Victoria 230 and 0 for 44 (Harris 30*, Dean 13*) need 317 runs to beat Tasmania 203 and 9 for 387 dec (Webster 122*, Silk 76, Milenko 51)
An unbeaten hundred from Beau Webster set Victoria a stiff target of 361 out of which they scored 44 without losing a wicket by the end of the third day in Hobart.
Resuming the day on 3 for 127, Tasmania lost Jordan Silk for 76 on the seventh ball of the day, but Webster kept knocking runs off in the company of some lower-order batsmen. He forged stands of 70, 98 and 47 with Jake Doran (24), Simon Milenko (51) and Sam Rainbird (32) respectively even as the Victoria quicks picked wickets. Webster was not out on 122, his third first-class hundred, before Tasmania declared on 9 for 387. Chris Tremain finished with 4 for 97 while Jon Holland and Dan Christian took two wickets each.
Victoria openers Travis Dean and Marcus Harris played out 17 overs to end the day with them needing another 317.
