During the match, only three wickets fell on the final day, resulting in a draw. Labuschagne was dismissed for duck in the first innings and was not able to spend much time at the crease in the second innings.

This match was affected by rain and bad light, making it difficult to achieve a result. Queensland captain Khawaja expressed disappointment over the lost opportunities and the conditions affecting the game.

Despite the draw, WA captain Sam Whiteman was pleased with his team’s performance and looks forward to heading into the Big Bash break with three wins out of six matches.
