Sydney Sixers vs Hobart Hurricanes Predictions 


The Hobart Hurricanes will consider this a must-win match if they are to reach the playoffs. They are also a bit of a bogey team for the Sixers, who are already assured of their place in the playoffs. An upset is certainly on the cards in this one.

  • Sydney Sixers’ Josh Philippe is the 2nd leading run scorer in the Big Bash this season.
  • Sydney Sixers’ Josh Philippe has scored 50+ runs in 2 of his last 3 matches.
  • Hobart Hurricanes have won 3 of their last 4 matches against the Sydney Sixers.
  • Hobart Hurricanes’ D’Arcy Short scored 43 runs in his last match.

Head to Head


The Hobart Hurricanes have won three of their last four matches against the Sydney Sixers. They last met earlier this season when the Hurricanes won by 16 runs.

Sydney Sixers Form


The Sydney Sixers are four points clear at the top of the Big Bash table with two matches left to play. They are not secure of that top spot just yet with at least one win from their final two matches required.

Last time out the Sydney Sixers suffered a 46-run defeat to the Sydney Thunder in Adelaide. On a superb batting wicket, the Thunder batted first and scored a mammoth 232 runs in their 20 overs.

The Sydney Sixers fought hard but the record run chase was never really on. Moises Henriques smashed 56 and Jordan Silk 42 runs as the Sixers reached 186 in their 20 overs.

Sydney Sixers Injuries & Team News


Heading towards the playoffs the Sixers are likely to stop experimenting. The return of Moises Henriques forced the Sixers coaching staff to go with James Vince as an opening partner to Josh Philippe. That combination is likely to continue.

Hobart Hurricanes Form


The Hobart Hurricanes desperately need a result here. They are currently placed sixth on the table, although they could be seventh depending on other results by the time this match starts.

The Hurricanes are however just one point behind the Adelaide Strikers in the final playoff spot.

In their last match the Hobart Hurricanes went down by 22 runs to the in-form Perth Scorchers in Melbourne. The Scorchers scored 179 runs in their allotted overs.

D’Arcy Short eventually found some form, scoring 43 runs while Peter Handscomb scored 30. There were no other real contributions which cost the Hurricanes in this fixture.

Going into the crucial part of the season they will need players like Dawid Malan to score big and show some of their vast experience.

The Hurricanes batting lineup is very settled although Ben McDermott has been moved around a lot this season. He has however scored runs in most positions.

Matthew Wade failed to score runs in his first match after returning from international duty but he will open once again. McDermott, Dawid Malan and Peter Handscomb make for a frightening middle order.
