Tasmania 8 for 212 (Cowan 91*, Richardson 3-43) beat South Australia 169 (Cooper 66) by 48 runs (Duckworth-Lewis method)

Tasmania surged to a 48-run victory over South Australia in a rain-shortened domestic one-day match in Burnie, as Ed Cowan and Ben Hilfenhaus made striking contributions.

Cowan's 91 at No. 3 allowed the Tigers to set a decent target despite the loss of regular wickets, and the total was bolstered a little more by Duckworth-Lewis calculations.

SA's reply was unsettled the moment the visitors lost the captain Michael Klinger to Hilfenhaus, and regular wicket ensured they would never mount a serious chase despite 66 for the in-form Tom Cooper.

Hilfenhaus finished with four wickets while Xavier Doherty managed two.
