87th Over
Presentations are underway and it looks as though the Bupa Shield Player of the Year goes to Ricky Ponting. The Man of the Match award goes to James Faulkner
In the final innings Chris Hartley (23*) and Michael Neser (18*) remained unbeaten whilst for the Tasmanians, Ben Hilfenhaus (2/58) and Luke Butterworth (2/30) were the main wicket takers.

There you have it. Great scenes as the Tasmanians embrace each other to celebrate a thoroughly deserved win and fitting send off for their coach Tim Coyle.
