Unbeaten across their first four matches, the Warriors have an unassailable lead at the top of the ladder but will be intent on carrying momentum into the semi-finals at the end of the week.
Tasmania has also secured a spot in the semi-finals, with the Tigers’ hold on second-place cemented after Victoria’s loss to South Australia on Sunday.
The match sees the tournament’s two highest run-scorers face-off, with Ben McDermott leading the way for Tasmania (303 at 101.00) and D’Arcy Short (297 at 99.00) doing the same for Western Australia.
Both men will be looking to carry on where they left off. McDermott registered his second century of the season in Tasmania’s last game against South Australia, while Short made headlines around the country on Thursday by blasting the highest List A score in Australian history.
The big-hitting all-rounder helped himself to 257 runs against Queensland, clobbering a world record 23 sixes along the way. Ominously for Tasmania, that performance came at Hurstville Oval.
