Marsh Cup 2021 schedule and fixtures: The SportsRush present for you full list of fixtures of the upcoming season of Marsh Cup.
The 52nd season of Australia’s One-Day Domestic Cup commonly known as the Marsh Cup will commence from February 15 in Sydney. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming season will be a truncated one with each team playing only five matches before the final match.
New South Wales and Victoria, two teams which had finished at the bottom of the points table respectively last season, will lock horns in the first match on Monday at the North Sydney Oval.
Barring a couple of matches this month, most of Marsh Cup 2020-21 will be played in March and April allowing players to take part in Sheffield Shield simultaneously.
Six teams taking part in the tournament will play matches as per home and away format. However, some teams will play less home matches as compared to others due to odd number of matches and a potential travel restriction due to the global pandemic.

The fact that Cricket Australia have rescheduled the tournament to ensure that domestic players have something to look forward to in testing times is in itself commendable.
