In the third game of the 2020-21 Australia Domestic One-Day Cup (Marsh Cup), Western Australia will take on South Australia Redbacks at the WACA in Perth.
Western Australia will look to open their Marsh Cup title defence with a win. They had won the 2019-20 edition of the Marsh Cup, winning five of their seven league games before beating table-toppers Queensland to win the title.
Meanwhile, South Australia blew hot and cold in the Marsh Cup last season. In the 50-over domestic competition, South Australia won four games and lost three to finish fourth in the points table. The Travis Head-led side will hope for a better Marsh Cup campaign this time around.

The track at the WACA in Perth is historically known to assist the fast bowlers. There is good pace and bounce, and the carry is excellent.
However, over the years, it has become a good track to bat on. Thus, a score of around 300 could be par on this wicket. There could be some movement early on with the new ball for the fast bowlers. Moreover, as it is a day game in the Marsh Cup, the team winning the toss could look to bat first.
