Redlands powered to the winning total of 3-324, passing Norths' total of 6-323 with 7.4 overs to spare.

The recent glut of runs in the Bulls Masters Premier Cricket competition continued unabated, with the Vikings reaching 323, a total that captain Kendel Fleming later conceded was probably short of where they needed to be.

Test opener Joe Burns (a composed 55 off 64 balls), his Queensland Bulls batsman Nathan McSweeney (115 off 121) and Tom Healy (68 off 63) all got scores of note as they peppered Allan Border Field and its surrounds.

Redlands shrugged off the early loss of Queensland wicket-keeper Jimmy Peirson and Test trump Marnus Labuschagne to stamp their authority on the run chase with a brutal batting onslaught led by prodigal son Simon Milenko, back with the club after playing with Tasmania and the Hobart Hurricanes for several seasons, classy left-hander Sam Heazlett and the bankable Leigh Drennan.

Milenko blasted 82 off just 38 balls while Heazlett was unbeaten on 137 off 119 balls as he and Drennan (93no off 91 balls) simply blew their opposition away.

Under pressure from the batting blitz, Norths provided the Redlands batsmen with some lives in the field, an opportunity that the Tigers did not miss.
