Match Details:

The 12th match of the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019 will be played between New South Wales and Western Australia at the Drummoyne Oval in Sydney.

The match starts at 10:30 AM local time (5:00 AM IST) (11:30 PM GMT – Prev Day)

This game will be live on the Cricket Australia website.

Preview:

Western Australia’s winning streak has been extended to three matches as they defeated New South Wales in their first away game. Western Australia won their first two games by 100+ margins but this time, it was a close win. Shaun Marsh’s first fifty of the season helped Western Australia to finish on 210/6 in the restricted 35 overs and the hosts got a revised target of 244 runs.

It looked quite easy for NSW when Daniel Hughes and Moises Henriques were going well. The duo added 142 runs for the 2nd wicket in 19.5 overs before Henriques got out for a 65-ball 75. Hughes didn’t find much support from the other end as the equation came down to 20 runs from last two overs. Hughes got to face only four balls in among those as his unbeaten 96-ball 112 resulted in a defeat.


Weather Condition/Report:

The rain did trouble the first game of the season at the Drummoyne Oval. However, on Wednesday, skies will be empty throughout the duration of the match and no interruption is expected.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Drummoyne Oval was expected to be a high-scoring venue and it did saw a high-scoring match on Monday which was reduced to 35 overs. The sides batting first would be feeling anything over 300 as a safe total here. The shorter side boundaries here helps in producing big totals and also aids the chasing teams.

Average first innings score: 271 (unaffected List A matches since 2017)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 1

Injury and Availability News:

Ashton Turner was replaced by Hilton Cartwright ahead of their 3rd match. Turner suffered a finger injury and is unlikely to play on Wednesday.


Probable Playing XIs:

New South Wales:

Daniel Hughes, Jack Edwards, Moises Henriques, Matthew Gilkes, Arjun Nair, Nick Bertus, Peter Nevill (C & WK), Sean Abbott, Daniel Sams, Harry Conway, Mickey Edwards.

Bench: Nick Larkin, Daniel Fallins.

Western Australia:

D’Arcy Short, Josh Philippe (WK), Shaun Marsh, Mitchell Marsh (C), Cameron Bancroft, Marcus Stoinis, Hilton Cartwright, Ashton Agar, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye, Jhye Richardson.

Bench: Ashton Turner, Matthew Kelly, Joel Paris.


Top Picks:

At the end of the 2017/18 season, Daniel Hughes’ List A record read 782 runs from 14 innings at an average of 65.17 with three hundreds and four fifties. Last season, he scored 79 in a game but only 18 runs in the remaining four innings. Even in the ongoing edition, Hughes scored only 29 and 7. But the unbeaten 112 will give him the much-needed confidence.

Shaun Marsh now has four fifties from seven List A innings at the Drummoyne Oval and would be hoping to add one more on Wednesday. Western Australia’s pace trio of Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye and Jhye Richardson continue to be crucial in fantasy cricket.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Captain – D’Arcy Short, Daniel Sams, Moises Henriques, Shaun Marsh

Vice-Captain – Josh Philippe, Marcus Stoinis, Daniel Hughes, Jack Edwards

Moises Henriques has begun to bowl a decent number of overs which would make him a good option as captain or vice-captain.


Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:

Keeper – Josh Philippe, Matthew Gilkes

Batsmen – D’Arcy Short, Shaun Marsh (VC), Daniel Hughes

All-Rounders – Daniel Sams, Moises Henriques (C), Marcus Stoinis

Bowlers – Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jhye Richardson, Harry Conway

Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:

Keeper – Josh Philippe, Cameron Bancroft

Batsmen – Shaun Marsh, Jack Edwards, Daniel Hughes (VC)

All-Rounders – Marcus Stoinis, Daniel Sams (VC), Moises Henriques

Bowlers – Sean Abbott, Harry Conway, Jhye Richardson


Expert Advice:

Only one of Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis are expected to perform well given the identical roles they play for Western Australia. Marsh bats higher compared to Stoinis but the later has been more effective than his skipper thus far.

Probable Winners:

Western Australia is expected to seal their 2nd win over NSW in three days span.
