Western Australia has won the Marsh Cup for the second time after cruising to their highest domestic total in Wednesday’s final against South Australia at the WACA.
Josh Inglis and Mitch Marsh both set scoring records as the star-studded side posted a one-day domestic record of 7-387 after being sent in.
Despite a fast start, SA was bowled out for 206, with Ashton Agar taking 5-64, including the crucial wicket of Henry Hunt, who top scored with 50.
Earlier, Inglis hit an 87-ball century on his way to 138, the highest individual score in a One-Day Cup final, alongside Cameron Bancroft, who was dismissed for 90 off 112 balls.
Michael Bevan’s unbeaten 135 for NSW against WA in 2000-01 was the previous highest score in a One-Day Cup final.
Marsh’s half-century off 27 balls was the fastest in a domestic one-day final, with eight boundaries.
Rod Marsh’s 32-ball 50 against South Australia in 1983–84 held the previous record.
The record team total came after WA was 1-35 after 10 overs, which is maybe the most amazing part.
In the final 20 overs of their innings, they scored 210 runs.
