I’m the daughter of a cricketer so I’ve logged some serious hours watching cricket and playing in the stands at Adelaide Oval. The Big Bash has everyone in your family covered for entertainment. There’s great music, phenomenal fireworks, unique boundary performances and the most fast paced cricket around – all packed into just a few short hours! Howzat!
It’s just not cricket… It’s better! The KFC Big Bash League is the best of cricket rolled up into an explosive three hour entertainment experience in one of the most beautiful sporting venues in the world. There’s never a dull moment as the atmosphere intensifies keeping the entire family on the edge of their seats till the very last ball! Just check this video out for a taste of what’s in store!

The kids will be on school holidays before you know it and with general admission family tickets starting from just $42.50* the value for parents is First Class. Another great way to make it even more affordable is to bring your own food; everyone gets their favourite food without it costing an arm and a leg (before wicket). You can Big-Bash-on-a-Budget! Tickets to the Big Bash League can easily be purchased online or at the gate on match day.*
This season for the first time ever, The KFC Big Bash League includes some of the world’s best ladies of cricket including Megan Schutt! That’s right Adeladies, a women’s Strikers team.
You can catch both Adelaide teams in the double header on NYE. Dizzy Gillespie is back to coach the men and Polly’s having his best season ever so look forward to some big hits and the dancing and singing on the field he is known for! I’m looking forward to cheering on our team at the first match in December.
