FORMAT OF THE BIG BASH LEAGUE 2020/21 & NEW RULES
The loser of ‘The Qualifier’ will go up against the winner of ‘The Knock-Out’ where the winner of this contest will play the finals.
Power surge: The powerplay at the beginning of the innings has been reduced to 4 overs. ‘Power Surge’ is a two-over period during which the fielding team is allowed only two players outside the inner fielding circle. The batting side can opt for this at any point from the 11th over.
The X – Factor: Named as either the 12th or 13th player on the team sheet, the X-Factor can come into the game beyond the 10th over of the 1st innings and replace any player who is yet to bat, or has bowled not more than one over.
Bash Boost: The team chasing will receive the bonus point if they’re above the equivalent 10-over score of their opposition, while if they’re trailing, the fielding side will receive the bonus point. Teams now have a chance of being awarded three points for winning the match, as opposed to the traditional two.
