Bailey, Webster lead Tasmania’s reply on rain-hit day | Cricket Bats | Australia

New South Wales 8 for 449 dec (Henriques 131*, Larkin 85, Rogers 4-88) lead Tasmania 1 for 79 (Bailey 34*, Webster 31*, Sandhu 1-28) by 370 runs

Rain and bad light meant that only 36.4 overs were possible on day two of the Sheffield Shield clash between New South Wales and Tasmania at the SCG.

The rain arrived in the middle session and never abated. Earlier, the Blues batted on for nearly 12 overs and added 57 runs before declaring their first innings closed at 8 for 449.

Moises Henriques only added to his overnight score, while he watched Trent Copeland smash 44 from just 31 balls before he became Tom Rogers’ fourth wicket of the innings.

Tasmania lost Alex Doolan to Gurinder Sandhu early in their innings but Beau Webster and George Bailey pushed the total to 1 for 79 before rain intervened.
