Player of the match, Jack Edwards, delivered a stunning performance with the ball, claiming figures of 3 for 14 as Western Australia faltered to a modest total of 161 all out in sweltering conditions reaching 41 degrees Celsius.

Facing the challenging target, New South Wales exhibited their batting prowess as they cruised to victory with a remarkable 17.4 overs to spare. Opener Daniel Hughes led the charge with a composed innings of 52 runs off 83 balls, ably supported by Ollie Davies who contributed a crucial 38 off 34 deliveries.

The result propelled New South Wales from third place to the coveted top spot on the Marsh Cup table, while Western Australia’s second defeat of the season saw them slide to second position. Notably, both of Western Australia’s losses have come against the Blues, setting the stage for a potential showdown if the two teams meet in the final.

Western Australia’s innings got off to a shaky start as they stumbled to 15 for 3 within the first few overs, courtesy of Jack Edwards’ early breakthroughs. Despite a valiant effort from D’Arcy Short and AJ Tye, who stitched together a resilient 69-run partnership, Western Australia’s innings folded after they were bowled out for 161.

In their run chase, New South Wales faced an early scare, slipping to 19 for 2 after the dismissals of Edwards and Blake Macdonald. However, Daniel Hughes’ composed innings ensured there would be no major collapse as New South Wales cruised to victory in commanding fashion.
