Tasmania 6 for 274 (Cowan 75, Cosgrove 61, Bailey 50) beat South Australia 183 (Cooper 56, Doherty 3-20) by 91 runs
Half-centuries to Ed Cowan, Mark Cosgrove and George Bailey set up Tasmania's convincing 91-run victory over South Australia in Adelaide. The Tigers batted first and Cosgrove's 61 was followed by Cowan's strong 75 before Bailey provided a surge of 50 from 32 balls to push them to 6 for 274.
South Australia were quickly in trouble, dropping to 3 for 23 after six overs, and after their first bat were struggling at 4 for 77. Tom Cooper, who was unbeaten on 44 at the break, added another 12 before falling to James Faulkner and Tasmania kept breaking through.
Xavier Doherty, the left-arm spinner, took the new ball and was rewarded with 3 for 20 off seven overs, while Faulkner, Luke Butterworth and Brendan Drew picked up two each. The bowling highlight for the hosts was three wickets for Ben Edmondson, who was picked up from Western Australia in the off-season.
