Match Details:

The 16th Match of the Sheffield Shield 2020-21 will be played between South Australia and New South Wales which is starting from 6th March at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.

The match is scheduled to start at 10:30 AM local time and 5:30 AM IST.

Preview:

South Australia will take on New South Wales in the 16th match of the Sheffield Shield 2020-21, starting from Saturday. South Australia managed to draw their previous game against Western Australia, They will consider themselves unlucky as they only picked up 9 wickets in the 4th innings of the match. Their chances of qualifying for the finals are way too less since they are placed at the bottom of the table with 7.51 points. So far, they have played 5 matches and have lost 3 of them. They are still seeking their first win in this tournament and will be hoping to do their best with 3 matches to go.

On the other hand, New South Wales has announced a very strong squad, which includes David Warner and Mitchell Starc. They, however, are definitely going to miss the services of star batsman Steven Smith. New South Wales managed to draw their previous match against Victoria but took an important lead in the first innings. With 2 wins, one loss, and a draw, currently, they are placed second in the standings with 21.07 points. Both the sides have got some seriously talented cricketers in their line-up and it will be interesting who will finish on top.
