WA are still within striking distance of their first Sheffield Shield title in 21 years with two games to play on their home turf, elevating the importance of this upcoming clash.

WA are currently undefeated in their last eight Sheffield Shield matches at the WACA Ground and defeated the Victorians by nine wickets in their most recent meeting at the iconic venue in October 2019.

Uncapped exciting local spinner Corey Rocchiccioli has been called in to the side, alongside fast bowlers David Moody and Lance Morris.

Leg spinner Liam O’Connor and young quick Liam Guthrie have been left out.

WA duo Cameron Gannon and Matthew Kelly have each taken four wickets via short balls in the 2020-21 Shield campaign, twice as many as any other player in the competition.

WA currently sit fourth on the 2020-21 Sheffield Shield ladder with one win and five draws.

The WA players involved in Australia’s T20 Series in New Zealand completed their self-quarantine yesterday and were not considered for selection in this fixture.
