NSW vs QSL Match & Analysis

The competition to finish in the top-2 of the Sheffield Shield Group stage is tight and there are just two points separating the top-3 teams. Two of those, teams, New South Wales and Queensland are going to be playing against each other in this match.

New South Wales was bowled out for 32 in its previous match and cannot afford another slip-up. Queensland has been in good recent form but the only match that it has lost this season has been to New South Wales.

Quite a few of the leading Australian players have left for India for the IPL and so the teams are going to need to fill some important places in their lineups.

New South Wales vs Queensland Sheffield Shield 2021 is going to be played at North Dalton Park, Wollongong starting on the 3rd of April 2021.

NSW vs QSL Team Previews

New South Wales

The team that played for New South Wales against Tasmania did not have David Warner or Steve Smith and so the same team may end up taking the field. If anything, they may actually have Josh Hazelwood available now that he has pulled out of t5he upcoming IPL.

Mitchell Starc was not a part of the auction at all and so he is going to be available too. This means that New South Wales could have Hazelwood, Starc, and Lyon leading their bowling attack.

This is often rated as one of the best test attacks in the world and so New South Wales definitely has a huge advantage over Queensland here. Copeland and Conway are also very good bowlers and should be able to keep the pressure on the batsmen.

The batting is a bit of a problem. Being bowled out for 32 is going to leave a scar. Daniel Hughes, Kurtis Patterson, Nick Larkin, Daniel Solway, and Jason Sangha make up the top-order with Peter Nevill as the wicketkeeper.

This is definitely not the strongest attack and Queensland would sense a few vulnerabilities to expose.

Queensland has had to suffer through two matches that were essentially completely rained out and so it would be keen to get back on the park. The previous match where some cricket was actually possible was also a draw in which plenty of runs were scored.

Playing against Western Australia, Queensland was able to score 600 in the only inning that it batted. Bryce Street, Marnus Labuschagne, Matt Renshaw, Jimmy Pierson, and Jake Wildermuth all scored a lot of runs.

This is exactly the opposite of what the New South Wales batsmen did in their previous match and so we think the mood in the Queensland batting unit is definitely going to be more upbeat. Make no mistake, though, scoring these sorts of runs against the New South Wales batting lineup is going to be very difficult.

The real challenge, though, for Queensland is going to be getting 20 wickets in the match. Xavier Bartlett, Jack Wildermuth, Mark Steketee, Brendan Doggett, and Matthew Kuhnemann formed the bowling unit in the previous match.

This is not a bad bunch of players by any means but it does not have the skill or talent that is present in the New South Wales lineup.

NSW vs QSL Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. We think this should be seen as a significant advantage as the pitch might start to break up significantly on days 4 and 5.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather forecast for the first couple of days is pretty good but the rain starts to make regular appearances from day 3 onward. We could have a lot of time lost in this match. The pitch is expected to be flat to begin with and then helpful for the spinners.

New South Wales is the home side in this contest and it needs a win. Maybe this could encourage the groundsman to leave a bit of grass on the surface to give the bowlers some more help than usual.

NSW vs QSL Betting Tips

New South Wales and Queensland are the two best teams of the Sheffield Shield. For this match, though, New South Wales is without some of its batting big-guns. The bowling attack is going to be led by Test regulars and has the potential to run through Queensland. The contest is essentially between the New South Wales bowling and the Queensland batting.

We think Queensland will be able to pull off a win here if the weather permits.

Bet on Queensland to win.
