In the final of the 2020/21 edition of the Sheffield Shield, Queensland will cross paths with New South Wales. Both the sides have had pretty similar campaigns. They both have won 3 games and have drawn 3 games. What ultimately created the difference between these teams is the number of defeats.

Queensland lost only once in this season’s competition, which handed them the first place in the points table, with 33.17 points to their name. On the other hand, New South Wales lost two games and they finished at the second place with 31.51 points. That being said, none of it will matter, as in the all-important final, it will boil down to application and executions of plans.
