Victoria continued to recover from their disastrous start to the season, with an emphatic win against Tasmania, making it two on the trot, after having suffered reversals in their first three games.

Tasmania's call to field first ran into rough weather quickly as Rob Quiney and Aaron Finch rolled along to fluent half-centuries in raising an opening-wicket stand of 119. Finch hit eight fours in his 65, while Quiney reached the boundary seven times and cleared it a couple of times while making 72. With the platform in place, the middle order went after the bowling, with David Hussey smiting fives sixes and four fours in 76 off 48 balls. Brad Hodge weighed in with a chirpy 41 and the lower middle order contributed some quick cameos to set up Victoria's final score of 6 for 321.

Tasmania's chase got off to a poor start with Nick Kruger being run out for a diamond duck. His opening partner Rhett Lockyear was also run out early, and the chase was as good as over when Glenn Maxwell and Clint McKay struck once apiece in their opening spells. James Faulker fought back with a half-century, before a free-spirited Tom Triffitt (72 off 50) reduced the margin of defeat. Jayde Herrick made four breaches through the middle order, as Tasman subsided for 247 in the 47th over.
