The Bushrangers yesterday clinched their 31st Sheffield Shield title, following a draw with South Australia in Alice Springs.

Having finished on top of the table after the regular season, Victoria needed only a draw two clinch the title.

South Australia finished the final day on 6-236, after being set 524 runs to win in 69 overs.

Leg spinner Jon Holland was awarded man of the match honours, with an eight wicket haul.

Rob Quiney, Dan Christian and Fawad Ahmed are the only players to feature in all three title wins.

The win sees Victoria become just the fifth team in 124 years to claim the three-peat.

Victoria’s win was set up by a century to Marcus Harris in the first innings and valuable knocks from Travis Dean (94) and James Pattinson (80), as the Vics put on 487.

Holland then took seven wickets, as the Rebacks were bowled out for 287 in their first dig.

Victoria then essentially batted South Australia out of the game, scoring 323 in the second innings, with only two sessions left to play on the last day.
