“We are very excited to be partnering with Nickelodeon for the sixth season of the KFC Big Bash
League,” said Cricket Australia Head of the Big Bash League, Anthony Everard. “Nickelodeon is known around the world as one of the most fun and entertaining brands and we can’t wait for them to be a part of the BBL experience for our fans.
“The BBL was a huge hit with families last summer because of the fast-paced on-field action and
family friendly atmosphere at every match, and I am sure that BBL|06 will take things to the next
level, thanks to our partnership with Nickelodeon.
