Who won what in the 2020-21 Australian domestic season

With plenty of tweaks and a little bit of shortening here and there, all the major competitions were played

The first title of the season was decided in late November when Sydney Thunder won the WBBL for the second time by comprehensively beating Melbourne Stars in the final at North Sydney Oval after the competition had been staged entirely in a Sydney-based hub. Shabnim Ismail and Sammy-Jo Johnson were almost unplayable with the new ball and the Stars, who had led the way in the regular season, could only limp to 86 for 9. It was a target comfortably overhauled as Heather Knight and Rachael Haynes cantered home.

Leading run-scorer: Beth Mooney (551, Perth Scorchers)
Leading wicket-taker: Sammy-Jo Johnson (22, Sydney Thunder)

A tournament that began in multiple mini-hubs then managed to traverse Covid-19 outbreaks and the related border closures to come to a conclusion at the SCG – the final being the only game of the season played in New South Wales – with the Sydney Sixers securing back-to-back titles having spent their entire campaign on the road. James Vince’s 95 off 60 balls was the standout as the Sixers gave Perth Scorchers too much to chase despite their powerful batting order. Dan Christian was able to add another trophy to his cabinet.
