This game is scheduled to start at 05:30 AM IST (10:30 AM local time) (1:00 AM UTC).
Western Australia have got a great start in their 2020/21 Sheffield Shield campaign. They started their season out with a thumping 205-run win against South Australia. After that, they had to settle for a draw against a strong New South Wales outfit.
With momentum on their side, they will now face the threat of Tasmania. Tim Paine’s side had a nightmarish start to their campaign, with an innings plus 59 runs defeat against Queensland. However, they showed great character in their last game against South Australia. Though the game ended as a draw, Tasmania were by far the dominating force.
