Western Australia are atop the points table with three victories from three matches and hence can be termed to be in an imperious run of form right now. New South Wales though, have been defeated in all of their encounters so far, hence having failed to open up their points tally. Two teams with extremely contrasting momentum along with them; this is bound to be an exciting clash, though, Western Australia will start as the overwhelming favorites in this clash.
Marsh One-Day Cup 2019
Drummoyne Oval, Sydney
October 2nd, 2019
5:00 AM IST
Sunny weather with merely 2% chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 18 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of this game.
The Drummoyne Oval tends to present a peach of a batting track for the teams and hence a pretty high-scoring encounter could be on the cards this time around.
Predicted Playing XI:
New South Wales:
Jack Edwards and Moises Henriques will have to do the bulk of the scoring at the top order whilst Peter Nevill adds flair in the lower-middle order. Sean Abbott and Mickey Edwards would be integral to the team’s bowling plans.
Daniel Hughes, Jack Edwards, Moises Henriques, Matthew Gilkes, Arjun Nair, Nick Bertus, Peter Nevill (C & WK), Sean Abbott, Daniel Sams, Harry Conway, Mickey Edwards
Western Australia have an excellent batting unit with the likes of Marsh brothers, Cameron Bancroft and Marcus Stoinis comprising the middle-order. D Arcy Short’s quick batting at the top would be crucial for the team as well. They also boast of a brilliant bowling attack with the pace-bowling trio of Nathan Coulter Nile, Andrew Tye and Jhye Richardson leading the way.
D Arcy Short, Josh Philippe (WK), Shaun Marsh, Mitchell Marsh (C), Cameron Bancroft, Marcus Stoinis, Hilton Cartwright, Ashton Agar, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye, Jhye Richardson
Shaun Marsh looks to relish playing in this ground as he has notched four fifties in seven List A games at the Drummoyne Oval. His ability to briskly bulk up the number of runs with his busy batting style in the middle-overs can add up a notable number of points in the Dream XI side. Daniel Hughes scored 112 runs against the same opponents just yesterday, and hence he looks to be in a good run of form to be drafted in the team as well. Moises Henriques and Nathan Coulter Nile would be the other advisable top picks.
