Anyone heading in today?

Women's game in the afternoon, Strikers vs Renegades at night.

It's a pity there such a massive gap between the two game times. Almost enough time to fit another whole Twenty20 in between them.

They should leave 30 minutes from when a Super Over would finish - that's it. Instead it's a 1.20pm start for the girls which would finish just after 4pm then the Strikers game doesn't start until 6.45pm. Needless.

The teams shouldn't need to warm up on the oval. There are turf nets, another whole oval and an indoor centre they can do that

I'm going tonight and I can't wait! As a purist I hate all the bullshit that comes with the Big Bash but I'm very much looking forward to seeing the guys play live, especially Rashid Khan.

That's what I love about the BBL, seeing the domestic players play live in prime time and having the exposure to the public domestic players have never had. For me the BBL has increased my interest in and grown my knowledge of domestic cricket since it's inception because I've got to know all the players so well seeing them on tv every night.

General admission has been sold out and I think bronze level has too. With it being such a nice day and given that most people will now be on holidays as of tomorrow surely their will be a large crowd.

It's a shame there was a massive break between the two games. Like the footy, it would've been better to have the women's on and then after a half hour break, put the mens on. Why the massive break between the two? That to me wasn't a double header.

Jesus the last 4 overs are making my eyes bleed, seriously hard to watch.

Need 160 minimum and that ain’t happening! Especially with Mr ‘10 Ave’ in next. If he had a different surname he wouldn’t even be in the side. If it wasn’t for Michael Beer he’d be the worst player in the BBL

174 a good score in the end after a slow, boring start.
