Western Australia will host South Australia in the 5th match of the Sheffield Shield 2021-22 which will start from Wednesday. Both teams met previously last month where the match was ended in a disappointing draw. Western Australia will be pretty disappointed with the way things have gone as they lost to Tasmania in their previous match by 3 wickets.
It’s a long tournament and they need to take one game at a time in order to be successful in the longest format. South Australia, on the other hand, has played 2 matches so far and both their matches ended in a draw. They took 1st innings lead in both the matches which is a good sign for them before heading into this match. They look forward to carrying the same into this match.
