The Big Bash League has been viewed as one of the big winners out of Cricket Australia's recent announcement of a new TV deal from the start of the 2024-25 summer.

The deal, which will run for seven summers, will see the BBL cut to 43 games in total, with each team playing 10 games rather than the 14 that they currently do.

The 14-game season - as well as extended finals, which has dragged the BBL into February - has been in place since the start of the last TV deal which kicked in at the commencement of the 2018-19 summer of cricket.

The new TV deal not kicking in until the start of the 2024-25 summer though meant there was due to be one more scheduled season of 14 games per team and a season likely being extended into February.

However, with Channel Seven and Fox Sports being the networks who have won the right to continue broadcasting cricket in Australia, they are now on board with the revised season length, and Cricket Australia are set to launch discussions with the two networks over bringing the changes to the BBL a season early.

"The current season is one of the best we have had in a number of years. We're in the middle of a strong resurgence in the BBL," League boss Alistair Dobson told AAP.

"While the new agreement comes into place after BBL14, we will sit down with all our partners, clubs, stakeholders and players and look at this season and what might be the best structure for the BBL13 season that is in between."

Cricket Australia have been considering a shortened season for the last 24 months.

Despite the fact it is the most viewed competition per game on average, crowd and overall TV audience numbers, as well as general interest, have struggled with the competition dragging out on either side of the school holidays.

It's understood Cricket Australia will also cut afternoon matches back in the shortened season, while matches in the same city as Test matches and clumps of games in the same city will be avoided.

There is a hope the shortened season will also attract stronger overseas talent to the competition.
