cuts it late to thirdman for the winning runs.
Victoria win by 7 wickets, a comprehensive win. A wonderful unbeaten partnership of 157 runs between Hodge and White to get them through after some early stutters. Hodge picks up the Man-of-the-Match award for his unbeaten knock of 119. Victoria move into second place on the table with 5 points clear of South Australia and Queensland.
