The 22nd match of the Sheffield Shield 2021-22 has South Australia (SAU) taking on New South Wales (NSW) at the Karen Rolton Oval in South Australia from Wednesday.
Although New South Wales have blown hot and cold in the ongoing Sheffield Shield, their youngsters have made an impact in the absence of Test regulars Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon. However, they will be keen to get a win under their belts against South Australia, who are at the bottom of the points table. With the likes of Henry Hunt and Brendan Doggett in their ranks, South Australia will fancy their chances of a win, especially in front of their home crowd. With valuable points on offer, a cracking game beckons at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide.

Today’s SAU vs NSW Dream11 match top picks
Baxter Holt: Baxter Holt has shown glimpses of his ability in the NSW middle order, scoring some handy runs at times of need. Apart from his batting talents, Holt is a decent bet behind the stumps as well, which should give him the nod over Harry Nielsen in your SAU vs NSW Dream11 fantasy team.
Henry Hunt: South Australia captain Henry Hunt has been their best batter, scoring valuable runs at the top of the order. While the rest of the batting unit has not fired consistently, Hunt's knack for scoring big runs has held him in good stead. With the South Australian keen to get another big one, he is one to watch out for in this game.
Nathan McSweeney: South Australia all-rounder Nathan McSweeney has blown hot and cold in this tournament, but he does provide some much-needed balance and depth to the side. Apart from his handy off-breaks, McSweeney is due for a big one with the bat, making him a decent pick for your SAU vs NSW Dream11 fantasy team.
Tanveer Sangha: Tanveer Sangha has done well as the lead spinner in this New South Wales side, picking up wickets at a decent rate in the competition. Although not much turn is expected at the Karen Rolton Oval, Tanveer's ability to outfox batters with variations in pace makes him a valuable proposition for this much-awaited game.
