I the Big Bash League 2019-20, We have Hobart Hurricanes squaring off against Sydney Thunder at Bellerive Oval, Hobart. This match will be taking place on January 24, 2020, at 12:40 PM IST.
With the Big Bash League playoffs on the cards very soon, we have all the teams in the league vying for the top 5 spots. And right now the Hobart Hurricanes don’t look quite comfortable. The Hurricanes are at the 2nd last position in the points table with 9 points. They have played 12 matches so far but managed to win only four. Now the Hobart Hurricanes will have to defeat a better performed Sydney Thunder and also have a series of other outcomes from other matches, to be able to qualify for the playoffs. Simply put, it looks like an almost impossible task for the Hobart Hurricanes at this stage. Also in their previous match against Sydney Thunder, this season the Hobart Hurricanes lost by 4 wickets and this doesn’t help the hosts either. But it is important to note that the Hobart Hurricanes won their last game against Melbourne Renegades and this will put them in a good state of mind for the upcoming game.
Sydney Thunder is currently sitting 5th in the points table and the team is desperate for a win to secure their spot into the playoffs. They have 11 points and have played 12 matches so far, of which they have won 5 games. However, that doesn’t mean that Sydney Thunder is in spectacular form. In fact in their last match Perth Scorchers they were unable to defend 153 runs. Sydney Thunder is in desperate need to revamp its batting order.
