In match number 12 of the Marsh Cup, Queensland will be up against South Australia at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane on Sunday.
Queensland have been in top form in the Marsh Cup and currently occupy the second spot in the table with 10 points from three games. They won their first two fixtures against Tasmania and Western Australia before their third match versus Victoria was washed out. Another win will help Usman Khawaja and co. move closer to booking their spot in the final of the Marsh Cup.
Meanwhile, South Australia have had a torrid run in the 50-over competition. They have lost all three of their Marsh Cup games and are out of the race to reach the Marsh Cup final. They lost to Western Australia by just 13 runs while chasing 370 in their first game before New South Wales and Tasmania absolutely thrashed them. With nothing much to play for, the Travis Head-led side will be looking to end their Marsh Cup campaign on a high.

The track at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane is expected to be a good one to bat on. The ball is likely to come on to the bat nicely, enabling the batsmen to play shots on the up. However, there will be some movement for the fast bowlers early on. A score of around 280-300 could well be par on this surface.
