Hobart Hurricanes futures betting

Although the ‘Canes went deep again last year, there is little love for them in the outright betting for BBL09. Given this squad boasts some of the country’s form limited-overs players, there might be some serious value in backing Hobart to make another run at the title.

Tips for betting on the Hobart Hurricanes

For so long a rag-tag bunch of unassuming also-rans, the Hurricanes now have a talented roster that features some of the most explosive players in the competition. Keep an eye on these names.

Most wickets betting
With Jofra Archer gone, the scene is set for Riley Meredith to take the next step in his rapid rise. The Tasmanian speedster was one of the breakout stars of BBL8 and could make a case for national selection with another strong campaign. Scott Boland is an excellent addition to the bowling attack and veteran left-armer James Faulkner remains a big threat at this level.

Most runs betting
The opening combo of D’Arcy Short and Matthew Wade tore the competition to shreds last season. Wade will miss the early stages of the season due to Test duties, so the likes of Ben McDermott and Caleb Jewell will need to play their part.

Hobart Hurricanes all-time XI

The Hurricanes have had some world-class talent grace their list over the years, including Ricky Ponting, Kumar Sangakkara, Shaun Tait, Stuart Broad and Alex Hales. None of those names feature in Hobart’s all-time XI.

There is a big fight over the keeper’s slot, as no fewer than three recognised glovesmen feature in the top seven. Tim Paine mans the stumps, with Matthew Wade and Ben McDermott completing a very gifted batting lineup.

Dan Christian is a lock for the allrounder spot and Jofra Archer spearheads a bowling attack that also includes the BBL’s all-time top wicket-taker, Ben Laughlin. Cameron Boyce and Xavier Doherty have both done enough to justify the inclusion of two specialist spinners.
