Match Prediction & Tips

This match looks like an interesting battle. Whilst South Australia lost in their last match they still performed well. Alex Hayles was unlucky to be run out without facing a ball and if he’d stayed in and got just 20-30 more runs on the board then the could have won.

They were playing well before the batting collapse and will take some confidence from that. New South Wales are clearly the favourites in the betting for this match after their opening win but it was a Steve Smith masterclass that won the match after their two openers were out at 6/2. Excluding Smiths innings, NSW would have tasted defeat also.
