Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction BBL- Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Sixers
Hobart Hurricanes are sitting comfortably at the top of the table having won all of their first four matches and it will take some doing for the Sydney Sixers to get a result in their favour.
The match will be played at the Bellerive Oval which is the home ground of the Hobart Hurricanes. The team has won all the last five matches played at this venue. Sydney Sixers have beaten Hobart Hurricanes twice in the last four matches and they would expect their skillful bowling lineup to step up to the occasion.
The Hurricanes have named an unchanged squad and understandably so after having four matches. The openers D'Arcy Short and Matthew Wade as always will hold the key for the team. Both the openers are coming on the back of two half-centuries each and are expected to give the team another good start. They would be followed by Alex Doolan at number three.
In the bowling lineup, James Faulkner along with Jofra Archer and Riley Meredith have done an excellent job. While Faulkner has been the team's highest wicket-taker with seven wickets, both Archer and Meredith have bagged six each.
Sydney Sixers have found some form with back to back wins and are expected not to make any change in the playing eleven from the last time.
Skipper Moses Henriques finally found some form with a half-century against Brisbane Heat. Daniel Hughes and Jordan Silk would be the other leaders in the batting lineup.
With the ball, Tom Curran, Steve O'Keefe and Sean Abbott have played their role amazingly well. Steve O'Keefe has picked up 10 wickets while Curran is at the second spot with nine.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.
Hobart Hurricanes- D'Arcy Short, Matthew Wade (c)(wk), Alex Doolan, Ben McDermott, George Bailey, Simon Milenko, James Faulkner, Johan Botha, Jofra Archer, Clive Rose, Riley Meredith
Sydney Sixers- Justin Avendano, Joe Denly, Daniel Hughes, Moises Henriques (c), Jordan Silk, Josh Philippe (wk), Tom Curran, Sean Abbott, Steve O'Keefe, Ben Dwarshuis, Ben Manenti
