That wraps up an easy win for the Warriors, 202 always looked too much for the Bulls to chase down given their relatively tame batting line-up. Tonight was all about Chris Gayle, his 92 off just 40 balls the difference between the two sides. The result means the Bulls are out of the competition, while the Warriors will play Tasmania on Thursday for a spot in the Preliminary Final. Thanks for your company tonight, please join Alex Malcolm on Thursday night for coverage of the Tas v WA match from 7pm local time. Good night
