Cameron Green scored a blistering century and pulled off a crucial run out to help guide Western Australia to a thrilling 13-run victory over South Australia in a high-scoring one-day clash at the WACA Ground.
Green (144 off 101 balls) cracked 16 fours and four sixes to lift WA to a formidable 5-369 in Tuesday's match.
Warriors captain Shaun Marsh picked up from where he left off last season with a sparkling 113 from 110 balls.
In reply, the Redbacks were cruising at 1-280 in the 38th over before Green turned the contest on its head with a sharp piece of fielding to run out Travis Head (142 off 86 balls).
Head, fresh off his double century in the drawn Shield game last week, cracked 15 fours and six sixes up until that point to put the Redbacks in the box seat.
But his dismissal triggered a massive collapse of 8-60, with Harry Nielsen (110 off 118) among the wickets to fall.
It left tail-enders Cameron Valente (15 off 13 balls) and Peter Hatzoglou (5no off 5 balls) with the daunting task of getting the Redbacks over the line.
South Australia needed 15 runs off the final over, which was bowled by Aaron Hardie.
Valente missed the first delivery and he was run out next ball when attempting to come back for a second run.
It was the fourth run out of SA's innings, with their final total of 356 coming up just short.
The match came just two days after the teams fought out a thrilling Shield draw in which WA's final-wicket pairing of Cameron Gannon and Liam O'Connor held off South Australia's attack.
Green's latest knock will further increase the hype surrounding the allrounder, who made his Test debut this summer following a stunning start to the Shield season.
