Match Details:

The 14th match of the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019 will be played between Western Australia and Victoria at the WACA Ground in Perth.

The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (11:30 AM IST) (6:00 AM GMT)

This game can be viewed on the Cricket Australia website.

Preview:

The Western Australia team has got off to a flyer in the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019 with three straight victories. They thumped Victoria and Tasmania in their first two games by big margins before edging past New South Wales. However, in the very next match, the NSW team got better of Western Australia to hand them their first defeat of the tournament.

They will now host Victoria once again just like in the first match of the competition. The Victorian team’s batting struggled in the first three matches where they bagged only one win. Even that win came by the virtue of a collapse by Tasmania trying to earn a bonus point. They finally put an end to their misery when Aaron Finch scored an unbeaten 188 against Queensland just before the Sheffield Shield break.


Weather Condition/Report:

A bit of cloud cover is expected throughout Wednesday in Perth. From 12 PM local time, the weather forecast indicates the chances of showers.

Pitch Condition/Report:

In three matches this season at WACA, the batting first team scored more than 300 in two games. Players who enjoy pace are likely to score big here. If the home team Western Australia bat first again, we are likely to witness another 300+ total.

Average first innings score: 260 (List A matches since 2018)

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