Mark Cosgrove and Darren Lehmann continued their excellent form to power South Australia to a convincing seven-wicket win over Victoria at Adelaide.

After losing the toss and fielding first, Shaun Tait blasted out four batsman, with Cullen Bailey grabbing three wickets, as South Australia restricted Victoria to 222 from 47.5 overs. This represented somewhat of a recovery having been reduced to 6 for 115 in the 30th over. Andrew McDonald (47) and Adam Crosthwaite (43) both struck breezy innings before Tait mopped up the tail.

In reply, Shane Deitz fell early for 11 and Greg Blewett was bowled by McDonald for 19, but Lehmann and Cosgrove steadied the ship with an excellent partnership of 82. Cosgrove, in prime form, smashed ten fours in his 90-ball 89, while Lehmann sped to an unbeaten 80 from 70 deliveries to help South Australia gain the vital bonus point. This win puts them in second place behind leaders New South Wales.
