A superb all-round performance from Cameron White took Victoria to a 12-run win over Queensland in their ING cup clash at the Gabba.

After reeling at 2 for 11, White and David Hussey put on a record 205-run partnership off 192 balls, eclipsing the previous fourth-wicket record of 180 set by Shane Lee and Graeme Rummans in 1999-2000. Hussey, who was dropped on 57 and again on 78, hit 130 from 140 balls with White clobbering 85 off 87 to guide Victoria to their highest one-day score of 6 for 294.

In Queensland's reply, it was White to the fore again, snaffling 4 for 23 from six economical overs after Jimmy Maher (62) and Matthew Hayden (53) got off to a confident start in their 99-run opening partnership. Despite a blistering 46 from Brendan Nash and plucky hitting from the lower order, Queensland ran out of time to fall 12 runs short.
