All but 12 of Corbin’s 72 from 53 balls were in boundaries and he shared a Marooners record opening stand of 109 with left-hander Kjorn Ottley to help them successfully chase a target of 205 for a victory that gave them their first regional title at the third time of asking.

Left-hander Nicholas Kirton formalised the result with 74 balls remaining, when he pulled a short ball from Romario Shepherd to the wide long-on boundary for four, sparking jubilant scenes among the Maroooners faithful.
