12th Men: BW Neill (Tasmania) and PR Sleep (South Australia)
The match was played in most unsatisfactory conditions, the players having to cope with rain and gale force winds. At one time it appeared the match would end after thirty-two overs with South Australia six for 117, the same score Tasmania had reached at that point. Had the match ended at that point the result would have been a tie.
