Tasmania 393 and 164 (Silk 53, Milenko 33, Worrall 4-17) lead South Australia 227 and 1 for 49 (McInerney 19, Weatherald 16*, Rainbird 1-13) by 282 runs

A huge batting collapse by Tasmania gave South Australia the chance to pull off a stunning comeback in their Sheffield Shield clash in Hobart.

The Tigers began their second innings 166 runs in front after bowling out the Redbacks for 227 early on day three. Tom Rogers picked up the last wicket to finish with four for the innings.

Tasmania cruised to 1 for 83 with Jordan Silk making a swift half-century. They looked poised to take the game beyond the Redbacks reach but they lost 6 for 17 in 11 frantic overs. Joe Mennie removed Silk before Daniel Worrall and Nick Winter ripped through the middle order. A late fightback from Simon Milenko pushed the lead to 331. Worrall finished with 4 for 17.

The Redbacks moved to 1 for 49 at stumps, having only lost debutant Conor McInerney.
