A rapid 116 by Brad Haddin, the New South Wales wicketkeeper, saved his team from suffering an innings defeat as Western Australia cantered to a six-wicket victory on the final day of the Pura Cup tie at the SCG.
Earlier, the Blues lost Thornley early for 56, adding just five runs to their overnight score of 234. That signalled the arrival of Haddin to the crease. Aaron O'Brien and Haddin added 57 for the fifth-wicket before O'Brien was caught at gully off Ben Edmundson. Haddin continued attacking the bowlers and found good support from lower-order batsman Jason Krejza.
The two guided the Blues past the deficit as Haddin brought up his first century in the Pura Cup this season. His 116 came off just 100 balls with 16 boundaries and two sixes. His dismissal left the Blues with a lead of 35 with four wickets remaining. New South Wales were eventually bowled out for 478, Krejza being the last man dismissed for a dogged 61. Brett Dorey added three more wickets to his tally, finishing with six in the match.
The Warriors reached the target of 88 in just under 18 overs. However, after a solid opening stand of 51, they lost four wickets for just 14 runs, Krejza claming three with his offbreaks.
