Butterworth bowls Tasmania to innings win

ESPNcricinfo staff

Tasmania 448 beat Western Australia 67 and 263 (Whiteman 96, Voges 94*, Butterworth 5-50) by an innings and 118 runs

Luke Butterworth's second five-wicket haul of the summer set up an innings victory for Tasmania over Western Australia in Hobart, where fighting performances from Adam Voges and Sam Whiteman were not enough to rescue the Warriors. After Western Australia's disastrous first-innings 67, they were dismissed in the second for 263, leaving them 118 runs short of making the Tigers bat again.

The opener Whiteman made a career-best 96 and the captain Voges finished unbeaten on 94, but only two other Warriors reached double figures. Marcus North made 33 and the No.11 Michael Hogan scored 14, while the recalled Shaun Marsh managed only 2 to add to his 11 from the first innings.

Butterworth picked up 5 for 50 and shot up to second on this season's Shield wicket tally, behind his team-mate Jackson Bird.

    With Australia needing bowleras Siddle can not do it on his own why not look at Butterworth. He could have filled in for Watto better than Quiney with bat and ball. Just think for the tests against Srilanka having four front line bowlers, Watson and Butterworth (in for Ponting). Thanks Ponting you were one of the best we ever had but time is up. What a bowling line up that would be.
