NSW has fallen for it's lowest ever total as Aussie international Jhye Richardson ripped through the batting line-up with a swing bowling masterclass.
Western Australia dismissed NSW for 76 runs in just 21.4 overs in the Australia One-Day Cup after Richardson went some way in ripping through the top order.

Richardson returned personal career-best one-day figures of 4-24 off eight overs while Behrendorff took 3-17 of seven.
While the bowling was all class from Western Australia, Blues captain Kurtis Patterson would be kicking himself over choosing to bat first on a green top.
And it also wouldn't have taken him long to be regretting his call in the dressing room as NSW slumped to 6-20 in the ninth over.
A promising seventh wicket stand of 38 between Australian short-from representatives Daniel Sams (26 off 31 balls) and Sean Abbott (12 off 20) spared NSW from total embarrassment and added a little flesh to their skinny score.
The last four wickets added just 18 runs as Australian representatives Richardson and Behrendorff troubled all the batters with swing on a spicy wicket.
The innings hit the skids when NSW lost 3-0 in 10 balls.
The carnage started in the third over with Patterson (4) and Matthew Gilkes (0) bowled by Jhye Richardson in a double-wicket maiden.
Behrendorff chimed in by claiming a wicket in three successive overs.
He had Daniel Hughes (0) caught in the covers and bowled Moises Henriques (1) and Jack Edwards (3).
Richardson had Jason Sangha (0) caught of a pull shot.
Fans were quick to praise the swinging masterclass from the WA fast bowlers.
Unbelievable work, lads 👏
We've rolled NSW for 76 - the third-lowest score WA has conceded in a One-Day Cup game #MarshCup
Still work to be done, though! 💪 Tune in when the chase begins at 12:20pm.

Twelve of the first 20 runs in Perth were extras with seven leg byes and five wides.
Sams struck four boundaries and looked good until flashing at a Matthew Kelly delivery and was caught behind.
Abbott fell in the next over caught at slip by Cameron Bancroft off AJ Tye (2-17 off 3.4).
Nathan Lyon (11 off 16) was caught behind to give Richardson his fourth scalp and Tye dismissed Liam Hatcher (1) to end the Blues dismal batting effort, 16 runs short of their previous lowest one-day score of 92 back in 1972-73.
