It is set to be the ultimate summer of cricket in Sydney with the KFC Big Bash League returning for its fifth season and the Commonwealth Bank Test Series and the Victoria Bitter One Day International (ODI) Series bringing the West Indies and India international teams to our shores.
The 2015/2016 Domestic Twenty20 Cricket Competition, the Big Bash League, will run from 17 December – 24 January and see 35 matches played over 39 days across Australia this summer. Each three hour long action-packed match will showcase the best domestic and international cricketers along with some huge hits, amazing catches and explosive bowling.
Some of the big names to watch out for this series include current Australian captain Steve Smith, controversial former England player Kevin Pietersen, leading fast bowler Mitchell Starc and wicket keeping veteran Brad Haddin.
A special international edition of the KFC T20 game will see the Australia International Cricket Team take on the Indian Team in three separate matches in January 2016.
