There are some exciting additions to the Big Bash League this year. The 2019-2020 edition will see the introduction of a strategic break (strategic breaks have been an integral part of IPL (Indian Premier League) and now they will also be part of the Big Bash League. The difference is that Big Bash will have just one strategic break per innings while IPL has two breaks in each inning. The batting team will have the privilege of picking the timing of the strategic break between the 7th and 13th overs. The duration of the break will be 90 seconds. The rules regarding the super over have also been changed. When a super over in the group stage ends in a tie, both teams will split the points. However, the rules for a super over in knockouts are different. The teams will play multiple super overs in the knockouts till one of the teams has more runs.
