Scorecard

Western Australia thumped South Australia by 10 wickets at the WACA after the home team's seamers triggered a collapse that helped seal a comfortable victory. South Australia were reasonably well placed when play began, on 206 for 2, with Callum Ferguson having scored a century and captain Michael Klinger on his way towards one. But Klinger fell early on day four, failing to add to his 80, and that marked the start of South Australia's slide.

Michael Hogan bowled Klinger and returned later to rattle the lower order to finish with four wickets and pushed his match tally to nine. In the interim left-arm seamer Jason Behrendorff nipped out Ferguson and Troy Cooper. South Australia lost their last eight wickets for 82, leaving Western Australia to chase a target of just 15, which they did without any damage in 5.2 overs. The win leaves Western Australia placed second on the points table, after Queensland.
