A draw vs NSW should be enough for us to finish in top spot, it's just hugely important we don't lose the game.
I’d prefer a win to guarantee it as who knows what we’ll get in Adelaide given it’s at a secondary ground. A draw v NSW and depending on BPs, they are less than a win behind still so not ideal

Karen Rolton is a bit of a road so expect the Redbacks to hang around until tea on day 3. Dean may even make runs on it too.

Team for next game IMO:

Maddinson
Harris
Pucovski
White
Short
Gotch
Pattinson
Tremain
Siddle
Boland
Holland

Anybody, other than Short, Gotch and Pucovski, would be a good captain. Open the bowling with Patto and Trem and then bring on Sid and Boland. Holy cow that's a strong XI...

They havent dropped Dean all this time, there is no chance they will now.

However if we keep him in, there is now way we can play Gotch at 6 and Patto at 7 which means we need to make a call on which bowler will not play in the final.
For me its out of Boland or Siddle for who misses out.

Tremain and Patto must play.

Even if we do drop Dean, which we wont, we need to play 7 bats with Gotch at 7 and only 4 bowlers in my opinion.

Boland is 2nd on the wickets list. He's playing.

Who do we want in the final? I'd be wary of WA, they'd be coming off 3 straight wins to get into the final, but I also don't want NSW in the final... We're only 15 titles behind them!
