In the sixth round of the 2020-21 Sheffield Shield, Queensland will lock horns with Victoria at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane on Monday. Both Queensland and Victoria are coming into this game after a draw in their respective last games.
Queensland have been very consistent in the Sheffield Shield this season and are sitting pretty at the top of the points table. They have won three of their five games and lost just one. Their only loss came against New South Wales early in the Sheffield Shield season. Nevertheless, they will look to continue their good form and consolidate their spot atop the Sheffield Shield points table.
Meanwhile, Victoria have blown hot and cold in the 2020-21 Sheffield Shield, drawing four of their five games. Their sole win came against New South Wales in a close Sheffield Shield game. With 17 points in their kitty, they need to pull up their socks quickly.

Venue: Allan Border Field, Brisbane.
This is the first and only red-ball game at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane this season.
The pitch at the venue is a sporting one. The batsmen usually enjoy the pace and bounce, and the ball comes on to the ball nicely. The ball is expected to move around a touch, and there is likely to be some good carry as well. However, spinners might come into play as the game progresses.
