Top of the Table clash for WBBL Hurricanes

12 January 2017

The WBBL Hobart Hurricanes will today head to Sydney ahead of a top of the table clash with the Sydney Sixers on Friday.

The Hurricanes come off an eight wicket win against the Brisbane Heat at home and will be looking to carry their momentum into tomorrow’s match.

The last time the two teams faced each other, it was the Sixers who walked away winners by 7 wickets.

With just four games remaining and the table as tight as it is, a win against the current ladder leaders will be a step in the right direction to help secure the girls a spot in the final four.

Head coach Julia Price said the team are really looking forward to playing the Sixers on Friday and said beating the Sixers would be a real confidence boost for the Hurricanes leading into the finals race.

"We have had quite a few players standing up with both bat and ball which is pleasing to spread the load around," Price said.

"Beating the Sixers would mean we have beaten every team in the competition at least once over the past two seasons which would put us in good stead leading into finals."

There is just the one change to the side from the previous round, with Celeste Raack coming in for Erin Fazackerley.

The Hobart Hurricanes take on the Sydney Sixers on Friday 13th January at North Sydney Oval at 2:30pm. The match will be live streamed via Facebook and cricket.com.
