A hamstring injury to Mitchell Marsh capped off a disappointing day for Western Australia, who suffered a 14-run loss to South Australia at the WACA. Justin Langer's first match in charge of the Warriors didn't end well as their chase of 220, which seemed to be on track until Marsh's injury came with the score at 5 for 183, ended with the last three wickets falling in the 48th over.

The opener Sam Whiteman had given Western Australia a solid start with 74, an innings that ended when he became one of three victims of Daniel Christian. But on 21, Marsh hurt his left hamstring when he dived to make his ground taking a run, and he limped off the ground, unable to resume his innings.

The Warriors were left needing the remaining runs from the tail but their hopes were dashed when Nathan Coulter-Nile was run out for 14 and later in the same over Gary Putland picked up the final two wickets. The day hadn't started well for the Redbacks, who were 2 for 7 in the fourth over having chosen to bat, when Jason Behrendorff removed Phillip Hughes and Callum Ferguson cheaply.

Alex Ross, playing his fourth one-day game, helped steady South Australia with 62 from 73 balls and he had support from the captain Johan Botha (46). Mitchell Johnson picked up 3 for 47 and Coulter-Nile collected 3 for 40 as the Redbacks reached 9 for 219.

Bad luck with injuries for this lad. Can't seem to put a whole season together at the moment!
