Tigers ready to roar

AS Tasmania and Queensland prepare to do battle in the Sheffield Shield final, Tigers No.3 Alex Doolan is hoping the momentum gathered from two consecutive wins can drive the group to a third title.

The Tigers reached the decider after two outright wins against Queensland and Victoria, earning hosting rights at Blundstone Arena in the process, and the playing group is brimming with confidence.

Doolan, who was today one of five Tigers named in the ACA Shield All-Star team on the back of a break-out campaign which has netted 683 runs at 45.5, said things couldn't be better in the home side's camp.

"The change rooms are still abuzz after the Victorian game here. Hopefully we can continue the momentum from that game and take it into Friday's match," Doolan said.

"We have had some really good battles with them [the Bulls] over the last 24 months and hopefully this game is no different."

Queensland spearhead Ryan Harris, who is on the comeback trail from injury which has wiped out the majority of his 2012-13 season, is expecting nothing less than a tough encounter in a re-match of last year's final.

The big difference for the defending champions, however, is the game is on Tasmanian soil and not at the Gabba.

"Obviously it is really good to be back in a final and defending our title," Harris said.

"Both sides play pretty attacking cricket. Even last year we weren't trying to draw it, we were trying to win it. That is the best way to do it."
