Victoria 1 for 185 (Finch 80*, Maxwell 58*) beat Western Australia 181 (Marsh 51, Herrick 5-51) by 9 wickets

Jayde Herrick and John Hastings rumbled Western Austraia for 181 then Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell sprinted with the bat to deliver a bonus point for Victoria in the domestic limited overs match at the MCG.

The Bushrangers prevailed with 16.4 overs to spare, adding to the Warriors' difficulties on the day they lost their coach Lachlan Stevens and little more than a week after their captain Marcus North also resigned.

Winning the toss and batting first in his first match as WA's interim captain, Adam Voges made only 18 as all of the WA top four passed 15 but failed to go past 27.

The only innings of any substance was 51 from Mitch Marsh, having come to the wicket at 4 for 70. Herrick bowled with his usual vigour, and earned his best limited overs figures.

WA's bowlers charged in at the start of the defence, none more so than Mitchell Johnson, who had one bouncer fly over the 'keeper Tom Triffitt's head and into the fence on the first bounce.

But Finch and Chris Rogers weathered the early storm, and Maxwell helped ensure that the Bushrangers would register a most comfortable victory over their bedraggled opposition.
