    1.5 Paine shoulders arms and Dougie takes off with his middle and off peg. Disappointing for the young man, and the Blues are cock-a-hoop 2/1
    27.2 short one from Dougie and Dighton stuffs up a hook shot, gets a top edge and it ballons back to the keeper who takes an easy catch. Tigers in big trouble 90/4
    24.4 Mr Tucker took a while but eventually fired out Birty, the red line in the middle of the pitch shows the ball pitched in line and was going to knock em over 84/3
    29.3 well, great bowling from Dougie Bollinger, smart cricket, he forced Bailey back with a couple of good shorter ones, then angled a perfect nut across the right-hander, drawing an edge and gifting Wickie Smith his third catch behind 94/5
    61.2 forward prod and thick outside edge goes to Haurie at 2nd slip who gleefully pouches it. Five-fer for Young Winston Churchill 188/7
    57.2 edges a good one from big Bolly to first slip and that's Tea 173/6
    105.5 good nut from Lambert, right in the corridor of uncertainty and Butters tickles one to Smith who snaffles his fourth catch of the innings 335/9
    94.4 well, they dug it in short and Wright couldn't resist a tonk outside off, he gets a big fat top edge and it flies to Ed at the aforementioned fly slip and he pouches a catch, made it look pretty easy and that's the end of Wrighty 298/8
    107.5 full and wide and Adam G goes after it as the No.10's Union Membership demands and gets a good healthy edge through to Smith, the keeper with 5 scalps to his resume for this match 340/10

    56.1 big trouble now for the Blues as their rock goes after a wide one and drags it back onto his stumps, and the Tassie boys celebrate like it's 1999 and Prince is putting on free party pies 169/6
    10.3 shoulders arms as Tim Paine did for Tassie and the ball swung back in took the top of middle, off and maybe leg too, rattling around the stumps like a bowling ball among the pins. Bowled Hilfy, the comp's leading wicket taker 40/1
    13 Katich has another go at an off-drive but gets a nice juicy and highly audible outside edge through to the keeper, well bowled again Big Hilfy 48/2
    38.4 oh, Dom Thon's been out-thouught with a sucker-ball, another short one has taken a top edge and flown a long way but mostly up in the air where it's snaffled on the fence by Luke Butterworth in comfortable boundary rider fashion. 137/3
    41.3 might've just pitched outside leg but it was a huge and confident and good shout, the ball would've uprooted middle peg and put all together that was enough for umpire Alley to fire him straight out. Looked out, is out 141/4
    49.5 gonnnnnne, a half-volley is hit hard but straight into the breadbasket of Beetle Bailey, and the Blues are in trouble at five-fer, Lukey B's got a wicket nad they're into the all-rounders 155/5
    75.2 slower ball entices Lambert to drive but he gets a thick outside edge that floats to Damien Wright in the gully who takes a nice falling catch to his left 229/9
    58.4 wide and swinging and Hauritz can't resist a drive at it, succeeding only in getting a fat outside edge that's flown perfectly into the buckets of Daniel J Marsh, the skipper of this rampant Tasmanian XI 171/7
    64.3 Nicko nicks one and Dan Marsh pouches his second catch off the impressive bowling of Daniel Wright who's got three impressive wickets. Tassie all over the Blues in the Pura Cup Final. 197/8
    75.4 and that's that, Bolly spoons on back to the bowler and it's 4 wickets for LR Butterworth, well deserved 230/10

    4 good bowling in the corridor of uncertainty draws an outside edge that Hauritz scoops his buckets under and it's goodbye TD Paine, who looks over his shoulder not totally sure the ball carried, but he's gone just the same 19/1

    10.1 cut in the air to gully and Grant Lambert didn't need a second invitation to catch it before it hit the ground, that's the end of MG Dighton for season 06/07, at least with the bat 49/2

    45.2 well, Travis Birt is going to destroy the locker room, he's spooned a MacGill full toss straight back into the SCG MacGill buckets and he heads off after hanging around for a fair while and 28 runs to his name. 117/4

