Scorecard
Pura Cup points table

Torrential rain washed out the final day of the high-scoring match between New South Wales and Victoria at Lismore. The umpires made an early decision to abandon the game that was almost certainly heading towards a draw when Victoria finished with a lead of 92 at the end of the third day.

Jason Arnberger was named Man of the Match for his unbeaten 239, which pushed the Bushrangers to 5 for 519, and Cameron White's four lower-order wickets guided them to first-innings points despite Matthew Phelps' 133 in the town of his birth. Victoria currently sit on 18 points with Queensland and are two behind New South Wales.

Victoria, who finished on 0 for 10 in their second innings, will face the Blues again on Saturday in the final of the domestic Twenty20 tournament at North Sydney Oval.
