South Australian opener Jake Weatherald being run out for a diamond duck was the beginning of the end in a one-day annihilation at the hands of Tasmania on Friday.
Weatherald was absolutely torched by his partner Harry Nielsen, run out without facing a ball, as the Redbacks were rolled for 104, in just 32 overs, as four Tasmanian bowlers took two wickets or more.
It was the lowest total by a team batting first in the Australian one-day competition since October 2015, 106 matches ago.
It was also the second lowest first-innings total made against Tasmania since the competition started in 1969, more than 50 years ago.

To add insult to injury, the Tasmanians scored the required runs in just the 18th over, thanks to 54 off 68 balls from captain Tim Paine.
The Tasmanians were just one wicket down when they reached the target, and the match was over before 2pm in Melbourne.

It continued a horror run for South Australia — After making 365 in a near-record run chase at the WACA last week, the Redbacks were rolled for just 205 by NSW on Wednesday.
Travis Head’s team remains anchored at the bottom of both the Shield and one-day tables, without a win in either competition.
Tasmania on the other hand jumped to the top of the one-day table after already collecting a win over Victoria earlier in the week.
