The seventh edition of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) will begin with runners-up, Melbourne Stars taking on Sydney Sixers at North Sydney Oval on October 14. The WBBL06 was played entirely out of a bio-bubble in Sydney due to Covid-19 restrictions, and WBBL07 will be played across venues in Australia. 47 out of 59 games will also be broadcast on television.

“We’re also delighted to take the competition back to our passionate and loyal fans around the country provided it is safe to do so,” Cricket Australia’s head of the Big Bash, Alistair Dobson, said on Thursday (July 8).

“Like all sporting leagues, we remain conscious of the need to be flexible in response to the challenges of the pandemic. This schedule provides us with a number of options should we need to pivot, and the lessons of WBBL 06 stand us in good stead should we need to do so.”

All eight teams will begin their campaign at the picturesque North Sydney Oval in an opening weekend. Sydney has been a place of choice for the opening weekend given the quick turnaround from Australia’s multi-format series against India. The series will conclude at North Sydney Oval with the final T20I on October 11.

The remaining fixtures of this edition’s WBBL will be played at venues like WACA Ground in Perth, Junction Oval in Melbourne, Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide and Blundstone Arena in Hobart. Redevelopment work at the Allan Border Field means Brisbane Heat will play their home fixtures out of Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast.

The top four teams will face off in the semi-finals on November 24 and 25. The final of the seventh edition of WBBL will be played on November 27.
