Shaun Marsh remained unbeaten on 80.
In an Australian domestic one-day cup game that had its share of rain interruptions, Western Australia won by six wickets against South Australia via the DLS Method at the WACA. WA hunted down the revised target of 165 in the 26th over, with Shaun Marsh remaining unbeaten on 80.
Initially, the match was reduced to 35 overs per side as South Australia finished with 193 for 6. Jake Weatherald top-scored with 60. Lower down the order, Nathan McAndrew and Daniel Worrall stitched a vital, undefeated partnership of 55 for the seventh wicket to power the side to a competitive score.
Matt Kelly and Liam Guthrie shared two scalps each for WA. Kelly, at one point, was also on a hat-trick and ended up with figures of 2 for 37. On the other hand, Guthrie gave away 48 runs for his two wickets. Another spell of rain meant that the target was further revised. In their chase, WA slipped to 73 for 4 with Lloyd Pope, Brendan Doggett and Wes Agar doing the damage. At that stage, Marsh found an able ally in D Arcy Short, as the pair shared an unbeaten 93-run partnership in a mere 58 balls to take the side past the finishing line. Meanwhile, Pope returned figures of 2 for 35 from five overs.
