Ford Ranger Cup

South Australia v New South Wales

New South Wales won by 5 wickets (with 24 balls remaining)

Good afternoon and welcome to a picture perfect Adelaide for the last game of the home and away Ford Ranger Cup season. South Australia are hosting New South Wales. It is a dead rubber of sorts as the finalists have already been decided. Victoria will host Tasmania on Sunday in the final. But the winner of today's match could finish the year in third spot on the table.

It looks a perfect surface for today's game. NSW thumped the Redbacks by an innings in the Shield game over the weekend. The Redbacks would love to atone for that.

Graham Manou has won the toss and South Australia will bat first. Manou returns from injury to replace Tim Ludeman. The Redbacks have also brought back James Smith and Australian U19 representative Kane Richardson.

NSW don't have the services of David Warner or Steve Smith. They have also left out Daniel Smith. Peter Nevill will wear the gloves for the Blues. Daniel Smith has a thumb injury.
