The format of the game has been gorgeously designed with eight teams taking part in the competition. The Big Bash League Teams are not primarily city based rather they have been branded on the CAPITAL OF STATE, as Perth being Capital of Western Australia.
The idea behind is to unite the states and engage more and more people in the game as there is a huge difference between the population of the CITY and a STATE. A Single City Big Bash Team would engage only one city while a STATE participating franchise would engage the entire state.
The franchises would have been formulated on the basis of the capital city. The Capital city of the state has been bestowed the badge of the franchise. A very good example is that of the Perth Scorchers representing the Western Australia.
It is also considered here that Sydney and Melbourne are exceptions as both the cities hold two teams Sydney is classified as Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder whereas Melbourne is categorized as Melbourne Renegades & Melbourne Stars.
The official proclamation of the Squad Names and Team Colours took place on the Sixth Day of the month of April Twenty Eleven.
