It was Khawaja who misfielded, after last over he made an incredible save on the boundary line.

Brilliant game of cricket all round. Tait or Bird for man of the match. For mine it's Bird, changed the direction of the match when the Redbacks appeared to be cruising.

Tait has been awarded man of the match after a scintilating five wicket haul in the first innings.

It's been a great game of cricket, I hope you enjoyed CricInfo's coverage of this Ford Ranger Cup game. Another final over result!

Join me, Andrew Fuss, again on Friday for the clash between Western Australia and Tasmania at the WACA from 3pm AEDT. Goodbye for now.

Pressure on the new batsman, Mark Cleary. Didn't do particularly well with the ball, can he redeem himself?
