An unbeaten half-century from Brad Haddin and strong performances from Ed Cowan and Daniel Christian steered New South Wales to a tight four-wicket victory against South Australia at Adelaide. Chasing a healthy 7 for 251, the Blues were cruising half-way through the innings before Darren Lehmann struck twice and Cowan was run-out for 74.

However, Haddin, batting at No. 5, quickly re-floated New South Wales with a 47-ball 56 and secured the victory with four balls remaining. The performances of Cowan and Christian, who scored his first half-century, were also important as they replied to a Redbacks total set up by Lehmann.

South Australia were in difficulty at 3 for 49 before Lehmann arrived for a 107-run partnership with Callum Ferguson (64). Lehmann, who won the toss and batted, was dismissed in the 49th over for 86 but his effort with bat and ball was not enough to stave off the challenge of Haddin and Co.
