Milenko, Rogers seal two-and-a-half day Tasmania victory

Tasmania 9 for 431 (Wade 139, Milenko 78, Guthrie 3-103) beat Western Australia 67 (Rogers 4-9) & 277 (Turner 81, Philippe 74, Rogers 3-46) by an innings and 87 runs

Tasmania have demolished Western Australia by an innings in two-and-a-half days to boost their chances of making the Sheffield Shield final.

The Tigers needed just five more wickets on day three and took just 21.1 overs to complete the rout. Simon Milenko and Thomas Rogers cleaned up the tail to finish with three wickets each after Ashton Turner (81 off 94 balls) and Josh Inglis (30 off 64) provided some resistance with a brisk 109-run partnership.

Both men fell to Milenko in the space of nine balls as the fast bowler completed a fine match taking four wickets across two innings to go with his vital 78 with the bat.

Rogers finished with seven wickets for the match and contributed 48 in the Tigers first innings. But Matthew Wade was a worthy Man of the Match. He added six catches behind the stumps to his first-innings century.
