T20 is the premium format of the women's game and the WBBL is an exciting tournament that will increase the promotion and exposure of women's cricket.
Aligning the WBBL brands with the BBL brands will help cricket to appeal to a broader audience and gain greater exposure.
"We see T20 as the premium format of the women's game and the rebel WBBL is an exciting concept that will increase the promotion and exposure of women's cricket," said Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland.
"We want cricket to be the number one sport for girls and women in Australia and we believe that the rebel WBBL can assist this goal by creating an inspiring visible pathway for the next generation of players, fans and volunteers.
"The WBBL will build on this foundation and will create a clear participation pathway for girls and their families, who are already engaged with cricket through the BBL."
