Sheffield shield season is intensifying with every match and teams are vying for crucial points. Western Australia are currently sitting at the top of the points table with a good lead and will look to continue their dominance with yet another victory in this match. New South Wales are not having a great tournament so far and are searching for their first victory. They will hope a win against table toppers will be a big boost to their campaign.
New South Wales played just one innings last game and scored just 216/7. Sean Abbott and Jason Sangha made fifties in the last game. Kurtis Patterson (269 runs), Sean Abbott (185 runs), and Moises Henriques (186 runs) have played crucial knocks with the bat for their team so far.

SCG is a good batting wicket with batters having an upper hand in the first 2-3 days of the match. The ball might turn with uneven bounce in the last 2 days of the match. Sydney will have bright and sunny weather with intermittent showers expected.
SCG is one of the iconic test venues in Australia where spinners will play a big role with the pitch aiding them. We expect 350-400 runs in the first 2 innings of the match.
Teams will opt to bat first in this match as the pitch will be good to bat in the first 2 days. Spinners might play a huge role in the last innings of the match.
Western Australia batters have played superbly and posted scores in excess of 400 runs consistently. They have a good pace attack that can rattle any opposition but their big concern would be lack of experienced spinners. New South Wales batting need to play big knocks and help their team post a big total. Nathan Lyon will be a big asset to them in this SCG pitch and he has vast experience of playing in big stages. We expect Western Australia to win this match owing to their all around team.
