The Big Bash T20 League is a concept similar to the IPL and is being organised by Cricket Australia. It is scheduled to start in December 2011 and will comprise initially of 8 teams. The Big Bash League has garnered a lot of interest from investors worldwide including those from India. Although Cricket Australia's CEO James Sutherland has said that the Big bash will not be able to compete with the IPL in terms of sponsorships and viewership, several people seem to disagree as the IPL has been in the news for all the wrong reasons recently.
We at BigBashLeague.com wish Cricket Australia all the best in their future endeavours.
