T20 Big Bash Cricket looks finger lickin’ good for the  Teams and Captains
Cricket Australia is seeking to further popularise the short version of the traditional game of cricket with ever more colourful outfits and American style nicknames for the eight competing teams in the KFC Twenty20 Big Bash League.  The T20 Big Bash bowls the first ball on 16 December 2011 with a match between Brad Haddin’s Sydney Sixers and James Hopes’ Brisbane Heat at the SCG.  (see the T20 Teams and their Captains below)

Judging by the enthusiastic response of several hundred guests attending the launch of the new KFC Twenty20 Big Bash League at Carriageworks in Sydney this week Cricket Australia appears to have hit a six in appealing to a younger demography of potential fans.

KFC Twenty20 Big Bash League players from the teams were delivered to the venue in different modes, most notably, the Sydney Sixers aboard a pink stretch Hummer accompagnied by cheerleaders and cross city rivals the Sydney Thunder via Harley Davidson motorcycles.  Guests at the launch were the first to learn of the new skippers line up as each of the eight appeared firstly via hologram before arriving on stage in person.
 
KFC Twenty20 Big Bash League’s big surprise on the night though was to parade so many muscular athletic cricketers sporting various shades of clothing not least the towering 186 centemetered Brett Lee in a fuzzy pink shirt, the selected brand colour for the Sydney Sixers. 

Erin McNaught, playing the role of assistant DJ, was another surprise but Erin  insisted to MiSociety that she has no ambition whatsoever of becoming a DJ.  Erin said  she was just happy to support the event with her  guest appearance on the DJ podium.  Erin wasn’t seen licking her fingers or partaking of all the KFC making the rounds of the field at this bash.
 
MiSociety took a the opportunity on the night to judge the teams pre-season in the fashion stakes department.  We rate the Hobart Hurricanes (decked out in purple) as outright winners and the Perth Scorchers (decked out in orange) as lagging behind the rest of the field.
