Scorecard summary
Victoria107/8(15 overs)
Tasmania108/1(11.3 overs)

Great win for the Tigers. They bowled and fielded brilliantly to restrict the Bushrangers to 8 for 107 and then Wells and Bailey have raced to the victory target in just 11.3 overs.

Wells played really well as a stand-in opener for the absent Tim Paine. His 51no off 33 balls featured some outstanding strokeplay and he was supported firstly by Rhett Lockyear and then by the skipper George Bailey.
