Peter George delivered a remarkable victory for South Australia in Hobart, where they recovered from being bowled out for 55 in their first innings to win by 43 runs. Tasmania began the final day needing 77 more runs to win with five wickets in hand but when their captain George Bailey departed without adding to his overnight score of 77, it was game on.

Rob Cassell had Bailey trapped lbw and George proceeded to skittle the lower order, taking all of the remaining four wickets. Luke Butterworth made 20 and Jason Krejza managed 14, but the Tigers could only increase their overnight total by 33 before the final wicket fell, Krejza caught at slip to complete George's five-for.

George finished with 5 for 28 and took nine wickets for the match, continuing his love affair with Bellerive Oval, where in the corresponding game last year he collected 11 for the match. Cassell ended up with 4 for 58 in the victory, which was South Australia's first of the Sheffield Shield campaign.

I've bagged SA all season but hats off to them here; this shows they'll never stop fighting. George deserves the headline, but Blizzard, Cassell and Christian made awesome contributions as well. Tassie's middle-order is a serious worry; surprised they didn't sign another batsman in the off-season - several of the guys in VIC Premier cricket would be more than capable.

Great work guys, what a turnaround from that first innings. Good to get some points on the board!

I think its time to put Butterworth into the Aussie Team for 2nd Test
