Hurricanes to make landfall in Wollongong

31 August 2017

The Hobart Hurricanes will travel to Wollongong to take on the Sydney Sixers in a warm up match on December 12 ahead of their respective BBL|07 campaigns.

The BBL practice match will be the second fixture in a Big Bash double header at North Dalton Park, with the Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers facing off in a WBBL|03 fixture before the BBL teams take to the field.

Hurricanes coach Gary Kirsten said playing the Sixers, who reached the final of last season’s competition, would form a vital part of his side’s preparation for BBL|07.

“This game in Wollongong will be a good chance to see where we are at before the competition proper gets underway,” he said.

“The Sixers are a quality side, so playing against them as part of our preparations is a great opportunity and one we will look to take full advantage of.”

The match will commence at 4.30pm, with entry to the ground free of charge.
