    The second WBBL season has already gotten underway today. With a few extra matches to be broadcast on Channel 10 this time around (including two today and two tomorrow), might be a good chance to get some discussion about the women's game going.

    With all teams playing each other twice, it makes for a much longer schedule than the men's, so plenty of action to check out considering the 47 non-televised matches can also be watched for free on CA's website and app, as well on the WBBL's facebook page.

    Here's a list of matches that Ten will be showing according to their website:

    Saturday 10 December, Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades, 1330 on TEN and TEN HD
    Saturday 10 December, Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Stars, 1800 on TEN and TEN HD
    Sunday 11 December, Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes, 1030 on TEN and TEN HD
    Sunday 11 December, Sydney Sixers vs Brisbane Heat, 1400 on TEN and TEN HD
    Saturday 31 December, Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers, 1400 on TEN and TEN HD
    Sunday 1 January, Melbourne Stars vs Melbourne Renegades, 1400 on TEN and TEN HD
    Sunday 8 January, Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat, 1400 on TEN and TEN HD
    Saturday 14 January, Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder, 1400 on TEN and TEN HD
    Saturday 21 January, Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Stars, 1200 on TEN and TEN HD
    Tuesday 24 January, Semi Final 1, 1500 on ONE
    Wednesday 25 January, Semi Final 2, 1500 on ONE
    Saturday 28 January, Final, 1400 on TEN and TEN HD
    (All times shown are AEDT)

    Hobart managed to chase down Perth's fairly typical total of 119 with six balls to spare in the tournament opener earlier, while the reigning champs Sydney Thunder kick off their campaign tonight. Looking forward to hopefully seeing some good competitive T20 cricket with a nice blend of local and international talent!

    strikers struggled early with the bat being about 6/30 odd eventually making it to 116 all out halfway through the 20th over, thanks to a good innings from devine

    Yeah the Renegades made a hash of that run chase. Despite reckless batting at the start and multiple run outs during the innings, Molineux probably would have got them there if they were a bit smarter about getting/keeping her on strike.

    Can't see us winning if Meg Lanning loses her wicket early, hope she bats well. Great to have the game on FTA and in prime time. :thumbsu:

    Certainly a more entertaining game than Strikers-Renegades earlier.

    Some nice shots being played by but I find the fielding a bit weak, seems to be quite a few sitters being dropped (not talking specifically about the current game, just what I've noticed in general from the three matches so far).

    Dropping a catch is the worst feeling you can get in cricket. Imagine doing it on TV??? Then having it replayed???

    Perry is quite good square of the wicket either side
