BBL 2020-21 will get underway on December 10th with a clash between the defending champions Sydney Sixers and the Hobart Hurricanes at the Bellerive Oval.
The two teams faced off twice last year, where the Hurricanes prevailed in the first game before the second fixture did not produce a result.
The Hurricanes have used Bellerive Oval as their home venue for quite some time.
The Hobart-based BBL team will look forward to kicking off their 2020-21 season with a victory. Meanwhile, the Sixers will aim to avenge their previous season’s loss.
The ground will also play a neutral host to four BBL games in the 2020-21 season. Many T20 encounters have taken place in Hobart over the last few years. Here’s a look at some vital stats you need to know from the previous games played at the venue.
It is noteworthy that the games at the Bellerive Oval were of a lop-sided nature. The home team only won two of the five matches.
The spinners enjoyed much success at the ground, with D’Arcy Short registering a five-wicket haul against Sydney Thunder.
