Domestic interlude

Over the last week South Australia have been on tour in Tasmania where they've lost the one day game on Sunday at Launceston and could only gain a first innings win in the four day match at Hobart which finished today.

According to the Cricinfo Bulletin (which despite Cricket Australia's forbidding them to do ball by ball commentaries is on the whole as good an analysis as can be found anywhere in the Australian media) Tasmania, who were set 315 to win, came close to doing so, but were stopped by two late wickets from Shaun Tait. In the four day comp the Redbacks aren't performing as badly as England are doing in the Ashes, but their batting is inconsistent and their bowling relies heavily on Tait and Gillespie.

Bottom of both four and one day comps at this stage of the season doesn't augur well for the immediate future. The matches in the coming week against Qld may be the last chance to begin a revival which will lead to a place in the finals.
