Unlike the in-form Brisbane Heat, the Hobart Hurricanes team is currently struggling in 5th position in the points table. They have managed three victories in their last six games and have a net run rate of -0.068.

Pitch Report

The Gabba wicket offers reliable pace and bounce to both batters and bowlers. The overcast conditions mean there will be some swing and assistance to the fast bowlers.
