Redbacks batsman Alex Ross blasted a brilliant 110 on Friday at Hurstville Oval, including one humongous over off Lyon.

Ross took Lyon’s eighth over for 4, 6, 6, 4, 6, 6 - a whopping 32 runs.

Lyon ended up with figures of 2-88 off nine overs as South Australia amassed a huge total of 346.

Redbacks opener Jake Weatherald also reached triple figures with a classy knock of 103.

Fellow Test bowler Mitchell Starc made his long-awaited return from injury, snaring 1-55 from 10 overs.

Starc last played in the limited-overs Champions Trophy in England in June and had been dealing with a foot injury.

Watched by Australian coach Darren Lehmann, Starc struggled to find his rhythm in his first four-over spell which cost 25 runs.

He bowled two overs in a second spell and his last four at the end, having Weatherald caught behind in his seventh over.

"I got a few cobwebs out, I guess," Starc told reporters.

"It felt OK, a few crappy overs in the first spell, but I finished off OK ... the foot's good.

"I don't think I did too well in the first few spells but I did my job at the end. Apart from the first spell, I was pretty happy with it.

"I got through 10 overs perfectly fine today with no pain."

NSW opener Daniel Hughes scored the third century of the match in NSW's chase, but the Blues fell 45 runs short, bowled out for 301.
