Hobart Hurricanes are going to be led by Matthew Wade in this season. He led the side admirably last year when Hurricanes finished the group stage at the number one spot.
Hobart Hurricanes have a unique mixture of youthful exuberance and experience. They have the list of match-winners in their lineup. The presence of David Miller and James Faulkner provide them with experience, whereas they have one of the best openers in limited overs international of Australia in D’Arcy Short.

- George Bailey
- Matthew Wade

- James Faulkner
- Scott Boland
- Clive Rose

Sydney Sixers have managed to get Steve Smith in the squad. Smith will be available in the later stage of the tournament.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played against Perth Scorchers in the first cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Sydney Sixers’ playing XI:
- Moises Henriques
- James Vince

Expert Prediction: HH vs SS
The ninth season of Big Bash League is here. The tournament will be played over a period of 42 days and a total number of five teams will have the chance to qualify for the finals, instead of the usual four teams.
As per the new format, the teams finishing in the top two will be rewarded for their consistency, unlike in previous seasons. While the winner of the ‘qualifier’ played between the top two teams will reach the final straightaway, the loser will play the ‘challenger’ against the winner of the ‘knockout’ which is going to be played between the sides that finished third and winner of the ‘eliminator’.
The Eliminator is a newly introduced knockout feature which will be played between the teams finishing at number fourth and fifth on the points table. Hence, out of the eight teams, five teams will have a chance to play the final and win the tournament.
Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Sixers are going to take on each other in the fourth cricket game of the Big Bash League. In the last five encounters between the two sides, Hobart have been the winner on three occasions while Sixers have managed to win two cricket games.
Our prediction is of a winning start for Hobart Hurricanes. Hurricanes seem to have more depth in their squad while Sixers seem to have less firepower compared to them.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
