Wade Shield ton reignites Ashes calls


//

Matthew Wade notched a brilliant century for Tasmania, but it wasn't enough to stop Western Australia posting a crucial Sheffield Shield win in Hobart.

The former Test wicketkeeper hit 137 as the Tigers were all out for 402 late on day four in pursuit of 454 for victory.

Wade, who provided national selectors with another reminder of his long-form credentials, gave the Tigers a sniff of an unlikely win with his second ton of the Shield season.

He was cautious early but picked up the pace on either side tea and smacked four sixes, including two into the second tier at Bellerive Oval.

Wade shared a 183-run with Ben McDermott (69) but it came undone when he edged David Moody to second slip.

McDermott was caught behind not long afterwards to virtually scuttle the Tigers' chances.

The 51-run win means the Warriors remain in the hunt for a Shield final berth, after second-placed NSW lost to ladder leaders Victoria earlier this round.

The Tigers, who equalled their biggest fourth-innings total, needed to win to stay in touch with the top two.

Tasmania resumed on Friday at 0-54, needing another 400 runs for victory.

Their day got off to the worst possible start, with openers Jordan Silk and Alex Doolan out inside the opening two overs without adding to their overnight scores of 20.

Joel Paris finished with 3-64, while Mitch Marsh picked up 3-76, backing up his 3-21 from the first innings.

Test skipper Tim Paine (47) was the last man out after being demoted behind Jackson Bird as the Tigers chased quick runs.

Tasmania were behind the eight-ball after scoring 197 in their first innings in reply to the Warriors' 367.
