The 7th match of the Marsh One Day Cup between Southern Australia and Tasmania will be played at the Junction Oval in Melbourne, on 12th March, Friday.
This match will start at 04:30 AM IST and 09:30 AM local time.
Southern Australia are taking on Tasmania in the next fixture of the Marsh One Day Cup 2021. It has not been the best start for Southern Australia as they lost both of their first two games. It was a massive effort by the batting group in the first game, but they could not cross the line. The first defeat was followed by a complete one man show from Alex Carey against New South Wales, which was not enough either to get them their first win. They defeated Tasmania in their last meeting in 2019 where Travis Head and Alex Carey were the stars. However, they are playing this fixture at a neutral venue. and have lost all the previous four games played at a neutral venue against Tasmania.
On the other side, Tasmania registered their first win two days prior to this game. They defeated Victoria convincingly as they chased the target with 34 balls to spare. They will enjoy the advantage of having played one game at this venue this week. They would know the surface much better than the opposition. With such a fierce bowling attack which includes Peter Siddle, Jackson Bird and Nathan Ellis, Tasmania is a team to beat in this competition. However, after their first win of the season, they would like to continue their momentum and grab their second win of the season.
