Cricket Australia has today announced the renewal of the partnership between global kids’ entertainment brand, Nickelodeon and the KFC Big Bash League (BBL) for a third consecutive season!


The renewed deal follows the success of two seasons in partnership, as Nickelodeon continues to work closely with Cricket Australia to strengthen the BBL’s position as a one of the top family-friendly entertainment options of the Australian summer.

At the eight ‘Nick-ified’ matches this season, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be giving away family trips to Nickelodeon Land at Sea World on the Gold Coast, including accommodation at Sea World Resort. Fans will also compete in fun-filled challenges on the field-of-play during innings breaks, while Nickelodeon’s ‘Nick Squad’ will be making a comeback to entertain families off the field with inflatables and water play activations to keep kids cool throughout the day.


There will also be an opportunity for one lucky family to win an exclusive trip to New York City at the BBL|08 Final. The incredible prize includes return flights to New York City, five nights’ accommodation and a variety of family experiences to enjoy.


Cricket Australia Head of Big Bash Leagues, Kim McConnie said: “It’s a pleasure to be partnering with Nickelodeon for the eighth season of the KFC BBL.


“This summer, more fans will be able to enjoy the fast-paced on-field action than ever before, as the competition moves to a full Home and Away fixture.


“We believe this will be one of the most exciting BBL seasons to-date and we look forward to working with Nickelodeon once again to deliver more fun and enjoyment to our fans across the country”


General Manager and Vice President of Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand Ben Cox said “We are thrilled to once again be partnering with the BBL to provide blockbuster kids entertainment both on and off the field.


“Nickelodeon’s mission is to make the world a more playful place and we are excited to be giving kids around the country the opportunity to experience our brand in new and irreverent ways”

The wacky show designed for kids will be aired on Nickelodeon across the summer and features exclusive behind-the-scenes BBL action including epic sixes, world-class catches and stubborn seagulls.


Crash the Bash will premiere on Nickelodeon, Saturday 12 January between 7am – 10am, until Sunday 17 February. Full episodes of Crash The Bash will also be available on the award-winning Nick Play app after they premiere on TV.


New episodes of Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be aired throughout the BBL|08 season on Nickelodeon and the new character costumes will appear for the first time in Australia at the eight ‘Nick-ified’ matches.


General Admission prices for the upcoming BBL season remain unchanged for the eighth consecutive year, with adult tickets from $20, kids tickets from $5, and family tickets from $42.50.

Miah Madden Nickelodeon's Crash the Bash Interview

Sixteen-Year-Old Miah Madden Revealed As New Crash The Bash Co-Host


Nickelodeon has announced sixteen-year-old rising star Miah Madden, as a co-host for the locally produced kids' entertainment series Crash the Bash, premiering on Nickelodeon this January.

Miah will join legendary cricketer and Crash the Bash veteran Lee Carseldine, adding her own spin to the third season of the Logie-nominated series.

The unsuspecting duo will gate-crash the Big Bash party getting up to mischief with cricket fans of all sizes, pulling pranks, setting fan challenges and basically having a ball between balls as they make their way around the heaving cricket stadiums of Australia.

Sydney-based Madden is no stranger to the screen, appearing in a string of television shows including Redfern Now and The Moodys, in addition to two Australian films, The Sapphires (2012), where she played Jessica Mauboy's character Julie as a child, and more recently Australia Day (2017), where she was cast as April Tucker, a runaway Aboriginal teenager.

Fun Facts about Miah Madden

Miah grew-up surrounded by a creative family, her older sister Madeleine Madden is an actress (currently in Queensland filming the live-action Dora the Explorer movie alongside Eva Longoria), brother Tyson Perkins a cinematographer, and her auntie Rachel Perkins, a director and producer who founded Blackfella Films, a production company with a focus on Indigenous Australian stories

She has just begun her HSC and has her sights set on becoming an Indigenous Human Rights Lawyer

When not at school or on set you will find Miah in the dance studio, out surfing or at the athletics track with friends

The new season of Crash the Bash, with co-hosts Lee Carseldine and Miah Madden, features fun cricket sketches, fake ads, pranks and Australian cricket stars such as Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon behaving like you've never seen before.

Taking over Nickelodeon (Foxtel [701], Fetch [146]) each weekend from 12th January until 17th February, Crash the Bash will air as a short-form video series in between live-action shows, The Thundermans, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Henry Danger and more, offering entertainment throughout the morning from 7am until 10am.

Full Crash the Bash episodes will also be available on Nick Play, which can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store and Google Play.

Interview with Miah Madden

Question: How does it feel to be the co-host of Crash The Bash?

Miah Madden: It's a privilege to be a part of the Crash The Bash team as I've been super keen to have a hosting opportunity for a really long time! Crash The Bash is such a great show to be a part of due to its talented cast and crew in addition to the funny and entertaining nature of the show itself. Being a co-host allows me to showcase my own personality while presenting funny skits and scenes alongside my talented co-host Lee which has been so much fun!

Question: What's it like working alongside Lee Carseldine?

Miah Madden: I've absolutely loved working alongside Lee! We have a really great dynamic on screen and always find a way to come up with funny commentary and remarks to add into our skits and scenes. Lee is extremely talented, shown through his television debuts and sporting successes. He helped make it super easy for me to fit in while showing me the ropes of how hosting is done!

Question: How will you balance HSC and filming Crash The Bash?

Miah Madden: I've had the honour of working in the film industry for about nine years now, so juggling school and acting jobs has always on the radar for me. Throughout the years I've become pretty good at being able to balance sport, school and acting, so when presented with the opportunity to co-host Crash The Bash I was all in. Crash The Bash is being filmed in my school summer holidays which is very convenient as it means I'm not missing out on school, however I have to work harder in the holidays to stay ahead and on top of school work. Acting is a career I would love to pursue after school- so why not get a head start!

Question: What inspired your passion for film and television?

Miah Madden: I've been very passionate about working in the film and television industry ever since I landed my first role in a commercial at a young age. I loved being able to slip into another character that attains different characteristics to me and tell their story from their perspective. As the years went on and I worked in the industry more, my love for film and television grew as I performed a range of genres and characters. Currently, I hope to pursue acting as a career after school as a result for my love of cinematography and performing!

Question: What's a typical day like, for you?

Miah Madden: On a school day, I wake up at 6:30am to make a healthy breakfast and smoothie. I'll start school at 8:20am and finish at 3:20pm, usually staying back in the library to study until late or going to training for athletics or dance. However, I can be a massive procrastinator and my favourite TV shows that I love to binge watch are Brooklyn Nine Nine, Modern Family and Suits! Yet, these summer holidays I've been working Monday to Friday almost every week as I'm shooting multiple shows at the moment. This requires me to usually leave the house at 6am and get home in the evening after a long day of work. Weekends are typically occupied by sport or weekend shoots, yet I try to stay social with friends and family as much as possible while juggling my school work.
