Welcome to a special edition of Around the Grounds where today we will be focusing on the 12th Edition of the Big Bash League. After a rough past couple of seasons with the pandemic it looks to be systems normal for another summer of T20 cricket.

Draftstars are back with fantasy cricket contests for all 61 games of the tournament and some tasty pools for all price points. For those who are trying out fantasy cricket for the first time, or for seasoned veterans looking to get a leg up on the opposition, there is plenty of guidance from our partners who can put you in the right direction.


Up on the Roar website is a fantastic guide on how to play T20 cricket on Draftstars. It might be a simple game to get into but check out the 7 points right now to get in the game. Tell your mates to check it out if they are keen to give it a go.

Fantasy Insider’s Draftstars Cruncher is back for another season of free BBL Draftstars projection and free use of the Lineup Cruncher. Use the projections from Fantasy Insider or if you think your favourite player deserves a higher projection, then easily edit the projections yourself.

Daily Fantasy Rankings are back with another bumper season of game-by-game previews, providing analysis of team changes, news, injuries and how each match will pan out. DFR will also provide their expert tips on who to look out for and maybe those who are ‘not required’ for your teams. Check it out as today’s match is on the site now.

Also available on DFR is their free use of their Data Tools. Deep dive into stats going back to BBL07 with team-by-team Draftstars scores + look who gives away the most fantasy points in their ‘Points Against’ and ‘Venue’ tables. Very handy to find out which ground scores more fantasy points than the other. You will be surprised to see which ground is a batsman paradise…

Looking for more BBL analysis and data driven projections for Draftstars? Look at Wicky with their Big Bash Bible and Articles throughout the tournament. Team by team previews are now available, with predicted XI’s and key players to look out for from each team.

The BBL Cricket Stats Bible is ready to go with Draftstars projections that are easily downloaded by the Bible and can be directly imported into the Fantasy Insider cruncher. Data is refreshed after the Bat Flip and teams are announced, so drop in before the match for a fresh set of numbers.
