Jayde Herrick and Glenn Maxwell combined to run through Tasmania's top order and give Victoria the edge at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart. The pair picked up six wickets between them to reduce Tasmania to 67 for 6, before Alex Doolan stalled Victoria's charge with an unbeaten 73. Doolan was kept company by Luke Butterworth, who ended the day on 42 not out. Their unbroken stand stood at 103 at stumps, with Tasmania still 192 behind.
Earlier in the day, Victoria pushed on from 299 for 6 to 362, on the back of a century from Matthew Wade.

James Faulkner, Xavier Doherty and Evan Gulbis finished with three wickets each for Tasmania.
