The Hurricanes boast one of the best all-round squads in the BBL, combining quality internationals with some of Austrlia’s best short-form specialists, namely D’Arcy Short. If their top order gets going, they are every chance of posting an unmatchable score every time they play.
The Sixers could hardly have been more impressive in their campaign opener against the Perth Scorchers, but the Hurricanes shape as a completely different challenge, as does playing away from the SCG.
Josh Philippe is clearly a star and I’m confident that he can produce a similar knock to that which heralded 81 on Wednesday night.
Tip: Hobart Hurricanes $1.84
