The tigers are well and truly in the driving seat for this one.

I'm taking my penny jar to the bookies tomorrow to put three quid sixty on the tassies.

Luke Butterworth producing the game of his life for Tassie, hope they win it for Diva.

Tassie in cruise control now with NSW 28/2 chasing over 500, this Hilfenhaus looks good.

Tasmania were odds-on favorites to win. And rightly so they have. Not much different from the bashing they gave the Blues last week, who to be fair have done well with a depleted team to be in the final.

Some young talent from both sides. Obviously Hilfenhaus; Luke Butterworth is something, great all-round performance. Doug Bollinger has also been doing well, despite the lack of opportunities with the packed NSW bowling lineup. Ed Cowan, watch out for him if you haven't yet.

Yup, congrats to the tigers, after 115 years the Tassies have finally won it.

Tonight sees the Australian domestic season start again. The opening fixtures are:

Ford Ranger one-day Cup:
Wednesday: Queensland v Tasmania
Friday: Western Australia v NSW

Pura Cup:
Friday: Queensland v Tasmania
Sunday: South Australia v Victoria
Sunday: Western Australia v NSW

From a Gloucestershire perspective, I'll be keeping an eye on how WA do, with Marcus North as captain and Ben Edmondson amongst the bowlers.

Why don't Aussie Domestic have overseas players?

In England we have overseas players to strenghten sides. You can see how it wouldn't work in Oz.

The only real English involvement in Australian domestic cricket this season is Graham Thorpe as assistant coach of New South Wales. Of course plenty of our young players play grade cricket out there during our winter but very few have played for state sides over the years.

They do sometimes. Botham and Hick were two who have, someone like Murray Goodwin would be a more recent example.

I expect the main reason is that the Aussie domestic season is the same as everyone else's domestic season except England. Even then the best English players will be away touring with England or the England academy.

Tough pair of opening matches for the Tassies, gotta feel for them.

I am very jealous of such a strong domestic system.

Who are the faves this year?

I'm not, I'd rather have the counties. The Aussies system seems to be a bit overrated...

Ford Ranger One Day table from last season. Queensland went on to defeat Victoria in the final.

..........................P..........W...........L ...........BP........Points
Victoria................10.........7...........3.. ..........4...........32
Queensland...........10.........6...........4..... .......2...........26
Western Australia...10.........5...........5............2. ..........22
South Australia......10.........5...........5........... .1...........21
Tasmania..............10.........4...........6.... ........1...........17
New South Wales...10.........3...........7............1..... ......13

SA season was disappointing. Even though the table indicates we were 1 win (plus bonus point) from the final, this is mainly due to the fact we won our last three (meaningless) games in a row. On the plus side we did beat the eventual champions both home and away during the season, and many of our losses were in tight matches. But I'll rant more about the Redbacks later.

Today's game is Qld v Tas. Qld will be without Kasprowicz, who has a calf injury, and Tas will be without Hilfenhaus who is in India with Australia.

Queensland, the Tassies can't possibly pull a rabbit out of the hat two years running. NSW ought to be good but most of their paklyers are playing for Australia. So, it'll be up to Victoria and Western Australia to try to curb the bullrush.

SA will finish last.
