Preview:

New South Wales and South Australia started their respective campaigns by playing Queensland at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane. Interestingly, both the teams ended up losing while defending a total. NSW banked on the fifties from Jack Edwards, Moises Henriques and Nicholas Bertus to finish on 305/5. The total was too less against an attacking Queensland line-up which chased it down with two overs to spare.

On the other hand, the South Australia team struggled with the bat in their first match. They were 105/2 at halfway stage collapsed to 182/8. Tom Cooper’s 62 and Joe Mennie’s quick 31 towards the end helped the SA side to finish with 226. After recording a 300+ chase, the target of 227 looked too less for Queensland. Three fifties for the top five helped the hosts to a 7-wicket win in 35.5 overs only.

Expert Advice:

Daniel Sams wasn’t included in the NSW XI for the previous match. If Sams is included, he has to be picked at any cost in the fantasy team and preferred as captain or vice-captain. The short square boundaries will make things tough for the spinners. Adam Zampa was quite expensive in the last game as a result of that. And hence, we have not picked him in our Suggested XIs.

Probable Winners:

New South Wales is expected to put on a much better performance and register their first win.
