Sydney Sixers will take on Hobart Hurricanes in the opening match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played on the Bellerive Oval, Hobart and is scheduled to begin at 7:15 PM local time.

New Season, same excitement, Big Bash League is back for it's 10th edition and what a way to start it with two of the most fancied teams looking to get off to a winning start.

 Hobart Hurricanes has been one of the most consistent teams of the competition. They were knocked out in the eliminator in the previous edition and would look to better their performance this time around.

Players like  James Faulkner, Peter Handscomb, D Arcy Short, Jake Doran, make them a batting powerhouse.  The batting is well supported by Scott Boland, David Moody and Riley Meredith in the bowling department..

Defending champions Sydney Sixers has one of the most balanced squads on paper. The batting is backed by destructive players like James Vince, Josh Phillippe, Jordan Silk and Moises Henriques. 

Carlos Brathwaite and Jason Holder can be deadly on their day. Ben Dwarshius, Sean Abbott and Steve O’Keefe make a quality bowling line up. Overall, both teams are on par with each other but Hobart Hurricanes have a slightly more stable batting line up than Sydney Sixers and will go in as marginal favourites.

HBH vs SYS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Josh Philippe and Peter Handscomb at 9.5 and 9.0 are decent selections. Phillipe didn't play much in the IPL but looked good in the limited opportunities he got. He had brilliant warm up game against Hobart Hurricanes and is a great pick. Peter Handscomb at 9.0 is another quality batsmen you can opt for.

  • Batsmen

    James Vince, Daniel Hughes at 9.5 and 8.5 respectively are great picks.  James Vince is one of the most dangerous batsmen in this format of the game and looked in good touch in the warm up game. Daniel Hughes smashed a brilliant 60 off 19 making a good case for himself. Jack Edwards also had a good warm up, he can be backed at 8.0. Colin Ingram is a very experienced candidate and is available for selection at 9.0

  • All rounder

    Jason Holder at 9.0 is a terrific selection from this section. He, with his all round skills will provide balance to your team. Don't miss out of D Arcy Short who's been one of the most consistent performer of BBL. He's available at 10.5

  • Bowlers

    Ryan Meredith at 8.5, Lloyd Pope and Scott Boland at 8.5 will complete a strong team. All the three bowlers have done well in the previous editions and will be looking to live up to their expectations. Llyod Pope and Scot Boland were terrific in the warm up game as well.
