SHEFFIELD SHIELD TIPS & BETTING ADVICE
The Sheffield Shield is the domestic first-class cricket competition in Australia. Matches are played over four days with both teams having the option of batting twice during the match. New South Wales have been the dominant state with 46 titles prior to the 2019-20 competition followed by Victoria with 32.
Making runs on a consistent basis or taking lots of wickets will often throw a player’s name up for selection for the Australian test team.
