Alistair Dobson Statements

Head of Big Bash League Alistair Dobson reflects the seasons brought strong view figures and unpredictable results.

“It’s huge credit to not only all the players but the staff. To commit to hubs and over Christmas then when the goalposts would shift at very short notice for everyone to continue to roll with it.

“And 500,000 people were able to attend Big Bash matches which when you look around the world that’s an incredible number.”
