edges it down to third man and Harwood races around cuts it off but they run three
The Tasmanians celebrate as they take the title ... and well done to them. They started the season with a big win against Queensland and have been the form side of the competition all season. It is Tasmania's third domestic one-day title and first since they won it back in 2004-05.
Victoria really took it to them and who would have thought it would be so close when Victoria were dismissed for just 158. It really didn't look enough. David Hussey top scored with 50, but the bowlers kept both teams in the match with regular wickets, Doherty's 4-18 and McGain's 3-11 showing how valuble spinners are even in wet conditions. Brett Geeves is named Man of the Match for his 3 for 28 and 6.
