The BBL’s official fantasy sports game, KFC SuperCoach, celebrated its launch earlier today at Sydney University, with Australian cricket legend and ambassador, Mike Hussey, treating attending media to a batting masterclass and Q&A.
The 2007 ODI World-Cup winner, displayed his full array of strokemaking in the ‘Can you bowl out Mr Cricket’ challenge for the attending media, who also benefited from batting guidance from Hussey as well as getting his top tips for this year’s KFC SuperCoach BBL competition.
Since retiring from all forms of cricket in 2016, Hussey has embarked on a successful coaching and punditry career and is returning as the SuperCoach BBL ambassador for a second season.
The free and fun fantasy game provides Aussies with the opportunity to win plenty of awards, including weekly cash prizes and vouchers as well as the chance to gain bragging rights over family, friends and colleagues within mini-league competitions.
With last season’s BBL enjoying a sharp rise in popularity and a number of household names gracing these shores, including Quinton de Kock and Harry Brook, this season’s edition looks set to be the biggest and best yet.
SuperCoach BBL Ambassador, Mike Hussey, said:
“I’ve been a keen SuperCoach player for a number of years, so I’m delighted to be back again as this year’s ambassador. It’s a great way of trying to get one over some of those close to you, a few of my old teammates fancy themselves at the game so I’ll be looking to put them back in their place this season!”
Registrations are now open for KFC SuperCoach BBL, with the season opener on Thursday December 07, seeing last year’s losing finalists, Brisbane Heat, take on Melbourne Stars at the Gabba.
