Scorecard summary
Tasmania304/6(50 overs)
Victoria194/10(42.1 overs)

The players scramble to grab a stump as a momento of the game. Denton finishes with 5 wickets and Paine a hundred, what a final for the Tigers!

Not too many highlights for the Victorians, who were on the back foot right from the word go with Paine and Dighton's partnership.

The three stars for the Tigers Paine (100), Dighton (80) and Denton (5/45) all deserved the man of the match award, but it's been given to Tim Paine for his brilliant hundred that set the Tigers up to make a massive total in the first innings.

That's it from me, Andrew Fuss for another Ford Ranger Cup season, the Tigers crowned champions after some brilliant late season form.

I hope you've enjoyed our coverage this year, the Tigers about to receive their medals. For now, good night.
