Incredibly, they also achieved this feat last season, with the Sheffield Shield Final ending in a draw.

Western Australia vs Victoria: What the form guide says & possible XIs

Western Australia won five straight matches before they were thumped by seven wickets at the hands of Victoria at the WACA. Scott Boland won man of the match thanks to his brilliant 4/29 and 4/69, leading Victoria to their sixth win in their past seven matches.

Interestingly, these two teams will play each other again at the same ground, with some new additions (below).

Squads

Western Australia: TBC

Victoria: Peter Handscomb (c), Scott Boland, Ashley Chandrasinghe, Travis Dean, Sam Harper, Marcus Harris, Jon Holland, Campbell Kellaway, Cameron McClure, Todd Murphy, Fergus O’Neill, Mitchell Perry, Matt Short, Will Sutherland

Possible XIs

Jhye Richardson is out after hamstring surgery. Lance Morris is set to play after Test duty. Matt Kelly and Joel Paris are also set to return.

Western Australia: 1. Cameron Bancroft, 2. Sam Whiteman (c), 3. Teague Wyllie, 4. Hilton Cartwright, 5. Aaron Hardie, 6. Ashton Turner, 7. Josh Philippe (wk), 8. Joel Paris, 9. Lance Morris, 10. Corey Rocchiccioli, 11. Matthew Kelly

Todd Murphy and Peter Handscomb are back from Test duty. Jon Holland is likely to miss out, which will be tough on the left-arm spinner given he bowled beautifully at the WACA last week.

Victoria: 1. Marcus Harris, 2. Ashley Chandrasinghe, 3. Peter Handscomb (c), 4. Campbell Kellaway, 5. Matt Short, 6. Will Sutherland, 7. Sam Harper (wk), 8. Fergus O’Neill, 9. Mitchell Perry, 10. Todd Murphy, 11. Scott Boland

What if the 2023 Sheffield Shield Final ends in a draw?

If the final ends in a draw, the team who secures the most bonus points after the first innings will be declared champions.

How the bonus points system works:

  • Bonus points are awarded only in the first 100 overs of each team’s first innings.
  • Batting side earns 0.01 of a bonus point for every run over 200 in that first 100 overs.
  • Bowling side earns 0.1 of a bonus point for every wicket they take in that first 100 overs.
