The Tasmanian Tigers wrapped up a comprehensive win over New South Wales at Blundstone Arena today, winning by ten wickets.
After rain washed away any hope of play on day one, the Tigers piled on the runs during day two, declaring overnight at 4-392.
Jordan Silk was the star, reaching his fifth first-class century to be the rock of the Tigers’ innings.
He was supported by half-centuries to Jake Doran (75), Matthew Wade (72) and George Bailey (71), along with a valuable knock of 42 from Alex Doolan, who batted with Silk through the entire morning session.
Declaring overnight, Tasmania has the Blues in a world of trouble early on day three, as Gabe Bell and Jackson Bird used the new ball to full effect to reduce the visitors to 3-4 in their reply.
Ed Cowan (64) and Steve O’Keefe (52 not out) provided resistance with half-centuries, but NSW were eventually bowled out for 208, with Bell and Bird claiming three wickets and Tom Rogers the other multiple wicket-taker with two.

With rain forecast on the final day, Tigers skipper George Bailey decided to send the visitors back in and his decision was vindicated almost instantly, with Daniel Hughes and Nick Larkin dismissed off consecutive Bird deliveries.
Bird then claimed the wickets of Cowan and Nic Maddinson in consecutive overs as the NSW top order again failed to fire.
Peter Nevill (70) scored a determined half-century, but it counted for little as the Blues were dismissed for 184, tying the scores and leaving Tasmania one run required to win.
Jordan Silk continued his terrific match, claiming his maiden first-class wicket dismissing Nevill with a sharp caught and bowled catch, before hitting the winning runs.
Tasmania now head into the break of the Shield season, with the Big Bash season around the corner.
