BBL fixture to be release tomorrow is my mail...
spot on

looks like it has been increased so that each team plays a full H&A season (each team has 14 matches).

Hopefully this won't "dilute" the product , too much could be overkill especially if their is no "window" for the Test/ODI players too play a reasonable amount of games.

Don't think our playing base is strong enough to support 8 teams without the Internationals , would love to go back to a 6 team comp and then invite Hong Kong and PNG as the 2 extra sides and get the BCCI to release the Indians and allow them to play.

Apparently TV ratings have been declining in the last 3 years so be interesting to see how the change of broadcaster affects things also will crowds suffer with fans having a extra 3 home games to budget for.

With the Big Bash now mid Dec to mid Feb where does leave Shield matches , will the time come where it will be only a 5 round shield season and more focus on the Big Bash.

Interesting times ahead.

Cummins and Hazlewood ruled out of the Pakistan series in the UAE.

Starc should be right.

I guess it could be out of Bird , J Richardson , Sayers , Tremain (?) to tour , suspect we will play Lyon and Agar
