Venue confirmed for Brisbane Heat v Perth Scorchers clash
The KFC Big Bash League has confirmed the Adelaide Oval will host the January 26 regular season match between Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers, originally scheduled for the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The decision was made to relocate the match to the Adelaide Oval following consultation with state governments, clubs and broadcast partners due to state border closures and their related impacts.
The match will begin at 12:35pm ACDT (1:05pm AEDT) and will be the first in a triple header on the day and will be broadcast on Foxtel, Kayo and SEN.
Two matches at the Melbourne Cricket Ground will follow and round out the KFC BBL|10 regular season, with the Melbourne Renegades to take on Hobart Hurricanes at 4:10pm AEDT and Melbourne Stars to host Sydney Sixers at 7:50pm AEDT. Both MCG fixtures will be shown live on Seven Foxtel, Kayo and SEN.
Tickets to the Adelaide Oval match will be on sale from 3:00pm ACDT on January 22 at cricket.com.au/tickets. Tickets to the MCG double-header and all other remaining KFC BBL|10 regular season matches are also available at the same link.
The KFC BBL|10 Finals series schedule will be announced on January 26 once positions on the BBL|10 ladder are finalised.
