AARON Finch and David Hussey hit blistering hundreds as Victoria pulled off the greatest run chase in domestic limited overs history, overhauling 350 for victory against NSW at North Sydney Oval on Sunday.

In reply to the Blues' 350 all out, Victoria cruised to 4-352 with 20 balls remaining at the picturesque but small ground on a wicket tailor-made for batting, with both Finch and Hussey scoring 140.

Finch, faced 124 balls, smashing the hapless NSW attack all over the ground in a knock that included 10 sixes and eight fours.

He was joined by Hussey, who faced just 82 balls and smashed the winning runs off Sean Abbott over the mid-wicket boundary after an undefeated innings including eight sixes and 10 fours.

Despite the magnitude of the target, Victoria always looked a chance of bettering the record run chase of 318 achieved by NSW against it at the same venue last season. And the 156-run third wicket stand between Finch and Hussey ensured that it did. Any chance NSW might have had after Finch was dismissed by Moises Henriques (2-66 off 11) in the 38th over was blasted away by Hussey. ''I was lucky enough to hit a few in the middle,'' Hussey said.

''I was very happy but probably more happy with what Aaron Finch did up top.

''It's a small ground and if you can get a bit of a roll on you can build a big score and the start we had with Chris Rogers (26 off 29) and Aaron Finch was sensational.''

A typically hard-hitting 92 from Steve Smith had steered NSW to a formidable total. Smith's 68-ball innings, that included 10 fours and three sixes, had NSW eyeing off 400 before it lost 6-68 at the tail end as the Bushrangers bowlers did well to limit the home side after a series of dropped catches.

Despite an opening stand of 82 between Brad Haddin and Scott Henry, the NSW innings began relatively leisurely after the Blues were sent in. But after Haddin fell to John Hastings for 35 in the 18th over, pinch hitter Sean Abbott upped the ante considerably.

Abbott smashed 40 off just 16 balls before he fell to the bowling of Jayde Herrick in the 23rd over with NSW at 3-141, after Henry fell the previous over to Scott Boland for 61 off 72.
