103rd Over
Victoria will gain 2 points for their 1st innings victory
White bowled well on the final day here but North was the player of the day - and possibly the match with an unbeaten 118 off 314 balls.
So that's the end of the match with WA finishing up at 8/244 in their 2nd innings. They were well short of the required runs for victory and Victoria fell two wickets short of claiming victory also

Players and umpires are making their way out for the start of play.
Join us at 10.30am for the start of play!
I'd say only 2 outcomes are possible with Victoria needing 10 wickets to win, and the Warriors; requiring another 367 runs to win, will most likely play for a draw. Fawad Ahmed will be a very important player today - let's see if he can get a few wickets
It's a warm day here in Melbourne with clear skies so we will get a full day's play in. The track looks pretty good and the players are out going through their warm ups
Welcome to the final day of this exciting Sheffield Shield match between the Commonwealth Bank Bushrangers and the Alcohol. Think Again Warriors
With a day to play, the Warriors require 368 runs to win with all 10 wickets in the shed, the Bushrangers will be searching for 10 wickets. It's going to be a warm day and should be an exciting finish. Join us at 10:30 AET tomorrow. Cheers!
Chasing 381 to win, Bancroft survived a confident leg before shout and was hit on the helmet but other than that, the opening batsmen managed to survive without trouble.
So seven overs bowled by the Bushrangers to end the day and the Warriors have survived with all wickets intact. Another good day's cricket was had with the Bushrangers batting all but 28 minutes, reaching 8/338 and a lead of 380.
