The Big Bash League 2022 will begin on Tuesday, December 13, when Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars will face off at the Manuka Oval in Canberra.
In the previous tournament season, Sydney Thunder advanced to the knockout phase but were unable to advance to the final.

On the other hand, Melbourne Stars placed seventh in the points table the year before.
They will be hoping for better results this season after a disappointing campaign last year.
The Stars will be led by Adam Zampa if senior all-rounder Glenn Maxwell is injured.
Jason Sangha, on the other hand, will be in charge of The Syndey Thunder.
