Western Australia vs South Australia One-Day Cup Final Tips


Western Australia are the favourites to win the One-Day Cup after a superb campaign in which they have brushed all before them aside.

South Australia were the best of the rest across the One-Day Cup campaign, but they will have to take their entire game up another level if they are to upset the favourites in this one. 

  • WA have won all seven of their matches (One-Day Cup)
  • WA finished 12 points above SA in the table (One-Day Cup)
  • SA won four of their seven games (L3) (One-Day Cup)
  • SA finished with a net run rate of +0.141 (One-Day Cup)

Head to Head


The two sides last met in the One-Day Cup in mid-February, with WA hammering their opponents in a win by seven wickets with 70 deliveries to spare. 

Western Australia Form 


Western Australia have been exceptionally good this season, winning all seven of their matches and finishing at the top of the table. The 30 points they have picked up gave them a healthy buffer coming into this game, finishing 12 clear of SA in second. 

Their last game really tested their resolve as they were given a revised target of 190 to win after restricting Tasmania to 285/6. Josh Philippe (85) starred with the bat in a performance that ultimately secured WA's 100% record in the group-stages. 

Now, they come into the final looking to make it eight wins in as man games as they try to cap off a perfect season in the One-Day Cup by lifting the trophy this week. 

South Australia Form 


South Australia were good across their One-Day Cup campaign as they managed to finish with a positive record in what has been a tight battle away from the top-spot. The difference between SA in second and Tasmania at the bottom was just eight point, with three other teams crammed between the two. 

SA were able to secure their place in the final with an impressive eight wicket win over Victoria in a match that SA dominated. Bowling first, SA skittled Victoria for just 136 as Nathan McAndrew returned figures of 3/22. With the bat, Henry Hunt (63) top scored as SA cantered to their target with eight wickets and 24 overs to spare. 

While SA come into this one on the back of a huge win, they will have to be at their very best to beat their unbeaten opponents. Whether they start with bat or ball in hand, they need to ensure they do not allow the occasion to get the better of them. After all, WA are the big favourites, meaning there is more pressure on them. 

Verdict

I am backing WA to extend their 100% record and lift the One-Day Cup. They have been the best team in the competition this year and will likely finish off their season with a win. Josh Philippe was in fine form in their last One-Day Cup match and I am backing him to star with the bat once again.
