Western Australia 4 for 167 (Marsh 80*) beat South Australia 6 for 193 (Weatherald 60) by six wickets (DLS method)
Shaun Marsh struck an unbeaten half-century to guide Western Australia to a six-wicket win over South Australia in a rain-affected one-day clash at the WACA Ground.
In a match with four rain delays, WA were originally set a victory target of 199 off 35 overs under the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern system, before that was revised down to 165 off 27 overs.
WA slipped to 4 for 74, but Marsh (80 no off 63 balls) and D'Arcy Short (35 no off 27 balls) got the home side over the line with an unbeaten 93-run stand. Marsh cracked 11 fours and a six in his classy knock.
The game was still delicately poised with three overs to go and WA needing 29 runs for victory, but South Australia unravelled from that point. Brendan Doggett bowled a delivery so wide that it didn't even hit the pitch, with WA peeling 12 runs off his wayward over.
Wes Agar fared even worse straight after, bowling two no-balls and a wide to start the over. Short made him pay, thumping a six off one of the free hits, before Marsh cracked two boundaries later in the over to secure victory with eight balls to spare. Agar's over, which consisted of only four legal deliveries, ended up costing 19 runs.
Earlier, the Redbacks compiled a total of 6 for 193 off 35 during an innings that was disrupted three times by rain. Opener Jake Weatherald top-scored for the visitors with 60 off 81 balls, while Daniel Worrall (31no off 25 balls) and Nathan McAndrew (21no off 15 balls) combined for an unbeaten 55-run partnership to boost South Australia's score.
Dangerman Travis Head, who had posted scores of 163 and 230 in his two previous one-day knocks this season, was out for 28 when he edged Lance Morris behind.
The Redbacks were struggling at 3 for 48 in the ninth over, but the second rain delay allowed them to regroup and stop the wobbles. Matt Kelly dismissed Weatherald and Ryan Gibson in consecutive balls later in the innings. Kelly's hat-trick ball was a cracker, with Worrall almost edging it behind.
WA allrounder Cameron Green, who is vying for an Ashes berth, returned figures of 1 for 38 off seven overs.
