Big Bash League 2020-21 Match 52
Sydney Sixers vs. Hobart HurricanesMatch Prediction – Sun, 24th January
THE OPENING SHOW
Sixers With Better Chances:
The Sixers lost to their cross-town rivals last time out and, with the Scorchers’ on an impressive run, are now under a bit of heaviness to hold onto top place.
Whether they top the table or not, this has been a splendid campaign for a team who, despite being the preserving champions, were not included in the top two odds at the beginning.
They have shown great character despite all injuries and absenteeism. So it’s a testament to a sturdy team and concrete strategies. Sean Abbott was unfortunate to miss out last game but will undoubtedly play after sitting on the bench for the Country’s Test series against India. He’ll be keen to go big.
Moises Henriques looked collected and confident rather than unaccustomed and shabby last time out knocking a half-century, but fascinatingly, it’s been definite that Dan Hughes moves on as skipper.
Possible playing XI: Josh Phillipe, James Vince, Carlos Brathwaite, Moises Henriques, Jordan Silk, Ben Dwarshius, Sean Abbott, Daniel Christian, Daniel Christian, Steve O’Keefe, Jackson Bird.
Hurricanes and their Buffet:
After a terrible run, hurricanes are struggling for their spot that has led to four defeats out of the last five games. At a period, they looked tough, but the recent games have put them behind. They have barely done well in both departments.
They’re in a strange place where they have plenty of openers to choose from and need to ensure they set the right combination. All of D’Arcy Short, Dawid Malan, Matthew Wade, and Ben McDermott would desire open batting.
In the last game, Wade and Short up top, McDermott followed by Malan, but that reckons the Englishman appears a bit waste of resource at number four. However, considering McDermott is their top scorer, he should be given more time to bide in the middle to exploit each opportunity.
Possible playing XI: D’arcy Short, Will Jacks, Nathan Ellis, Peter Handscomb, Tim David, Riley Meredith, Matthew Wade, Ben McDermott, Dawid Malan, Sandeep Lamichhane, Scott Boland.
The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
In the 52nd game of the 2020-21 Big Bash League 2020-21 (BBL), Sydney Sixers will take on Hobart Hurricanes at the MCG in Melbourne on 24th January Sunday.
This one’s at the MCG, and the last three totals for the side’s batting first were 183, 172, and 179. All three of those sides batting first went on to win the game won. So that will be the way to go if they win the bat flip. The pitch looked pretty decent all through the recent games. So it might be scoreboard weight rather than the wicket slowing down as the main barrier for the chasing side.
Best Pick Sixers:
Sydney Sixers is at 1.8, and there’s no hesitation they’re the better-composed franchise. But that Top 4 we stated for the Hurricanes should be appreciated, and it only takes a decent 70 or 75 score from one of them to set the path, or chase, a good score.
So we will reckon to give this one a miss on the choices, also for the reason that we summon the Hurricanes are leading the head to head clash, comprising a 16-run win previously in the tournament.
The Hurricanes are no gamble as we intensely favor the Sixers’ bowling lineup and consider the men in Magenta have a deeper batting squad.
The top order of either team is going to be essential for a win. Both the sides have a strong top four, counting for a tough battle. The sportsbook will dangle a carrot in the form of Josh Philippe. And those odds are not wrong to be turned down.
Such are the odds for the other top-order batters of either team. Check and choose carefully, as the MCG pitch is waiting to witness rampant scoring.
