It is the fourth lowest total in the 129-year history of the Sheffield Shield.

That unwanted record is held by South Australia, who ere dismissed for 27 and 29 in 1955 and 2004, respectively.

Victoria have the third lowest total. They were rolled for just 31 in 1907.

In the six-ball over era, only one other team has been dismissed faster than the 19.3 overs it took Tasmania to roll through NSW.

NSW product Jackson Bird was the bowler who inflicted the pain on the visitors.

The quick finished with career-best first-class figures of 7-18 from just 10 overs.

Opener Daniel Hughes, first drop Daniel Solway, No. 4 Kurtis Patterson and Nathan Lyon were the four NSW batsmen to be dismissed for a duck.

Peter Nevill was the only batsman to reach double figures. He finished with an unbeaten 10 runs.
