VCT vs WAU Dream11 : Top of the table awaits Western Australia today with another win to their name.
Back for its second round, the new format of the Marsh One-Day Cup sees Western Australia return back to action after enjoying an extremely fruitful time in the first round of matches. The side thrived to emerge as real contenders for the glistening trophy, refrained from occupying top spot by the barest margins of net run-rate, keeping them in second place with the three wins from four matches.
The side entered the tournamnet as one of the most well rounded, complete and astute sides and the they have fulfilled every bit of expectations accorded from them. After winning three matches in succession though, the side were finally dismissed for the first time right before the tournament took a hiatus, a sordid and stinker performance which the side will be looking to overturn come today.
In what was a dismay filled and completely uncharacteristic display from the side, a performance not associated with them till now, the side were decimated by NSW Blues who went onto win by 77 runs. Allowing NSW Blues to pile on a huge 348 while batting first, Western Australia were sent packing for 271, seeing the side falter to expose the first chunks of weaknesses in the side.
It’s something which Victoria will be looking to exploit come today’s clash with the side seeing their two losses in the tournamnet from four matches include a defeat to western Australia previously. They did manage to make amends for that defeat by winning the two matches proceeding that with their last outing seeing the side finally stop being underachievers and unlock their true potential.
Chasing down a 305 run target which looked set to perturb them, the side couldn’t have cruised to a more comfortable win as they ended up cantering to a 9 wicket triumph. They completely thumped the oppositions’ bowlers, mincing and mauling them as they marred Queensland Bulls to win with over 5 overs to spare.
