Tye becomes WA's leading one-day wicket-taker

Andrew Tye has surpassed Kade Harvey as Western Australia's leading wicket-taker in one-day cricket.

Tye claimed his 104th wicket when Nathan McAndrew fell as the last wicket in the South Australian innings caught in the deep by Joel Paris.

The 35-year-old averages 21.14 in List A matches since making his debut in 2013. Harvey followed by Jo Angel, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Tom Moody round out top five.

Tye claimed 2-53 from his 10 overs as the visitors posted 6-266 from their 50 overs.

WA survived a late collapse to surpass the total eight down in the penultimate over.

Josh Inglis was named player of the match after scoring a better than a run a ball 85 (70).

Fellow wicketkeeper Josh Phillipe also scored a half-century (55 from 61 balls). Phillipe is the leading run scorer in the competition some 78 runs from his nearest rival.

WA are undefeated in the one-day cup competition after five matches.
