Tasmania’s Matador Cup finals chances are in peril following a devastating eight-wicket loss to Victoria at North Sydney Oval on Thursday.

Tasmania’s total of 7-210 was never enough against the Bushrangers, who powered home with a bonus point thanks to a vintage knock from former skipper Cameron White, was unbeaten on 117 from 104 balls

Despite their woes, the Tigers were able to find their own batting hero with Alex Doolan unbeaten on 87 from 82 balls after earlier retiring hurt due to back issues.

It was the second consecutive 50 for the former Test No.3 after his knock of 67 against New South Wales earlier in the week.

Apart from Doolan, the Tigers showed no fight with the bat, with four members of their top six finishing with single figures.

The Tigers need to win their remaining two matches to qualify for the finals.

They play the Warriors at North Sydney Oval on Saturday.
