Vics grab Big Bash

It was a sweet victory when Victoria beat South Australia in the Big Bash Twenty20 final by 48 runs at the Adelaide Oval.

The Bushrangers were missing five first choice players in Cameron White, Dwayne Bravo, Clint McKay, Peter Siddle and Ross Taylor and I thought that it was going to be another beating from the red hot Redbacks.

The Redbacks had earlier this month beaten the Bushrangers by 91 runs at the Adelaide Oval.

The Vics batted first and got a good total of 166 and it was good that when the Redbacks went in to bat they lost a wicket from the first ball.

I think the key for Victoria was Aiden Blizzard's unbeaten 42 from 19 balls because that got the total to figure that could be defended.

I think this year's Big Bash has been a huge success and I think its due to the reasonable pricing and the inclusion of imports in the teams.

Cricket Australia did well to come up with a price of $10 per person or $25 per family and I think because of that it was easy to make a decision to go and watch the Big Bash matches.

Also the inclusion of foreign stars was a big hit as that proved also another attraction.

Its good to see the Bushrangers winning the competition which means they are able to go the Cricket Champions League again and lets hope that this time they will emulate New South Wales and bring that trophy home.
