The 2018-19 Big Bash League fixtures have been announced, with the season to begin on December 19 when defending champions Adelaide Strikers travel to the Gabba to face the Brisbane Heat.
Under a new TV deal with Fox Sports and Channel Seven, the Big Bash League season will be expanded to a full home-and-away season in 2018-19, with a total of 59 matches set to be played, including two games on Christmas Eve.
43 of those matches will be broadcast on both Fox Sports and Channel Seven, while the remaining 16 matches will be exclusive to Foxtel.
The competition will finish with the final, which is scheduled to be played on February 17.
The Strikers are the defending champions of the competition after getting the better of the Hobart Hurricanes in last year’s final at the Adelaide Oval.
The men’s BBL tournament will also run heavily with the 2018-19 WBBL. You can find the full WBBL fixture here.
