Bollinger takes NSW to innings win
New South Wales 9 for 576 dec (Nevill 235, O'Keefe 99) beat Tasmania 272 (Cowan 76) and 213 (Silk 71, Bollinger 5-57) by an innings and 91 runs
Doug Bollinger ran through Tasmania to deliver an innings victory for New South Wales on the final day of their Sheffield Shield match in Hobart. Bollinger collected 5 for 57 as the Tigers were skittled for 213 in their second innings, falling 91 runs short of making the Blues bat again after Peter Nevill's double-century pushed them to 576 on the third day.
Tasmania started the morning on 1 for 139 and seemingly in a good position to play for a draw, but instead lost 9 for 65 and did not even make it halfway through the day. The problems began when opener Jordan Silk was caught behind off Bollinger for 71, and was followed by Dom Michael, who was lbw for a second-ball duck.
Stand-in captain Alex Doolan was lbw for 42 to Steve O'Keefe, who also picked up Jonathan Wells cheaply. Bollinger and Nathan Lyon then ran through the rest of the order, Bollinger finishing with his third first-class five-wicket haul of the past 12 months, and Lyon ending up with 2 for 24.
