Batting first after winning the toss earlier before the rain fell the Bulls set the Blues 111 to win with both sides knowing the loser would be out of the running for a place in the Big Bash Final.

Simpson was joined at the crease by Andrew Symonds and the pair put together a partnership of 37 before Simpson was bowled by Mitchell Starc for 34.
With only 5 overs remaining Symonds and new partner Lee Carseldine smashed the Bulls to a good total of 110 to put the pressure on the defending Big Bash champs.
