Sydney Sixers vs Hobart Hurricanes Big Bash Today Match Prediction In the 8th Match of the Big Bash League 2021-22, the Hobart Hurricanes will go for revenge against the reigning champions Sydney Sixers. On Saturday, the match will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The two teams faced off just a few days ago, with the Sixers winning by 14 runs in a low-scoring affair.

The Hurricanes would have been devastated if they hadn’t been able to chase down 145 at Launceston’s Aurora Stadium. They do, however, now have an opportunity to make amends. Meanwhile, the Sixers have gotten off to a great start with two convincing victories. The Matthew Wade-led team, on the other hand, got off to a bad start. As a result, the three-time winners will undoubtedly enter the game as favorites.

Key Player

Tom Curran                                                       

In terms of bowling, Tom Curran is expected to be at the top of the rankings. The right-arm pacer had a strong showing in his team’s last two games. In the previous game, he had a match-winning three-wicket haul against the Hurricanes. Curran, in particular, bowls a lot in the final overs, which provides him more opportunities to get wickets.

Moises Henriques

In his first two games this season, the Sydney Sixers captain has led from the front and scored match-winning runs. Henriques hit 76 runs against the Melbourne Stars, but only 73 against the Hurricanes. As a result, there’s no reason why the dasher can’t repeat his feats of valor.

Team News

  • Sydney Sixers were forced to work much harder against Hobart Hurricanes after inflicting a record-breaking defeat on Melbourne Stars in their first game of the BBL 2021-22, but they still won.
  • Somerset’s Tom Lammonby made his BBL debut on Wednesday, barely a day after signing with the Hurricanes. The hitters for the Hurricanes had plenty of starts in Launceston, and they’ll be hoping to step up and contribute more in Sydney.

Sydney Sixers vs Hobart Hurricanes Match Tips

The Sydney Sixers thrashed the Melbourne Stars by 152 runs the last time they played at home. While the Hobart Hurricanes should put up a far better fight than the Sixers, they look to be lacking in both experience and batting depth, making this a difficult match for them to win. The visitors have a chance if Matthew Wade or Tim David fire with the bat, given how quickly they can rack up boundaries when on the form. However, with a better all-around squad and home advantage, another Sixers victory appears to be in the cards.
