Western Australia 387 (Short 257, Kuhnemann 3-50) beat Queensland 271 (Heazlett 107, Lynn 58, Tye 6-46) by 116 runs
D & # 39; Arcy Short reached 11 races on the highest score on List A, stealing 257 of 148 balls with the help of a record of 23 sixes, the most entries. His knock, the highest score of a day by an Australian, led Western Australia to a 116-race victory over Queensland in the JLT One-Day Cup at the Hurstville Oval in Sydney. Short overtook Shikhar Dhawan to register the third highest score on List A, behind 268 for Ali Brown and 264 for Rohit Sharma.
Queensland had an explosive start in their pursuit and needed 143 runs in the last 15 overs with seven wickets in hand, but the center and bottom order could not build at the start of the century by Sam Heazlett (107).
Once Queensland opted for the bowl, Short was the only Western Australian hitter to cross 30, when the wickets fell to the other side. He went out to bat in 1 for 19, which was soon 2 for 23, before he stitched fifty partnerships with captain Ashton Turner, Marcus Stoinis and Hilton Cartwright. The greatest position of the match was for the seventh wicket of 109 races between Short and Mathew Kelly, which catapulted them to 338 in the 43rd. Short was in such a flow, he reached all his milestones of 100, 150, 200 and 250 with six, and 200 and 250 with three consecutive sixes against Charlie Hemphrey and Luke Feldman, respectively. He had only hit four four legs and a six to 20, but by the time he was puzzled at position 46, he had accumulated 15 fours and 23 sixes in total, for a combined 198 races.
Western Australia lasted only 10 more deliveries once it was fired, by 387, the sixth highest total in Australia's one-day national competitions. Feldman was the only bowler who ended up with an economy rate of less than six per envelope, taking 2 out of 59 in his 10 overs.
The pursuit of Queensland was also aided by the 48 balls of Chris Lynn until the 21st. But once Lynn, Hemphrey (46) and Heazlett were fired by the 34th, Queensland finished with 56 other deliveries for only 33 races. Andrew Tye ran through the lineup, first eliminating Lynn and then the last five fields, finishing with the best figures of his career of 6 by 46. The victory was the fourth of Western Australia to bounce this season to continue his unbeaten streak.
