So, the Bulls get their first win of the tournament to put themselves right back in the hunt, with four teams now sitting at 1 win and 2 losses. A Brett Geeves hat-trick restricted the Bulls to 153 when it looked like they'd be pushing for 190. Paine started well but a middle order collapse thanks to some good bowling from Hopes and Harris. Not surprisingly, James Hopes has been named Man of the Match for his 50 and 3/33. Thanks for your company tonight, join us again on Sunday night from 7.45pm AEDT for Western Australia vs Victoria from the WACA. Good night
