On the last day of this year, the Lavington Oval will host a game between Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Thunder. This will be the only game that the venue will host a game in this season. Here, we look at the pitch report of Lavington Sports Oval and the weather conditions in Melbourne for BBL 2022/23.
BBL is heating up nicely to have an entertaining January. Although teams like Perth Scorchers have shown good form, other teams have proved that they are beatable. Teams such as Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat may not have done well but there is still ample time to string a comeback. Also, many teams will have some established batters feature for them in January. In Sydney Thunder’s case, after almost a decade, David Warner plays for them for a few games.
It is important for BBL to produce a few talents for Australian Cricket, especially in the bowling department. The likes of Mitchell Starc are not effective in T20s anymore and this will be an aspect the board will have to focus on in domestic cricket.

This stadium has not hosted a lot of games in the past. Hence, there is not much data for the teams to derive. Nevertheless, based on how the domestic games have happened here, teams could be aligned accordingly.
It is known that this track helps the batters. However, in the past, some games have seen the bowlers also dominate in phases. Hence, we can expect a close game between the teams in BBL.
