Tasmania put up some fight on the final day at the MCG but could not prevent a 113-run Victoria win as Scott Boland and Chris Tremain picked up three wickets each. Chasing 365 for an unlikely win, the Tigers began the day on 3 for 19 and were eventually dismissed in the final session for 251, Peter Siddle and Jon Holland finishing with two wickets each.

George Bailey (47) and nightwatchman Andrew Fekete (30) proved to be the initial obstacles for Victoria, before James Faulkner led a fighting lower-order effort with 78. Faulkner and Simon Milenko (43) put on 64 for the eighth wicket but could not avoid the inevitable, Faulkner the last man out to the bowling of Tremain.
