Mitch Marsh (WA) b Sayers 0
South Australia’s pursuit of a win at the WACA in the opening game of the season was given a boost when Sayers dismissed Adam Voges and Mitch March in consecutive balls. Voges was caught behind for a duck and then Marsh had his off stump knocked back.
Jordan Silk (Tasmania) b Sayers 0
Tasmania started its second innings nearly 400 runs behind the Redbacks and Sayers struck early, on the third ball. Silk chose to leave one, hoping it would shape away, but the ball kept going into the off stump.
He was a fast bowler making his Shield debut but Stobo couldn’t believe this delivery. Sayers had already taken four cheap wickets in NSW’s second innings and finished it off with a huge off-cutter which Stobo ignored.
The former Australian Test batsman looked to have this ball covered but there was enough movement off the pitch to catch an inside edge before hitting the stumps.
The Tassie opener chose to take his bat away from a straightening delivery and the umpire had an easy decision to make.
Sam Heazlett (Queensland) c Carey b Sayers 19
Wicket-keeper Alex Carey took 19 catches off Sayers this season but this was high on the degree of difficulty scale. An inside edge off the left-hander was taken down low by Carey in his right glove.
Cameron Boyce (Tasmania) c Carey by Sayers 0
Another Carey special. Boyce edged the first ball he faced and Carey took a brilliant diving catch in front of first slip.
