NSW slump to all-time low in Sheffield Shield

Meanwhile, NSW have been left to lick their wounds after being breached by Tasmania in the Sheffield Shield for just 32 times – their lowest total ever.

Former Test-fast Jackson Bird was the main destroyer with a career-best 7-18 when the Blues crumbled in just 19.3 overs at Bellerive Oval on Sunday.

The Tigers decided not to force the follow-on and set the visitors a massive fourth innings goal of 493 for the win.

The stunning collapse of the NSW was the fourth lowest score in the 129-year history of Australia’s premier league, beating their previous worst of 53 against Tasmania in Hobart in 2007.

Only skipper Peter Nevill (10 not out) got the double digits when Bird wreaked havoc after hitting a career-best run-a-ball 54 earlier.

Bird grabbed three scalps in his first eight deliveries, leaving the Blues 3-0, with Daniel Hughes, Daniel Solway and Kurtis Patterson all failing to score.

“It was just one of those days when it felt like the ball came out of ball one nicely,” he said.

“I felt like (the gig) was just around the corner. (I’ve) felt that way for the past 12 months, but I haven’t really had that bag of wickets for a while.

“(But I) didn’t think it was going to be this good. I feel like I’m bowling as well as I have been in years past.”
