Queensland take on South Australia in the upcoming fixture of the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019. The Queenslanders have made a positive start to their campaign and sit pretty at the top of the table with 14 points in their account. Likewise, South Australia possesses a decent enough record of two wins and two defeats in their four games and occupy the third position on the leaderboard. After suffering their first defeat of the tournament against Victoria, the leaders would look to get back to winning ways and do carry a slight edge over their opponents ahead of this encounter.
Marsh One-Day Cup 2019
Queensland vs South Australia
23rd October 2019
5:30 AM IST
Allan Border Field, Brisbane
Partly Cloudy conditions with minimal chances of rain and temperature ranging around 24 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
It should be a good batting track with plenty of runs on offer for the batsmen and given the opulence of batting talent on both sides, a riveting high-scoring encounter could be on the cards.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Sam Heazlett and Usman Khawaja form a solid opening pair whilst the likes of Marnus Labuschagne, Matt Renshaw and Joe Burns add considerable muscle power to the batting unit. Michael Nesser and Billy Stanlake will be potent threats with the bowl in hand.
Sam Heazlett, Usman Khawaja(c), Marnus Labuschagne, Matt Renshaw, Joe Burns, Ben Cutting, Jimmy Peirson(w), Michael Neser, Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann, Billy Stanlake
Jake Weatherald and Callum Ferguson are steady figures at the top and the onus will lie on them to provide a solid foundation for their side. In the middle order, the flamboyant Alex Carey and skipper Travis Head can accelerate the flow of runs and help the team post a mammoth total on the scoreboard whereas Kane Richardson will lead the bowling attack.

Usman Khawaja smashed a ton in the previous game and could continue his fine form in this match. Sam Hazlett and Matt Renshaw also chipped in with scores of 69(51) and 66(73) respectively. Both batters deserve a place in the Dream11 Team. For South Australia, the pairing of Alex Carey and Travis Head is a must-pick due to their ability to amass runs at a brisk rate. In the last game, Carey scored 80 from just 52 deliveries and hence his tantalizing form makes him an ideal choice for captaincy in your fantasy side.
