After a tiring summer and regular cricket of 4 months for Australian cricketers, the domestic season is underway known as Marsh Cup, and its final is going to take place on 26th November 2019. The tournament has already kicked off on 21st September and the teams are tussling out to be on the top in the points table.
Injuries are a part of sports and in cricket day on and off many cricketers get injured but some times injuries can act as career-ending ones and the same case was witnessed in an encounter in Marsh Cup 2019-20 when Queensland met South Australia in an encounter but there was no serious tear that took place on the field. It looked a bit funny incident that happened when South Australia took on the field against Queensland in the 2nd part of the match. The incident could have been a fatal blow for the strike bowler Wes Agar.
Nasty fall of South Australia bowler Wes Agar
Wes Agar took the ball in the first over against Queensland, and when he was going to bowl the 2nd ball of his over he slipped in a horrendous manner next to the umpire, and it looked like Agar’s ankle met with a serious injury. The umpire and the batsmen on the non-striking end were seen asking Agar whether he is alright or not.

South Australia batsmen were bowled out for 226 in 48.5 overs with Tom Cooper (62) being the only batsman in the team to register a half-century in the match for his team. Queensland went past the target in 35.5 overs with the successive fifties of Sam Heazlett, Matt Renshaw and Joe Burns. It looked like an easy encounter for Queensland. Billy Stanlake was awarded the “Man of the Match” for registering an amazing bowling figure of 10-0-38-3.
Queensland are leading the table with 8 points in 2 matches. South Australia are currently at the bottom of the table after facing defeat against the tournament toppers in their opening match. They will look to taste their first win in the Marsh Cup 2019 in their upcoming fixture against Tasmania on 29th September 2019 whereas Queensland will play their next game against Victoria on the same date.
