What a finish to the match. Bulls captain Simpson very pleased with his boys but strruggling to really show his enjoyment.

Rimmington is named Man of the Match with his four for 40 off ten overs.

Cam White very disappointed with his troops and totally lost for words.

The Ford Ranger Man of the Series with 24 wickets is Shane Harwood.

The awards ceremony is currently taking place and there are only a few Queensland fans who have hung around to celebrate with their team.

On behalf of everyone here at Cricinfo, that concludes the Ford Ranger Cup for 2008/09, thanks for joining us throughout the competition. Our next live coverage comes from Junction Oval in Melbourne for the Sheffield Shield Final on March 13.
