The Marsh Cup 2019
Allan Border Field, Brisbane

The New South Wales are eight-time champions in this tournament but finished fifth in the previous edition and hence would want to improve their performance this time around. The Queensland Bulls didn’t fare much better, as they ended up in the sixth spot. Both these teams would have a point to prove this time around for sure.
Partly cloudy weather with 12% chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 22 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the encounter.
Brisbane often offers a track with conducive bounce and pace, which can mean that the batsmen could make merry at it if they get in the groove and adapt to it swiftly.
Predicted Playing XI:
Joe Burns, Matt Renshaw and Marnus Labuschagne will shoulder the major responsibilities from the batting department whilst Billy Stanlake will be the key with the ball.
Sam Heazlett, Michael Neser, Billy Stanlake, Mitchell Swepson, M Stekeete, Matthew Kuhnemann, Jimmy Peirson, Max Bryant, Joe Burns, Matt Renshaw, Marnus Labuschagne
New South Wales:
Kurtis Patterson has been a star performer in the domestic circuit for quite some time. However, here, Peter Nevill, Moises Henriques and Sean Abbott will be equally depended upon to contribute well enough in the game.
Daniel Sams, Arjun Nair, Sean Abbott, M Edwards, Matthew Gilkes, Nathan McAndrew, Peter Nevill, Kurtis Patterson, Daniel Hughes, Jack Edwards, Moises Henriques
Matt Renshaw and Marnus Labuschagne can earn a considerable number of points with their brisk yet effective batting style. Moises Henriques can add up a lot of points if he bats higher up the order and rolls his arms over for a couple of overs as well.
