Tim David and Ingram Magnificient Inning lead Hobart Hurricanes to win over Sydney Sixers. In Big Bash League with the new rules.

Sydney Sixers have won the toss and have opted to field. Both teams are without their first-choice captains here, with Matthew Wade and Moises Henriques missing.

The new rules are:

The Power Surge – Making the power play at the start of the innings just four overs, while batting teams can then pick our over powerplay with only two players outside the ring in the second 10 overs.

X-Factor – After the 10th over of each innings, teams will be able to substitute the 12th or 13th man on their team sheet into the game.

Bash Boost – The team winning the game after 10 overs will get one point towards the standings, while the winning team will be awarded three points.

Sydney Sixers: Justin Avendano, Lloyd Pope

Hobart Hurricanes: Celeb Jewell, Nick Winter

Ingram and Peter Handscomb did a fine job of rebuilding the Hurricanes innings after they had lost both their openers within the first seven deliveries.

After the first of the two Power Surge overs had been expensive, the Hurricanes came back strongly with Dan Christian getting the big wicket of Colin Ingram.

After 14 overs, Hobart were 4/96, but Power Surge saw three straight fours and 19 over the over in the 15 as Colin Ingram and Tim David went to work with just two men out.

Despite losing wickets frequently at the other end, Tim David played an incredible innings to guide Hurricanes to 178/8 in their 20 overs.

Christian and Ben Dwarshuis were the pick of the bowlers for the Hurricanes, with three wickets each.

After the early dismissal of Philippe 1 off 3 deliveries, Hurricanes’ 10 over a score of 73 in 8.4 overs, the Sixers won the first Big Bash Boost point. Jack Edwards 47 runs off 39 deliveries and James Vince 67 runs off 41 deliveries have done a fabulous job.

Despite the fabulous Inning of Edwards and Vince Sydney Sixers lost their wicket in regular interval Skipper Daniel Hughes 9, Jordan Silk 13 and Daniel Christian 10 runs contribution was not enough. Hobart Hurricanes beat Sydney Sixers by 16 runs. Full Scorecard.

Tim David | Player of the Match (58 off 33): It wasn’t an ideal start, but the openers are good players but that happens sometimes. We batted well enough in the end, and our bowling did extremely well to get us through. A lot of new guys in our group who have really bonded well together and have contributed together as a team tonight.
