Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Sixers – Match Preview

Sydney showed all their battling qualities to lift the trophy in 2019-20. It was their second tournament win since the opening event back in 2011-12.

They have kept the backbone of last year’s title-winning team together and are among the favourites once more.

Hobart came fourth in the group stages last time around but soon exited against Sydney Thunder. They have bolstered their batting ahead of this 10th edition.

Where: Bellerive Oval, Hobart

When: Thursday, 10 December 2020

Start time: 13:45 IST (08:15 GMT)

Pitch conditions: The Bellerive wicket has historically helped bowlers by providing early movement. However, the pitch doesn’t usually take long to settle and become good for batting.

Weather conditions: There is a small chance of showers, but dry and overcast conditions are most likely. Cooler temperatures of around 14 degrees are expected.

Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Sixers – Team News

Hobart will be without T20 star Dawid Malan until he completes his isolation following England’s trip to South Africa.

Peter Handscomb and Colin Ingram have beefed up the Hurricane batting roster even further this year.

Sydney have re-signed Mitchell Starc and brought in Dan Christian to strengthen the majority of the squad that won last year’s tournament.

Sandeep Lamichhane is absent after contracting coronavirus. His absence will be covered by South African Johan Botha, who has come out of retirement to feature.

They don’t have Tom Curran, though, after the England bowler chose to miss BBL 10 to spend time with his family.

Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Sixers – Betting Tips and Prediction

This is a really interesting tussle to kick-start BBL 2020-21.

This could be the time to take on last year’s champions. They are away from home and the loss of Tom Curran certainly leaves them a little light in the bowling department.

Extra responsibility will now fall on Ben Dwarshuis and Hobart will be buoyed by their decent head-to-head record against the Sixers.

Sydney batsman Josh Philippe could be set for another fine tournament but the Hurricanes have plenty firepower of their own in D’Arcy Short, Peter Handscomb and Colin Ingram in particular.

Hobart won this fixture last season and their price looks appealing at 2.1 with LeoVegas.

Philippe to Build on Last Season

Batting prospect Josh Philippe enjoyed a brilliant Big Bash campaign last year.

He smashed 487 runs in 16 matches to help the Sixers to the title. He then followed that up with some positive showings as opener for RCB in the Indian Premier League.

The 23-year-old will only have learned from those experiences and surely has plenty more to come this time around.

It would be no surprise to see him get off to a good start and his price of 4.33 with bet365 to be Sydney’s top batsman looks to be value.

Back Boland with the Ball

Scott Boland was Hobart’s top bowler in BBL09 and can be among the wickets in home conditions here.

The right-arm fast-medium pacer took 15 wickets in 10 matches last term. He also heads into the BBL after showing good form for Victoria in the Sheffield Shield.

He can be backed at 4.32 with 22Bet to be Hobart’s top wicket-taker in the match.
