Sheffield Shield Match 1 Squad Comparison


Defending champions Victoria would like to start with a win as they begin their campaign for the season at their home ground. The side led by new skipper Peter Handscomb has good strength both in batting and bowling department and would like to use it to their advantage. They had won all their games last season barring one and would like to carry on with the same form in the new season. The season opener can always throw surprises and Handscomb wouldn’t want his side to be complacent. With a well-balanced squad available at his disposal, the side would want to make a perfect start to the season.

At the top, the side has got Marcus Harris and opening the batting alongside Aaron Finch and the two make a formidable pair. Nic Maddinson, Handscomb, Will Pucovski and Glenn Maxwell make the middle order very strong for Victoria. It is the experience that these batsmen bring to the line-up that makes them very strong and they will look to start in a grand way this season. James Pattinson and Chris Tremain have good batting abilities and strengthen the batting line-up. In the bowling department Pattinson, Chris Tremain and Scott Boland will look to pick wickets with the new ball. Maxwell adds variety to the bowling attack and shall look to trouble the opponents.

South Australia

Travis Head would like his team to put the setbacks of the last season behind and approach this game with a fresh mind. They played poorly in all the games last season and weren’t able to win any of them. Their batsmen didn’t apply themselves in the game and their bowlers too were wayward in their line and length. The side would need to approach every game in the season positively. Head is leading a young team and he would want his players to rise up to the occasion and put up a good performance in the next game.

Jake Weatherald will need to provide a good start to the side along with his opening partner Alex Carey. It was at the top of the batting line-up that the side fared poorly in the last season. In the middle order, the likes of Head, Jake Lehman and Tom Cooper will need to spend time in the crease and keep the scoreboard ticking going into the game. Their bowling attack needs to deliver this season. Kane Richardson and Wes Agar will need to start well with the new ball. The side would depend on the experience of Adam Zampa to put pressure on the opponents.

Our Prediction for Victoria vs South Australia

Victoria shall win the game

It is the series opener and the defending champions Victoria would take on South Australia in the first game at the Junction Oval, Melbourne. It will be an important game from South Australia’s perspective as the side had failed to win a single game last season and they would be looking to make an impressive start to the new season. Victoria, on the other hand, has one of the strongest squads going into this season having better strength in both departments of the game. The hosts aren’t going to make it any easy for the visitors. It is the first game of the season and it would be interesting to see how the two sides approach this one.

Victoria has a very strong squad going into this game and this will make them overwhelming favourites to win this one.
