TAS vs SAU Dream11 Prediction: As the Marsh One Day Cup action resumes, South Australia and Tasmania battle it out in Adelaide on Sunday. While South Australia did manage to get over an opening-round loss with a resounding win over NSW, Tasmania is at the bottom of the table although it is still early days in the tournament. They welcome Matthew Wade back to the fold as they aim to open their account this season. South Australia has a very strong roster which gives them the favourites tag for this game although it should be a close game between the two sides.

The pitch generally favours the batsmen although there is something in it for both the spinners and the pacers. As the game progresses, spinners will have a greater say with 260-270 being competitive on this surface.
The weather is all clear for this game with temperatures also varying in the range of 17-19 degrees in South Australia. The pacers will get help early on with the new ball with some clouds also set to make an appearance during the start of the match
No injuries were reported from either side
Probable Playing XI
Tasmania’s chances of a win are boosted by Matthew Wade, who has been the standout player for them over the last few seasons. He should replace Alex Doolan with Ben McDermott dropping to number three. In Silk and Bailey, they possess a solid middle order which is backed by the pyrotechnics of James Faulkner. Riley Meredith and Nathan Ellis have impressed this season and will be crucial with the ball in hand
Matthew Wade, Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott, Jordan Silk, George Bailey, Beau Webster, James Faulkner, Gurinder Sandhu, Riley Meredith, Nathan Ellis and Jackson Bird.
South Australia shouldn’t be making any changes unless Jake Weatherald is included for this game. Callum Ferguson and Alex Carey will open the batting with the likes of Lehmann and Cooper following suit. Their bowling unit has a lot of experience with Kane Richardson and Joe Mennie already making their mark in the previous fixture.

Top Picks for TAU vs SAU Dream11 Team:
Both Matthew Wade and Alex Carey had a successful tour of England and are the ones to watch out for in this game. Tom Cooper has started the tournament in fine fashion but is overlooked for Callum Ferguson and Jake Lehmann, who are due for a big one. James Faulkner’s variations should yield a wicket or two while the in-form trio of Kane Richardson, Riley Meredith and Jackson Bird should suffice in the bowling department of the fantasy team.
