Last edition's runner-up Brisbane Heat will clash against mighty Melbourne Stars in the opening match of the Big Bash League 2023/24 season (BBL) on Thursday, December 7. The 13th edition of Australia's famous T20 franchise league brings format change and new rules with major changes to teams.

The defending champions Perth Scorchers will kick off their title defence with a mouth-watering away clash against Melbourne Renegades. Australia are also hosting Pakistan in the three-match Test series starting on December 14 and senior cricketers are expected to leave the league after the first week of play. 

Eight teams will clash in 40 group-stage games and the final will be played on January 24, 2024. No more six if a ball touches the roof of the Marvel Stadium as the new rule gives the umpire more power to decide on whether it's six or not.

Big Bash League season 13 match will begin at 1:45 PM IST with home and away format. Star Sports Network have signed a multi-year contract with Cricket Australia and will stream BBL matches.
