SIX vs HUR Match Preview, BBL 2020:
After winning the inaugural Big Bash League in 2011/12, Sydney Sixers collected their second title last time around as they proved to be too good for Melbourne Stars within the final and that they will believe that they’ll defend their crown in BBL 10. The Sixers have added Windies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite to their ranks in what’s an attention-grabbing addition while his international teammate Jason Holder will link-up with the squad.
To counter that, they’re going to be without Australian international pair Steve Smith and Josh Hazlewood who are opting to take a seat out because of an important workload and in a very further blow on the eve of the tournament, England paceman Tom Curran has also withdrawn from the squad. Three consecutive top-four finishes have didn’t yield success and that they will now be without England star Jofra Archer in addition as Qais Ahmad which has severely hit Adam Griffith’s bowling options.
If the Hurricanes are to achieve success in BBL 10, it’s clear that it’ll be right down to their batsmen with big hitters Matthew Wade and D’Arcy Short joined by the World’s beloved ranked T20 batsman Dawid Malan but his participation is expected to be hindered by international duty.
