Victoria is one of the most successful teams in Sheffield Shield history and dominated this tournament with 4 trophies in the last 7 years. They are yet to taste a defeat this year but have won just 2 out of 5 matches so far. Race for the top two is a realistic target for them but their current form says otherwise. They are placed in 3rd position with 21.9 points from the opening 5 matches, 4.4 points behind leaders Queensland.

Tasmania are playing above expectations level this season and are in contention to reach the finals of Sheffield Shield this year. They remain least successful team in the tournament’s history but it’s a good start to change those numbers from now on. They are placed in 4th position with 21.21 points from the 6 matches, just a point behind 2nd placed Western Australia. A win against struggling Victoria will guide them to the 2nd position.
