Ryobi One-Day Cup - Elimination final

Victoria v New South Wales

New South Wales won by 4 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)

Hello and welcome to coverage of today's qualifying Final between New South Wales and Victoria. My name is Lawrie Colliver and I will be your commentator for today's big clash. Victoria has won the toss and elected to bat - 12th men are Steve O'Keefe (NSW) and Michael Hill (Vic). So Victoria have included two spinners in their eleven for today, with John Holland and Fawad Ahmed both playing. New South Wales have Nathan Lyon in as their spinner, with O'Keefe 12th man.

In the five games so far played at North Sydney in the Ryobi Cup, the team batting first has won 3 and lost 2. The winning scores were 8/305, 8/331 and 8/273, Losing scores were 253 and 8/311. So 300 looks to be par.

So the players are out on the ground in the lovely spring sunshine and we are about to get underway.
