The 2019 Marsh One-Day Cup began with a variety of matches but the ones that caught attraction included Western Australia and Tasmania who will face off on Wednesday at the WACA. Western Australia began the tournament with a record score of 386/8 against Victoria in the tournament opener. Marcus Stoinis’ unbeaten century added at least 50 runs more than what was expected to the team’s total. They saw through a 125-run with their wicket-taking ability despite going expensive.

On the other hand, Tasmania had a bizarre game to start. A collective bowling effort from them saw the Victorian team bundled out to 185. A solid knock from Ben McDermott made the chase look easy. With six wickets in hand, Tasmania accelerated to achieve the bonus point. The equation came down to 5 from 6 balls for a bonus point with 5 wickets in hand. But they lost 3 wickets for 2 runs in 40th over and the remaining two wickets for one run in the 41st only to lose the game by 1 run.

Weather Condition/Report:

A bit of cloud covering along with showers could be seen on Wednesday morning in Perth. However, from 12 PM, the forecast is quite clear and no interruptions will be seen.

Pitch Condition/Report:

A high-scoring match was followed by a low-scoring thriller at the WACA. We might see a game with 270+ scores on Wednesday as it will be played on a different track. A sharp bounce was witnessed while the pacers bowled during the previous match.

Average first innings score: 250 (List A matches since 2018)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2

Injury and Availability News:

Matthew Wade has made himself available for this match. He or his opening partner Ben McDermott will be keeping the wickets for Tasmania.

Probable Playing XIs:

Western Australia:

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

Bench: Matthew Kelly, Joel Paris.


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

Bench: Caleb Jewell, Alex Pyecroft, Jarrod Freeman, Jake Doran.

Top Picks:

Cameron Bancroft continued his good run in the 50-over format with a 78-run knock. Marcus Stoinis is going to be crucial with the ball and with the bat for his explosive knocks. Jordan Silk’s record at the WACA is trustable. Shaun Marsh has often struggled at this venue as bagged single digit in the high-scoring game. Gurinder Sandhu bagged 18 wickets in only six matches in the previous edition. He started off this season with a couple of them.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Captain – Ben McDermott, Cameron Bancroft, Marcus Stoinis, George Bailey

Vice-Captain – Josh Philippe, James Faulkner, Ashton Agar, Jordan Silk

Ben McDermott now has five fifty-plus scores in his last 8 One-Day Cup matches. If he keeps wickets ahead of Matthew Wade, he will add points with his catching. He took four catches in the last match.

Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:

Keeper – Ben McDermott (C), Josh Philippe, Cameron Bancroft

Batsmen – George Bailey, Ashton Turner, Jordan Silk

All-Rounders – Ashton Agar, Marcus Stoinis (VC)

Bowlers – Nathan Ellis, Jackson Bird, Nathan Coulter-Nile

Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:

Keeper – Cameron Bancroft (C), Ben McDermott

Batsmen – George Bailey, D’Arcy Short, Beau Webster

All-Rounders – James Faulkner (VC), Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Marsh

Bowlers – Gurinder Sandhu, Nathan Ellis, Jhye Richardson

Expert Advice:

Matthew Wade is all set to play this match but is not included in Dream11 yet. However, if he is included, he has to be picked in the XI. Given Wade’s recent success in the 50-overs format, Josh Phillipe can be excluded if he is included as a keeper in the Dream11. If he is in batsmen’s category, Webster and Silk can be removed.

Probable Winners:

Western Australia could be seen registering their 2nd consecutive win of the tournament.
