Preview:

New South Wales Blues, the runners-up of the previous One-Day Cup will take the field for the first time in the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019 on Sunday. They will be up against the Queensland team at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane. The likes of Jack Edwards, Moises Henriques and Daniel Sams will be the ones to watch out in NSW Blues. They will hope for consistency from Daniel Hughes and Kurtis Patterson with the bat.

The duo had only one half-century between them during the previous edition. On the other hand, Queensland will miss the services of Chris Lynn throughout the tournament. The top four of Max Bryant, Sam Heazlett, Joe Burns and Marnus Labuschagne will have a key role to play in Lynn’s absence. Queensland were lucky to make it to the semis last year despite winning only one match during the league phase.


Weather Condition/Report:

A bit of cloud covering could be around the Allan Border Field in the morning. Things are expected to get cleared by 10 AM. They could be a delayed start but no further reductions until the end of the game.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Allan Border Field didn’t host any matches last year. It stood host for five full 50-over matches in the One-Day Cup across 2016 and 2017. In all the five matches, the team batting first finished with totals between 230 and 280 with four of them being chased down. Chasing is easier here and the pitches this time are expected to be batting friendly with the average score nearing 300.

Average first innings score: 257 (Unaffected One-Day Cup matches since 2016)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 4, Lost – 1

Probable Playing XIs:

Queensland:

Max Bryant, Sam Heazlett, Joe Burns, Marnus Labuschagne, Matt Renshaw, Jimmy Peirson (C), Jack Wildermuth, Xavier Bartlett, Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann, Billy Stanlake.

Bench: Charlie Hemphrey, Michael Neser, Cameron Gannon.

Bench: Matthew Gilkes, Daniel Sams, Liam Hatcher.


Top Picks:

Sam Heazlett had a brilliant 2018/19 season with the bat where he scored 380 runs across seven innings. Young Jack Edwards showed maturity by becoming the youngest player to score a One-Day Cup hundred. His opening partner during the U19 CWC, Max Bryant is little inconsistent. He usually tries to go hard in the first 10 overs and ends up with the 30s and 40s but got the capability of producing a big ton. Mark Steketee claimed 14 wickets last year and also contributed with the bat when needed.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Captain – Jack Edwards, Moises Henriques, Daniel Sams, Sam Heazlett

Vice-Captain – Marnus Labuschagne, Sean Abbott, Max Bryant, Michael Neser

In four innings during the last season, Daniel Sams scored 152 runs with two fifties and took 9 wickets in five innings with the bat. He will be a perfect choice as captain or vice-captain.


Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:

Keeper – Jimmy Peirson

Batsmen – Daniel Hughes, Jack Edwards, Max Bryant, Sam Heazlett (C), Marnus Labuschagne

All-Rounders – Moises Henriques (VC), Arjun Nair
