South Australia vs Tasmania

Tasmania strengthened their position at Adelaide after gaining a first innings lead of 298 against South Australia. Jake Doran and Tim Paine scored hundreds and were involved in a 153-run stand.

Starting day three with a 116-run lead, Tasmania didn't take their foot off the pedal as the overnight batsmen - Doran and Paine - continued piling on the misery. The duo notched up their respective hundreds and though the partnership was broken, the Australian Test captain went on to add valuable stands with the lower order.

Facing a huge deficit, South Australia needed a good start and they didn't get that as Weatherald departed early while a promising partnership between Henry Hunt and Brad Davis was broken towards the fag end of the day. They still have an uphill task on the final day in order to avoid defeat.

Brief scores: South Australia 195 and 93/2 (Henry Hunt 44*) trail Tasmania 493/8d (Jake Doran 112, Tim Paine 111*; Chadd Sayers 3/27) by 205 runs.

Western Australia vs New South Wales

Cameron Green's marathon effort meant Western Australia remained favourites to take the crucial first innings lead against New South Wales at Gladys Elphic Park, Adelaide.

Sam Whiteman and Green started day three steadily and built a big partnership for the third wicket. Whiteman was dismissed for 114 by Abbott and thus ending the 173-run stand. Green batted on and changed gears as he kept losing partners at the other end. However, Matthew Kelly provided him support and the pair added 60 runs for the eighth wicket, leaving them 7 runs short of New South Wales' total.

Sean Abbott was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets while Australia's premier spinner Nathan Lyon picked two. New South Wales need a miraculous effort from their bowlers on the final day if they have to gain the first innings lead.

Brief scores: New South Wales 443/6d (Henriques 167, Solway 86; Ashton Agar 2/106) lead Western Australia 436/7 (Whiteman 114, Cameron Green 185*; Abbott 3/77, Lyon 2/112) by 7 runs.
