Victoria's victory today has given them an outstanding chance of qualifying for the semi-finals. Bangalore's campaign has been hit badly, not only do they not have any points, their net run-rate would have also taken a hammering.
Andrew McDonald is the Man of the Match for his spell off 4 for 21 that pulled back Bangalore's fast start. Victoria are now sitting pretty with four points, Bangalore have none. Thanks for all the emails today, hope you've had fun. Cheers.
