Tasmania’s Jackson Bird rattled New South Wales during their Sheffield Shield match in Hobart after he bagged a seven-wicket haul against them. Tasmania ended NSW’s first innings for a mere score of 32 in reply to their 333. The Mathew Wade-led side just used up 19.3 overs to conclude NSW’s first innings. 

The New South Wales team lost three wickets without bothering scorers and were soon left tottering at 19/6 to before ending the innings at 32 eventually, handing Tasmania a massive lead of  301 runs. 

Wicket-keeper batsman and NSW’s skipper Peter Nevill was the only batsman to reach the double-figure mark after he remained not out for 10. NSW’s four batsmen were undone for a duck while Sean Abbott was retired hurt. 

Peter Siddle and Rainbird also scalped a wicket apiece for Tasmania. 

Wade’s side then set a huge target of 493 runs as they scored 191 in the second innings. Paine top-scored for his side with 40. Off-spinner Nathan Lyon was pick of the bowlers for NSW in the second innings after he picked up four wickets while Jason Sangha removed three Tasmanian batsmen during the course. 

Earlier, Tim Paine struck 87 for Tasmania while captain Wade also notched up a half-century as Tasmania put 333 on the board in the first innings. Mitchell Starc, Trent Copeland and Harry Conway got three wicket each for their side. 

NSW is presently placed second with three wins and  28 points while Tasmania are at fifth spot with 12 points and no wins so far in the competition.
