Very empty feeling there for both teams. Both would definitely feel they should have won it. The Blues after a blistering start by Warner, then the Tigers after the Blues needed 13 off the last over with Hilfenhaus bowling.

An enthralling match, with two standout innings from Dighton and Warner, the latter being harshly given out LBW on 97 when he was poised to score the fastest ever centruy in Australian ODD cricket.

Not surprisingly David Warner has been named Man of the Match after 97 off just 54 balls. That 97 coming off a 165 against the Tigers last week.

That result puts the Tigers into second position and the Blues stay second to bottom.

Thanks for your company today, be sure to visit again on Wednesday when South Australia hosts Tasmania from the beautiful Adelaide Oval. Good evening and good bye.

Hilfenhaus to Bird, 3 runs
backs away and drives over mid on, slices the shot and doesn't quite make it to the boundary, fielded just a foot short and they scurry through for three, incredible finish - it's a tie!

Now it's all on Bird's shoulders. He didn't have a good game with the ball, can he redeem himself?
