Immersed in an edge of the seat thriller in their league opener, the 8 wicket win Sydney Sixers pulled off in their first match of the Big Bash League saw them open their journey in the 2019-29 instalment of the league in ideal manner. The win was a pivotal one for the side not only owing to the fact that they got their campaign underway with a win to their name but the composure the side showed to hang on in perilous circumstances.
In what was a compelling and maverick bowling display, the side showed reliance, will, and fortitude to keep picking up wickets at regular intervals and maul their opponents for just 131, a score they had no qualms in chasing. In what was an equally comprehensive batting performance, the side cantered their way to a win with five overs to spare as they made light work of their opponent’s bowling unit.
And the side will be looking to show the same determination and resistance infront Hobart Hurricanes today, a side packed with guile filled names. Hobart Hurricanes who are playing their first match of the league will have studied the Sixers batting display the last time around, a performance which they’ll be looking to capitalise on to catapult their opponents and get their campaign off with a win to their name.
