Isaac Conway scored 52 in the previous game in a tough 200-run chase and he will be key to Waratah CC doing well again. He also scored 211 runs in T20 tournament earlier this month leading his team to title. Along with him, James Seymour was at his best with the bat amassing 241 with a century and a fifty to his name. Seymour scored only 12 runs in the previous game and is expected to make a strong come back.
Madura Weerasinghe picked two wickets in the previous One-Day game. He just continued his form from the T20 competition where he scalped six batsmen at a very good economy. Udara Weerasinghe also accounted for a couple of wickets in the last outing while he picked 7 wickets in the shortest format recently. Apart from them, Tristan Glover has also been consistent with six wickets to his name in the T20 tournament. He went wicketless in the previous game though.
Palmerston batsmen are not in great form and they didn’t have great T20 competition as well. Hamish Martin was consistent though with the scores of 46, 17 and 10. He is also a brilliant bowler and picked six wickets in three matches. Even in the previous One-Day game, he picked a wicket. Alex Bleakely scored 17 runs and picked up three wickets in the last outing. He scored 86 runs in three T20s as well.
Kieran Toner opens the innings but is yet to impress with his batting. However, he seems to be a decent bowler as he picked three wickets in the last game. Cameron Hyde has been their best bowler as he picked three wickets in the previous game too. Apart from that, he also accounted for seven scalps in the T20s earlier in month.

You will have to leave out one of the players due to high credits of top players. We have left Hamish Martin in Team 1. It is always better to go with Waratah CC players as they will score more runs and pick more wickets compared to Palmerston CC.
Waratah Cricket Club is expected to win the match.
