The final match of the 5 ODI series had it all. Hawkheadquarters.com won the toss, and batted first.

Fishlipps.no-ip.org struggled badly on the Perth pitch, having lost 5 wickets in the first 10 overs. All hope looked lost, until djay6 and shazzziam worked together to build a partnership which lasted 12 overs. djay6 was bowled for 45.
The tail wagged, with Kille, Wackaloony and river_mouse all sticking around, and making scores in the 10's. shazzziam's unbeaten 81, which earned her the man of the match award, was not enough to save the team from defeat though, with the last wicket falling on a score of 222. Fishlipps.no-ip.org lasted 43 overs at the crease, a feat which nobody thought possibly when the team was 5/58.
