Tremain, Boland bowl Victoria to big win

Victoria 6 for 510 dec and 2 for 105 dec beat New South Wales 225 and 192 (Hughes 54, Tremain 3-31, Boland 3-39) by 198 runs

Chris Tremain and Scott Boland delivered a big win for Victoria over New South Wales on the final day at the SCG, where the Blues were bowled out for 192 in their chase of 391.

Tremain and Boland finished with three wickets each and spinner Jon Holland picked up two as Victoria wrapped up victory by 198 runs.

New South Wales had resumed at 1 for 39 on the final day, but on a pitch on which plenty of deliveries were staying low, batting did not prove easy.

Opener Daniel Hughes top scored with 54 before he was bowled by Holland, and Australia captain Steven Smith managed only 16 before being bowled by Tremain.

There was some resistance from Moises Henriques (37 not out) and Nic Maddinson, who made 33 on the day of his call-up into the Test squad, but Victoria were never seriously troubled in their push for victory.
