And that's the victory for the Warriors! An important one for their confidence and self-belief after what has been a season filled with disappointment. Unfortunately for Butterworth, the hero with the bat, he went for 74 off 8.5 overs today and was probably the difference in the end as the rest of the attack bowled reasonably well. Marcus North finished on 104 not out off 101 balls in a special captain's knock which led his young guns to a great win. Porter's 36 not out off 31 was vitally important at the death to get their side home. Marcus North has been named the Man of the Match with his scintillating match-winning hundred. On behalf of the crew here at Cricinfo, this is Marc Ellison saying thanks for joining us today and we look forward to your company again soon.
