Doran, Bailey fifties boost Tasmania

Tasmania 6 for 281 (Doran 74, Bailey 55, Winter 3-56) v South Australia

Half-centuries from Jake Doran and George Bailey helped Tasmania build a solid first-innings total on the opening day of their Sheffield Shield clash against South Australia in Hobart.

Having won the toss, Tasmania slipped to 2 for 43 before Doran and Beau Webster steadied the innings with a 65-run stand.

Webster then fell for 42 but Doran and Bailey put together a 111-run partnership for the fourth wicket. Doran made his third half-century in five innings, having made 95 against Queensland and 97 against New South Wales.

But Redbacks left-arm paceman Nick Winter continued his stunning form to remove Doran, Bailey and Simon Milenko in a four-over spell with the second new ball. Matthew Wade and Tom Rogers saw Tasmania through to stumps without any further damage.
