The JLT One-Day Cup game between New South Wales and South Australia was a high scoring contest at the Sydney’s Hurstville Oval. The visiting team South Australia posted a huge total of 346/6 in the 50 overs with the centuries from Alex Ross and Jake Weatherald. In the big chase, Daniel Hughes and Kurtis Patterson’s big stand put NSW in the hunt but both got out on consecutive balls which slimed their chances. The home team was bowled out for 301 losing the game by 45 runs.

Here we look at all the stats and records created during the game.

3 – Number of individual centuries recorded in this game; Alex Ross 110, Daniel Hughes 103 and Jake Weatherald 103. Had Kurtis Patterson (84) also scored a hundred, this could have been only the 3rd game in Australian Domestic One-Day tournament to record four individual centuries.

32 – Runs Ross scored off Nathan Lyon in the 40th over of South Australia’s innings. He struck Lyon for 4, 6, 6, 4, 6 and 6 in consecutive balls to yield 32 runs. This is the first time in List A cricket in Australia where 30 runs came off a single over. (From available data) The previous best was 27 runs during the last season by Tasmania’s Xavier Doherty and Beau Webster against Western Australia’s Andrew Tye.

88 – Runs Nathan Lyon conceded in the nine overs he bowled in this game. These are the 2nd most runs conceded by any player in nine or fewer overs in an Australian One-Day Cup game. Andrew Feteke conceded 91 in his nine overs in 2014 while playing for Tasmania against Queensland. These 88 runs are also the most conceded by a New South Wales bowler in a One-Day game breaking Aaron Bird’s record, who gave away 87 runs in the nine overs he bowled against Victoria in 2008.

346/6 – South Australia’s total of 346/6 is their highest total against New South Wales and their 3rd highest in List A cricket. This is also the 3rd highest total for any team against NSW in List A cricket.

409 – Jake Weatherald scored 409 runs in nine List A innings in his career so far. His 103-run knock in this game is his 2nd List A hundred with his 1st being 141 against CA XI in 2016. Excluding the centuries, Weatherald has scored 165 List A runs in 7 innings without a fifty.

647 – The match aggregate of 647 runs is the highest in a List A game between New South Wales and South Australia. The 50-over game between these two sides at the North Sydney Oval in 2010 aggregated 631 runs. This match aggregate is also the 9th highest in Australian Domestic One-day with nine of top ten coming in Sydney.
