Once again eight teams will battle it out in the Big Bash League and the competition will be made up of the usual suspects.

The eight teams are: Adelaide Strikers, Brisbane Heat, Hobart Hurricanes, Melbourne Renegades, Melbourne Stars, Perth Scorchers, Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder.

Latest betting odds

The Perth Scorchers have been the most dominant side in the history of the Big Bash League, winning the championship on five occasions.

The men in orange have won the last two editions and will target the three-peat in the 2023/24 season.

Perth Scorchers can be backed at 3.60 to do just that, and once again they could take some stopping.

Sydney Sixers, look the biggest danger to them and can be backed at 5.50, while both Hobart Hurricanes available at 5.50.

New format

In previous seasons, each side has played a total of 14 matches during the regular season, but this has now been cut back to 10.

The 2023/24 season will also start a week earlier on 7th December and will conclude with the BBL final on 24th January.

BBL 13 is also set to have more prime-time fixtures during the school holidays in an attempt to get the crowds flocking back into the stadiums.

That means fewer games in the early afternoon, which can struggle to attract the crowds.

The new schedule also reduces the amount of clashes with rival T20 leagues around the globe.

There will be just four matches played in finals. The Qualifier will be played on Friday 19th January, which will see first take on second.

The Knockout between third and fourth will be the day after.

The Challenger between The Qualifier loser and Knockout winner will be played on Monday 22nd January.

The Grand Final on will see the Qualifier winner and Challenger winner battle it out on Wednesday 24th January.
