BBL: Hitting boundaries is what every batsman looks for when he is playing in the T20 format. Because this format demands scoring more runs and hitting more boundaries. And in this article, we will discuss such stats and will cover the list of batters with the most fours in the history of the Big Bash League.
The BBL 2022 will be the 12th edition of the tournament, which started way back in 2011. The Perth Scorchers won the previous season in 2021-22. Now they will defend their title in the upcoming season. The tournament will start on December 13 and will host a total of 61 matches. Thus, another action-packed BBL season is due in just a couple of months.
