Missed Opportunity for Marnus as Redbacks Outshine Carey

Victoria defeated South Australia by 23 runs in their Sheffield Shield match, despite Alex Carey proving his credentials. The Vics won on day four with a late cameo from Wes Agar. Earlier, Carey’s innings of 81 runs from 116 deliveries rejuvenated the Redbacks. However, he was ultimately dispatched by Mitch Perry. This match was a timely opportunity for Carey, as it is his only game between being cut from the World Cup and the start of the Test summer. Meanwhile, the Sheffield Shield clash between Queensland and Western Australia ended in a draw, with Marnus Labuschagne falling short of an extended innings. Jhye Richardson and Cameron Green contributed solid performances for WA, which helped them secure a draw.
