MATCH RESULT: Victorian Bushrangers 219 (McKay 65, Behrendorff 4/29) & 5/171 (Wade 50*, Behrendorff 3/24) df. Western Warriors 248 (North 87, McKay 2/49) & 138 (Johnson 40*, Pattinson 4/42) by 5 wickets. Points: VIC 6, WA 2. MOM: Clint McKay (VIC).
Clint McKay is the man of the match with a terrific all around match, hitting 65 off 51 balls to lift the Bushrangers up to 219 and taking five wickets overall, three in the Warriors' second innings. Thanks for your company throughout. See you next time!
They did that with several big overs, two off them off Beer's bowling that first eased the pressure and then broke the shackles completely, Wade reaching his 50 as the pair added 71 to see the Bushrangers home.
But they suffered a mini collapse, losing 3/2 in 15 deliveries, with Rogers and Finch given out leg before and Hussey spooning a catch to mid off. The run rate slowed as Wade and Keath had to steady the ship.
At lunch they were going along comfortably at 2/58 having bowled the Warriors out for 138 earlier in the morning and leaving themselves 168 to get. And with the score at 2/97 they were in sight of a comfortable victory.
And so the Commonwealth Bank Victorian Bushrangers have claimed their third outright win of the season, a five wicket win that at one stage didn't look likely.

Lunch Day Three: Western Warriors 248 (North 87, McKay 2/49) & 138 (Johnson 40*, Pattinson 4/42) vs Commonwealth Bank Victorian Bushrangers 219 (McKay 65, Behrendorff 4/29) & 2/58 (Hussey 21*, Johnson 1/17). Bushrangers require 110 runs to win.
So the Bushrangers require 110 runs to win and the Warriors 8 wickets. The Bushrangers look comfortable enough but the wicket is still offering up assistance and the ball has dominated so far. Join us at 13:30 AET for the all important second session.
And in reply, both Rogers and Hussey have steadied things after Handscomb was cleaned up by an inswinger from Johnson and White threw his wicket away with a simple catch to Beer at mid on off Behrendorff's bowling.
They've dominated the first session this morning, taking the final five Warriors wickets to dismiss them for a paltry 138. Pattinson again bowled superbly and Herrick cleaned up the tail with Johnson threatening to lift the target closer to 200.
We've reached lunch on day three and the Commonwealth Bank Victorian Bushrangers are closing in on victory, requiring a further 110 runs to win this match.
