It is the last league game of the Marsh One-Day Cup 2022-23, and Queensland will be up against New South Wales at their home. It will be a prestige battle as both teams look to avoid the disgrace of finishing at the bottom of the table. Queensland lost to Victoria in their last game, while New South Wales comes here with a win against Tasmania.  

Queensland miss four of their best players who are with the national side. This void was felt in the last game and they lost by a big margin underperforming with the bat and the ball. New South Wales shall feel confident after their big win in the last game. As both sides aim to avoid a last-place finish, we shall see a good contest.  

Queensland Preview

Jimmy Peirson is leading the team in Usman Khawaja's absence, and the side comes here with a big loss against Victoria. Their bowling attack looked toothless in the last game as they went down by 9 wickets. They lack bench strength, making things difficult for the team in this contest.  

Sam Heazlett scored a hundred in the last game and will need to set up a big partnership with Joe Burns. Matthew Renshaw and Marnus Labuschagne’s absence in the middle order is a huge void, and the side will need runs from Max Bryant, Jack Clayton, and Sam Truloff. Jimmy Peirson, Will Prestwidge, and James Bazley shall have to score down the order.  

Mark Steketee and Will Prestwidge will have a tough job and need to grab early wickets to put New South Wales under pressure. James Bazley and Blake Edwards must bowl in the right areas and grab wickets after failing in the last game. Jack Sinfield will need to deliver in the role of a fifth bowler in this game. 

Queensland Predicted Playing XI:

Jimmy Peirson (c & wk), Sam Heazlett, Joe Burns, Sam Truloff, Jack Clayton, Max Bryant, James Bazley, Will Prestwidge, Mark Steketee, Jack Sinfield, Blake Edwards

New South Wales Preview

Kurtis Patterson’s side had a good outing in the last game against Tasmania. They won the game by 102 runs, their second win of the season. Things haven’t worked for the side as they sit at the bottom of the points table. A win here will help them avoid the agony of finishing at the bottom of the points table. Patterson would want his players to deliver their best and finish the season with a win.  

Daniel Hughes has been the highest scorer this season and made a hundred in the last game. He will like to offer a good start along with Matthew Gilkes. Patterson must anchor the innings in the middle order and build partnerships with Oliver Davies and Moises Henriques. They will also need contributions from Hayden Kerr and Daniel Sams down the order.  

Sean Abbott and Ben Dwarshuis bowled well in the last game, and this will make them confident in this game. They must strike with the new ball, as the Queensland batters have also been in poor form. Daniel Sams, Chris Green, and Adam Zampa are experienced bowlers who must do well. Hayden Kerr must deliver in the supporting role.

New South Wales Predicted Playing XI:

Kurtis Patterson (c), Daniel Hughes, Matthew Gilkes (wk), Oliver Davies, Moises Henriques, Hayden Kerr, Daniel Sams, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Chris Green, Adam Zampa

Weather Conditions

Weatherman predicts overcast skies for Brisbane on February 26. The ball would do a lot on the surface, and batsmen would have to play carefully and focus on accumulating runs. The side batting first in this game shall be happy to have 280 on the board. 

Venue Details

The Gabba, Brisbane, is a good venue. The smaller size of the venue offers plenty of run-scoring opportunities for the batsmen. Fast bowlers get assistance from the surface in the early overs of the game with the new ball. The ball takes a turn here, but the spinners must be on their toes to do well.

Toss: To Bowl

The wicket here has been a tricky one to bat on in the first innings, as the ball does a bit in the air and creates lots of wicket-taking opportunities. We have seen mediocre scores at this venue in the last few games. Thus we believe the side that wins the toss would be opting to bowl here in this game.

Queensland is playing a weak team, with most of their key players with the national side. The bowling attack lacks experience, a major problem heading into this game. New South Wales comes into this game with a big win. They have a strong batting line-up and quality in their bowling attack. It will put them ahead of Queensland.
