ESPNcricinfo staff

Western Australia 368 & 3 for 222 dec beat Victoria 141 & 208 (Hussey 57, Dorey 3-33) by 241 runs

Brett Dorey and Michael Beer combined for six wickets as Western Australia moved off the bottom of the ladder with their 241-run win over Victoria. The hosts needed to reach 450 but only David Hussey, the stand-in captain, could resist for long and the game was over shortly after tea.

The Bushrangers resumed at 0 for 43 but could not overcome an attack led by Mitchell Johnson, who finished with six wickets for the game. Dorey was the pick with 3 for 33 in the second innings while Beer, the spinner, ran through the lower order with 3 for 39.

Johnson helped dismantle the top by removing Aaron Finch, with his 1 for 58 following his first-innings 5 for 35. Hussey posted a hard-working 57 but when he was caught behind off Michael Hogan the end was near.

Victoria weren't helped by being without Andrew McDonald, who broke his hand on day one, and limped to 208. The Warriors moved to fifth, two points behind the Bushrangers.
