Here, you can see The Roar’s complete 2020-21 Big Bash ladder. The season runs from December 10 and ends with the final on February 6, 2021.

The competition runs with a full home-and-away season, with each team playing 14 games.

The BBL finals series is as follows.

The Eliminator: (Fourth v Fifth)
The Qualifier: (First v Second)
The Knock-Out: (Third v Winner of The Eliminator)
The Challenger: (Loser of The Qualifier v Winner of The Knock-Out)
The Final: (Winner of The Qualifier v Winner of The Challenger)

The way the ladder works hasn’t changed though, with teams given two points for a win and one for a tie or no result match.

In the case of a number of teams finishing on the same number of points, net run rate is used as a tiebreaker to separate the sides. Unlike the basic ‘for and against’ used in so many other sports, net run rate is a slightly more complex beast. Put simply, net run rate is the sum of a team’s average runs scored per over minus the team’s average runs conceded per over.
