Tasmania have made a watchful start to their crucial Sheffield Shield match against South Australia at Bellerive Oval.
At tea on day two, Tasmania had reached 3-149 at tea, scoring at barely 2.5 an over after winning an important toss.
Both sides enter the penultimate-round match needing a win to push for a spot in the Shield final amid a congested ladder.
No.3 Beau Webster top-scored for the Tigers with 42, while Jake Doran and captain George Bailey remain at the crease on 34 and 22 respectively.
Tasmania received a boost with Jackson Bird included in the side despite injury ruling out the paceman from Australia's Test tour of South Africa.
Fast-medium bowler Kane Richardson took two of the wickets to fall returning figures of 2-23.
