SIX vs HUR Dream11 Prediction: Sydney Sixers would take on a frailing Hobart Hurricanes in an attempt to settle the scores for the past defeat in the ongoing edition of Big Bash League.
The previous faceoff witnessed the Hurricanes thrash the Sixers by a margin of 25-runs whilst defending 130, courtesy spinner Qais Ahmed (4/19) for his googlies and leg-breaks. However, things have turned around this time, as there are no Riley Meredith or DArcy Short to assist the tourists. T
Moreover, the Sydney Sixers have been on a rampage in the last six matches, with wins on five occasions. In the points table, the Moises Henriques-captained side is seated at the second spot with 6 wins in 3 matches and 12 points in their kitty, and although a victory in the coming game won’t put them atop, it would certainly help in cementing their position in the race to knockouts.
Meanwhile, Hobart Hurricanes are occupying the seventh spot in the points tally, with 3 wins and 6 losses in 9 matches competed so far and would require wins in the remaining five matches in order to qualify for the eliminators.
Date: January 16, Thursday.
Time: 1:40 PM IST.

Heavy chances of rains are being foretold at SCG, especially in the second half of the contest which could put a halt to the gameplay. The toss winning team should look to bowl first, considering the DLS method would come into play, offering some aid to the batters in case the game resumes.
