South Australia 6 for 246 (Klinger 88, Hughes 73, Boland 5-63) defeated Victoria 8 for 241 (Handscomb 65, Putland 4-44) by 4 wickets
Gary Putland and South Australia completed a memorable week in Melbourne with a four-wicket victory over Victoria in the domestic limited overs match at the MCG.
Backing up from a match haul of 12 for 92 in SA's Sheffield Shield win over the Bushrangers, Putland claimed another match award by claiming 4 for 44 as the hosts were restricted to 8 for 241.
In reply, the Redbacks were given the perfect start by Michael Klinger and Phillip Hughes, the openers adding 164 before a collapse of 6 for 48 gave Victoria some hope of snatching the points.
However the wicketkeeper Tim Ludeman and the captain Johan Botha rallied the chase to overhaul Victoria's total with 22 balls to spare.
Putland's haul included the wicket of the Bushrangers' top scorer Peter Handscomb, who was yorked after making an attractive 64.
SA's wobbles in the chase came via a combination of diligent bowling by Scott Boland and a series of ill-advised swings at short-pitched deliveries, offering a series of catches to the Victorian fielders before Ludeman and Botha settled the affair.
