Victoria 437 and 4 for 231 dec beat South Australia 224 and 258 (Cooper 93, Ferguson 79, Holland 4-74) by 186 runs
A career-best match haul from Jon Holland helped Victoria cruise to victory on the fourth day at Adelaide Oval. Holland picked up 4 for 74 in the second innings and seven wickets for the match as Victoria jumped to third on the Sheffield Shield table with their 186-run win over South Australia.
The Redbacks began the day at 3 for 113 chasing 445, with Tom Cooper and Callum Ferguson at the crease. Ferguson, hoping for a century to show the national selectors that he should still be in their thoughts, made 79 before he was brilliantly caught in the slips by a diving Cameron White off the bowling of Will Sheridan.
Cooper made 93, missing his opportunity for his second hundred of the Shield campaign when he was caught and bowled by Holland. There wasn't much resistance from the rest of the South Australian order and the result was confirmed when Cameron Williams was caught behind off Holland with the Redbacks on 258.
