It matters not. Victoria are the KFC Twenty20 Big Bash champions for the fourth time in five years! They win the final by 48 runs.

It was a superb performance by the Bushrangers. Dirk Nannes' figures of 4 overs 1 maiden 1 for 8 are the most economical in competition history. He and James Pattinson left the Redbacks reeling at 3 for 16. From there the Redbacks never stood a chance. Keiron Pollard fought hard for 44 but Andrew McDonald claimed him and two others to kill off the contest. Aiden Blizzard was Man of the Match for his 42 off 19 balls that set up the Bushrangers total.

That's it from us as far as the Big Bash is concerned. Congratulations to the Bushrangers for a wonderful victory. They continue their dominance of domestic cricket in Australia.
