An unbeaten Graeme Rummans century pushed Victoria to a lead of 419 on a contrasting second day of the Pura Cup match against Tasmania at Bellerive Oval.

On a wicket that had flattened after 20 wickets fell on the first day, Rummans, who reached his second first-class century, joined in partnerships of 166 with Brad Hodge and 135 with David Hussey as they batted Tasmania out of the game.

Adam Griffith, who took 7 for 54 yesterday, again caused the Bushrangers the most trouble and captured his first 10-wicket haul with 3 for 87. He had Brad Hodge, who was a reserve batsman on the Australia tour to India, caught behind for 96 and also dimissed Matthew Elliott and David Hussey.
