Western Australia look to claim consecutive Marsh Cup titles vs New South Wales
New South Wales will take on defending champions Western Australia in the final of the Marsh One-Day Cup at the Bankstown Oval in Sydney on Sunday, April 11.
The Blues have remained unbeaten in the ongoing edition of the Australia Domestic One Day Cup, winning four of the five matches in the group stage. One match ended in a no result.
On the other hand, Western Australia finished second in the group stage, having won three of the five matches. The Mitchell Marsh-led side had suffered defeat against Queensland while one of the matches was abandoned due to rain.
New South Wales will be without Steve Smith, David Warner, Pat Cummins, Moises Henriques, Adam Zampa and Daniel Sams, who all have joined their respective franchises in the Indian T20 League.
However, Kurtis Patterson’s side has received a massive boost ahead of the Australia Domestic One Day final as their star pacer Sean Abbott looks set to return to action from a hand injury. Furthermore, Sydney Thunder spin sensation Tanveer Sangha, who is uncapped at List A level, has been included in the squad.
For Western Australia, veteran batsman Shaun Marsh will miss Sunday's Marsh One-Day Cup Final due to a family illness. The 37-year-old had also pulled out of Thursday's encounter against Tasmania and he didn't join his team-mates on their flight to Sydney on Friday morning.

New South Wales squad: Kurtis Patterson (captain), Sean Abbott, Oliver Davies, Ben Dwarshuis, Jack Edwards, Matthew Gilkes (wicket-keeper), Liam Hatcher, Josh Hazlewood, Daniel Hughes, Nick Larkin, Nathan Lyon, Jason Sangha, Tanveer Sangha, Mitchell Starc
