Redbacks sting Vics to reach one-day final

South Australia’s team of no-names are just one win from an unlikely one-day cup triumph after another disciplined performance proved enough to see off Victoria by 56 runs in the elimination final at Drummoyne Oval.

The Redbacks will now face one more massive hurdle in the shape of in-form NSW in Sunday’s final, as they seek to end their five-year tournament drought.

Once again South Australia bowled a disciplined line and length to turn the screws on Victoria, who capitulated under the pressure, losing their final eight wickets for just 60 runs.

The Bushrangers were eventually bowled out for 194 from 46.4 overs, well short of South Australia’s 7-250.

The SA spinners played an important role with Adam Zampa (2-61) collecting the key wicket of top-scorer Rob Quiney, as well as captain Matthew Wade, while Tom Andrews dismissed Marcus Stoinis.

Quiney (71) and Stoinis (56) were the only players to get going for the Bushrangers, with the pair sharing a partnership of 113 for the second wicket.

But it was Redbacks batsman Alex Ross who played the innings of the match, hitting a career-best 97 not out to help his side rally after they slipped to 4-62.

“Winning the toss and batting first was pretty important, and we were pretty confident defending 250,” said Ross.

“They started slowly but with wickets in hand a side like Victoria can chase anything, so it was good that we kept taking wickets.

“We are just happy to play as a team, and get over the line as the underdog.

“We are really excited to be in the final, and anything can happen in a final, cliché or not.”

Defeat was a bitter pill to swallow for Victoria coach David Saker, with his side containing ten players that boast international experience.

“It is very disappointing given the talent we have in the room and we shouldn’t be losing 9-75,” he said.

“We got a decent start, but we chewed up some balls, and it put some pressure on the back end. That (performance) is not good.”
