Needing 106 from 22 overs to win under the DLS method, WA required two runs off the last ball but only managed one. The tie was enough for SA to finish in the top four.

The team has had a spread of contributors across its six games. Leading runscorers have been Kensington’s William Montgomery (225), captain Joshua Hoffman (218) and Thomas Kelly (210, including an unbeaten 108).

Glenelg’s Will Bowering is SA’s leading wicket-taker, with 11.

SA’s Kyle Brazell, who is representing the Cricket Australia XI, is the leading runscorer in the championships with 304 at 60.8, including 90 against his home State on Sunday.
