Stage set for 'Canes

20 January 2017

A sell-out crowd, a must win match and the season comes down to this.

The Hobart Hurricanes have named their squad for the final home match of BBL06 which will be played in front of another sold out crowd at Blundstone Arena.

The 'Canes face the Perth Scorchers in a do or die match at home tomorrow afternoon with a win keeping their chances of a finals berth well and truly alive.

There's been just one change to the 13-man squad with Clive Rose coming back in at the expense of Sam Rainbird.

With three matches to go, 6 teams are all battling it out for the top 4 in an extremely close competition.

Whilst a couple of results also have to go the Hurricanes way, Hurricanes spinner Cameron Boyce said the team's focus is purely on doing all they can to defeat the Scorchers in their final appearance at home for BBL06.

"We try to just worry about ourselves and not focus too much on the other results, though they (other results) are going to come into play. 

"We’ve been in this position the past couple of years and obviously we have to win on Saturday, so we’ll just see where we are after that. 

“I think we’ve seen teams in the past come from our position and they tend to be really dangerous in the last few games of the tournament. We only know that if we hit momentum at the right time going into the finals, we’re a real shot."

The match tomorrow is a double header with the WBBL Hurricanes playing the Melbourne Stars at 11:45am before the BBL match hits off at 4.20pm.

Both matches will be Live on Channel 10 / WIN TV.
