Victorian Bushrangers - Champions from downunder

The Victorian Bushrangers is an Australian cricket team based in Melbourne, that represents the state of Victoria.Victoria had won all three of the KFC Twenty20 Big Bash competitions which have been staged, losing just one match in the competition.

The Bushrangers are captained by Cameron White, though he has yet to produce an innings of substance at the international level he has a reputation to be a big hitter through out the KFC Twenty20 Bigbash circuit.Brad Hodge who has the most runs by any player in this format with 1600 runs under his belt at a great strike rate of over 135 is the Vice-captain of the side, has played 50 Twenty20 matches which is also the highest number of matches by any player in this format. Adding more strength to the batting lineup is David Hussey who played for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL.

They also have a very good bowling lineup with variety to assist these three hard hitting batsmens. Bryce McGain leads the spin bowling, as far as I know he is the most experienced spinner in Australian now.He will be very handy is the slow wickets of India.Peter siddle who made his test debut recently got accalades from all quaters for his superlative performance in the India-Australia series. When experienced bowlers like bret lee and stuart clark struggled he bowled with passion and heart. If he repeats his performance Victorian bushrangers bowling lineup will be strong.

Victorians are starting Champions League as one of the favourites for the trophy.They are certainly dynamites to watch out for in this explosive Twenty20 format of the game.
