Burrage was named captain of the 13-player squad before it flew out for the eight-day tournament late last week.

The players received their caps from former Australian batsman and Western Warriors coach Justin Langer, who took time out from the Warriors’ Sheffield Shield clash against NSW to present the players their caps individually.

In last Sunday’s opening 94-run victory over Tasmania, Burrage scored 29 with the bat and took 2-13 from five overs.

He then starred in Monday’s 29-run win over NSW, top scoring with 57 before following up to claim 2-27 from seven overs with the ball. On Tuesday he took 1-21 from eight overs as WA held SA to 8-152 and scored 26 as they chased down the total with more than 10 overs and five wickets to spare.

WA played Queensland in their final group game yesterday before the semi-finals today and Sunday’s final.
