South Australia 443 and 1 for 36 beat Victoria 346 and 132 (Handscomb 50, Putland 5-28, Sayers 4-50) by 9 wickets
Gary Putland took 12 wickets for the match as South Australia cruised to their first Sheffield Shield win at the MCG since 1998. Victoria began the day at 6 for 86 and they added another 46 runs for the loss of their final four wickets, leaving the Redbacks a chase of 36 that they completed for the loss of only one wicket.
Peter Handscomb (50) provided the main resistance for the Bushrangers but they had no real answers to Putland, who picked up 5 for 28 in the second innings to add to his first-innings figures of 7 for 64. Chadd Sayers was also important for the Redbacks and collected 4 for 50 in the second innings, to finish with six victims for the game.
The only wicket South Australia lost in the chase was that of opener and first-innings centurion Phillip Hughes, who was caught behind off Jayde Herrick for 8. Sam Raphel (10 not out) and Michael Klinger (18 not out) got the Redbacks to their target with no further damage.
