Weatherald ton helps South Australia thump NSW
Cricket news - Weatherald ton helps South Australia thump NSW
In what turned out to be a lopsided clash, Jake Weatherald's undefeated 106 powered South Australia to a seven-wicket win over New South Wales at the WACA. SA chased down the target of 242 in the 39th over.
Earlier, seamer Chadd Sayers made sure his skipper's decision to bowl first paid rich dividends, using the afternoon conditions and a fresh pitch to reduce New South Wales to 6 for 2. Adam Zampa, introduced rather early into the attack, struck early, sending back the experienced Moises Henriques and joined forces with Joe Mennie to make incisions through the middle order.
At one point, New South Wales were struggling to put up a decent total, losing wickets with regularity, but Daniel Hughes did well to shed his natural attacking instincts in his bid to stitch together a couple of decent partnerships - first with Jack Edwards and then with Jay Lenton. However, in the unluckiest of ways to get dismissed, he fell victim to Zampa's unintentional ricochet off his palm to disturb the stumps at the non-striker's, when Hughes was way down the pitch in trying to back up.
However, NSW's score on a flat WACA track was never likely to threaten, and Weatherald made sure it doesn't. In an innings studded with 11 fours and four sixes, he was particularly harsh on Sean Abbott, who ended up with an economy rate of eight in his nine overs. Skipper Jake Lehmann was happy to play second fiddle and ensured his side romped home with over eleven overs to spare.
This loss for NSW is their second in as many games and they'd be desperate to reverse it as they take on Victoria on Saturday (September 22). South Australia too lock horns on Saturday with the table-toppers, Western Australia.
Brief scores: New South Wales 241 in 49.1 overs (Daniel Hughes 79, Jack Edwards 42; Adam Zampa 3-37) lost to South Australia 245/3 in 38.2 overs (Jake Weatherald 106*, Jake Lehmann 87; Mickey Edwards 2/66) by 7 wickets
