The games was set up by Victoria's batting. Brad Hodge was outstanding and a clear Man of the Match with 139. David Hussey played beautifully for 93.

Tasmania were brave. Travis Birt's 97 was outstanding but ultimately 327 was too big a mountain to climb.

That's it from us at Bellerive where Victoria hve beaten Tasmania. Join us friday for the fourth ODI between Australia and Pakistan in Perth.
