AAP logoAAP 6/11/2016

South Australian paceman Chadd Sayers has completed an 11-wicket haul in a crushing Sheffield Shield victory over Tasmania.

The Redbacks won by an innings and 94 runs, sealing the result before tea on Sunday's third day at Adelaide Oval.

Sayers claimed five wickets in Tasmania's second innings as the Tigers were bowled out for 289 with captain George Bailey scoring an unbeaten century.

Sayers took 6-32 when the Tigers were skittled for 98 in their first innings, with SA replying with 481 all out with Jake Weatherald and Jake Lehmann scoring centuries.

Tasmania resumed on Sunday at 4-57 and Bailey played a lone hand of resistance, finishing on 142 not out, his 19th first-class ton.

But Bailey's teammates fell - Dom Michael (32), Jake Doran (31) and Jackson Bird (39) were the only other batsmen to reach double-figures.

Sayers returned figures of 5-44 to record 10 wickets or more in a first-class match for the second time in his career.

His pace partner Daniel Worrall and legspinner Adam Zampa claimed two wickets each.

Paceman Joe Mennie, released from his Australian 12th man duties in the first Test to play, captured just one second-innings wicket.

The Redbacks have now banked consecutive wins to open their Shield season and Tasmania have lost successive matches.
