With the Australian summer firmly on the horizon, that means cricket is about to move up a gear too. The Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) is the premier women's domestic T20 competition and once again will be a standalone tournament, separate from the men's BBL.

The summer of cricket has already begun with the Sheffield Shield competition getting underway in October. In terms of the WBBL, everyone is chasing the Sydney Thunder, who won their second WBBL title after a terrific victory over the Stars in last year's WBBL|06 final.

When is the 2021 WBBL?

The new WBBL campaign begins on Thursday 14 October. The first 2 weeks of the tournament will be played in Tasmania, before moving to Perth, Adelaide and Mackay for the remainder as the teams continue to hub due to the pandemic.

Which teams play in the WBBL?

All 8 men's teams that compete in the BBL also have a representative side in the WBBL.

    How to watch the 2021 WBBL

    Viewers have several options when it comes to watching the WBBL this season. For the first time, every single match is being broadcast live. Yet only 1 broadcaster, Kayo Sports, will have every WBBL|07 match live and on demand.

    The Seven Network and Fox Cricket will have 24 matches of the competition. Another 35 games will be streamed on the Cricket Network and the Cricket Australia Live app. All 59 clashes are on Kayo.

    The Sixers and the Stars will play a standalone match on the opening night of the tournament, with the first 14 days seeing matches played at Blundstone Arena in Hobart and Inverney Park in Launceston.

    Watch WBBL|07 on Seven Network

    This is the fourth year of the Seven Network's 6-year cricket deal. For the WBBL you'll need to check your local guides as viewing varies state by state. Matches will be shown on TV through either Channel 7 or 7mate.

    As we mentioned, free-to-air TV will be broadcasting less than half of this year's tournament. So if you want to watch any and all matches on your terms, you will need a subscription.
