The ongoing Marsh Cup 2019 - Australia's fifty-over domestic tournament, has already seen a number of players escape some serious injuries while playing. The latest one to join the list is Aussie pacer Wes Agar, who plays for South Australia. Agar survived a horrific injury scare during his side's encounter with Queensland at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.

The incident happened in the very first over of the Queensland innings when Agar was handed the ball to open the bowling attack for South Australia. The right-arm pacer slipped while bowling the second delivery after landing awkwardly which saw him sliding on the wrong foot. However, he managed to escape what could have been a nasty injury. A video of the incident was shared by Cricket Australia on Twitter.

Agar got up after falling down and continued to bowl. He bowled six overs in the game and finished with figures of 0/39. Queensland won the game comfortably beating South Australia by seven wickets.

Batting first in the game, South Australia were off to a poor start losing opener Callum Ferguson (13) cheaply before Jake Weatherald (44) and Jake Lehman (16) combined to post a 42-run stand for the second wicket. Tom Cooper then played a brilliant knock of 62 runs off 75 balls with Joe Mennie too playing an important cameo of 21-ball 31 to take South Australia to a decent total of 226 runs on the board in 48.5 overs.

Queensland top-order, in reply, made a mockery of the chase to wrap-up an easy win with 14.1 overs to spare. Openers Sam Heazlett (51) and Max Bryant (32) played two good knocks to get their team off to a strong start with a 43-run stand for the first wicket before Matthew Renshaw (52*) and Joe Burns (65*) scored unbeaten fifties to get their team over the line without breaking a sweat.
