David Hussey's Victorian Bushrangers kept their hopes of a place in the semi-finals of the Champions League Twenty20 alive following a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over the Wayamba Eleven of Sri Lanka in Centurion, South Africa on Monday.

A victory was vital for both sides as they looked to keep alive their hopes of reaching the semi-finals.

In the second over of the match, James Pattinson struck with his first ball of the tournament, yorking Jeevantha Kulatunga for his second successive duck.

Then, two balls later, Mahela Udawatte was run out in spectacular fashion by Clint McKay's direct hit and Wayamba were suddenly nine for two after two overs.

However, the Victorians hit back with a vengeance. Andrew McDonald prised Mubarak out after the captain made 44 with a slow off-cutter in the 11th over with the score on 81, Hussey taking the catch.//Dirk Nannes wrapped things up by uprooting Ajantha Mendis' middle stump and Wayamba were all out for just 106 in the 17th over.

It wasn't a big enough total to trouble the Bushrangers, despite Brad Hodge and wicketkeeper Matt Wade losing their wickets early on.

Hussey hit two sixes and four fours, with Finch supporting with a six and four fours of his own. The captain, appropriately, hit the winning runs and the Victorians passed the winning post with eight wickets and more than six overs to spare. Hussey must now hope for a Warriors win over the Chennai Super Kings in the final league game to gain a place in the last four.
