BBL 2022/23: Manuka Oval, Canberra Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

The 2022/23 edition of the Big Bash League will start on December 13th. A few games would take place at the Manuka Oval. On that note, here, we look at the pitch report of Manuka Oval and the weather conditions in Canberra for BBL 2022/23.

In terms of viewership, BBL has to do well, especially with new leagues such as SA20 and ILT20 entering the fray. BBL has always tried to add innovation to the game but has complicated the matters at times. Also, this time as well, some of the top Aussie stars will not be a part of the event. For fans to throng the stadium, the board must address this topic.

The likes of Glenn Maxwell will be absent due to the freak injury he suffered. Cricket Australia will be keen to discover some more fine talents who can serve the national team.

Canberra weather conditions for BBL 2022/23


The temperatures could reach as high as 25 degrees Celisus during the season in Canberra. While the first week of BBL 2022/23 may not have any interruptions due to rain in the Australian capital, the next few weeks, until the new year, we could see some rainfall.

In January, though, we could witness a lot of sunny days. Temperatures will drop late in the day and barring a few days of rainfall threat, Canberra is set to be suitable for cricket in the beginning of January 2023.
