When Cricket Australia announced that the Big Bash league is going to transform the message was simple: ‘We are going big, very big!’. So the six state team formula has been discarded and the teams have been split up into eight individual franchises and for five to six weeks over the summer (December 2011 to January 2012) it’s going to be a cracker!  Twenty20 Cricket in Australia will become the epicenter of domestic cricket in the country. In KFC Twenty20 Big Bash 2011-2012 each team will play each other once, the top four teams make it to the semi-finals. The KFC Twenty20 Big Bash 2011 tournament is a part of Future Tour Programs prepared by International Cricket Council (ICC).

With foreign players such as Chris Gayle, Keiron Pollard, Daniel Vettori, Shahid Afridi and others this event has gone bigger and better. It is sad that none of the Indians are taking part in this premier event.
