Twenty20 Big Bash

Victoria v New South Wales

Victoria won by 6 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

Welcome to Cricinfo's continuing coverage of the KFC T20 big bash with Victoria hosting NSW at the MCG. This is a replay of last years final. NSW has won the toss and Moises Henriques had no hesitation in batting. There is a huge crowd expected at the MCG. For Victoria Ross Taylor is unavailable until the finals and Rob Quiney has been ommitted. Aaron Finch comes in, Matthew Wade will open, and Glenn Maxwell a 21yro off-spinning all-rounder makes his Victorian debut. Conditions are very cool at the MCG. There was rain in Melbourne yesterday. There is a good crowd in already. The winner of this clash will go top of the table and put themselves in finals contention.
