South Australia 260 and 219 (Harris 50, Doherty 4-27, Faulkner 3-42) lost to Tasmania 361 and 2 for 300 declared by 182 runs
A brief rain delay was the major obstacle for Tasmania as the hosts completed a first outright victory of the season by 182 runs over South Australia on the final day of the Sheffield Shield match in Hobart.
Chasing a distant 402 to win, the Redbacks were given a sound start by Michael Klinger and Daniel Harris, but the rest fell away in abject fashion as Xavier Doherty and James Faulkner shared seven wickets between them, interrupted only by rain around the lunch interval.
The result pushes Tasmania up to fourth on the Shield table and only one outright win out of second spot, while SA are stranded at the bottom of the table with only two points from four matches.
