Marcus North and Adam Voges were injured in Victoria's 59-run limited overs victory over Western Australia, neither able to play an effective role with the bat as the Warriors fell short of a handsome total bankrolled by a Matthew Wade century.

Wade's 120, which will further enhance his claims to play in Australia's first home Test against New Zealand in December, was augmented by 78 to Brad Hodge and a well-struck 52 to David Hussey. Together they took the Bushrangers to 5 for 317, too many for WA minus their two most experienced batsmen.

North suffered from back spasms in the field and did not bat at all, while Voges suffered a groin strain and hobbled out to bat at No. 10, merely to ensure the Bushrangers did not take a bonus point. Once that goal had been achieved, he retired hurt, thus ending the match.

Ben Edmondson claimed three wickets at great cost for the Warriors, while James Pattinson nabbed a far more striking 3-31 when the Bushrangers took to the field.
