It lost its first wicket when the total was 82 and a second one quickly followed, but the joy would be short-lived for the Kangaroos, as they took just one more wicket for the innings.

Casey-South Melbourne got the runs in the 40th over, to secure the two bonus points for reaching the target within 40 overs.

Wicket takers for the Kangaroos were Zaheer Hussain, Huzma Ali and Sunam Gautam.

The match was shortened to a one-dayer after day one was called off because of rain earlier in the season.
