Big Bash League has been extremely competitive and in the past nine seasons, we have seen six different winners. While there are sides that have dominated, it is an uphill challenge to pick who will win Big Bash League in its 10th season right before the start of the tournament. However, it is worth looking back at the performances of the teams so far in the league’s history. Check our analysis of the teams to fine-tune your own Big Bash predictions for who will win the BBL 10 title –
The defending champions had a great season last year where they played well during the league stage to finish second and then managed two straight wins to lift the trophy. This was the second title for the side after winning the inaugural tournament in 2011-12. They were favorites in our Big Bash prediction for the BBL Final 2019-20. They would be one of the sides to watch out for this season.
It was yet another loss in the final for the side their second in a row. They topped during the league stage but the same horrors came back to haunt them last year as well. The team just fails to control its nerves in the knockout stages. In the past nine seasons, the side has been in the semi-finals and the finals always barring 2018-19. The side would be looking to overcome the final hurdle this time around.
They came back from behind to make it to third place in the last season. This was a good improvement for the team that has always been at the bottom of the points table. Apart from their title win in the 2015-16 season the side has never gone beyond the group stages of the league. They will need to do well in the league stage which has been the biggest issue with the team.
They lost out in the knock out game last season and would be looking to grab their second title this year. Winners of the 2017-18 season of the league they have been one of the most consistent sides in the last few seasons. The side would be looking to get over its habit of depending on a few players for their wins and play well as a unit. They have roped in some exciting players for this edition.
They were knocked out in the Eliminator game last year in what was an average season for the side. They have never won the title despite making it to the tournament decider twice in the past. Their inability to win close games has been one of their biggest problems. With most of the games, this season scheduled in Hobart the side would like to make good use of its familiarity with the conditions.
They won the title in 2012-13 but since then it has been a downhill ride for the team. The side finished 7th last and hasn’t made it to the knockout stages since 2016-17. The team has undergone rejig this year and the management would be looking to get rolling from the start. It will be interesting to see if they are able to end their title drought this year.
The most successful team in the league’s history they have won the title thrice on 2013-14, 2014-15, and 2016-17. It was a downfall for them in the last two seasons as they have finished 8th and 6th on the points table respectively. Bowlers have let the side down and they would be looking to come up with a better show this year and win their fourth title.
From winning the title in 2018-19 to finishing at the bottom of the points table last year, life came a full circle for the Renegades last year. It also proved many Big Bash predictions wrong that had MLR as favorites to defend the title. They won just three games last season as their players failed to get the act together. The side would like to keep this behind and focus on making a good start to the season and earn their second title.
The organizers of the Big Bash League have introduced 3 new rules for the upcoming season. Let’s take a look at what these rules are what do they mean for our Big Bash predictions –
In a typical T20 game, the power-play is for the first 6 overs of the innings. However, this Big Bash season, the power-play restrictions will be on just for the first 4 overs. Later, in the 11th over of the innings, the batting team can take another 2-overs power-play, called the Power Surge.
Now, many fans have called the new rules a gimmick rather than having any strategic significance in the match. We believe the Power Surge gives an opportunity for the batting side to speed up the run rate. However, it is to be seen whether teams can build a strategy around this rule and if and when they do so, we shall analyze the possibilities in our predictions for BBL matches.
This rule, of all, has attracted the most criticism and ridicule given the ironic nature of it. You must have heard and witnessed the mid-game substitution in a Football match. BBL 10 aims to bring the same to T20 cricket.
Before the match starts, each team must mention their 12th and 13th name. Teams can then bring in either of these two to replace another player from the playing XI after 10 overs in the 1st innings. The player being replaced must have not bowled more than one over or is yet to bat.
You can find our best picks for the 12th and 13th names of a team in our predictions for Big Bash League matches. On the surface of it, this rule may seem strange, but as the season progresses, we may see teams increasingly making it a part of their strategies.
This rule may have possibly the biggest impact on the teams’ approach to batting. According to Bash Boost, the batting team will receive a bonus point if their 10-overs score is higher than that of their opposition. And if they’re trailing behind the opposition’s equivalent 10-overs score, the bonus point will be awarded to the fielding team.
If a team decides to go for the bonus point rather than focusing on the end result of the match, a lot can change. Trying to score higher than the opposition in the first 10 overs could result in the batting team losing more wickets which would eventually affect their chase and possibly the match result. This is more likely to happen when the race to the play-offs gets stiff.
At BettingTop10 India, we always aim to bring the best of sports betting to our readers. If these rules bring in newer betting markets, for example, markets around performances or selection of the X-Factor player, total runs in the Power Surge, team to win the Bash Boost, etc., you will definitely find them in our Big Bash betting tips.
