Sydney Sixers will take on Hobart Hurricanes in the league game of the Big Bash League 2022-23. The Sixers have lost both of their games in the tournament so far, and they would want to get back in form at their home venue. Sydney Sixers have played well on the SCG track in the past.
Sydney Sixers have been one of the most consistent teams in the history of the BBL, and this is their first home match of the tournament. James Vince, Josh Phillipe and Jordan Silk are the side’s best batters, and they would want to improve their record. The bowlers of the side have done comparatively well.
Hobart Hurricanes finally won their last match, and they would want to make momentum by winning this game. The team’s batting has some strong names like D’arcy Short, Ben McDermott, Matthew Wade, Tim David, etc, whereas the bowling of the side looks excellent as well.
Sydney Cricket Ground is one of the best batting tracks in Australia, and it is one of the driest tracks as well. The pitch here has been excellent for batting in the past as well. There is an even bounce on the track, and the batters can play their shots easily by trusting the bounce of the wicket.
A total of 7 matches were played here in the recent ICC T20 World Cup 2022, where five of them were won by the teams batting first. The average 1st innings score here was 175 runs, which proves that it has been a great track for batting. It is to note that the pitch gets slower in the 2nd innings, where spinners take advantage of the conditions.
The side boundaries of this ground are really small, and the outfield is excellent as well, which is a great thing for the batters. It is certain that the spinners will play a big part in this match as well. Both captains may opt to bat first upon winning the toss.
