South Australia will be up against Queensland in the third match of the Sheffield Shield 2021/22. South Australia took a first-innings lead in their opening game against Western Australia, where the match ended in a disappointing draw. Centuries from Jake Carder and skipper Travis Head put them in a commanding position. On their turf, they will be much stronger and will be hopeful of doing well in this match.

Queensland will be playing their second away fixture. They had drawn with Tasmania in their first game. Their bowlers weren’t at their usual best and didn’t pick wickets in the first innings and conceded 500 runs. In reply, they scored 355 runs for the loss of 5 wickets and declared their innings. The match ended in a draw, and they got all-important 2.43 points.
