Queensland 183 (Burns 90*, Hilfenhaus 4-50) and 1 for 11 need 322 runs to beat Tasmania 350 (Cowan 93, Cazzulino 63, Cutting 4-54) and 165 (Hopes 5-59)
Scorecard

Ben Hilfenhaus' hat-trick was the headlining performance on a 17-wicket day in Hobart, and when the dust settled after the frenetic action, Queensland were left with a daunting target to chase against Tasmania.

The day had begun with Queensland 3 for 136 in their first innings, and little did they know they would be batting in their second before the sun set. Joe Burns, resuming on 76, remained firm but wickets tumbled at the other end. Peter Forrest and Chris Hartley fell early to Sam Rainbird, and then Hilfenhaus ripped apart the lower order. He had James Hopes lbw and bowled Ben Cutting and Cameron Boyce to complete a hat-trick in the 72nd over. Andrew Fekete mopped up the last two wickets and Queensland were dismissed for 183, having lost their last seven wickets for 40 runs.

Tasmania, however, could not build significantly on their first-innings lead of 167. Hopes took 5 for 59 and Luke Feldman claimed 3 for 41 as Queensland steamed through the batsmen, reducing Tasmania to 9 for 165 before the declaration came. Jonathan Wells top scored with 43, and some lower-order contributions lifted Tasmania from 6 for 60.

Chasing a target of 333, Queensland had seven overs to face before stumps and during that time Rainbird removed Burns for 1.

What happened to Cutting? Why didn't he bowl in the second innings?
