Western Australia had squared off against New South Wales in their last encounter, where New South Wales won the toss and elected to field. On a fast-paced track, Western Australia were not too effective with the bat, as they were bowled for 141. With a brilliant century from Olivier Davies, Wales did a pretty good job to post a total of 276 runs on the board. In the third innings, they again displayed a pretty dismal performance by the batters, leading Western Australia to be bowled out for just 136, with New South Wales getting a target of just two runs. They were able to do so easily and won the game by 10 wickets.
South Australia had played against Queensland in their last game, where Queensland won the toss and elected to field. With sensational centuries from Henry Hunt and Nathan McSweeney, South Africa, being put to bat first, piled on a huge total of 359 runs before they declared their innings. Owing to a couple of fifties, Queensland could only make 238 before being bowled out. South Australia fumbled on their way out in the third innings with none of the batters taking charge, resulting in being bowled out for just 151. The pair of Usman and Joe made the chase look possible, but the team fell short of the target by just three runs.
