In an impressive innings, his first at home for the Redbacks, Flower hit 74 off 73 deliveries, the winning six coming in the 45th over off WA's Marcus North. Flower and youngster Mark Cosgrove (50 from 75 balls) put on 107 runs for the fifth-wicket from 121 balls to help SA to a solid total.
But despite Flower's personal success, it was a poor day for South Australia as they went down to a comprehensive seven-wicket defeat with Murray Goodwin (80) and Mike Hussey (84*) putting on an unbeaten 153 for the fourth wicket in 121 balls.
In 2001-02 Hussey collected Aus $200,000 for hitting a simlar sign at Perth.
