The 2012–13 Big Bash League season was the second season of the Big Bash League, the premier Twenty20 cricket competition in Australia. The tournament began on 7 December 2012, with the final being held on 19 January 2013.

The defending champions, Sydney Sixers were knocked out in the group stage. Melbourne Renegades finished first in the group stage with 7 wins and a loss. Perth Scorchers, Melbourne Stars and Brisbane Heat were the other teams to reach the semi-finals.

In the first semi-final, Brisbane Heat defeated Melbourne Renegades by 15 runs to make it to the finals of the Big Bash League for the first time. In the other semi-final, Perth Scorchers defeated Melbourne Stars by 8 wickets in a rain curtailed match to make it to the finals for the second time in a row. Melbourne Stars failed to advance to the final for the second successive year.

In the final, Brisbane Heat beat Perth Scorchers by 34 runs to lift their first Big Bash League title. Perth Scorchers finished runners-up for the second successive year.

Aaron Finch of Melbourne Renegades was named Player of the tournament for scoring 332 runs in the tournament including an unbeaten century. Shaun Marsh of Perth Scorchers finished as the leading run-getter of the tournament as he amassed 412 runs in 9 innings. Ben Laughlin of Hobart Hurricanes was the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. He took 14 wickets in 8 matches.

The highest individual score of the tournament was 112* by Luke Pomersbach of Brisbane Heat in the semi-final game against Melbourne Renegades. Lasith Malinga took the best bowling figures of the tournament, capturing 6 wickets for 7 runs for Melbourne Stars against Perth Scorchers. This was the best bowling figures in Twenty20 cricket of Malinga's career and also the best bowling in a Twenty20 game on Australian soil.

The two finalists, Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat qualified for the 2013 Champions League Twenty20.

Format[edit]

This season featured the same amount of teams as the previous season but included a new format with an expanded group stage. This new format consists of 35 matches. The new group stage has each team play eight matches, two of which are against the same team. The four best performing teams from the group stage advance to the knockout stage.

The rules for the tournament deviate from those in the laws of cricket where any no ball will be followed by a free hit.[1]

Signings[edit]

The official Player Signing Window opened on 9 July 2012 and closed on 20 July 2012. Each team had a salary cap of A$1 million and could sign up to a maximum of 18 players, but no fewer than 14, including two international players. The minimum playing contract was set at A$20,000.[2]

Unlike the 2011/12 inaugural season, Cricket Australia decided that each player had the opportunity to sign multi-year deals [3] with the contract window opening on 9 July 2012 and ending on 20 July.
