Match Prediction Sydney Sixers v Hobart Hurricanes

Sydney Sixers will collide with Hobart Hurricanes in the eighth match of the Big Bash League 2021. The two teams clashed with each other quite recently. On that occasion, the defending champions Sydney Sixers came out on top.

Sydney Sixers have gotten off to a fantastic start in the competition. They began their title defence with a 152-run mauling of Melbourne Stars. It was followed by a 14-run win over Hobart Hurricanes recently. Moises Henriques had yet another stupendous outing with the bat. He scored a 48-ball 73 to put his team in the driving position and was awarded the Man of the Match as well. Sixers will now focus on getting the job done once again.

Hobart Hurricanes might’ve lost their opening fixture against Sydney Sixers but they can be proud of the effort they put in. Tom Rogers had a great day with the ball picking up three wickets. Peter Handscomb played a valuable knock of 47 runs. Hurricanes will be expecting more contribution from their middle order this time around.

As far as the head-to-head record is concerned, Hobart Hurricanes have come out on top on more occasions. Despite their phenomenal streak last season, Sydney Sixers lost both their matches against the Hurricanes. However, the defending champions pulled one back with a win in the first game.

Who will win today’s match?

Sydney Sixers have already demonstrated their quality and resolve in the opening two fixtures of the Big Bash League. The defending champions are in no mood to drop their guard and would like to complete the double over Hobart Hurricanes at the SCG. Sixers’ batting unit has been resounding so far.

Team News

Sean Abbott is away on Australia A duty while Ben Dwarshuis continues to be unavailable due to injury. In their absence, the efficient Ben Manenti is likely to get another game.

Hobart Hurricanes, too, will have to deal with a few absences. Harry Brook and Scott Boland are away on England Lions and Australia A duty respectively. Jordan Thompson has been asked to quarantine as he was in contact with a person who tested COVID positive while Ben McDermott is out injured. Jordan Cox and Tom Lammonby should continue in their absence.

Cricket Tips

The previous match against Hobart Hurricanes was a perfect demonstration of the resolve of Sydney Sixers and their winning mentality. They were in plenty of trouble after losing five wickets quickly but captain Moises Henriques steadied the ship and played a valuable knock. The bowlers also put in a disciplined shift to curtail the opposition run-chase. Sixers are the favourites to win here as well.

Hobart Hurricanes will be cursing themselves after losing a game where they held the advantage. Matthew Wade and D’Arcy Short failed to give them the opening that they’d have desired and the middle order ended up collapsing. However, Hurricanes can take pride in the way they bowled against Sydney Sixers, especially in the initial stages of the game.

Game changers for Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Sixers

Josh Phillippe and Moises Henriques have been nothing short of incredible for the Sixers. Tom Curran has also been a more than useful all-rounder. Tom Rogers put in a fine shift with the ball in the previous game against Sydney Sixers and also picked up three wickets. He’ll be hell bent on succeeding once again.

Who will be the best match bowler?

Tom Curran has been phenomenal for Sydney Sixers in the opening two matches. He has picked up four wickets in the last two games and has also bowled at a healthy economy rate. Moreover, Curran played a valuable knock of 27 runs towards the end of the innings in the last match against Hobart Hurricanes.
