Let’s take a look at the full squads of the participating teams of BBL 2021-22:

Adelaide Strikers

BBL

Adelaide Strikers will look forward to the new season of BBL. They will be well prepared this year to win the title after getting eliminated last in the eliminator match. Strikers finished 5th in the BBL10. However, even before the beginning of the league, they have suffered some major blows as few players might not be available to play the tournament. With Jason Gillespie as the team coach, things look strong for the team and will be expected to perform better in the upcoming season. Read our full Adelaide Strikers team preview here

Adelaide Strikers Squad:

  • Wes Agar
  • Alex Carey
  • Harry Conway

Brisbane Heat

BBL

After qualifying for one game in BBL10, Brisbane Heat will be coming with a good amount of confidence for BBL11. Brisbane Hear players made a big impact on the league last year and they finished 4th on the point table. Xavier Bartlett and James Bazley emerged as the top players in the last season from the team. They both will be hoping to repeat their performances this year as well. Chris Lynn has been replaced from the captainship by 31-year-old Jimmy Peirson. Read our full Brisbane Heat team preview here

Hobart Hurricanes

BBL

Two-time Big Bash League runner-up, Hobert Hurricanes, had a very disappointing last year in BBL. Hurricanes have got a very strong squad ahead of the tournament and they carry the confidence to do wonders. Since Matthew Wade has not been called for the Ashes, he will be leading the team. He was very good with his performance in the T20 world cup and he will be hoping to continue the same in BBL. After a lot of controversial headlines, v will be the head coach of the team. Read our full Hobert Hurricanes team preview here

Hobert Hurricanes Squad:

Melbourne Renegades

BBL

Big Bash League season 10 was not a great season for Melbourne Renegades. With just four wins in the previous tournament, they finished last in the point table. Skipper Aaron Finch was questioned because of his team’s form. He had to step down from the captaincy although the reasons were completely different. His recent form in the T20 world isn’t great as well & hence the team must be worried about their batting lineup. Read our full Melbourne Renegades team preview here

Melbourne Renegades Squad:

  • Cameron Boyce
  • Zak Evans
  • Aaron Finch
  • Jake Fraser-McGurk
  • Sam Harper
  • Marcus Harris

Melbourne Stars

BBL

When a team has big names attached to the squad, it is always expected to perform better in any tournament. But that’s not the case with Melbourne Stars. It is a squad with top names like Glenn Maxwell, Adam Zampa, and Marcus Stoin. Even then Melbourne Stars turned out to be underachievers in the last season of the Big Bash League. Viewers had high expectations from the team as they reached the finals of the BBL8 and BBL9. But on the contrary, Stars completely failed to perform and finished 7th in the last season. Read our full Melbourne Stars team preview here

Melbourne Stars Squad:

  • Hilton Cartwright
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile
  • Seb Gotch
  • Liam Hatcher
  • Clint Hinchliffe
  • Nick Larkin

  • Sam Elliot
  • Beau Webster

Perth Scorchers

The most consistent performing team and three times tournament winners, Perth Scorchers, will be eying another win this year. In the last season, they reached all the way to the finals but finished second in the tournament. After a decade of presence in the tournament, winning three trophies, and finishing up 2nd for two times, Perth Scorchers will be hoping to claim the trophy again. Scorchers are filled with the best T20 performers and their skipper Mitchell Marsh is in the form as we all witness in the ICC T20 Worldcup. Read our full Perth Scorchers team preview here

Perth Scorchers Squad:

  • Ashton Agar
  • Cameron Bancroft
  • Jason Behrendorff
  • Aaron Hardie
  • Peter Hatzoglou

  • Kurtis Patterson
  • Jhye Richardson

The Sixers is the most successful team in the league and they will be looking forward to winning their third consistent title win after winning BBL9 and BBL 10. Sydney Sixers are also the winner of the first season of the Big Bash League. Read our full Sydney Sixers team preview here

Sydney Thunder

BBL10 was one of the best seasons for Sydney Thunder. They finished third on the point table and had a fantastic run in the tournament. Looking at the performance from their previous season, it will be difficult to beat the Thunder this year as well. They are one of the teams who are expected to win the tournament this year. Their squad has not gone through some big changes and they have almost the same squad as last year. It will be interesting to see how will Sydney Thunder compete in the tournament.
