Tigers shut down Redbacks

ESPNcricinfo staff

Tasmania 8 for 212 (Cowan 91*, Richardson 3-43) beat South Australia 169 (Cooper 66) by 48 runs (Duckworth-Lewis method)

Tasmania surged to a 48-run victory over South Australia in a rain-shortened domestic one-day match in Burnie, as Ed Cowan and Ben Hilfenhaus made striking contributions.

Cowan's 91 at No. 3 allowed the Tigers to set a decent target despite the loss of regular wickets, and the total was bolstered a little more by Duckworth-Lewis calculations.

SA's reply was unsettled the moment the visitors lost the captain Michael Klinger to Hilfenhaus, and regular wicket ensured they would never mount a serious chase despite 66 for the in-form Tom Cooper.

Hilfenhaus finished with four wickets while Xavier Doherty managed two.

    Haven't seem him bat live but Tom Cooper should move to NSW so he can pick up his baggy green. Warner getting a test berth is a joke.

    Why the hell do tassie insist on playing everyone BUT Luke Butterworth? I know he's a four--day specialist but it's ridiculous that he isn't playing.
