SAU vs QUN Dream11 : South Australia get their campaign underway today as Queensland eye their second straight win
Queensland couldn’t have asked for a more pristine start to the 2019 edition of the Marsh Cup. Putting in a clinical display with the bat, the side ended up dismissing New South Wales in their league opener, a win crucial not only due to the two points but also owing to the opposition it came against.
Making the most of an excellent batting surface, Queensland were quick to ensure that their batsmen were able to compensate for a lopsided performance by the bowlers. Stepping out in pursuit of 306, the side ensured that meaningful partnerships were struck across the batting order, always staying on top of the run chase with equal contributions from all of their unit.
It saw them peel down the target at hand with 4 wickets and two overs to spare, a performance they’ll be looking to resonate when they clash heads against South Australia who are stepping out for their first match. Up against a daunting batting order, South Africa will be relying on their bowling order, one lined up with international names to help take them past the finishing line and begin their season with a win to their name.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
We are handed over a terrific track in the previous track with over 600 runs being scored with the side chasing finding it extremely easy to peel down the 300 excess run target. Conditions promise to be the same today with the surface only getting better as the match transpires with the first part of the clash promising immense deviation for the pacers before the wicket settles down.
A chasing wicket, the side winning the toss will be looking to come out and field first today.

SAU vs QUN Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
One of the most imperious and impressive bats across Australia’s cricketing arena in the course of the past year, South Australia’s Alex Carey was always going to be an instant pick for us in this match. He’s been opening his arms to find the fence with will, taking on the bowlers with consummate ease and promises to emanate the same display today as well.
SAU vs QUN Dream11 Batsmen
After a tenacity filled display with the bat, one that saw them begin life in the league in scintillating fashion, it was only fair for us to heavily line up our batting order with a slew of names from Queensland. We begin with their opener, Sam Heazlett after his 70 runs in 57 balls laid down the platform of his side’s win.
He’s accompanied by Marcus Labuschagne, Australia’s most hot property at the moment who showed he can score freely across all formats. Following up an extremely impressive Ashes series, it took him now time to adjust to white ball cricket as he scored 67 sensational runs, one which were held in reverence owing to the way he kept rotating strike and kept the scoreboard ticking.
Joe Burns comes in as well with his unbeaten 54 seeing him pile on an 83 run stand for the fifth wicket to guide his side out of a sticky position of 199-5 whilst from the opposition we have opted for the duo of Callum Ferguson after his displays in the English Blast and captain Jake Lehman.
SAU vs QUN Dream11 All-Rounders
With no one from Queensland playing in this facet in the previous match, we have opted for the lone pick of Tom Cooper from South Australia. His ability to encapsulate his enigmatic skill set with both the bat and bag promises to be a fruitful one today with him bound to be a steady source of points for us.
SAU vs QUN Dream11 Bowling Order
Queensland’s man of the match from the previous clash, Jack Wildermuth comes into our side. While his wicket to wicket bowling saw him keep things quiet on the bowling front, he is truly picked up by us in the wake of his incredible batting display. His 51 run knock ensured his side were able to side themselves on the end of consummate success, making him an instant pick alongside Billy Stanlake who got the two wickets.
Elsewhere from the opposition we have two names who have impressed immensely on both the international level and across the leagues they have plied their skill set in recently, making pacer Kane Richardson and spinner Adam Zampa our picks for today.
