Big Guns Lyrics. [Verse 1] Hit me like a ton of bricks Like a crashing wave Everywhere I turn there's tricks Up your sleeve again . [Chorus] There's nowhere to run when all is coming undone You can try, you can try But you can't hide from the BIG GUNS There's nowhere to run when all is coming undone

AB de Villiers can be one of the men to help revitalise the Big Bash League when he arrives in Brisbane, according to Heat master blaster Chris Lynn.

This summer's BBL is arguably the most important in the competition's nine-year history, after the league attracted criticism for the first time in its existence last summer.

Tuesday's first game between the Heat and Sydney Thunder in Queensland will begin a more compact season that also includes an expanded finals series.

Crucially, organisers believe there will be far more star power on offer after the Australian competition lost out to the shorter Bangladesh Premier League last summer.

Steve Smith and Josh Hazlewood will feature for the Sydney Sixers, while Dale Steyn (Melbourne Stars) Alex Hales (Thunder) and David Miller (Hobart) are among the other new big-name internationals.

None, though, will have the pulling power of South African superstar de Villiers, who will be available for the Heat from January 14.

"Yep, absolutely (he can reinvigorate it). With a couple of guys, not just AB but Dale Steyn and a few of the guys," Lynn told AAP.

Big Bash an ideal T20 World Cup tune-up

  Big Bash an ideal T20 World Cup tune-up Englishman Tom Curran, returning for a second season with the Sydney Sixers, wants to learn as much as possible as the T20 World Cup in Australia looms large.Curran made his Test debut in the 2017/18 Ashes then returned to Australia the following summer, excelling with bat and ball in a dominant debut BBL season.

The Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) is the Australian women's domestic Twenty20 cricket competition. The WBBL replaced the Australian Women's Twenty20 Cup

"I think with the international signings not only Brisbane have got, but all the other franchises, it's going to be exciting.

"It's a little shorter, jam-packed and action packed.

"We took a hit last year for the Big Bash. We just got a little bit too greedy. And the fans were wanting footy season to come around.

"Whereas now I think the fans are going to be wanting more."

Brisbane will enter the tournament as one of the favourites on the back of de Villiers, while English recruit Tom Banton will also be dangerous.

Defending-champions Melbourne Renegades have also improved their squad, with Shaun Marsh joining and Aaron Finch and Marcus Harris likely to be more available.

Under the competition's new structure, the top five will make the finals with the top-two teams getting an initial second chance.

That should help break the curse of the minor premiers, where the top-ranked team has missed the decider in six of the past seven seasons.

The regular season will also be complete within the summer school holidays, as opposed to last year when it dragged into mid-February.

"The ability for the competition to make changes on the back of pretty strong feedback from fans, players and broadcast partners ... is huge," BBL boss Alistair Dobson said.

"We've learned from some of the issues from last year, but also some of the things that went well.

"And we think the finals is going to have that huge crescendo to the season. Add that to the players coming into the competition we think it is set up really well."