    68.1 ggonnnneee, absolutely plumb LBW and the big man from Parramatta strikes, cop that 176/6
    62.4 well, another little twist yet again in this Tiger's tale, as Dan Marsh chips an in-dipper off his pads and straigth to Ed Cowan at square leg, and Marsh looks mortified 157/5
    166.3 and that's the end of Clinga, after an epic 305 ball 107 he's beaten by Dom thorneley's arm ball and that is outta there, and no argument 453/9

    126.1 well, the break in play causes a little lapse in concentration and first ball after Drinks and the kid is gone, no addition to his 106, good piece of bowling from Haurie, scooted one in between bat and pad and the Blues have a wicket 339/7
    157.5 the wrongun gets through Wild Wright and hits him on the back pad of his two, no hesitation from the Umpy, you are gone-ski 432/8
    168.2 scooped up to cover off a leading edge where Nathan Haurie takes a diving low down catch that no-one but he and Dom Thornely thought had caught, but that is the end of Griffo and Tasmania. 460/10

    1.3 well, the first blow has been struck for the Tassie boys, Jaques goes back and misses one that pitched on middle n leg and might've been missing off but the size of the shout and the enthusiasm for the wicket probably tipped it to LBW 5/1
    10.2 short and wide and Lambo has a slash that gets a bottom edge that Dan Marsh does pretty well to snaffle at first slip 36/3
    4.2 short outside off stump, just angling back in and keeping low and a cramped cut shot finds a bottom edge and the stumps and the end of EJM Cowan 13/2
    17 short and pulled at some speed but straight to Timmy Paine at square leg for his first meaningful contribution of the game. Nice innings from Kat-man but the hiding was to nowt 69/5
    12.1 nice outswinger that Thornely gets forward too but his feet don't follow and his dangling bat gets an inside edge that rattles the castle. 5-ball duck for Dom Thon, and the Blues are booking early flights 52/4
    30.1 Roh-roh tries a cut shot and Wild Wright captures three when a thin but audible top edge sees the Blues ever closer to blessed oblivion and the Tigers thinking of the Cascade Premium baths and the keys to the city and the love 115/8
    23 straight through the gate, maybe if we're being generous a bit of movement off the seam, but the gap was between bat and pad and he's on his way the keeper, six-down now the Blues, we'll be in the pub by Lunch 94/6
    26.3 swing and a snick by hauritz, he didn't even bother looking around just walked off after a fat edge goes into the Sean Clingeleffer buckets. just the genuine tail-enders now between Tassie and a mountain of Cascade Premium lager 104/7
    34.3 tail-enders decision for MJ Nicko, it was angling down leg but probably looked a bit out on first glance, was certainly a good shout as shouts tend to be, and the locals are one wicket from everlastin glory 148/9
    34.5 AND THERE IT IS, WILD WRIGHT GETS A FIVE-fer, he's got Doug Bolly plumb and the Tasmanian players, the fans, the kids, the mums and dads, the shop-keepers, the chemists, the miners, the candlestick makers, the whole island state is up! 149/10

Match Notes

  • Ponting tips bright future for Butterworth

    Ricky Ponting might have been 20,000 kilometres away in St Kitts, but he kept up to date with Tasmania's maiden Pura Cup win at Hobart. And it could have been a suggestion from Ponting back in November that helped them to their 421-run victory

  • Tigers on brink of history-making win

    Centuries to Luke Butterworth and Sean Clingeleffer drove Tasmania to the brink of their first Pura Cup title as they set New South Wales a virtually impossible target of 571

  • Wright bowls Tasmania to historic victory

    Damien Wright and Ben Hilfenhaus bowled Tasmania to their first Pura Cup title

  • Blues face tough chase to claim title

    Matthew Nicholson bowled New South Wales back into contention but Michael Di Venuto and George Bailey ensured the Blues will have to chase well over 300 to take the Pura Cup title

  • Tasmania bowlers turn screws on Blues

    Ben Hilfenhaus and Damien Wright bowled Tasmania into a strong position to launch a bid for their first Pura Cup title, despite a solid 82 from Phil Jaques
