Sheffield Shield - Final

Victoria v Queensland

Match drawn

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200

Hello and welcome to Junction Oval in Melbourne for the 2008/09 Sheffield Shield Final. I'm Marc Ellison and I will be talking you through each delivery over the next five days. Victorian skipper Cam White has won the toss and elected to bat on a flat and docile looking track. In team news, Dan Doran comes in as another spin bowling option for Queensland. On the whole, Queensland's bowling looks a bit thin with a lack of experience which could have an influence on the outcome. However, their batting looks very strong. The Victorian side looks rather formidable with Nannes, Harwood and McKay to lead the attack and Rogers, Hodge and Hussey to do the majority of the batting. The national anthem has just been completed and all is in readiness now for the first ball to be bowled. Overhead conditions and rather humid and so we could see some early swing. Queensland have to make the most of the new ball, particularly with the Bulls having to win the match outright to take the title.
