Western Australia travel to Queensland in the 16th match of the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019. With four victories, a solitary defeat and 18 points in their account, Western Australia sit pretty at the summit of the points table. Just behind them on the leaderboard are their opponents-Queensland, who after registering three wins on the bounce have lost their last two games and will be desperate to recapture some of their positive early season momentum.
Marsh One-Day Cup 2019
Queensland vs Western Australia
31st October 2019
5:00 AM IST
Carrara Oval, Queensland
Partly Cloudy conditions with few chances of rain and temperature ranging around 24 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
Due to the overcast conditions, there should be some movement on offer for the pacers with the shiny new ball whilst the spinners too will grow into the game as the match progresses.
A number of key players will be missing because of their international commitments. Billy Stanlake, Ashton Agar and Ashton Turner won’t play a part in this match due to the aforementioned reason. Andrew Tye misses out due to injury.
Probable Playing XI:
Usman Khawaja holds the key in the batting department and should be duly supported by the likes of Marnus Labuschagne and Matt Renshaw, who have been in good touch in this tournament. After chipping in with three wickets in the last game, Jack Wildermuth is one to watch out for in the bowling unit and is expected to assume more responsibility in the absence of Billy Stanlake.
Max Bryant, Usman Khawaja(c), Marnus Labuschagne, Matt Renshaw, Joe Burns, Jimmy Peirson(w), Ben Cutting, Jack Wildermuth, Michael Neser, Matthew Kuhnemann, Mark Steketee
Josh Philippe, D’ Arcy Short and Shaun Marsh form a daunting top-order and the mantle of run-scoring will lie heavily on their shoulders. In the middle, Mitchell Marsh and Hilton Cartwright replace Ashton Turner and Ashton Agar in the side whilst Jhye Richardson will have a crucial role to play with the bowl in hand.
Josh Philippe(w), D Arcy Short, Shaun Marsh, Mitchell Marsh(c), Cameron Bancroft, Marcus Stoinis, Hilton Cartwright, Aaron Hardie, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jhye Richardson, Matthew Kelly
Despite missing out in the last game, Usman Khawaja should be the first name on the teamsheet owing to his incredible form throughout the competition. Marnus Labuschagne plundered a century (135 off 127) in the last game and should be backed to get another big score in this upcoming contest. Cameron Bancroft also makes the team after he scored 76 from 70 balls in the previous match. Shaun Marsh and Marcus Stoinis are other must-picks in the Dream11 Team.
