WA Wins Back-to-Back Imparja Cups
Western Australia has won its second consecutive Imparja Cup, defeating Queensland by three runs in the last over of the final at Traeger Park in Alice Springs.   Just as it did in the 2014, it took WA until the final ball of the match to claim the Cup.   WA’s total of 5/94 looked an unlikely victory total as Queensland’s openers strode to the crease for the run chase. And at none for 45, the total looked within comfortable reach of Queensland.   But a Bevan Bennell w...
