In their Sheffield Shield match at the MCG, Jake Doran and Beau Webster worked together expertly to help Tasmania defeat Victoria. On the last day of a chaotic match, Tasmania eventually won by four wickets, with Doran scoring 47 unbroken.
With six wickets remaining on day four, Tasmania need 87 runs to win but got a boost early on. The crucial batsman heading into the final day, Ben McDermott, left for a 130-ball 46. Victoria gained the upper hand thanks to the wicket because, at that point, one more wicket would have made them the clear favorites. Doran and Webster, however, combined their efforts to gradually change the trend.
With 47 points, Jake Doran set a record.
In 53 balls and 38 runs, Webster gave out boundaries with ease. As Victoria eventually gave up, the two batters put up 68 runs for the sixth wicket to dramatically change the tide. Even though Webster left the game with 14 runs remaining, Doran and Jarrod Freeman finished the job.
If not for Victoria’s lower order’s tenacious resistance on the third day, the game might never have gotten this close. When Victoria were in serious trouble, Samuel Elliott produced a valiant undefeated 80 while Jon Holland crushed a 50-ball 55. By stumps, the match was finely matched as both teams traded blows in the fourth inning. However, McDermott, Doran, and Webster made sure Tasmania won the match.
