at the SCG on Wednesday night. Overall, it’s clear that the BBL is in good shape and continues to captivate audiences with its exciting brand of cricket.
