Western Australia 6 for 54 (Butterworth 2-14, Hilfenhaus 2-21) trail Tasmania 211 (Kresja 36, Agar 3-47, Duffield 3-61) by 157 runs
Scorecard

Tasmania bowlers wrecked Western Australia's top order after being bowled out for 211 in Perth. Luke Butterworth struck in his first over to remove Liam Davis while Ben Hilfenhaus snared the other opener, Marcus Harris, in his third.

Western Australia's troubles were further compounded when they lost John Rogers and Luke Towers with the score on 28, and before the end of the day, they lost two more, including captain Mike Hussey, to be left tottering on 6 for 54, 157 runs behind Tasmania.

The day had started on a positive note for Western Australia. They had put Tasmania in to bat and Ryan Duffield had got rid of the openers by the 11th over. The batsmen who followed, all got starts but were not able to build on. They were 5 for 86 at one stage and managed to get to 211 with some handy lower order contributions.

Jason Kresja top-scored with 36 while Hilfenhaus added 23. Duffield and Ashton Agar shared three wickets apiece, while Burt Cockley and Michael Hogan picked up two each.

Was the ball hooping? It was pretty steamy yesterday. Or was it moving off the deck?

Just looking for excuses, I guess :^/

That collapse by the Warriors was coming a mile off as there are no Warrior batsmen with any sort of Shield form. There was no way that the batsmen were going to stand up on a greenish wicket if the Tassie batsmen couldn't. The tail got Tassie to a very useful score.
