Here are all the statistical highlights from Hobart Hurricanes’ big chase during THU vs HUR game:
Hurricanes get the better of Thunder again:
9 – Hobart Hurricanes now have defeated Sydney Thunder nine times in the BBL across 15 meetings. They won more matches in this league only against Brisbane Heat (11). These nine defeats are also the joint 2nd most against any team for the Thunder behind 12 by Sydney Sixers (1 Super Over win).
Monday’s game was only the 2nd appearance in the BBL for Hurricanes at the Manuka Oval. They faced Sydney Thunder in the 2018-19 season at this venue and lost by 4 wickets.
Yet another ‘90’ for McDermott:
2 – Ben McDermott became the 2nd player in the BBL history after D’Arcy Short to be dismissed in the 90s on multiple occasions. He got out scoring 91 earlier this season against Melbourne Stars. McDermott is one of the five players with two scores of the 90s in the BBL after D’Arcy Short (3), Chris Lynn (2), Marcus Stoinis (2) and Shaun Marsh (2).
3 – McDermott now has three scores of 90+ in the BBL which are the joint 2nd most by any player behind D’Arcy Short (5). McDermott is currently leveled in this list with Marcus Stoinis (3) and Chris Lynn (3).
A big knock by McDermott:
96 – Ben McDermott’s 96 is now the highest score in the T20 format at the Manuka Oval surpassing Josh Philippe’s 84 for the Sydney Sixers which was scored two days ago also against Perth Scorchers.
96 – The 96-run knock by McDermott is now the joint 2nd highest in the BBL matches between Hurricanes and Thunder. D’Arcy Short made 97 for the Hurricanes in the 2017-18 season while Ben Dunk also scored 96 runs for the Hurricanes during the 2013-14 season.
Boland’s expensive 4-fer:
4/41 – Scott Boland conceded 41 runs while picking four wickets for the Hobart Hurricanes which is now the 2nd most expensive 4-wicket haul in the BBL in terms of runs conceded. James Faulkner gave away 46 runs for his 4-fer against Hobart Hurricanes in the 2011-12 season while representing Melbourne Stars. This was also the 2nd 4-fer in the BBL for Boland and is only behind four players in the list of bowlers with most 4-fers in the league.
