Tasmania 8 for 192 (Faulkner 66, Gulbis 57, Hogan 4-37) defeated Western Australia 107 (Faulkner 4-32, Gulbis 4-37) by 85 runs
Stunning allround displays from James Faulkner and Evan Gulbis lifted Tasmania to a comprehensive defeat of Western Australia in a low-scoring domestic limited overs match in Burnie.
Batting first after winning the toss, the Tigers slid quickly to 6 for 51 before Faulkner and Gulbis united for a stand of 114 that helped take the hosts to what proved a more than adequate 8 for 192.
WA's pursuit was in trouble from the moment Gulbis burst through Shaun Marsh's defences with the tally at 17. Gulbis and Faulkner shared eight wickets between them to reel in a bonus point for Tasmania and consign the Warriors' new coach Justin Langer to his third consecutive loss since taking the job.
