The fifth season of the rebel Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) was launched yesterday at Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane.
The stars of the WBBL revealed the brand-new Majestic playing kits that will be donned by players across both the rebel Women’s Big Bash League and KFC Big Bash League competitions this summer.
Kayo Sports will this year join Cricket.com.au and the CA Live App in streaming all 59 rebel WBBL matches this season which gives fans across the country the chance to watch the best women’s cricketers in the world.
Radio broadcaster’s ABC Radio, Macquarie Media and Crocmedia will continue their coverage of the WBBL, while Sky Sport will take all 59 games into New Zealand.
Cricket Australia head of Big Bash League Alistair Dobson said:
“Momentum continues to build into rebel WBBL05 as our teams prepare to open up inaugural standalone season next week.
“We’ve had some fantastic international signings in recent weeks as all players prepare for the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia, and we’ve seen the quality of the Australian team against Sri Lanka in the recent T20I and ODI series,” Dobson said.
“The players here today are itching to get back to their clubs and get the WBBL underway, starting with next Friday night’s season opener between the Sydney Sixers and cross-town rivals the Sydney Thunder at North Sydney Oval.
“It’ll be exciting to see the new kits in action for the first time, under the lights of North Sydney Oval, showcasing the vibrancy and action that we’re accustomed to seeing both the rebel WBBL and KFC BBL.”
