Last years finalists are off to a poor start. They have a fair number of players on national duty, and that will be an issue for them as they look to fight for survival atleast until those players get back. They go up against Hobart Hurricanes who have blown hot and cold in their two games.
Date: December 22nd 2022
Time: 1:45 PM IST
Venue: Sydney Cricket Ground
The Weather at Sydney is pretty good for the upcoming game.
The Sydney track is flat and should be better for the side chasing.

With Matthew Wade nearing retirement, Australia’s hunt for a wicket-keeper batter is likely to take more substance. Josh Phillipe is an exciting young talent, and has done well in the Big Bash League over the past few seasons.
Matthew Wade is in a similar position as Aaron Finch. His T20I future is uncertain but the ongoing season will allow him to understand if he has it in him to continue for a few more years or if his time is up.
Sydney are struggling with their line-up while Hurricanes come in as favorites given the talent on offer.
