Victoria thrash South Australia, extend lead atop points table

Victoria 184 (Finch 49, Sayers 4-40) and 306 (Finch 71, White 56, Sayers 4-59) beat South Australia 178 (Lehmann 92, Holland 4-26) and 188 (Head 47) by 124 runs.

James Pattinson’s 3 wickets in his comeback from injury helped Victoria extend their advantage at the top of the Sheffield Shield table with a comprehensive victory over South Australia inside three days at Adelaide Oval.



313 to win after Victoria were bowled out for 306, South Australia never threatened to get close after their top order was rumbled for the second time in the match.

Two wickets in the first innings, Pattinson accounted for Sam Raphael and Tom Cooper with the new ball before returning to end the resistance of Alex Carey. Chris Tremain and Scott Boland were also among the wickets, and Jon Holland completed another excellent display against SA by wrapping up the tail to finish with seven for the match.
