In a repeat of Sunday’s fixture, Victoria and Queensland take centre stage once again at the Junction Oval in the Marsh One Day Cup 2019. Queensland is unbeaten so far with three wins out of three while Victoria has only one game which leaves them in the bottom half of the points table. Queensland’s strength in batting prevailed against Victoria last time around with the returning Usman Khawaja scoring a sensational hundred. They will look to keep their winning run intact although the big guns in the Victorian side would have other ideas come Tuesday.

Junction Oval, Melbourne
Mostly cloudy conditions with no threat of rain and temperature ranging around 12 degree Celsius expected during the course of the game.
Although the pitch does provide some help for the pacers, it is a good pitch to bat on. The batsmen will have to bide their time in the middle before going big just as the Queensland opening pair of Sam Heazlett and Usman Khawaja did on Sunday. 270 should be par on the surface with batting first being preferred by teams winning the toss.
No major injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Aaron Finch managed to get some runs under his belt in the previous fixture. This could get him going in the competition heading into the new season. While he is one pick, the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Matthew Renshaw, who can roll the arms over for a couple of overs are also viable candidates. Will Sutherland has impressed with both bat and ball and warranties a place in the fantasy side while James Pattinson and Mark Steketee should be backed to continue their fine form with the ball on Tuesday as well.
