Hur­ri­canes aim to go out fir­ing against Scorchers

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT - BRETT STUBBS

THE sun might be set­ting on the Hur­ri­canes WBBL sea­son, but Ho­bart is still try­ing to find its best com­bi­na­tion for fu­ture sea­sons. The Hur­ri­canes will fin­ish WBBL05 out of the fi­nals, with matches to­day and to­mor­row against the Perth Scorchers at the high-scor­ing Li­lac Hill. With just three wins from 12 games, the new-look Hur­ri­canes have failed to fire con­sis­tently, de­spite show­ing patches of bril­liance. Hur­ri­canes coach Sal­liann Briggs said the side would fid­dle with the bat­ting or­der but not the per­son­nel. Big-hit­ting South African im­port Chloe Tryon could be el­e­vated up the or­der, af­ter be­ing asked to do too much in the mid­dle or­der in pre­vi­ous games. Briggs said the new group was still find­ing what worked best. “But they are the ones we have re­cruited and have in­vested in and th­ese games are great op­por­tu­ni­ties to learn. “We will back them to beat the Scorchers twice. The girls we’ve got, es­pe­cially the home­grown girls, are the ones who will help this team grow.”
