Hobart Hurricanes would be looking out to end their losing streak when they will face off Sydney Strikers in their first home game of Women’s Big Bash league 2017-18. So, far they have played two matches and faced defeat in both the games. On the other hand, Sydney Sixers will enter the ground with one change in their squad for the weekend match.
