The opening stand of Josh Phillipe and Josh Inglis have gone off to an excellent start for Western Australia.
So far for Victoria, the quicks produced too full, short or width deliveries.
Even missing dropped catches didn’t make up lost time.
It made both openers to capitalize some boundaries as WA reached 60 in eight overs.
And that frustrated Scott Boland & Wes Agar.
But Tom O’Connell eventually breaks the partnership which relived the 1st wicket for Victoria.
Thanks to the catch of Nic Maddinson, Josh Inglish left for 42.
At the same time, Phillipe reached his 50, scoring two out of three half-knocks in this tournament.
In 13 overs, WA reached 100 with 97 more to win before Glenn Maxwell clean-bowled Josh Phillipe.
Phillipe looks on to cut through mid-wicket, but he misjudges the shot going early shot as he leaves on 65.
Scott Boland added Victoria’s third wicket with the catch of Seb Gotch as Darcy Short leaves for 23.
By the halfway stage, WA needed 26 to win off 146 balls before Ashton Turner got stuck.
That’s where Marcus Stoinis hits the cannon-ball drive & hits the stumps as Turner couldn’t back his crease on time at 18.
Stonis may have fallen three runs short of 50.
But he contributed WA’s day on the run home with a big-hitting six.
Western Australia wins by six wickets plus the bonus point.
