Sheffield Shield Match 12 Squad Comparison


The defending champions already seem to be under a lot of pressure in this year’s tournament. Into their fourth game, Peter Handscomb’s side has already suffered two losses and seen their opening game ending in a draw. In the last game against Tasmania, the side batted poorly to finish with a six-wicket loss and currently their position on the points table looks bad. Under pressure, the side will need to deliver the goods as they play in their home ground. Queensland hasn’t done badly so far in the season and this would put a lot of pressure on the team.

The new opening pair of Marcus Harris and Travis Dean didn’t offer the kind of start the side would have liked to see and they will need to do well in the next game. The middle-order has good players in Will Pucovski, Nic Maddinson and Handscob and these players will need to convert their starts into big scores, unlike the two previous games. With Sam Harper and Matthew Short in the side, the batting line-up has good depth. Peter Siddle and Chris Tremain did well with the ball in the last game.  Scott Boland also bowled with a lot of heart but they didn’t have the runs on the board to defend. Going into this game the side would also want to see the same from Jon Holland.


The last game against Western Australia ended in a draw for Usman Khawaja’s side. On a dull wicket, both the sides played safe and there was never a scope of result in the game. But Khawaja would be happy with the way his side batted in the game though he would have wanted to see his bowlers bowl tighter lines in the game and win it. The side has looked good and they won the second game against South Australia after starting with a loss against New South Wales. Playing Victoria in the latter’s home ground would be a challenge and the skipper would want to see the best performance from his team.

Openers Joe Burns and Bryce Street are in good form and Street scored a great hundred in the last game. Usman Khawaja is failing to convert his starts which he shall look to do in the next game. In the middle order, the side has quality players win Marnus Labuschagne, Charlie Hemphrey and Jack Wildermuth who looked in good form in the last game. Jimmy Peirson also adds strength to the batting for the side. In the bowling department Cameron Gannon is in good form and so is Xavier Bartlett. With Michael Meser and Labuschagne among the ranks, the bowling attack will look to do well in the game.

Our Prediction for Victoria vs Queenaland

Victoria shall win the game

It is the 12th game of the Sheffield Shield 2019-20 and Victoria would be taking on Queensland at their home ground MCG. The hosts who are also the defending champions have had a bad season so far with two consecutive losses and a drawn game and are under serious pressure to win this one. Queensland, on the other hand, comes into this game after drawing their previous one. With the sides well-matched on paper it should be a good game of cricket on a lively track at the MCG.

Victoria is playing at home and has a better batting line-up and going into this game they would start as favorites
