Latest Commentary 

50th Over
That concludes our coverage with the Bushrangers 5 points clear at the top of the table with one game to play. The Redbacks have two games in hand so the host of the final is still to be decided. See you next time!
Plenty of outstanding performances, Callum Ferguson a ton, Fawad Ahmed with 3/47 on debut, Kane Richardson with 5/61 but John Hastings was the man of the match - 2/64 with the ball and a match winning unbeaten 69 from 57 with the bat.
But Hussey and Sheridan were dismissed with consecutive deliveries and the game looked lost. John Hastings though, continued to play his shots and got support from Boland initially, then Darren Pattinson who was a hero himself in that last over.
But Hussey remained out there and with support from Hill kept the Bushrangers in it. He then got brilliant support from John Hastings who played his own gem of an innings and they Bushrangers were suddenly favourites.
It didn't look likely after 30 overs of the match but they clawed back in it and held the Redbacks to 7/255. They then struggled with the bat early and when White was dismissed, had collapsed to be 4/60.
A cracking match of cricket, ebbs and flows throughout with the Commonwealth Bank Victorian Bushrangers getting up to win by two wickets with three balls to spare to qualify for the Ryobi One Day Cup final on February 27.
