Match Details:

The Final of the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019 will be played between Queensland and Western Australia at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.

Preview:

The Marsh One-Day Cup will come to an end on Tuesday when Queensland hosts Western Australia at the Allan Border Field in the Finale. Queensland finished at the bottom of the table in the previous edition. But this time, they topped the points table. Both the finalists won five out of seven matches including two bonus points and were only separated by NRR.

By virtue of a better NRR, Queensland got a chance to host the final. Western Australia faced Queensland earlier in this tournament and ended up on the losing side. Chasing a target of 269 runs to win, the Western Australian side placed themselves at 218/3 in the 44th over. However, they lost their last seven wickets for only 24 runs and lost the game by 26 runs.


Weather Condition/Report:

The Marsh Cup final could be played under the clouds on Tuesday. However, no rain is expected at the Allan Border Field on match day.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Allan Border Field has been an ideal venue for the teams batting second. The reason for this is the tracks here getting better as the match progresses. At times, there will be some help for the pacers in the morning. Usually, the One-Day Cup finals have not been high-scoring ones recently. Hence, we don’t expect a flat track for Wednesday.

Average first innings score: 249 (Unaffected One-Day Cup matches since 2016)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 7, Lost – 1

Expert Advice:

Sam Heazlett scored fifties in all four matches of the Marsh Cup 2019 he played. However, a finger injury ensured that he did not play any match since the 2nd week of October. However, he has been named in the squad for the final and could be seen playing if he clears a fitness Test.

Cameron Bancroft is also doubtful as one among Cameroon Green and Hilton Cartwright has to miss out. These two players can be picked only based on the toss update. Bancroft scored three fifties in six matches he played this tournament and is likely to get first preference.

Probable Winners:

The strong Western Australia line-up is expected to win the tournament.
