Two teams, with absolutely opposite run of form behind them will compete against each other tomorrow in the Marsh Cup. New South Wales have failed to register even a single victory in two matches and are at the bottom of the points table. However, Western Australia are on the second spot with two wins from a couple of matches. It would be quite a task for NSW to get one over their more prominent opponents when the sides take the field.
New South Wales vs Western Australia, Marsh Cup 2019
Drummoyne Oval, Sydney
September 30th, 2019
5:00 PM IST
Cloudy weather with 24% chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 16 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the encounter.
Sydney will present a good batting track but it can tend to become a bit sluggish in the later stages of the game, so, the spinners could attain some benefits through the same.
Predicted Playing XI:
New South Wales:
Moises Henriques and Kurtis Patterson will have to shoulder the major responsibilities of the batting order whereas Peter Nevill will be banked upon to provide the quick flow of runs later on in the innings. Sean Aboott and Harry Conway will hold the key with the ball.
Daniel Hughes, Jack Edwards, Moises Henriques, Kurtis Patterson, Arjun Nair, Nick Bertus, Peter Nevill (C & WK), Sean Abbott, Daniel Sams, Harry Conway, Mickey Edwards
D Arcy Short and Shaun Marsh lead the charge from the top order whereas the likes of Cameron Bancroft, Ashton Turner and Marcus Stoinis add firepower, variety and flair to the lineup towards the end. N Coulter Nile and Andrew Tye along with Jhye Richardson come together to possible form the most prominent side in the competition so far.
D Arcy Short, Josh Philippe (WK), Shaun Marsh, Mitchell Marsh (C), Cameron Bancroft, Ashton Turner, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Agar, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye, Jhye Richardson
Shaun Marsh and Ashton Turner can add some valuable points as the former can accumulate runs in abundance whereas the latter’s big-hitting ability would mean that he can bog up a considerable number of points within a short period of time. Marcus Stoinis, Sean Abbott and Jhye Richardson would be the other advisable picks.
1: Shaun Marsh
2: Marcus Stoinis
3: Jack Edwards
