Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Sixers, Big Bash League Fantasy Cricket Tips: The fourth match of the Big Bash League will take place between Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Sixers at the Traeger Park stadium in Alice Springs.
The match starts at 9:15 AM IST (13:15 Local Time). The live streaming of the match will be available on the Sony Liv App.
The ninth season of the Big Bash League starts on the 17th December and Hobart Hurricanes play their first game on the 20th against the Sydney Sixers who will be playing their second game. Both the team made the semi-finals last year but couldn’t make it into the finals. With a new season coming up, both the teams would like to go the distance this year.
Hobart Hurricanes have bought in the Afghan leg-spinner Qais Ahmed and South African David Miller as their two overseas players whereas Sydney Sixers have the two English men James Vince and Tom Curran in their mix.
Both the teams would want to start the tournament on a winning note so it would be a contest worth watching.
The temperatures would be in the high 30s and early 40s with no chance of rain on the 20th of December.
Only one T20 match has been played at this venue between the Adelaide Strikers and Perth Scorchers in 2018. The Strikers were bowled out for 112 in that game and the Scorchers chased it down pretty easily in 18.2 overs.
