Cricket fans will be able to enjoy a summer of Big Bash like never before with Kayo Sports set to stream all 59 matches of the rebel Women’s Big Bash League live in 2019-20.

It is yet another first for the league, with WBBL05 set to take place in a standalone window beginning Friday, October 18 when the Sydney Sixers host the Sydney Thunder at North Sydney Oval.

Kayo will stream every match live and On Demand, while also providing cricket fans with the chance to relive the biggest sixes and other key moments for each match, plus Kayo Mini highlight packages for select matches.

Kayo’s coverage of WBL05 is in addition to the existing broadcast agreements in place. Seven will broadcast 23 matches live, to be simulcast on Fox Cricket, while the remaining 36 matches will be streamed on cricket.com.au and the CA Live app. Matches will also be broadcast on ABC Radio.

“This is another landmark moment in the history of the rebel Women’s Big Bash League,” Head of Big Bash Leagues, Alistair Dobson, said.

“WBBL05 is set be the competition’s biggest season yet and we are delighted to confirm the extension of Kayo Sports’ commitment to bringing our world class product to fans alongside our existing broadcast partners.

“The standalone status of WBBL05 is a testament to the strength of women’s cricket in Australia and further reinforces it as the world’s leading domestic cricket competition for women. We can’t wait for the summer of Big Bash to begin at North Sydney Oval on 18 October."
