Queensland continued their winning streak in the Marsh One-Day Cup as they registered their 3rd successive win by defeating Victoria on Sunday. In their first away game of the season, Queensland posted 322/9 in their 50 overs riding on the big opening partnership. Skipper Usman Khawaja (138) and Sam Heazlett (88) added 185 in only 27.4 overs which set up the game for the visitors.
The Queensland team scored 84/8 in the last 15 overs despite having a strong line-up. However, that didn’t cost them at any point as Victoria collapsed to 37/5 by 14th over. If not for the contributions from Will Sutherland (66) and Aaron Finch (46), the losing margin of Victoria would be more than 154 runs. They started the season with a 125-run defeat against Western Australia and sneaked in a 1-run win over Tasmania.
A sunny day is expected to be seen at the Junction Oval on Tuesday. The skies are expected to be clear throughout the match duration.
Junction Oval had witnessed totals around 260 in the previous edition and chasing side doing equally good. Queensland posted 322/9 on Sunday which was followed by Victoria’s top-order collapse. The pitch looked good for 300 runs in each innings but some poor shot selection costed the home side. We could witness 280+ totals in the 2nd game in three days at the Junction Oval.
