Western Australia brought an end to a 23-year drought by clinching the coveted Sheffield Shield at the famous WACA ground in Perth on Monday, April 4. The summit clash against Victoria ended in a draw at Lunch on the fifth day when even the faintest ray of hope for the visitors had died down. The result meant Perth-based sides completed a sweep of Australia's domestic trophies this season.

Brief Scores: Western Australia 386 & 400/7 (Aaron Hardie 174*, Sam Whiteman 123; Scott Boland 2-35) drew with Victoria 306.
