Hobart Hurricanes proved their unchallenged domination over this year's Big Bash League by beating defending champions Adelaide Strikers by 10 wickets in the last match.

With the win against Brisbane Heat, Sydney Sixers are also coming with momentum on their side and are at the second spot in the points table.

The Sixers brought in Lloyd Pope in place of Ben Manenti in the last game. Jordan Silk and Daniel Hughes have been competing against each other to become the highest run-scorer for the team. After the recent 26-ball 41, Silk became the team's top scorer again with 260 runs from 10 innings. Hughes is just behind him with 237 runs. Captain Moses Henriques and James Vince have also played their part.

Tom Curran has been exceptional with his all-round abilities and claimed figures of 3-16 against Brisbane Heat in the last match. He now has 14 wickets and is just behind Steve O'Keefe who has 16.

Hobart Hurricanes have been excelling majorly due to their opening combination of D'Arcy Short and Matthew Wade, both of whom are now gunning for an ODI spot. While Short is at the top of the batting charts with 441 runs, Wade is not far behind and is at the second spot with 323 runs.

The team has George Bailey in the middle order whose services were not utilised in the last match. James Faulkner has also played a couple of match-winning knocks and would lead the bowling attack with Jofra Archer and Riley Meredith.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.
