Kinross quick Chris Tremain and his Victorian teammates are looking to take home the first piece of domestic silverware for the 2018-19 season and head into the Sheffield Shield season with their tails up ahead of their one-day cup final on Wednesday.
The Bushrangers are already full of confidence after an upset 63-run win in the semi-final over Western Australia on Sunday to progress to the final at Junction Oval.
Tremain took two top-order wickets in the win, dismissing opener Josh Inglis and former teammate Marcus Stoinis on his way for 2-48 from seven overs to restrict Western Australia to 269.
He also hit 25 from 22 deliveries at the tail-end of Victoria’s innings to help the Bushrangers were all-out for 332 from 49.5 overs.
Victorian skipper Peter Handscomb said the semi-final was the first time side had put together a complete performance, and was hoping to boost the confidence of the side heading into the longer format with a win.
"We were confident and we have been all tournament, we just hadn't actually put it all together yet,” Handscomb said.
"So it's great to come into a semi-final and actually put it together.
"If we can win on Wednesday we'll go into the Shield [season] very confident."
