Round 2 of the Sheffield Shield has Western Australia facing New South Wales in Adelaide.
The Western Australians had a brilliant start to their campaign courtesy of a 205-run win against South Australia. The likes of Ashton Agar and Shaun Marsh were on cue as WA firmly established their aspirations in the Sheffield Shield.
However, they now face a tough test against a New South Wales side which boasts of a wealth of international experience. Led by Peter Nevill, NSW have a star-studded bowling attack consisting of Nathan Lyon and Harry Conway, who are ones to watch out for in this fixture.
Although both teams have a lot of experience and talent in their rosters, Western Australia are the favourites heading into this game. However, they will be wary of Peter Nevill and co in what should be an entertaining game of cricket at the Gladys Elphick Park starting this Monday.
Squads to choose from
Shaun Marsh (C), Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Hilton Cartwright, Cam Gannon, Cameron Green, Liam Guthrie, Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis, Matt Kelly, Lance Morris, Ashton Turner and Sam Whiteman

Match: Western Australia vs New South Wales
Date: 19th October 2020, 5:30 AM IST
Venue: Gladys Elphick Park, Adelaide
As seen in the previous game at this venue, the pacers should have a significant say with a lot of swing and bounce on offer for them. Although the likes of Marnus Labuschagne and Michael Neser were able to pile on the runs, it should be a competitive game between bat and ball in Adelaide. The spinners should come into play in the second half of the game, with both teams looking to bat first upon winning the toss.
