50th Over
One more game to be played between these two sides, they will meet at the MCG on Wednesday, where the Victorian XI will likely field a stronger side and look for a clean sweep of these warm up matches. See you next time.
Wickets fell regularly enough after Keath was dismissed but Carters powered on to a century and despite his dismissal, he'd done enough to all but secure victory. It was left to the captain Holland to see the Victorian XI side home.
The run chase started off well as it needed to, Stoinis and Russ scoring at a run a ball. Russ and Stoinis fell 7 overs apart, then Carters and Keath proceeded to up the run rate, scoring at more than run a ball.
A fabulous finish to this match, the Victorian XI side have chased down the England Lions total of 4/335 to win by 4 wickets with 2 deliveries to spare, a thrilling match here at the Junction Oval. They claim their second win over the England Lions.
