The Konica Minolta Queensland Fire defeated the Western Fury by 8 wickets with 14 balls to spare. Thanks for reading and we'll do it again soon. Cheers.
Queensland Fire 2/100 (17.4) - Bulow 60*(53), Fields 36*(44) defeated Western Fury 7/99 (20) - Wallace 28(39), Graham 24(35). Points - QLD 2, WA 0.
The Final will be played at Etihad Stadium before the KFC Big Bash League match between the Melbourne Renegades and the Brisbane Heat. NSW have secured their spot, and if Victoria lose tomorrow to the ACT, then Queensland will qualify.
