Scorecard

Rob Quiney scored an unbeaten 85 to steer Victoria to a seven-wicket win over Tasmania on the third afternoon at the MCG. Set 199 for victory, the Victorians reached their target with three wickets down during an extension of play, after Travis Dean (50) and Cameron White (30) helped Quiney set the team on the right path.

The day had started with Tasmania on 3 for 62 in their second innings and an unbeaten 79 from Ben McDermott was the only half-century of the innings. Fast bowler Chris Tremain picked up 4 for 37 and overshadowed Test squad member Peter Siddle, who claimed 2 for 31; fellow Test player James Pattinson did not play the third day as he instead joined the squad in New Zealand.

Victoria's wicketkeeper Sam Harper entered the record books on the third day, claiming his ninth dismissal - the most ever by a wicketkeeper on Sheffield Shield debut. Harper, 19, was already the youngest wicketkeeper in Victoria's Shield history.
