The final round of Sheffield Shield 2021 matches are going to be played and while there are a few teams that would be fighting for a place in the finals, Victoria and South Australia are not among them. Both of these teams sit right at the bottom of the league table and are basically playing for pride.
While Victoria has won one match in the series so far, South Australia has not won any.
Matches between two evenly-matched teams can be quite exciting and that is what we are hoping for in this contest.
Victoria vs South Australia Sheffield Shield 2021 is going to be played at the Junction Oval, Melbourne starting on the 3rd of April 2021.
To pinpoint an area in which Victoria has been poor in recent matches is difficult. It is not because they have managed to perform to a very high level but it is because they are consistently playing so poorly.
Take their previous match against Western Australia. The leading bowler of the side, James Pattinson did not pick up a single wicket and none of the batsmen were able to get past 50 in either inning.
There is just no way you are going to win matches with performances like these. Will Sutherland managed to pick up four wickets in the first inning but he did not have the support needed.
The same problems are going to haunt Victoria in this match as well. Its bowling has been inconsistent at best while the batting has underperformed in the entire tournament. A couple of senior batsmen like Peter Handscomb, Marcus Harris, and Nic Maddinson need to get some big scores to their name.
We do think the Victorian bowling attack is going to be good enough to put pressure on the opposition if they have the runs on the board.
Marcus Harris, Travis Dean, Nic Maddinson, Peter Handscomb, Sam Harper, Will Sutherland, Mitchell Perry, Scott Boland, Jon Holland, T Murphy, James Seymour.
A very strong batting performance from South Australia in their previous completed match did not end up getting them the result that they needed. South Australia needed a result and it made some bold declarations against New South Wales but eventually did not have the bowling to get the win.
However, runs for almost all of their batsmen would put them in a good frame of mind before this contest. Jake Weatherald, Alex Carey, Travis Head, Harry Nielsen, and Jake Lehmann all got runs.
In current form, we would say the batting lineup of South Australia is better than that of Victoria.
Unfortunately, the weakest bowling attack in the tournament keeps tripping up South Australia. Daniell Worrall, Chadd Sayers, David Grant, and Joe Medew-Ewen are not really going to give any of the opposition batsmen any sleepless nights.
Out of these, Chad Sayers is the one bowler that could make a big impact on proceedings if he gets favorable conditions to bowl in.
Jake Weatherald, Henry Hunt, Liam Scott, TM Head, Alex Carey, Harry Nielsen, Jake Lehmann, Chadd Sayers, Daniel Worrall, David Grant, Sam Kerber.
The toss is going to be pretty important and we think the team that bats first is going to have a serious advantage. Expect the winning captain to opt to bat first in this match.

The weather forecast for Melbourne is very good and we should have no trouble with the rain. As far as the pitch goes, the junction oval is always a bit on the slower side and tends to help the spinners.
The batting lineup of both teams is going to be tested for sure. We think a score of around 300-350 batting first is going to be pretty competitive batting first and the conditions are only going to deteriorate further as time goes on.
There is not too much to choose between the two teams in terms of batting. South Australia has a better batting lineup in its current form but that can change quickly. We give more importance to the bowling superiority of Victoria in this contest and think it has a good chance of ending up with a win.
Bet on Victoria to win.
