Player availability: Ins and outs across BBL13

With international players moving around the competition across the BBL season, we've outlined when each player will come and go from the tournament.


Following the Big Bash fixtures is one thing, following the player movement across the tournament is another.

Like the fixtures though, some small study will make navigating BBL13 easy enough, so don’t be daunted as players drop in and out of teams.

Firstly, a big thanks to Benny from Honeyball who has done plenty of the legwork in bringing together the international calendar which I’ve used to aid this article.

For Big Bash and Supercoach beginners, plenty of players among sides are available only for varying stages of the tournament due to contractual obligations for teams around the world, be it international or domestic.

It’s rare we know the exact date a certain player will come and go, but it’s easy enough to narrow it to within a couple of days either side which enables us to plan our Supercoach teams accordingly.

We’ll update this article throughout the tournament as news drops.
