South Australia 1 for 19 trail Western Australia 284 (Voges 54, Christian 4-63, Haberfield 3-64) by 265 runs

South Australia's bowlers backed their stand-in captain Daniel Harris' decision to send Western Australia in at the WACA, restricting the Warriors to 284. At stumps, the Redbacks were 1 for 19 in reply with James Smith on 14 and Michael Klinger on 4.

Several Western Australia batsmen made starts but none managed to fully get on top of the visitors. Adam Voges was the top scorer for the Warriors with 54 while three men, including the No. 9 Steve Magoffin, posted scores in the 40s.

Marcus North was keen to impress ahead of the tour of New Zealand after a lean Test summer but he managed only 29, having already been dropped once. He was one of four wickets for Daniel Christian, who is enjoying a productive summer with the ball and is sixth on the competition wicket tally.

Jake Haberfield was the other key bowler for the Redbacks, picking up 3 for 64. The debutant Gary Putland grabbed two victims.
