Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

With Queensland defeating Tasmania on Monday, the encounter between Victoria and South Australia has turned into a dead rubber in the ongoing Marsh One-Day Cup. For South Australia to have any chance of qualifying to the final, they wanted Tasmania to win against Queensland. But with that not happening, both Victoria and South Australia now will play an inconsequential game and look to end the tournament on a high.

Both the sides have been very much inconsistent this season winning three in six matches. South Australia just managed to stay in the hunt until the Monday’s game thanks to their bonus-point victories. With the match set to be played at the MCG, both the sides will be aiming to make it a memorable one for them and signoff from the competition as the third-placed side.

Weather Report

The conditions will be cloudy to start with in the morning in Melbourne. However, the sun is expected to come out by 2-3 PM. There is no chance of rain as well according to AccuWeather, which should pave the way for an exciting game of cricket. The temperature will hover around 17-20 Degrees Celsius during the match.
