Unbeaten Cane Train up for any chase
THEY are the Kings of the chase and now the Hurricanes bandwagon is rolling into Launceston.
Hobart sits undefeated in BBL08 after Friday night’s seven-wicket win over previously unbeaten Sydney Thunder at Blundstone Arena.
The Hurricanes host the Perth Scorchers at University of Tasmania Stadium today, with the visitors, including the man at the centre of sandpapergate — former Test batsman Cameron Bancroft — in his first game back after serving his nine-month ban.
But for the locals, all eyes will be on the team in purple.
Friday’s night victory, chasing 6-193 with five balls to spare, was the fourth highest successful chase in BBL history. In a re- markable feat, the Hurricanes hold all top four successful run chases, showing no target is too great for the Cane Train.
The Hurricanes WBBL will also be in action today and tomorrow when they try to lift themselves off the bottom of the ladder against the secondplaced Brisbane Heat.
The WBBL action starts at 1.50pm with the BBL beginning at 7.15pm.
