Western Australia will take on New South Wales in the final of the Australia One Day Cup 2021/22 at the Junction Oval in Melbourne on Friday.
Western Australia have managed four wins from their six matches to finish on top of the table. However, they’ve played only one match since November, which ended in a massive six-wicket win over Victoria earlier this week.
The big win allowed Western Australia to overtake the Blues and Tasmania in the standings.
New South Wales, meanwhile, have hardly played any 50-over cricket. They’ve had four matches without a ball being bowled and almost find themselves lucky to be in the final.
