Western Australia 6 for 265 (Klinger 66, Bird 3-51) lead Tasmania 261 (Triffitt 66, Hogan 4-48) by 4 runs
Michael Klinger's 66 helped Western Australia to a first-innings lead over Tasmania on the second day of their Sheffield Shield match in Perth. At stumps, the Warriors were 6 for 265, with a lead of four runs, with Ashton Agar and Joel Paris both at the crease on 20 each.
Tasmania had been bowled out for 261 earlier in the day, having resumed on 6 for 210. Tom Triffitt top scored with 66 and was one of two wickets for Paris, while Michael Hogan finished with 4 for 48. Western Australia's reply started poorly when Will Bosisto was bowled by Jackson Bird for a golden duck in the second over.
Jon Wells also fell cheaply to Bird and Western Australia were 2 for 14, but Cameron Bancroft (43) and Klinger were able to rebuild with a 108-run stand. Andrew Fekete removed them both, Klinger caught sharply at leg gully by George Bailey, before Ashton Turner (49) and Sam Whiteman (44) moved the score past 200.
