Match Details:

The 11th match of the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019 will be played between South Australia and Tasmania at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide.

The match starts at 11:00 AM local time (12:30 AM IST) (6:00 AM GMT)

This game will be live on the Cricket Australia website.


South Australia’s first home One-Day Cup match in six seasons resulted in a disaster as they suffered a 5-wicket defeat against Tasmania. After opting to bat first, the hosts crumbled to 8/3 by end of the 2nd over. The in-form batsman Tom Cooper also got out in the 11th over scoring 23. But Alex Ross’s unbeaten 82 and Jake Lehmann’s 50 pushed the home team to 228/9.

The ever consistent Ben McDermott stood tall for the visitors with an unbeaten century. Opener Caleb Jewell scored 64 off 77 balls to make things easy for Tasmania. Matthew Wade and Jordan Silk scored 20s and two more wickets followed when they were four runs away from a win. McDermott, with a 140-ball 103* ensured they didn’t repeat what they did against Victoria and handed his side their first win.

Weather Condition/Report:

The game on Tuesday at the Karen Rolton Oval could be played under a striking sun. There will be no clouds at any point of the match unlike the periodic cloud covering in the morning during Sunday’s match.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Karen Rolton Oval’s List A debut turned out to be a nightmare for the hosts who three wickets in first two overs. The conditions weren’t that tough in the first hour but the selection of shots added to their misery. The venue, in general, is good enough to produce 270+ totals. As the batting gets easy in the second half, the teams will be able to chase as high as 280-290.

Average first innings score: 228 (List A matches)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 0

Injury and Availability News:

Probable Playing XIs:

South Australia:

Alex Carey (WK), Callum Ferguson, Jake Lehmann, Travis Head (C), Tom Cooper, Alex Ross, Cameron Valente, Joe Mennie, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Lloyd Pope.

Bench: Harry Nielsen, Luke Robins.


Matthew Wade (C), Ben McDermott, Alex Doolan, Caleb Jewell/Beau Webster, Jordan Silk, George Bailey, Jake Doran (WK), James Faulkner, Jackson Bird, Riley Meredith, Gurinder Sandhu, Nathan Ellis.

Bench: Caleb Jewell/Beau Webster, Jarrod Freeman.

Top Picks:

Matthew Wade might be batting at No.3 instead of opening but his consistency is unlikely to take an effect. All the pacers in both the teams are crucial given the number of wickets they have taken this season. Callum Ferguson has a tendency of scoring a big knock after a streak of low scores. Given the situation his team is in at the moment, Ferguson scoring a ton won’t be a surprise. Travis Head bowled his full quota of ten overs in the last game which will increase chances of earning big points in fantasy cricket if he bats well.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Captain – Matthew Wade, Ben McDermott, Callum Ferguson, Travis Head

Vice-Captain – Tom Cooper, James Faulkner, George Bailey, Alex Carey

Ben McDermott scored three tons and three fifties in the 10 One-Day Cup innings at an average of 79.12 since the start of last season. He will be an ideal choice as captain or vice-captain for this game.

Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:

Keeper – Matthew Wade, Ben McDermott (C)

Batsmen – Caleb Jewell, Alex Ross, Jake Lehmann

All-Rounders – Tom Cooper (VC), Cameron Valente, James Faulkner

Bowlers – Jackson Bird, Kane Richardson, Gurinder Sandhu

Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:

Keeper – Ben McDermott, Alex Carey

Batsmen – Callum Ferguson (C), George Bailey, Caleb Jewell, Travis Head

All-Rounders – Cameron Valente, James Faulkner (VC)

Bowlers – Joe Mennie, Nathan Ellis, Adam Zampa

Expert Advice:

Alex Carey hasn’t done enough justice to his potential in the List A format. He is yet to score a hundred and occupies 10 credits in the fantasy team. Moreover, he is in the keepers’ category along with Wade and McDermott. Picking him ahead of them will unsettle the team balance as only a maximum of five players can be picked from all-rounders and bowlers.

Probable Winners:

Tasmania might get their 2nd straight game if their bowling strikes big once again.
