A resilient knock from Dan Christian on the final day kept Victoria undefeated in the Sheffield Shield, as the Bushrangers held on for a draw in Tasmania.

Christian smashed 79 from 176 as Victoria fell to 8/319 at the end of day four, as rain ended play with five overs remaining with the ladder leaders just one wicket from losing (Paceman John Hastings reportedly was injured and wouldn't have batted) - but also 42 runs from victory.

Test paceman Jackson Bird took five wickets for the match as he looks to hold out South Australian Chadd Sayers for the position of third seamer in the Test team.
