VAC vs WAC Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Mar 07, 2022
Victoria suffered a shock defeat in its previous match and is now out of the running for a spot in the Marsh Cup 2022 Finals. It will be playing its last group match against Western Australia. Unlike Victoria, Western Australia certainly has a lot to play for. A win in this match will help it leapfrog a couple of teams in front of it.

VAC vs WAC Team Previews
Victoria has lost to WA in four out of the previous matches it has played and its current form in the tournament does not raise much hope either. Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell are the two big names in this lineup and will attract the most attention. Unfortunately for Victoria, they have not been making too much of an impact in recent matches.
Nic Maddinson, Peter Handscomb, and Fraser McGurk all contribute to this Victorian side being absolutely stacked. The batting is very strong on paper.
Thornton and Merlo are going to be tasked with leading the bowling attack. They will have a lot of support from the all-rounders but we think Victoria's bowling attack is not the strongest and could have difficulties in stopping WA's batting lineup.
Victoria Playing 11
Mackenzie Harvey, Jake Fraser McGurk, Aaron Finch, Nic Maddinson, Glenn Maxwell, Peter Handscomb, Fergus O’Neill, James Pattinson, Henry Thornton, Todd Murphy, Cameron McClure.
Cameron Bancroft, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Ashton Turner, and Josh Philippe are just some of the massive names that will be turning out for WA in this match. This team is easily one of the strongest teams in the entire Marsh Cup and could easily end up dominating the match with the bat.
There is more power and depth in the WA batting lineup for sure.
Tye, Moody, Morris, and Behrendorff are the bowlers in the squad that are likely to start for WA. Once again, we think WA has more of an advantage than might be immediately apparent.
Western Australia Playing 11
Josh Philippe, D'Arcy Short, Shaun Marsh, CT Bancroft, Ashton Turner, Hilton Cartwright, Aaron Hardie, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Matthew Kelly, Jason Behrendorff.
