The Big Bash is back. Cue the excitement. Cue the fanfare. Cue the fireworks. Cue the chaos.
And what chaos we have seen in the days leading up to opening night.
First, Michael Clarke, Captain Australia, hero to the masses, world's No.1 Test batsman, is withdrawn from his one and only scheduled appearance for the Sydney Thunder by Cricket Australia's High Performance crew.
Ben Hilfenhaus is likewise advised not to play for the Hobart Hurricanes as a precautionary measure with Test cricket in mind.
In the same memo, injuries to John Hastings and Josh Hazlewood from their Test duties last week are outlined. Hastings is ruled out of the Melbourne Stars' opening match. Hazlewood joins James Pattinson, Pat Cummins, and Mitchell Marsh as non-participants in the entire tournament.
