Both teams have plenty of firepower in their batting lineups. Cameron Green, highest run getter of the tournament last year will spearhead Western Australia’s batting department with captain, Shaun Marsh. Meanwhile, the ever-consistent Travis Head and Alex Carey will lead the charge for South Australia.
Hilton Cartwright is a must have in your Dream11 Teams, given his contributions with both bat and ball in the opening two fixtures. He is currently the fifth highest run getter of the tournament, having scored 220 runs at an average of 73.33. Also, he has managed to pick up five wickets so far, all of them coming in the loss against Tasmania. Cartwright’s performance this season:
Shaun Marsh, captain of Western Australia has also been in good form this tournament. He is the fourth highest run-getter of the series, having scored 228 runs in two matches at an average of 57. He scored a knock of 118 runs in the first match against South Australia, and smashed a half century in the second game against Tasmania.
Western Australia will be without the likes of Josh Inglis, Marcus Stoinis and Mitchell Marsh who have travelled with the Australian squad for the ICC T20 World Cup in UAE. Meanwhile, Jason Behrendorff has also not competed in any of the two previous games for WAU and remains a doubt for the upcoming fixture.
