The Big Bash League squads and team lists for the 2021-22 season are still being announced.
Keep this page bookmarked as we update it with each signing.
Team lists typically consist of 19 players with up to four internationals – three of which can be with the team at any one time. That’s an increase from previous seasons, when only two overseas-based players were allowed in an XI.
The status and availability of any overseas signings is up in the air given the intense discussions currently taking place over quarantine restrictions for incoming arrivals.
Centralised Pool of Replacement Players
As a result of many sides losing significant numbers of players to COVID during the competition, the Big Bash League announced on 10th January 2022 that they had created a pool of replacement players that could be used by BBL teams. While these players will be assigned to a “home” club for logistical purposes, this approach does mean that a player could find themselves representing more than one BBL side in a matter of days.
