WBBL (also known as Women's Big Bash League) is a domestic women's T20 tournament organised every year since the 2015-16 season by Cricket Australia (CA).
The WBBL tournament, which replaced the Australian Women's T20 Cup that ran from 2007-08 to 2014-15 season, features eight city-based franchises, branded identically to the men's Big Bash League (BBL).
In the eight editions of WBBL held so far, five teams have gone on to lift the title with three teams winning the tournament two times each. Sydney Sixers, Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat have won the WBBL title twice, while Perth Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers have won it once.
Sydney Sixers have also reached the finals most, having finished as runners up three times and winner two times (2017-18 & 2018-19) in five final appearances.
The next team with most final appearances is Perth Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers. Both teams have appeared in the finals of WBBL three times so far.
Scorchers won the title in 2021-22 and finished runners up in the first two editions in 2015-16 & 20, while Strikers won the title in 2022-23 season and finished runners up in 2019-20 & 2021-22 season.
The inaugural champions Sydney Thunder won the title in 2020-21, while, Brisbane Heat won in the 2018-19 & 2019-20 seasons. Melbourne Stars also have finished runners up in 2020-21 season.
Melbourne Renegades and Hobart Hurricanes, on the other hand, are the only other teams competing in the WBBL, but they also happen to be the two teams that have never reached a final in the seven editions so far.
