Will Victoria stop on-song Queensland?
The defending Champions Victoria, after losing the first match of the season have bounced back with an inspirational win against Tasmania. Victoria reduced Tasmania from 172/5 to 184/10 in space of 3 overs. On the other hand, Queensland has come up with back to back victories in the first two games of the season where they registered 4 & 7 wickets victories respectively. Now it will be fascinating to see whether Victoria ride on the inspirational win or Queensland continues their good work.
Both sides are likely to stick with their winning combination.
This is the first match being played at Melbourne this year JLT One Day Cup. So expect a fresh surface for the contest where both bat and ball have its say. The forecast is for a cloudy day in Melbourne on Sunday which might aid pacers more.
One of Australia’s Ashes hero seems to have translated his red-ball form into the white ball game. He has come up with a half-century in the sides first game of the season and in the second looked busy for his decent start. His PPM of 56.5 and his present form makes him a must-have.
The Queensland opener has come up with back to back victories in the first two games. His good form is also one of the reasons for the side’s unbeaten run in the series. His PPM of 83.5 in the tournament and his career PPM of 66 in the format make him a must-have in the Dream11 cricket team.
After a poor showing in the World Cup 2019, Maxwell has found some form in the T20 Blast which he is continuing in the JLT One Day Cup. This tournament also holds the key for his stay in the national side after what happened this year in the format. His all-round show yielded him PPM of 55.5 which makes him a worthy pick in today’s game.
The lanky pacer from Queensland has come up with two crucial spells in the opening two games where he came up with 5 wickets at a 4.35 economy. His PPM of 73.5 make him a must-have bowler in the Dream11 cricket team.
He may not have continued his good form from the first match into the second, but his average PPM of 66 in the tournament and the format make him a big bet to consider in today’s game. Adding to it, he also has a PPM of 73.5 in the last 5 games in this format.
