Andrew Tye picked up a List A career-best of 6/46 against Queensland wrapping up an all-round win for Western Australia in the JLT One-Day Cup at Sydney on Friday.
Set a daunting target of 388 to win, after D'Arcy Short plundered a mammoth 257 off just 148 balls, Queensland could never really get into the game once Sam Heazlett was dismissed for 107.
The Queensland Bulls were 238/2 in 33 overs before they collapsed with Tye picking up the last five wickets and bundling the opposition out for 271, their last eight wickets dropping for just 33 runs. The 31-year-old Aussie's final spell read 5/14 in 3.2 overs with those five scalps coming in just 14 deliveries for a paltry 8 runs.
Tye's 6/46 came in 8.3 overs as Western Warriors won by 116 runs.
It was Tye's third five-wicket haul in the format. The Kings XI Punjab pacer has been in good form of late in the One Dayers, having picked up 15 wickets in just four matches for his team, who are unbeaten in the JLT One-Day Cup so far. Tye is yet to end a match with less than 3 wickets in the tournament so far.
