VCT vs WAU Dream11 : With a change of name and format, the domestic one day series gets underway in Australia today
With Australia’s domestic season set to commence proceedings starting today, the Marsh One-Day Cup 2019 gets ready to revel us in a two month long sortie with the tournamnet going a massive overhaul for the newest season. The tournamnet has for the first time ever seen its name being changed, reverting from the JLT One-Day Cup to the Marsh One-Day Cup along with a hoard of other changes being incorporated as well.
While the tournamnet has been made more expansive with all the six teams hosting matches at their grounds this season, there has been trifurcation of the matches as well, changing from the traditional singular set of block in which the tournamnet was contested. It’s been broken into three different phases now to make way for the Sheffield Shield in between as well with the first round beginning today to incorporate 12 matches spread across 12 days.
Beginning proceedings in the 50 over tournamnet will be Western Australia Men and Victoria Men with the two sides going at loggerheads in a match which promises to be a scrumptious affair. Both sides are laden with names who have plied their skill set on the world stage, players fully capable of achieving the biggest of targets, imbued with the capability to succeed at the biggest stage of them all.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
One of the trickiest tracks in the country for batting, batsmen have often been caught bereft of ideas of how to rummage past the adverse conditions with the bowlers drubbing this one this wicket. In pristine pace conditions with a nice account of green being left on the surface, the pacers will triumph and reign, seeing the side winning the toss picking out a regulation choice of fielding first.
Probable Playing 11
- Marcus Harris and James Pattinson will not be available for the opening set of fixtures for Victoria with the players partaking in the Ashes series being given a rest by the board.

VCT vs WAU Match Prediction
Given the travesty of this surface and with the bowlers playing a pivotal role on this wicket, today’s clash should swing in Western Australia’s favour. Their pace battery makes for daunting viewing, names who’ll love sending down their rippers today and entrapping Victoria’s bats in an impasse.

VCT vs WAU Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
We have Victoria’s Peter Handscomb come into our side for today’s encounter. Ever since the series Australia played in India, the man with the gloves has been in ravishing form, scoring runs on a consistent basis to become one of the most applies names in the country’s cricketing arena.
VCT vs WAU Dream11 Batsmen
We continue with our selections from Victoria with Aaron Finch and Mackenzie Harvey selected by us as we opt for both the openers from the side. This duo is quissential to the side’s success today, needing to not only see out the new ball but also ensuring that runs keep coming in at a steady rate as they don’t allow the opposition’s pacers to get on top of them.
From Western Australia, we finally pick out our first set of players with a similar duo representing them as well. With some absolutely sensational displays with the bat in the English Blast last month, D’Arcy Short comes into our Dream 11 side with Ashton Tuner who enjoyed an equally jubilant time out in the country.
VCT vs WAU Dream11 All-Rounders
We’ll begin with Victoria first with both Glen Maxwell and Matthew Short coming into our side. These are two players who’ll be handed over a massive responsibility by the side, one which will see them be heavily engaged with the bat and ball, a narrative which should see the duo revel us in a slew of points.
Elsewhere we have gone in with Aston Agar as the only option from Western Australia for today’s match.
VCT vs WAU Dream11 Bowling Order
Given the surface promised to us and the pace friendly conditions set to be dished out our way, we are opting for Western Australia’s Jhye Richardson and Nathan Coulter-Nile, two bowlers who’ll be handed over the new ball to send down in tandem. From the other side, their spearhead, Scoot Boland brings an end to our picks for the match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Peter Handscomb is our captain for this one while Short is being made the vice-captain.
