Tigers win sets up Vic v Qld final

Scorecard

A thrilling century by Mitchell Marsh on his return to Western Australia's side was not enough to prevent Tasmania from completing a 51-run victory at the WACA Ground that left Victoria to host Queensland in the domestic limited overs final.

Marsh and the debutant spin bowler Ashton Turner added an audacious 86 after early wickets had all but ruled out WA's chances of completing their chase of Tasmania's 6 for 307 inside the 40 overs they required to claim a bonus point and sneak past the Bulls.

However Turner's departure to James Faulkner, who produced an influential allround display, signalled the end of the hosts' serious resistance, which had been earlier blunted by Ricky Ponting's chancy but at other times attractive 95.

In his first match for WA, the former New South Welshman Burt Cockley nabbed a pair of early Tigers wickets with some disconcerting bounce, but after Ponting had been dropped by turner in the gully the visitors pressed on to a major score, Jordan Silk also playing neatly.
