TAS VS WAU Dream11 : Tasmanian Tigers eye recovery after enduring a shambolic collapse in the previous match.
Tasmanian Tigers have been the talk of the Marsh Cup after the first round of fixture with their performance being the biggest takeaway after the opening set of exchanges. Unfortunately for the side though, it’s been a burning issue for all the wrong reasons with the outfit enduring one of the biggest and most chastening collapses of the year, falling to a throwing defeat from an asserted winning stage.
Needing just five runs to win with 11 overs to spare and 5 wickets in hand, the side managed to throw away the encounter, falling apart in horrid fashion as they went onto lose by the solitary run in pursuit of 186. It was a batting display which has reverberated across the cricketing fraternity, seeing the side come under massive flak for failing to show composure at a stage where a defeat was the least likely outcome for them.
Not taking on Western Australia today, the side will be looking to forget a horrendous defeat at the earliest as they look to put on their first points. Thing aren’t going to get any better for them though with the side clashing heads against a aide who cantered their way to a momentous 125 run win against Victoria, a performance filled with exuberance and exemplary performances.
Betting first and piling on a gigantic total of 386, the side’s bowlers complimented their bowlers to perfection to send them packing for 261 inside 40 overs. It not only saw them garner an extremely important opening win but also buoyed the side for the remainder of the season, a performance they’ll be looking to emanate come this clash as well.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A tricky surface to bat on, the previous clash saw the pacers flourish given the covering of grass left on this track. Today looks to be the same with the side winning the toss opting to field first and extract the immense assistance on offer to the faster bowlers.
Anything around 250 will be a respectable total, one enough to make things jittery for the side chasing.

TAS VS WAU Match Prediction
It’s not the discourse which both the sides played out in their league opener but the overall composition of their sides as well which favour Western Australia for today’s match. Not only is their bowling order sensational but the batsmen are laden with a sublime quality to pile on runs under any circumstances, something which should see them cruise to a win today.

TAS VS WAU Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Both the wicket-keepers from Western Australia line up our batting order for today’s imminent clash. We are making opener Josh Philippe our first pick after his astute knock of 61 runs in 43 knocks, an innings which saw him make the most of the powerplay overs to lay down the perfect carpet for his side’s ensuing bats.
With 78 runs, Cameron Bancroft comes into our side as well while from the opposition we are picking up Ben McDermott after the opener top scored with 78 runs for his side, an innings which kept them in the chase despite their entire batting order being rattled.
TAS VS WAU Dream11 Batsmen
After you have piled on a hefty score of 386 previously, it was only fair of us to begin our picks over here with names from Western Australia. D’Arcy Short and Ashton Turner come in from the side with Turner’s 52 runs seeing him being involved in a pivotal 96 run stand for the third wicket.
George Bailey becomes our only selection from Tasmanian Tigers for this match.
TAS VS WAU Dream11 All-Rounders
After 101 runs in 58 balls, we had to make Marcus Stoinis an instant selection over here given the fact that he is given a good amount of overs with the ball as well by Western Australia. An all-rounder we scour for when building out our Dream 11 side, he’s the perfect player to indulge in along with Ashton Agar whose 27 runs came with the 3 wickets as well for his side.

Having already picked out two bowling options from Western Australia in the previous slot, only Nathan Coulter-Nile comes in from the side over here with his two wickets in the last match. Elsewhere, although Tasmanian Tigers were adverse with the bat, their bowling display didn’t leave anything to be yearned, making their frontline pacer Jackson Bird and Nathan Ellis our pick for today’s match.
