Match preview: Sixers v Hurricanes

02 November 2021

The Hobart Hurricanes will play their first mainland match of the Weber WBBL|07 tomorrow, when they take on the Sydney Sixers at the WACA Ground in Perth.

It will be the second time both teams have faced each other this year, with the Sixers snatching a five-wicket win in the teams’ first encounter at Blundstone Arena on the tournament’s opening weekend.

On that occasion it was two Indian players who starred, with Shafali Verma top-scoring in a player-of-the-match performance for the Sixers, notching up 57 runs off just 50 balls.  Meanwhile for the Hurricanes, it was Richa Ghosh who top-scored, getting oh-so-close to her first WBBL half century, with a run-a-ball 46.

The Hurricanes have named a 14-player squad for their match in Perth tomorrow:

Maddison Brooks
Nicola Carey
Mignon du Preez
Angelina Genford
Richa Ghosh
Ruth Johnston
Sasha Moloney
Rachel Priest (c)
Chloe Rafferty
Amy Smith
Naomi Stalenberg
Molly Strano
Belinda Vakarewa
Tayla Vlaeminck

If selected in the final XI, Maddi Brooks and Angelina Genford will make their Hurricanes debuts.

The first ball will be bowled at 1.25pm AEDT, with the match to be broadcast on Fox Cricket and ABC Sport.  The game will also be available to be viewed via livestream on Kayo Sports and
