A pair of South West guns will play for Western Australia as the State’s cricket team looks to break a 23-year drought in one of the world’s most famous competitions. No changes have been made to the squad to face Victoria in Thursday’s Sheffield Shield final from the side that beat the same team last week. That starting 11 included both Bunbury batter Sam Whiteman and Dunsborough pace ace Lance Morris. WA is aiming for the State’s first Shield win since a star-studded side including Adam Gilchrist, Justin Langer and Mike Hussey beat Queensland at the GABBA to claim the title in 1999. After a difficult season, in which he fell out of favour in the State’s one-day team and managed less than a handful of games for his new Big Bash League club the Sydney Thunder, Whiteman made somewhat of a breakthrough with the bat against Victoria, scoring a first innings 63. Morris led his side to an innings victory with a blistering spell of 4-55 from 13.3 overs in the second innings. Whiteman has featured in a Shield final once before — a drawn game in Hobart seven years ago. Then touted as a future Australian wicket-keeper, the Colts Cricket Club product hit 72 in the first innings, but the contested petered out into a draw. The match, which runs over five days, begins on Thursday.
