  • Queensland are unbeaten in their last two (W1, D1) (Sheffield Shield)

Head To Head


The last time the two sides met in the Sheffield Shield, Western Australia ran out winners by three wickets. It was an incredibly tight battle between the sides, with neither able to score more than 250 runs in any of their innings. 

Queensland Form 


Queensland are one of the few sides putting up a fight in the Sheffield Shield this season, with their battle to catch up with their next opponents at the top an enthralling one. 

After five matches, Queensland have won twice, drawn twice and lost once, with the 20 points they have picked up meaning they are 11 short of their next opponents at the top. 

Their last match ended in frustration as they were held by South Australia. Batting first, SA put on 240 all out as Xavier Bartlett starred for Queensland with 4/64. With the bat, Queensland put on a show as they notched 342 all out as Joe Burns returned a score of 85. With Queensland in the hunt, they were frustrated as SA battled to 246/3 to see the two sides draw. 

This was a huge chance for Queensland to close the gap on themselves and WA, but they failed to pick up maximum points. 

Western Australia Form 


Western Australia have been excellent this season and they are the only side that are still unbeaten after five games. In this time, they have won four matches and drawn once, with this seeing them onto 31 points, leading their next opponents by 11. 

WA's last game ended in a powerful 133 run win over New South Wales. WA went in to bat first and scored a competitive 233, with their bowlers then skittling NSW for just 93. Trying to accelerate in the game, WA were bowled out for just 127 but, chasing a target of 268 was always a big ask for NSW, with the side ultimately falling short by 133 runs. 

Now, WA will target their fifth win in six games in the tournament as they look to extend their sizeable lead at the top of the table.
