Western Australia 97 and 8 for 358 (Whiteman 83, Agar 71*, Marsh 51, Faulkner 4-69, Hilfenhaus 3-62) beat Tasmania 211 and 242 by 2 wickets
Western Australia completed a stirring comeback victory over Tasmania on the final morning of the Sheffield Shield match at the WACA ground.
The Warriors needed only a further six runs to win and they were polished off by the No. 10 Burt Cockley, playing his first Shield match for his adopted state after moving from New South Wales.
Ashton Agar was at the other end, his unbeaten 71 pivotal to WA's win after being bowled out for a mere 97 in the first innings.
WA's win keeps the within sight of the Shield leaders with two rounds remaining, but the Tigers' bid to make a third consecutive final is now faltering.
