Victoria suffer heavy defeat in Marsh One-Day Cup opener

Victoria has suffered a heavy defeat in its opening Marsh One-Day Cup game of the 2019-20 season.

Full match highlights – WA v VIC

Western Australia won the toss and elected to bat first, with Josh Philippe (61), Cameron Bancroft (78) and captain Ashton Turner (52) getting the home side off to a flying start, before Marcus Stoinis was left to explode in the final overs.

Stoinis peppered the WACA boundaries and brought up a staggering century off the final ball of the innings to finish 101* from just 58 deliveries to propel the hosts to an imposing 8-386.

Aaron Finch had Victoria on track early in the chase with a quick-fire 33, but the loss of top order wickets set the visitors a tough task. A 94-run stand between Glenn Maxwell (51) and Nic Maddinson (87) briefly threatened to take the game deep, but the WA bowling attack stayed on top to wrap up a 125-run win. Victoria bowled out for 261 in the 40th over.
