Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues, said:
“The KFC BBL|12 is reaching an exciting conclusion with three Finals matches remaining to determine this season’s champions.
“The League is also excited by two upcoming milestones that demonstrate the impact the competition has made on the Australian summer.
“The ten millionth fan in KFC BBL history is expected to attend an upcoming Finals match, while the BBL’s resurgence after pandemic restrictions will be capped by the one millionth fan through the gates this season.
“Such enormous feats would not be possible without the commitment of our players, clubs, match officials, broadcasters, partners, venues and staff to the success of the BBL.”
