Marsh Sheffield Shield Day Three: West End Redbacks v NSW Blues

The West End Redbacks' lower order and bowlers have ensured SA are still in with a chance on the final day of the Marsh Sheffield Shield match against the NSW Blues.

  • Henry Hunt and nightwatchman Wes Agar started the day well, bringing up their 50-run partnership. Agar scored his highest first-class score and maiden half-century before departing on 57. His previous best score was 41.

  • When the Blues went back out to bat, the Redbacks had a great start – Agar getting two wickets in the first five overs.
