The Hobart Hurricanes will take on the defending champions Sydney Sixers in the first BBL game of 2020. Hobart, the 2018-19 table-toppers, will be aiming for their first title this year. Adelaide Strikers, Perth Scorchers, Melbourne Renegades, Melbourne Stars, Brisbane Heat and Sydney Thunder will be the six other teams competing for the title of the tenth title of the BBL. This year, the organizers have introduced three new, slightly contentious, rules to make the tournament more exciting.
These include introducing an X-factor player after the 10th over as a batsman, bowler or fielder. A special two-over power play called the ‘power surge’, which allows the batting team to play with just two fielders outside the inner ring in the second half of an innings. The last rule change is the ‘bash boost,’ an extra point awarded to the team with the best 10-over score at the end of the game.
