The Sydney Sixers play host to the table-topping Hobart Hurricanes in the 40th game of the Big Bash League. This match will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground and will begin at 7:15pm (AEDT). Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 7:15pm (AEDT).

The Hurricanes are coming into this game on the back of a win that should put every other team on alert. That’s if the seven previous wins from eight games hadn’t done it already.

Playing against the defending champions, the Adelaide Strikers, they restricted them to 5/154 from 20 overs. Now with the likes of Rashid Khan and Billy Stanlake in the Adelaide bowling, one would have thought it was at least a fighting score until they met the indestructible force of the Hurricanes openers.

Both Matthew Wade and D’Arcy Short are in the form of their lives, and both showed why.

Wade went hammer and tongs, Short supported him nicely and what was most impressive to watch was the manner in which they blunted someone like Rashid Khan.

Rashid bowled a couple of overs in the powerplay itself, opening the bowling too and proved to be ineffective against the Hurricanes duo. And later, when he came on to bowl his final over, he was thrashed around the park in what was a rare show of aggression against him.

The target was chased down in the 17th over with no wickets lost.

The Sixers have had a decent start too, five wins from 10 matches for their third spot, but they are two aspects to that.

One was their showing in the previous game against the Brisbane Heat which should hold them in a very good stead – James Vince bolstered their batting by smashing 75 and guiding them to 177 before Sean Abbott and Tom Curran’s three-for sent the Heat packing to 98 all out in a very convincing victory.


The other thing to watch out is their previous game against the Hurricanes in this season. As has been the case with almost every other team, it ended in a defeat for the Sixers thanks to a Short 64.

First Johan Botha picked up three wickets and then Short chipped in with a half-century to complete a five-wicket win in the final over. That wasn’t, however, as straightforward as it came, with the Hurricanes needing 17 to win from the final two overs.

Can the Sixers take some confidence from that defeat too? Or will the Hurricanes run away to another victory?
