Pura Cup points table
Queensland cruised to a crushing nine-wicket win over Western Australia on the final day at Perth, despite a valiant hundred from Adam Voges. Ryan Campbell, playing in his final game for Western Australia, fell cheaply - bowled by Man of the Match Michael Kasprowicz - and it was left to Voges to nurture the tail.
Voges, who resumed on 119, was seventh man out for a magnificent 178, his highest first-class score and his third century. Courageous though his innings was, it left Queensland the simple matter of knocking off 128 runs, which they managed for the loss of just one wicket
Jimmy Maher hit the winning runs, an edge to the fine-leg boundary, and finished on 59 not out, well supported by Martin Love who struck eight fours in his breezy, unbeaten fifty. While Queensland headed closer to their eighth consecutive Pura Cup final, this defeat was Western Australia's fifth in six matches this season and they sit at the bottom of the table. Queensland's next opponent is New South Wales, currently top of the table, on February 2.
