Johnson takes four but Tasmania on top

Scorecard

Mitchell Johnson pressed his Test claims with four wickets but Tasmania remained in complete control on the second day against Western Australia in Hobart, where the Warriors faced a challenge to avoid an innings defeat. At stumps, Western Australia were 1 for 54 in their second innings, with Marcus North on 33 and Sam Whiteman on 19, and after their disastrous first innings they needed another 327 runs to make the Tigers bat again.

Tasmania had started the day on 2 for 201 and they added another 246 for the loss of their remaining eight wickets. The opener Ben Dunk missed the chance for his maiden first-class century when he was caught behind off Nathan Coulter-Nile for 97 and George Bailey became the first wicket for Johnson when he was caught for 66.

Johnson, who could come into calculations for the third Test against South Africa in Perth, picked up two more middle-order wickets before James Faulkner offered some serious resistance with an unbeaten 76. Evan Gulbis (35) and Jackson Bird (26) also provided important tail-end runs and Johnson finished with 4 for 103.
