Cricket: Sheffield Shield points table right now …

At lunch on day 3 of the final round of games in the Sheffield Shield the points table (for those teams still in the running) looks like this:

New South Wales               28 points

Western Australia              26 points

South Australia                   26 points

Queensland                        24 points

South Australia will not add to its points tally.  There are a number of possible outcomes that could still arise:

  • If New South Wales win outright: they will go to 34 points and Western Australia will remain on 26 points.
  • If Western Australia win outright: they will go to 32 points and New South Wales will remain on 28 points.
  • If New South Wales and Western Australia end up drawing there will be no change to the points from this game.
  • If Queensland win outright: they will go to 30 points.
  • If Queensland lose outright or draw againt Victoria: they will stay on 24 points.

That being the case, the finals could end up looking this way:

  • If Queensland do not win outright: the final will be between New South Wales and Western Australia with the only issue in dispute in Canberra being the venue.
  • If New South Wales and Queensland win outright, the final will be in New South Wales (likely Canberra) between New South Wales and Queensland.
  • If Western Australia and Queensland win outright, the final will be Western Australia between Western Australia and Queensland.

The regular session is reaching an exciting crescendo with all eyes on Canberra and Melbourne for the next moves made by the teams.
