Sydney Sixers v Hobart Hurricanes – Team News

  • Josh Philippe – The talented prospect has enjoyed another impressive BBL so far. He has 441 runs to his name in just 12 matches so far.
  • James Vince – Vince has done really well alongside Philippe and the Englishman will be keen to build on the 52 and 38 he has managed in his last matches.
  • Ben Dwarshuris – A lot rests on the left-arm bowler for Sydney. He is vital to their chances and heads into this after taking three wickets against the Thunder. Mitchell Starc could return to offer him some valuable support.
  • Ben McDermott – The wicketkeeper-batsman has 397 runs in 10 games for Hobart and has been their star performer with the bat this BBL. He will have to fire again if the Hurricanes are to come out on top.
  • Nathan Ellis –  The right-arm fast-medium bowler heads into this on the back of his four-wicket haul against the Scorchers. He is also Hobart’s leading wicket-taker this tournament.

Sydney Sixers v Hobart Hurricanes – Betting Tips and Prediction

The Sixers were on the end of an Alex Hales masterclass when defeat by Thunder in their previous outing.

Despite having a huge total to chase, they acquitted themselves well before eventually falling short.

Backing them to bounce back to winning ways looks like the right choice in the outright betting market. They will want to make sure they bag a top-two place.

Due to that loss against their rivals, their price to take the victory here looks tempting. They are available as high as 1.8 with bet365.

Back Vince to Outscore Philippe Again

James Vince has been solid at the top of the order alongside Josh Philippe.

Backing Vince to outscore him in this contest could be an interesting play. He managed it in the previous game and there has been a lot to like about his recent starts of 38 and 52 following a lean spell.

He could be starting to find his best form as the tournament enters a crucial phase.

Vince can be backed at 2.1 with 22Bet to get more runs than Philippe here.

Dwarshuris for Top Bowler

Ben Dwarshuris took three more wickets against Sydney Thunder to establish himself as the Sixers’ main threat with the ball this BBL.

His record this tournament has seen his wickets come in a flurry. When he gets wickets he tends to follow that up in the next outing with confidence high.

Backing him to be Sydney’s top bowler here looks a great bet at 3.74 with 22Bet.
