What and when?

The JLT One-Day Cup is Australia's six-team state-based 50-over competition that will be played in Queensland, Western Australia, New South Wales and Victoria this summer. The tournament begins on Sunday, September 16 when Queensland host Victoria in Townsville and concludes on October 10 with the final at the redeveloped Junction Oval.

How does it work?

Teams play each opponent once before the finals. This year, each team qualifies for the finals, but the road to the grand final for the top-placed teams is far easier. The two sides that finish first and second after the round robin stage advance to the semi-finals, while the bottom four square off in two qualifying finals. Third place will take on sixth at North Sydney Oval on October 3, fourth will play fifth at Drummoyne Oval the following day. Drummoyne Oval will host the first semi-final on October 6, while Junction Oval will hold both the second semi-final (October 7) and the grand final.

How can I watch?

For Australians with a Foxtel subscription, 13 of the 20 matches will be broadcast live on Fox Cricket this season. Fans around the world can watch all matches via a free live stream on cricket.com.au and the CA Live App, as well as regular highlights of every clash.

For those fans looking to attend in person, entry is free at all venues this season. Full fixture can be found here.

What happened last year?

A captain's knock from first-year skipper Mitchell Marsh guided WA to a comprehensive eight-wicket win over South Australia in Hobart. Set 249 for victory, Marsh and Cameron Bancroft put on 126 for the third wicket before the captain hit the winning runs to finish unbeaten on 80 and secure the title with 38 balls to spare.
