Victoria won by 7 wickets (with 20 balls remaining)
Player Of The Match

A comprehensive win for Victoria. Both home teams have been beaten over the last couple of days. The pitch wasn't a great one, keeping low but Victoria managed their chase well. Just 99 to get, and the innings from Quiney eased the burden significantly off the batsmen to follow. Delhi will be disappointed, their batsmen failed to live up to their reputation. I expect McKay to be given the Man-of-the-Match award but we'll wait and see. Join us in a bit for the presentation. Quite a few e-mails asking why Sangwan wasn't brought on. True, given that seamers had a ball bowling on this pitch, he should have been given a go.

Gambhir: "We need to keep winning from now. Hopefully, we can turn it around. We were looking for 130-140, but we just didn't bat well."

White: "We very pretty nervous and pumped up. We played pretty well, we can get a bit better in a couple of areas. We bowled very well, and to restrict Delhi for under 100 was a good effort"

McKay is Man of the Match: "It's a great country to tour and a great place to play cricket. It all worked out well today, and there were people like Siddle who gave me plenty of advise."

That's all from us, folks. Thanks for joining us and sending your feedback. We'll be back tomorrow for another double-header, and lets hope, for entertainment's sake, they'll turn out to be more closely fought than the games we witnessed today. Until then, it'd goodbye from Sid Talya and the rest of us here at Cricinfo. Adios!
