There’s all to play for in the Big Bash League for these two sides as Hobart Hurricanes know victory over Sydney Sixers will leave them in outright third place and a chance in the play-offs.
That win will not be easy to come by though as once again the Sixers have been brilliant in this Twenty20 competition and are currently ahead of Hobart.
Despite losing their last tie in a Super Over to Perth Scorchers, the hosts are in good form and retain Australian Test players Nathan Lyon and Steve Smith – who were not selected for the national one-day side.
Smith had a superb recent Ashes series and the all-rounder will resume the captaincy role with Sydney, as the star is groomed to take over from Michael Clarke as skipper for the Baggy Greens.
As for the away side, a lacklustre start was greatly helped by a convincing triumph over Sixers’ city rivals Sydney Thunder in their last tie.
Ben Dunk hit an impressive 96 off just 54 balls, whilst bowler Ben Laughlin finished with figures of 3-8 as Hobart put themselves back in play-off contention.
The two sides have met on three occasions previously, with the Hurricanes having the better of those games and winning twice.
