Toss Info

The ground has not witnessed any games of the Test format so far so it will be difficult to predict the pitch conditions and what the pitch has to offer as the match progresses. It will be good for the team to win the toss and choose to bowl first on this ground to discover more about the pitch and to execute batting plans in the second innings.

Weather Report

The weather forecast predicts a 30-40% chance of precipitation. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the range of 23°C-13°C respectively.

Our Prediction

Judging by the current form in the tournament and skills that have been demonstrated by both teams so far this season, Queensland have definitely an upper hand over the South Australian team. Queensland’s bowling is really good and have delivered some superb performances so far this season. On the other hand, South Australia have a decent batting lineup in the top order which might help Queensland to pick up quick wickets of the opponent’s lower order.

We predict that Queensland will defeat South Australia.
