Big Bash League Fantasy Cricket Tips for Hobart Hurricanes vs Perth Scorchers Game: Both the teams have had a mixed bag until now as they have won three games each. Hurricanes are at the 7th position whereas the Scorchers are at the 6th position in the points table.
The Hurricanes will miss the services of their consistent opener D’Arcy Short as he will travel to India but Matthew Wade will be back after the test series against New Zealand. On the other hand, Scorchers are pretty much dependent on the openers and the bowlers who are doing a fine job.
Both the teams need some points to climb up the ladder and hence this game will be important for both of them. It will be a great contest when these two teams take on each other.
The temperatures would be in the low 20s and mid-20s with partly cloudy weather on the 13th of January.
