The Women’s Big Bash League Finals

Programme Production

The finals of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) took place on Saturday 28 November in Sydney where Melbourne Stars played Sydney Thunder. Congratulations to Sydney Thunder as they were crowned the champions of The WBBL and won by seven wickets with 38 balls left.  

The WBBL is the Australian women’s domestic Twenty20 cricket competition and features eight city-based franchises, branded identically to the men’s Big Bash League. 

The interim ratings for the final saw an average audience of 428,801 viewers tuning in making it the highest rating WBBL match on 7mate and the second highest on Fox Cricket ever. It is also 12% higher than the WBBL|05 Final, demonstrating the competition’s growth. 

Gravity Media was once again contracted to support Cricket Australia across multiple competitions with both streaming and broadcast services. Gravity Media’s turnkey production of the cricket live streams of the WBBL continued over the weekend from at the North Sydney Oval.   

The complete Women’s Big Bash League saw Gravity Media stream a total of 35 matches to the Fox streaming platform Kayo with 12 matches broadcast on Fox Sports.  

This project also covers the international tour match between Australia and India which will be broadcast in Australia and around the world, the men’s domestic one day competition – Marsh Cup - as well as the women’s national one day cup final and a range of other age based competitions.
