Bird seals Tasmania's first win of the season

Tasmania 282 (Doran 114, Zampa 5-59) and 244 (Bailey 86, Richardson 4-30) beat South Australia 141 (Head 80, Bird 5-30) and 243 (Ferguson 94, Bird 3-51) by 124 runs

Tasmania's bowlers wrapped up a 142-run win - their first of the season - by taking the last five South Australia wickets in 36.3 overs for 119 runs on the last day at the Adelaide Oval. Callum Ferguson, who was unbeaten on 46 overnight, went on to score 94, and was the second-last wicket to fall as South Australia were all out for 243.

South Australia resumed their tall chase of 386 on 5 for 124. Jackson Bird struck with his first ball of the day when he induced an outside edge from Tom Cooper's bat. Ferguson was joined by wicketkeeper Alex Carey for a resisting stand of 62 for the seventh wicket, but Carey edged to the keeper while hooking Thomas Rogers with his team 10 short of 200. Left-arm pacer Sam Rainbird then chipped in with a double-strike - he bowled Cameron Valente with an inswinger from around the wicket and had Ferguson edge one to gully as he neared a hundred. Kane Richardson's slog-sweep to deep midwicket off Beau Webster eventually sealed Tasmania's win.

Jackson Bird finished with 3 for 51 to add to his 5 for 30 in the first innings, and Rainbird ended with 3 for 56 in the second innings.
