Queensland Cricket CEO Terry Svenson expressed his sincere thanks to the fans for being supportive throughout the season.

“Likewise, the support from our sponsors and partners went over and above the usual commercial structures as we found innovative and creative ways to work together and deliver outstanding experiences,’’ Svenson said.

The resolve shown by the playing squad and staff was highlighted by Svenson as deserving praise.

“We certainly thank and acknowledge the great efforts of the players, coaches and support staff, and their families and friends, for ensuring the season was a success despite the challenges faced.

“They spent time away from their loved ones in various bio-secure bubbles across the tournament and produced exciting and competitive matches.”

“Across the year, the WBBL and BBL teams were within a game of the grand final. We will continue to build squads and cultures that will see us have success into the future. 

“Both the WBBL and BBL remain our most important vehicles to get girls and boys playing cricket and we know we are in the strong positions to continue growing both leagues.”

Both the WBBL and BBL Heat teams finished third this season.
