Tasmania 376 for 8 (Jewell 137, Silk 85, Wakim 82, Guthrie 3-76) beat Queensland 348 (McDermott 143, Heazlett 63, Clayton 50) by 28 runs
Caleb Jewell's century laid the foundation for Tasmania's 28-run win over Queensland in a high-scoring Marsh Cup clash.
Jewell's run-a-ball 137 enabled Tasmania to post a mammoth 376 for 8 before the left-arm spin of Paddy Dooley (2-47) put the screws on the Bulls' run chase at Blundstone Arena.
A magnificent 143 from 112 deliveries by Queensland opener Ben McDermott against his former team wasn't enough to get the Bulls home as they were dismissed for 348 with one delivery of their innings remaining.
The visitors were 258 for 1 in the 35th over and on track for victory but Tasmania skipper Jordan Silk used crafty Dooley and the rest of his bowlers superbly, with Joe Burns run out for 2 at a crucial moment. Queensland captain Jimmy Peirson lacked support in the final 10 overs to get his side home.
Veteran Matthew Wade was due to return for Tasmania from a two-match suspension for slamming his bat on the pitch during the Marsh Cup-loss to Victoria in September. A back complaint forced his late withdrawal and Charlie Wakim was a late inclusion at No. 3.
Wakim made the most of his chance and combined with Jewell to add 158 for the second wicket. Jewell punished the ball square of the wicket and was masterful at cashing in on the short boundary on one side of the pitch.
Silk was in complete control when he joined Jewell. His innings was highlighted by a memorable short-arm jab over midwicket off James Bazley and a glorious cover drive to the boundary off Gurinder Sandhu.
Queensland made a statement early in the run chase with openers McDermott and Sam Heazlett reaching 100 in the 11th over. Heazlett was caught and bowled by Dooley, the pick of the bowlers on either side on a day dominated by the bat.
McDermott went to his half-century from just 30 deliveries and celebrated by walloping Nathan Ellis over mid-on and out of the ground.
His century, off just 75 balls, was highlighted by shots all around the ground but when Beau Webster dismissed the former Tasmania player with an offcutter they lifted their intensity and dried up the runs.
