Late wickets give Blues the edge

Tasmania 6 for 267 (Doolan 82, Cowan 65, Lalor 3-62) v New South Wales
Scorecard

Alex Doolan gave Tasmania a solid platform on the first day against New South Wales in Canberra, but a pair of late wickets to Josh Hazlewood gave the Blues a slight edge at stumps. At the close, the Tigers were 6 for 267 having chosen to bat, with Matt Johnston on 15 and Tom Triffitt on 7.

Late in the afternoon, Hazlewood trapped James Faulkner lbw for 44 and soon afterwards had Doolan lbw for 82, which was the key breakthrough. Doolan and Faulkner had put together a 97-run partnership after several members of the Tasmanian top order made starts but failed to go on.

Ed Cowan had struck 11 boundaries in his 65 before he was lbw to Josh Lalor, the New South Wales left-arm fast bowler playing his second first-class game. Lalor finished the day with 3 for 62 from 23 overs, a fine collection that also included George Bailey for 18 and Mark Cosgrove for 10.
