Match Details:

The 2nd Match of the Marsh One Day Cup 2021 will be played between Tasmania and Queensland on 22nd February at Bellerive Oval in Hobart.

The match is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM local time and 4:30 AM IST.

Preview:

Tasmania and Queensland will square off against each other in the 2nd match of the Marsh One Day Cup 2021 on Monday. Tasmania have not won domestic 50 over championships since 2009/10 season and they had a quiet season last year as well, finishing 4th in the group standings. This time around, they will be aiming to make a comeback. Availability of Australia’s Test skipper Tim Paine will strengthen the side for Tasmania, which gives them a good chance to start the tournament with a win.

On the other hand, Queensland had recently beaten Tasmania in a Sheffield Shield game. This will give them immense confidence and their mindset will be positive coming into the 50 over format. They were one of the finalists last year, but got beaten by Western Australia in the finals by 4 wickets. Star performers Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne have got runs for Queensland in the last season and they are expecting similar kinds of performances this year as well.
