queens vs southaus Match Prediction & Analysis

The Australia Domestic One-Day Cup 2021 has been hit by rains in the last few games but we have also seen good competition so far. The 12th game would see Queensland take on South Australia. Queensland saw their last game against Victoria washed away by rain while South Australia is yet to win a game this season.  They come here after a massive loss against Tasmania in the last game. 

South Australia seems to be suffering from confidence problem and this reflected in the last game where none of their batsmen were able to occupy the crease for decent amount of time. Queensland has always been good at home and they are likely to put up a stiff fight in this game. South Australians have good players in the side and this should make the game interesting. 

Teams Preview

Queensland Preview

The rain washout against Victoria in the last game has increased pressure on Usman Khawaja’s side. They are currently sitting in the second place on the points table and shall have to win this game to keep their hopes alive for a place in the final. South Australia has played poorly so far and Khawaja would sniff chances of a win here. 

Sam Heazlett has looked good opening the batting for the side but skipper Khawaja needs to score runs at the top as he has missed out on both the games. In the middle order the side has good strength with Marnus Labuschagne, Joe Burns and Matthew Renshaw in the side. In Jimmy Peirson and Jack Wildermuth they have good finishers and the batting would like to perform collectively here. 

Their bowlers have done well in the two games that the side has won and they would be looking for early wickets in the game from Michael Neser and Jack Wildermuth. The side has good variety in its bowling attack with Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann and Billy Stanlake in the side and these bowlers would look to exploit South Australia’s batting woes here. 

Queensland Predicted Playing XI:

Usman Khawaja (c), Sam Heazlett, Marnus Labuschagne, Joe Burns, Matt Renshaw, Jimmy Peirson (wk), Jack Wildermuth, Michael Neser, Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann, Billy Stanlake

South Australia Preview

Travis Head seems to have no clue on how to win games this season. In what was another poor show from the side, they went down to Tasmania by 9 wickets in the last game. The side was bowled out for mere 104. With all hopes of making it to the final dashed Head would be looking for a consolatory win in this game. 

Openers Harry Neilson and Jake Weatherald must deliver the goods at the top. They haven’t been consistent so far. In the middle order Travis Head and Alex Carey bring in lot of experience to the table and runs would be expected of them. Callum Ferguson, Jake Lehmann and Cameron Valente have shown sparks down the order and they have to produce their best here. 

Bowling has been a problem area for the side so far and they would need to grab early wickets to create a chance in this game. Daniel Worrall and Wes Agar need to make good use of the new ball. In the middle overs the side would also like to see tight spells from Peter Hatzoglou, Valentine and Travis Head in the game. 

South Australia Predicted Playing XI:

Travis Head (c), Harry Nielsen, Jake Weatherald, Alex Carey (wk), Callum Ferguson, Tom Cooper, Corey Kelly, Cameron Valente, Daniel Worrall, Wes Agar, Peter Hatzoglou

Weather Conditions

It would be clear skies over Brisbane on March 28 and we expect to see a full game after the washouts in the earlier games. The ball would do a lot off the surface and batsmen would have to approach the game with caution. The side that bats first would be targeting a score in the range of 280 runs here.

Venue Details

Allan Border Field, Brisbane is a small ground that has shorter boundaries around the square which offers lots of scoring opportunities to the batsmen. Fast bowlers do get good support from the surface with the new ball. The ball takes turn here spinners have to bowl tight lines given the dimensions here.

Toss: To Bowl

The wickets in the tournament have been friendly towards the bowlers and this has made it a challenge for the batsmen to score runs at the start of the game. There would be movement and pace on the track in the morning and the side winning the toss would like to leverage that by opting to bowl first.

QUEENS vs SOUTHAUS Winning Prediction

It has been a story of struggle for South Australia so far in the season. Apart from their spirited effort with the bat in the first game there hasn’t been much to cheer about for the side so far. They will have to play out of their skins to win here. Queensland seems to have all the bases covered and with a bowling attack that has looked in good form and this would make them favorites in this game.

Queensland to win
