KFC Big Bash Begins on Ten On Friday

With just a few sleeps until  the first match of the KFC T20 Big Bash League kicks off on TEN, the teams and the commentary team are gearing up for all of the explosive action.

Join TEN’s expert commentators Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, Damien Fleming and hosts Mel McLaughlin and Mark Howard live from the MCG on Friday at 7.30pm (AEDT) as they bring viewers the first match of the season.

Victorian rivals, Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades, will face off at the MCG in an electrifying start to the season that will set the tone for an epic summer of cricket.

The bumper opening weekend will also include a derby game between the Sydney Sixers and the Sydney Thunder at the SCG; an afternoon showdown between the Hobart Hurricanes and the Adelaide Strikers at Blundstone Arena in Hobart; and the long-awaited Final rematch between Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers at the Gabba.

To celebrate the start of the KFC T20 Big Bash League season, Network Ten and KFC Australia have launched the KFC Million Dollar Six competition, giving home viewers the chance to win $1 million.
