Sheffield shield 2022 is up and running with the tournament opener between New South Wales and Western Australia promising to be a close contest. Queensland and Tasmania face off each other in the second game of the season. Queensland won the Shield title recently in the 2020-21 season but failed to qualify for the finals in the last season after finishing in the fifth place. Tasmania was unlucky to be missed out on qualification despite the higher points owing the average points per match system last season. Both teams will be looking to kick off their campaign on a good note with a victory in their opening game.
Queensland batting has a very strong core of batting group with the likes of Marnus Labuschagne, Usman Khawaja, Matt Renshaw, and Joe Burns in the playing XI who has represented Australia in the international format. Max Bryant, Jimmy Pierson, and Sam Hazlett have vast experience in first class circuit and will add great strength to their batting line-up.
Mark Steketee and Gurinder Sandhu will be their key pace bowlers leading the attack with the new ball in this match. Mathew Kuhneman, Kane Richardson, Michael Neser, and Xavier Bartett form a strong core of the pace unit and will fight for the remaining pacer`s slot in the XI. Mitchell Swepson will be their lone spinner in the playing XI with Marnus Labuschagne expected to provide him support.
Key players: Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Caleb Jewell.

Brisbane will have a slightly cloudy weather on day 1 with clear skies on days 2 & 3 and we expect some shower in the day 4 of the match. We expect to have a good contest with weather playing very less role on the game.
Allan Border field is a balanced pitch with something in it for both the bowlers and pacers. Pace will play a big role as pacers have claimed 77% of the wickets in the matches played so far. We expect the average scores to be around 350-400 runs in the first innings.
Both teams will look to bowl first if there are cloud cover and overcast conditions on the first day. The pitch will be good for batting on days 2 & 3 and might carack on the final day of the match.
Queensland has a strong team in terms of batting and bowling when compared to Tasmania on paper with better experienced quality players. Tasmania too have a strong playing XI with good, experienced players in the first-class circuit. They have a strong pace unit but relies heavily on the rookie in the spin department. Queensland have a strong top order and quality pace attack complemented by leggie Swepson in the starting XI.
