Tasmania 1 for 137 (Silk 61*, Cosgrove 50) and 6 for 369 dec (Ponting 104, Cosgrove 81) lead Victoria 358 (Hussey 112, Rogers 73, Quiney 60, Gulbis 5-104) by 148 runs
David Hussey waited until the last Sheffield Shield round to make his first century of the season but Victoria still finished a rain-interrupted day trailing Tasmania.
Cosgrove perished to Fawad Ahmed for 50, but Silk continued in the company of Alex Doolan, leaving Tasmania in a position to set a target on the final day, provided the weather is kind. Both sides require an outright result, the Bushrangers to host the final and the Tigers to have a chance of reaching it.
