A great match in the end as the Blues get up by five wicket with two balls to spare. Phil Hughes played a great innings and paced the chase perfectly. He was strong through point and third man, scoring more than half of his runs through that region and the Bulls bowlers simply had no answers for him. Doug Bollinger was the pick of the bowlers for the Blues with three for 22 from four overs Phil Hughes deservedly picks up the Man of the Match award Well, on behalf of the crew here at Cricinfo, thank you for joining us, this is Marc Ellison saying good night and see you soon. Join us in two days time on Sunday night for our next match the Redbacks and the Warriors.
