A smooth ride to the final for NSW, who made a mockery out of what promised to be a closely-fought fixture. Their batsmen came up trumps in conditions that are far from ideal for batting, and their bowlers restored the trend of low scores on this track by making best use of the conditions on offer. Victoria faltered from the outset; Hauritz's introduction into the attack as early as the second over proved a masterstroke. Henriques then stymied the middle order with three wickets to completely shut out Victoria. The opening stand was crucial to NSW's imposing score, and Warner might just be named the Man of the Match. We'll see, in just a bit at the presentation.

Warner is the Man of the Match: "We knew the deck is going to be slow and low and we decided to come out hard. We tried to hit it as straight as possible and aim at the sightscreen. We were targeting 150-160 and we knew it was going to be hard to chase."

White: "Totally outplayed by a very good outfit. They played well up front, especially in those first six overs. The pitch played a little better, but still a disappointing result. 3 for 3 was not the start we wanted. The future of this tournament is strong, it was a great experience for us."

Katich: "It was a great allround team effort, Warner and Hughes set the tone. All our bowlers were outstanding. We tried to keep the left-right combination going, and the ball got softer which made it difficult to score in the end. Hauritz did a great job with that new ball, some spun, some skidded on. Our bowlers have been great, a reason why we haven been able to come this far. They've been consistent throughout."

That's all we have from here folks. Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. Join us again tomorrow, as T&T take on Cobras in Hyderabad. The pitch there has been an excellent one for batting throughout this tournament, and we should be in for a bit more entertainment. Until then, on behalf of everyone at Cricinfo, this is Sid Talya signing off. Adios, be well!
