Tasmanian Tigers Beat Queensland Bulls (2009)


George Bailey

Tasmania has got its 2008-09 KFC Big Bash campaign back on track with an 18-run victory over Queensland at Bellerive Oval on Thursday.

After posting a healthy 8-184 from its allotted 20 overs, Tasmania then restricted Queensland to 4-166 in reply and in the process picked up its first points in the KFC Big Bash this season.

The victory takes Tasmania to fourth place on the KFC Big Bash table, while Queensland is sixth and still without a win from its two matches.

It was an excellent team effort from the Tigers, with George Bailey (52 off 34 balls) and Rhett Lockyear (52 off 28) the two top scorers with the bat and the four Queensland wickets shared among four bowlers.

Paceman Ryan Harris (3-26 off four overs) bowled well for the Bulls, but the Tasmanian batsman took a liking to the medium pacers of Nathan Rimmington (1-41 off three), with Lockyear in particular savage on any loose deliveries.

James Hopes (58), Glen Batticciotto (38), Lee Carseldine (35 not out) and Craig Phillipson (28) all did their bit with the bat for the Bulls, but the Tigers had too many runs on the board and held on for the win.
