SYD vs HBH Match Prediction - Dec 22, 2022

It has been a rough start to BBL 12 for the Sydney SIxers. They have played two and lost both of those matches so far. The Hobart Hurricanes have done a bit better by winning one out of their two matches but they have also been far from convincing. Both these teams are traditionally among the stronger ones in Big Bash cricket and need to step things up if they are to make an impact this season. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Sydney Sixers vs Hobart Hurricanes BBL 2022-23. The match will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney on the 22nd of December 2022. 

SYD vs HBH Team Previews

Sydney Sixers

Sydney Sixers have found batting quite hard in the matches that they have played so far. James Vince, their overseas gun batter, has failed and Aussie stalwarts like Josh Philippe, Moises Henriques, and Dan Christian have been disappointing as well. 

Jordon Silk and Hayden Kerr are the only two batters that have shown some fight so far. 

The talent of the players that we have mentioned is undeniable and a shift back to their home base may help them a bit. We think Vince and Philippe are both due for a big score and that is something you may want to bet on. 

Jackson Bird and Sean Abbott are the two experienced bowlers in the lineup while Naveen ul Haq and Izharulhaq Naveed are the overseas bowlers that have impressed in the matches that they have played. The Sixers are available at a good price right now and we think they could be an excellent option to consider in this contest.

Hobart Hurricanes

An improved batting performance from the Hobart Hurricanes helped them pull off a tight win against the Perth Scorchers in their previous match. Matthew Wade, Tim David, Shadab Khan, and Darcy Short all made a decent contribution. 

In fact, we did not see anything from Jimmy Neesham, Asif Ali, and Ben McDermott in the previous match showing just how much batting talent there is in the lineup. 

The Hurricanes have the kind of power and depth that allows them to play without any fear. Expect more innings where a number of their players score at a quick strike rate but do not necessarily get big scores. 

Joel Paris went for a lot of runs in his three overs but the rest of the bowlers were in top form. Rilee Meredith, Shadab Khan, and Patrick Dooley were exceptional. They picked up wickets and kept the runs down. The Hobart Hurricanes are gearing up to be a really dangerous team that is playing extremely modern T20 cricket.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions in Sydney are expected to be a bit overcast. There is some rain around but not too much is forecast to fall on match day. The pitch will be flat and excellent for batting. We have seen scores of around 170 regularly at the SCG and that should not be different in this match either. 

SYD vs HBH Betting Tips

While we think they Sydney Sixers are a bit undervalued, they are up against a very strong Hobart Hurricanes lineup. With the kind of batting depth the Hurricanes have, their bowling weaknesses may not matter much. Also, the poor form of the leading Sydney Sixers cannot be looked past. 

We think the match could be a close one but the Hobart Hurricanes nay end up just edging the contest.

Bet on the Hobart Hurricanes to win.

    To Hit A Six

    James Vince (2.10)


Vince has not really played to his potential so far but his talent is undeniable. He is certainly capable of clearing the boundary with ease and with the odds offering a 2x return, we think it is worth taking a punt on him.
