BBL 06: Twitter Reacts As Hobart Hurricanes And Perth Scorchers Register Comfortable Victories

The Hobart Hurricanes began their Big Bash League season in style by registering a comfortable victory of 60 runs over Sydney Sixers.

Batting first, the Hurricanes, led by their openers Tim Paine and D’Arcy Short, scored 200 for 6 in their 20 overs. Short, who was making his T20 debut, smashed 61 off only  29 deliveries while his experienced opening partner Paine adopted a more cautious approach and scored 63 off 45 balls.

In reply, the Sixers never looked like chasing down the huge target and were eventually dismissed for 140 runs in the 17th over. Jason Roy (40) and Sam Billings (42) tried their best to put up a fight but did not get any support from the other end.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the match:

In the second match of the day.

Batting first, the Scorchers piled up 197 for 7.Ian Bell (64) shared 50-plus partnership with Sam Whiteman (22) and Mitchell Marsh (31) before Ashton Turned provided the finishing touches with a quickfire 44.

In reply, the Strikers began disastrously and lost their top three batsmen with only 15 runs on the board. Strikers captain Brad Hodge waged a lone battle but the writing was on the wall when he became the sixth wicket to fall on 86 after scoring 56. Kane Richardson (45 from 28 balls) tried to make the game interesting with a late cameo but it was not enough as his team fell short by 48 runs.

Here are some of the best reactions:
