Doesn't hold back when he is hoping, does Hussey? He hoped to bowl Wayamba out for 50 tonight. He hopes for rain in Chennai-Warriors game. But on a serious note, they seem to have done all that was in their hands. Of course they would have wanted to finish the chase sooner, but that was not an easy pitch out there. It's over to Chennai and Warriors now. Okay bye

Presentation
David Hussey: "At 88 for 2, we were thinking we were in deep deep trouble. Full credit to Peter Siddle and James Pattinson. I think we have got two future Test players there. James hits the deck rather hard. We would have loved to finish in the seventh-eight over. Hoping for rain in the other game."

Jehan Mubarak: "From a position of 80 for 2 to lose the rest of our wickets for 25 runs is very disappointing. Even today the wicket wasn't the greatest to bat on, but once you get in, there is value for shots. It is just a matter of application, which we seem to be lacking in."

Peter Siddle is the MoM. Sid says: "Probably didn't bowl that well at the start. Got frustrated with the bad balls. Got lucky with the change of ends. Blokes around me bowled really well."

So Wayamba become the fourth team to crash out. But more interesting is the impact on Victoria's net run-rate. This is a big win. Okay Victoria's net run-rate has gone up to 0.366, which is still well behind Warriors' 0.975. Let's just sort out the equation now for all three teams.

Victoria will want Warriors to win by any margin. Or Chennai to win by a fairly big margin, so that Warriors' net run-rate falls below Victoria's.

Warriors will go through f they win, or if they lose by a margin not big enough to take their net run-rate below Victoria's.

Chennai simply need to win. Even if they win in Super Over, they are through. If they lose, they are out

If that game washed out, Victoria and Warriors will go through

  • Nothing goes right for Wayamba

    Wayamba have looked unsure of themselves and their purpose, failing to replicate their terrific domestic form

  • 'It's out of our hands now' - Siddle

    Mahela Jayawardene's press conference was a bit like the match itself: done and dusted in less time than he would have needed to strap on his pads. Peter Siddle, however, had more to say
