Victoria vs South Australia, Melbourne

Scott Boland’s physical issue tarnished what in any case might have been an ideal beginning for Victoria in their game against South Australia on Day 1 at the Intersection Oval in Melbourne. Selecting to bowl, Victoria enclosed the South Australia players to a corner, as confirmed by Jake Carder taking 131 balls for his 17 runs.
