This time the wickets were shared around with Peter Siddle taking three

Tasmania 333 (Paine 87, Wade 57, Bird 54*) and 191 (Lyon 4-48) beat New South Wales 32 (Bird 7-18) and 194 (Copeland 58) by 298 runs

It took Tasmania rather longer to bowl New South Wales out a second time, but they wrapped up a 298-run hammering with more than a day to spare following yesterday’s record-breaking 32 all out for the visitors.

Second time around New South Wales were six down with less than 100 on the board before some lower-order resistance from Mitchell Starc and Trent Copeland. The defeat leaves them fractionally behind Queensland in second place with them facing the Bulls in their last match in early April which could decide who hosts the final, although Queensland have two games to play.

On this occasion the wickets were shared around by the Tasmania attack with Peter Siddle‘s 3 for 31 worthy rewarded after he also bowled superbly in the first innings when Jackson Bird had his day out.

It was Siddle who started things off for Tasmania when Daniel Hughes shouldered arms and lost his middle stump in the eighth over. In his next over, Siddle hit the perfect channel to find the outside edge of Nick Larkin.
