How does the final work?

The JLT Sheffield Shield Final is a five day match. As hosts having finished on top of the table, the Bulls will claim the Shield should the match end in a draw. 

History

The Bulls will be seeking their first title since 2011-12 when they defeated Tasmania in a classic final. The Tigers claimed revenge over the Bulls a season later as the 2012-13 Final ended in a draw, with Tasmania claiming their third title after finishing on top of the table.
