The Front Bar: Nov 25

Molloy, Pang & Maher back for the first of two Cricket editions.

The Front Bar returns tomorrow for the first of two Ashes editions, as part of Seven’s Summer of Cricket.

The WBBL finals series also kick off tonight at 7.00pm AEDT on 7mate with a final on Saturday from 7.00pm AEDT on Seven / 7mate.

Seven’s WBBL finals coverage will be led by cricket’s premier commentary team, featuring Lisa Sthalekar, Brad Hodge, Callum Ferguson, Abbey Gelmi, Andy Maher, Jason Richardson, Emma Inglis and Ryan Daniels.

Front Bar‘s Mick Molloy said, “It’s great because we can all relate to cricketers. Andy’s like Don Bradman, but the Don in the 1970s. I’m your Merv Hughes type who does the heavy lifting, and Pang is like Phil Tufnell – funny, but can’t bowl to save himself.”

The WBBL 07 final series should be a classic, as the world’s best women’s T20 competition is decided over three sudden-death matches featuring the top four teams.

The Front Bar will also be back with a bang tomorrow night when two of cricket’s and the Ashes’ all-time greats – former England star all-rounder Lord Ian Botham and Australia’s all-time leading run-scorer, Ricky Ponting – join Mick Molloy, Sam Pang and Andy Maher at the bar.

The WBBL finals series kicks off tonight at 7.00pm AEDT on 7mate with The Eliminator, a mouth-watering match-up between the regular season’s third and fourth-placed teams, Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers, at Adelaide Oval.

The winner of that match takes on the second-placed Melbourne Renegades on Thursday night in The Challenger at Adelaide Oval, live and free on 7mate at 7.00pm AEDT.

The team that wins The Challenger will earn the right to face the minor premiers, Perth Scorchers, in the match everyone’s been waiting for – the WBBL Final.

8.30pm on Seven and returning next Thursday, 2 December with guests including the great Rod Marsh.
