A win determines fate of two even teams
South Australia and Tasmania are more or less at a similar situation at this midpoint in the tournament. Apart from a victory against New South Wales who are at the bottom of the table, South Australia hasn’t won anything in the season. On the other hand, apart from Sunday’s victory against the same South Australia, Tasmania also hasn’t won any other match. Now, still with 3 matches to play, the second game between these sides become crucial as a win takes the better team close to finishing in Top 4.
Both the sides are in for few changes after what happened in the season so far.
The surface in South Australia hasn’t been easy for batting as it slowed down in both innings as the games progressed. So expect another similar kind of surface.
He may be yet to come up with his best in the tournament but leading up he has been in brilliant form in the T20 Blast, as well as in the World Cup Prior to that. His PPM of 45 in the format and PPM of 59 in the last 5 matches make him a worthy pick.
The Tasmanian All-rounder has starred the season on a decent note where he is the choicest pick of the bowlers for the side. His PPM of 71 on the tour and 70 in the last 5 games make him a preferred option in the Dream11 cricket team.
He may have had only one decent start in his first game of the season but he has been in some form over the past year or so which yielded him a spot in the Ashes. He has a PPM of 100 in the last 5 matches in the format which makes him a must-have.
