The Hobart Hurricanes Academy squad has been finalised, with a 13-man squad traveling to Sydney to participate in a quadrangular series with the Sydney Sixers Academy, Sydney Thunder Academy and Lahore Qalanders.
The squad contains four contracted Hobart Hurricanes players, as well as a further six Tasmanian-contracted players.
Academy coach Darren McNees said it was a great opportunity for current Hurricanes players to fine tune their skills in preparation for the BBL|07 whilst providing a great opportunity for some younger players to expand their game against strong opposition.
“These games are a good chance for our players to get match exposure against quality players from both Sydney teams and Lahore as well,” he said.
“We’re looking forward to getting up to Sydney and hopefully playing some high-quality cricket.”
The Hurricanes’ campaign begins against the Lahore Qalanders on Wednesday at Blacktown.
