Exciting Showdown: Queensland and West Australia Battle in 18th Match of 2023/24 Season

1 min read

Queensland 61 for 0 vs Western Australia

Matt Renshaw’s quest for a Test opening berth was hampered by rain at the Gabba against Western Australia.

Renshaw was unbeaten at lunch on 37 with opening partner Joe Burns 19 not out, but that was as far as they got on day one of the Sheffield Shield clash.

The visitors won the toss and bowled. Renshaw was confronted with overcast skies, a pitch with a green tinge and a quality pace attack. Despite the tough conditions, Renshaw started his innings well.

Bowlers Jhye Richardson and Cameron Green performed impressively but Renshaw managed to play some good shots and showed determination to stay at the crease.

Renshaw, Bancroft, and Harris are competing to replace David Warner as a Test opener. With improved weather forecast for the remaining days of the Shield match, Renshaw has the chance to make a big score and impress the selectors.

In addition to the ongoing Shield games, Renshaw, Harris, and Bancroft will have the opportunity to showcase their skills again next week when they represent the Prime Minister’s XI against Pakistan in Canberra.
