South Australia, who qualified for the Champions League Twenty20, finished last in the FR Cup after falling to a five-wicket defeat by New South Wales. While the match had no bearing on the finalists - Victoria will host Tasmania at the MCG on Sunday - it was crucial in deciding the placings and the Blues avoided claiming the wooden spoon for the fourth season in a row.

Half-centuries to Simon Katich (55) and Ben Rohrer (63) made sure of the win as they passed the Redbacks' 7 for 243 with four overs to spare. Phil Jaques (40) and Phillip Hughes (33) set the platform during a 74-run stand in 10.4 overs and the Blues weren't really troubled after they departed.

South Australia opened with a 118-run partnership between Daniel Harris and Michael Klinger (50), but they were soon struggling after losing 5 for 39. Josh Hazlewood picked up Harris for 63 and Tom Cooper (0) in the same over as they both cut to Nathan Bracken at third man.

Bracken then collected a couple of his own wickets before returning late in the innings to remove Graham Manou after his 42 took them to a useful total. Bracken led the figures with 3 for 48 to continue his comeback from knee surgery.
