South Australia cruised to a 10-wicket win over Western Australia on the fourth day at the WACA, where they began the morning needing only a further 37 runs for victory. Openers Jake Weatherald (37 not out) and Kelvin Smith (29 not out) carried the Redbacks to their target of 69 without loss, needing only 15.3 overs on the final day to get the job done.

South Australia’s Chadd Sayers was named Man of the Match for his match haul of 6 for 108, although much of the focus from the outside was on Shaun Marsh, who secured his Test place with scores of 73 and 110. Callum Ferguson and Tom Cooper also posted centuries for South Australia.
