A late collapse from an inexperienced South Australia side saw their domestic one-day cup match against Western Australia in Perth finish in a dramatic tie.

South Australia were cruising to victory at 4-204 in pursuit of WA's 9-242, only to lose their way and be bowled out with eight balls remaining as their final four wickets fell for 11 runs.

Jake Lehmann (35) seemed set to steer the Redbacks home before being ninth man out.

Alex Carey top scored for SA with 75, while fellow opener and debutant Jake Weatherald was the other key contributor, crashing 41 in a dashing 35-ball knock.

Nathan Rimmington bowled WA back into the match with an inspired spell of 4-34.

Western Australia were restricted by South Australia's raw bowling attack who collected a steady stream of wickets throughout the innings.

WA captain and Australian Test batsman Adam Voges looked in form during his knock of 51, while four of his teammates made starts only to fall in the 30s.
