The second edition of the Women’s Big Bash League, across 2016-17, will be even bigger and better than the first time around. And to top things off, it’s now very easy to watch every match of the tournament live.
Coverage on TV has increased but will still be limited in some ways. A total of twelve matches will be televised – up from ten last year – live on Channel Ten.
The list of matches that will be broadcast on Channel Ten across the season is as follows:
WBBL matches to be televised on Channel Ten
December 10: Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades (2:10pm)
December 10: Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Stars (6:10pm)
December 11: Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes (11:10am)
December 11: Sydney Sixers vs Brisbane Heat (2:10pm)
December 31: Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers (2:10pm)
January 1: Melbourne Stars vs Melbourne Renegades (2:10pm)
January 8: Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat (2:10pm)

January 21: Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Stars (12:10pm)
January 24, 25: WBBL semi-finals (3:10pm)
January 28: WBBL final (2:10pm)
Only these select matches will be televised, however, it will be possible to watch every single match of the season via live streaming. There are two places you can do this.
The first is to use the Cricket Australia website. They will produce and stream every match of the season, live.
The second is via the WBBL Facebook page, which will live stream the same feed as Cricket Australia for every match of the season.
So, this means that if you want to watch WBBL matches on TV, there is a great selection of high-profile matches for you to do so with, including the semi-finals and the final.
Then, on top of that, if you want to catch every single minute of the season, it is all too easy to do just that via either the Cricket Australia website or Facebook – and it’s all free.
