Langer half-century sets up Western Australia
Western Australia 4 for 238 (Langer 61) v New South Wales
Krejza, the offspinning allrounder, is playing his first game of a season marred by shin splits, and he got into the act quickly, removing Langer and Shaun Marsh to push the Warriors on the back foot at 3 for 154. Thirty runs later Matthew Nicholson got rid off Adam Voges to raise hopes of a good day for the hosts before an unbroken 54-run partnership between Marcus North and David Bandy pulled Warriors out of trouble. NSW fielded two spinners on a pitch expected to assist them, and while Krejza picked up a couple of wickets, Stuart MacGill went wicketless in his 19 overs.
