Hurricanes out to 11/5 for Big Bash triumph after Sixers defeat

Ben Darvill 23 Jan 2019

The Hobart Hurricanes were beaten comfortably by the Sydney Sixers on Wednesday which has helped to open up the Big Bash title race once again.

The Hobart Hurricanes may still have a sizeable lead at the top of the Big Bash league, but they were left to lick their wounds on Wednesday after they were well-beaten by the Sydney Sixers in a nine wicket loss. Matthew Wade (64) and D’Arcy Short (32) helped to get the league leasers off to a good start, but they struggled to maintain their momentum, and they could only notch 172/4 in their 20 overs, a target that the Sixers chased down in 17.1 overs for the loss of a single wicket. 

The defeat means the Hurricanes have tasted defeat for just the second time this year, and they hold a four point advantage at the top with a game in hand after a fine start. However, the side will be considering their position in the league after this loss, with it not uncommon to see a potentially title winning side suffer a defeat and then embark upon an awful run, curtailing their hopes of winning the competition.

This has seen the Hurricanes’ odds of winning the Big Bash drift to 11/5 with Paddy Power. The Melbourne Stars and the Sydney Sixers (both 4/1) are next in the betting, and their hopes of winning the tournament will be renewed after the Hurricanes’ loss, with the confidence of the Sixers in particular rising.
