Tasmania wrapped up a dominant victory over Victoria to keep them from sealing a home Sheffield Shield final berth with two rounds of the competition remaining.
Cameron White and Scott Boland delayed the Tasmania’s completion of an innings victory on the final morning, taking their stand to 130 for the eighth wicket before White was caught behind off the bowling of Hamish Kingston, who plucked six victims for the match.
The last two wickets fell soon after to complete the rout, an intriguing twist to the season given Tasmania’s struggles – they remain at the bottom of the table – and Victoria’s previously dominant campaign.
Ben Dunk was deservedly awarded Man of the Match for his first innings 190, an innings that overtook Victoria’s poorly 165 all on his own.
