Tasmania 9 for 222 (Dom Michael 100, Dunk 51, Paris 3-24) beat Western Australia 8 for 207 (Shaun Marsh 68, Bancroft 42, Faulkner 3-35) by 15 runs Scorecard
Tasmania knocked out Western Australia from the Matador Cup thanks to a century from Dom Michael and an even bowling display at Drummoyne Oval.
Using the same pitch on which New South Wales beat Queensland, the Tigers fought to build a decent total despite the return of Mitchell Johnson, who bowled with good pace and control in his first match of the season.
Michael's wandering career seems to have found a home in Tasmania, and he combined poise and languid strokeplay with patience to bat almost through the whole Tigers innings.
The Warriors made a solid start in reply through Cameron Bancroft and Shaun Marsh, but after they were separated by Clive Rose, wickets fell regularly to leave the match in Tasmania's possession.
World Cup winners James Faulkner and Xavier Doherty bowled notably well for the Tigers, who have mixed strong displays with abject losses during this tournament.
