A 48-run win to Tasmania over South Australia
in their rain-affected one-day cup match in
Burnie on Sunday was an “embarrassment”,
Redbacks coach Darren Berry says.
The Tigers moved at least temporarily to the
top of the table with the win, which was set up
by a well-paced 91 not out from Ed Cowan
Paceman Ben Hilfenhaus’ career-best haul of
4-24 helped reduce the Redbacks to be all out
for 169, well short of their adjusted target of 218.
Berry said his team had been completely
“We came down here pretty excited and
looking forward to this contest, and we felt
we could really take Tassie on and they’ve
embarrassed us, to be honest,” he said.
“We walk away embarrassed in all aspects of
this game because they out-fielded us, they
out-bowled us and they out-batted us.
“In the three aspects of the game we got a good
kicking today and we’ve got to regroup.”
Cowan combined well with James Faulkner
(29) and Jason Krejza (19) for aggressive stands

NSW batsman David Warner is being flown to South
Africa as an injury replacement for Australian No.3
Shaun Marsh, who will return home as soon as
Marsh suffered back stiffness during his innings of 44
on the first day of the opening Test in Cape Town.
He was unable to walk on Wednesday night after
batting and wasn’t able to field for the entirety of the
It’s the second time Warner has been called in as a
cover player on consecutive tours, after he was flown to
Sri Lanka to shadow for Ricky Ponting, who returned to
Australia for the birth of his second child.
Warner is hoping for a Test debut and will be
competing for a spot with NSW teammate Usman
Khawaja who is already with the squad in Cape Town.
Warner left Sydney this morning to join the Australian
squad in Johannesburg ahead of the second Test.
The news is a setback for Marsh after Australia were
quietly confident he was improving as he moved more
freely around the team hotel.
But it became obvious his fitness wasn’t going to
improve in time for the start of the second Test at The
Wanderers on Thursday.
The left-hander trudged out to bat during Australia’s
disastrous second innings of 47 at Newlands but his
discomfort was obvious and he was trapped lbw for a
duck on the second ball he faced.
Marsh has made a fantastic start to his... Read more
