Tasmania 215 for 8 (Dighton 48) v Western Australia 6 for 0 - no result

Tasmania's ING Cup meeting with Western Australia was washed out in second over of WA's run-chase, as thunder and lightning brought the match to an abrupt end. It was just as well for Tasmania, who had been made to struggle after winning the toss and batting first, although their effort was interrupted in mid-innings by the first bout of bad weather.

All of Tasmania's top seven reached double figures, but none were able to dig in for the big score - the best effort of the innings was Michael Dighton's 48. They were kept in check by some persevering bowling efforts , in particular Paul Wilson, whose eight overs failed to take a wicket but went for just 20 runs.

After the match had been reduced to 48 overs a side, WA were set 216 for victory. But there were already menacing banks of clouds looming as the innings got underway, and the heavens opened after 12 deliveries had been bowled.
