full toss driven thru the covers and it runs away to the rope. The Blues win by 5 wickets.
A clinical five wicket win for New South Wales to cap a great week in Adelaide. They controlled the cahes well after a good start by Jaques and Hughes. Katich and Rohrer made composed half centuries to steer the Blues to victory.
Aaron O'Brien bowled beautifully for the Redbacks but he had little support. The Blues finish equal third on the table on points. The Redbacks have finished last.
Man of the match was Nathan Bracken for his 3 for 48 with the ball.
So that's it from the Adelaide Oval. NSW winners by 5 wickets. But niether of these sides will feature in Sunday's final. Join us from the MCG at 2pm AEDT on Sunday for the Ford Ranger Cup final. Talk to you then.
