Adelaide Strikers are the defending Big Bash League champions.

The defending champions Adelaide Strikers are two-time semi-finalist (2014-15 & 2015-16) & one-time finalist (2017-18). They won the tournament in 2017-18. Apart from these three editions, they had quite a lacklustre run in the BBL finishing fifth once, sixth twice & seventh once in the League Stages.

In the 2018-19 edition, they will be looking forward to becoming the second team to win back to back BBL trophies. The first team to do it was Perth Scorchers when they won two consecutive tournaments in 2013-14 & 2015. They have finished twice in the first place in the League Stages (2014-15 & 2015-16).

Only Perth Scorchers have more first-place finishes in the league stages - 3.
