Stars coach prefers shorter BBL season

Melbourne Stars coach David Hussey believes a further condensed Big Bash season is the way to go.

Speaking on SportsLine ahead of the Stars clash with the Scorchers this week the former Australian international felt a few years back was about right.

"Yeah I've got a foot in each camp, I thought last year was way too long." Hussey said.

"There was to much break where as this year it seems to be non-stop and always on the go which I actually prefer because that means you have to use your depth of squad and the list of your team is so critically important, so there fresh and healthy in order to play your best cricket come finals time.

Hussey believes money could be saved on teams having to do so much back and forth travel.

"I do like the shortened and condensed season but I feel for the teams that have horrific schedules and ours in no different as well."

"Personally I'd only like 10 or 11 games and then finals and if it was up to me I'd then condense the flying so Perth would play Sydney, Sydney then Melbourne, Melbourne and more a consistent time at home. So when you are at home, you are at home 100 per cent of the time."

The Melbourne stars sit on the top of the BBL table.
