Victoria have won the Sheffield Shield. That have won this game by 457 runs. They retain their Sheffield Shield final.

Queensland soundly beaten today. They were never going to chase 640. Lee Carseldine fought hard for 75 but the rest folded.

Bryce McGain took 4 for 70, Hastins 3 for 25.

Another brilliant season by the Bushrangers. They won the KFC big bash and the Shield and finished second in the Ford ranger Cup. They are the dominant team in Australian domestic cricket.

Matthew Wade has been named Man of the Match for his fantastic 96 on day 1 that dug Victoria out of a hole.

Back to back titles for Victoria. That is it from Cricinfo for this domestic summer in Australia. Thanks for your company. We'll see you again next season.
