Rain prevents a result in Sydney

ESPNcricinfo staff

Western Australia 242 and 8 for 219 (O'Keefe 4-47) drew with New South Wales 344

Rain ended any hope of a result at Blacktown Oval in Sydney, where only ten overs were bowled on the final day between New South Wales and Western Australia. The Blues finished the third day needing two wickets to end the Warriors' second innings and set up a potentially small chase, but their hopes were thwarted by the weather and they had to settle for first-innings points.

When play finally began, Western Australia added only eight runs to their overnight total and finished on 8 for 219 when the match was called off, with debutant Ashton Agar unbeaten on 34 and Jason Behrendorff on 7. Steve O'Keefe ended up with 4 for 47 in the second innings and match figures of 8 for 102, a career-best analysis.
