Match Details:

The 9th match of the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019 will be played between New South Wales and Western Australia at the Drummoyne Oval in Sydney.

The match starts at 10:30 AM local time (5:00 AM IST) (11:30 PM GMT – Prev Day)

This game will be live on the Cricket Australia website.


Western Australia started off the 2019 Marsh One-Day Cup with consecutive wins over Victoria and Tasmania respectively; both by margins of 100+ runs. Marcus Stoinis and other contributions powered Western Australia to a 125-run win in the tournament opener. D’Arcy Short’s aggressive hundred was followed by their pace attack’s exploits in their 102-run win against Tasmania.

Western Australia will play their first away game on Monday against the New South Wales at the Drummoyne Oval. The NSW Blues played their first two matches at the Allan Border Field and lost in both. They will now hope to gain first points in their home-leg matches. They failed to defend their total of 305/5 against Queensland and were lucky to score at least 173 against South Australia from 27/5.

Weather Condition/Report:

Scattered showers are expected in New South Wales’ first home game of the season. Most of the morning will witness those showers and it is likely to settle down by 12-1 PM local time. If the forecast goes as expected, we might see a game shortened by 5-10 overs.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Drummoyne Oval is likely to be a high-scoring venue given the totals it has recorded in the last two seasons. In the four unaffected matches since 2017, the teams chasing won three times and the batting first side won once that too by five runs while defending 330. The shorter side boundaries at this venue helps in producing big scores and a good record for the team chasing.

Average first innings score: 271 (unaffected List A matches since 2017)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 1

Top Picks:

Josh Phillipe started the season with a 61-run knock. He scored only 16 runs in the 2nd game but covered up his failure with four dismissals behind the stumps. Jack Edwards would be eager to bounce back after the duck in the previous game. Marcus Stoinis could put on a big score if he gets to bat with at least 15 overs remaining in the innings. Jhye Richardson was taken apart in the tournament opener as he ended up conceding 64 runs in five overs. He bounced back with a 3-fer against Tasmania. Sean Abbott will be crucial again as he scored 26 runs after top order’s failure and took two wickets.

Expert Advice:

D’Arcy Short scored 257 runs in one innings during the previous edition but only aggregated 147 runs in the remaining four matches with a fifty. He could be inconsistent at times. Moises Henriques isn’t bowling many overs and his fantasy potential could be restricted to batting. Cameron Bancroft’s role could be restricted to No.6 due to the return of Mitchell Marsh while Ashton Turner taking up No.5 in case of a good start.

Probable Winners:

Western Australia could continue their winning spree in the competition.
