A crucial clash for the Redbacks in the penultimate round of Shield action before the KFC Big Bash break. Undefeated New South Wales sit well ahead at the top of the standings, but the chasing pack is closely bunched and a victory for SA or WA could see the order shift significantly at the midway mark of the season. A dramatic draw against Tasmania proves the Redbacks are closing in on a much-deserved win, while the potential debut of promising teenager Liam Scott adds another exciting element to this week’s trip west.

Redback to watch – Alex Carey
It’s another great opportunity for Carey to lead South Australia after stepping in as captain in the State’s final One-Day Cup match last week. A natural leader, the 28-year-old scored a handy half-century in that match against Victoria and boasts a healthy average of 49 from four first-class innings at the WACA heading into this week’s clash with the Warriors.
Danger player – Shaun Marsh
The veteran has enjoyed a strong start to the summer and sits second for runs so far this Shield season behind only in-form Redback Tom Cooper. Marsh also crafted an unbeaten century in WA’s One-Day Cup final victory on Tuesday and hit a match-winning 163* in his last Shield outing against South Australia.
