Well it's the big one. The two sides have been the best throughout the year, having more points than any other side, despite having played less games than all bar one of the other sides. Western Australia have had the wood over Victoria recently, the Vics having failed to win in the last 6 matches against the West Aussies, with three wins and three draws for the hosts.

Western Australian squad: Cameron Bancroft, Hilton Cartwright, Aaron Hardie, Sam Fanning, Cameron Gannon, Matt Kelly, Shaun Marsh (c), David Moody, Lance Morris, Joel Paris, Josh Philippe, Corey Rocchiccioli, D'Arcy Short, Sam Whiteman, Teague Wylie

Victorian squad: Scott Boland, Travis Dean, Peter Handscomb (c), Sam Harper, Marcus Harris, Jon Holland, Nic Maddinson, Jonathon Merlo, Fergus O'Neill, Mitch Perry, Will Pucovski, James Seymour, Matt Short, Will Sutherland

I like WA for this. Hard to see Victoria bouncing back so soon after such a big defeat against the best side this season.

The forecast has been the same every day since last weekend and we've hardly had any rain at all so I don't think it will have a significant impact

Forgot that the bonus points came into things rather than playing for a draw from the opening ball.

Could some one please update me on the rules for a result in the GF.

Traditional bonus point system applies so 0.01 for every run after 200 in the first 100 overs and 0.1 for every wicket in first 100 overs.

If it is a draw then the team with most bonus points wins the Shield.

Thanks,that more sense then the top team batting first and batting for over 4 days and playing for the draw.
