NOWRA'S Nic Maddinson and his Victorian side's JLT Sheffield Shield clash with Tasmania at the CitiPower Centre has ended in a draw.
Tasmania began the final day on 0/27, in pursuit of 476, and continued to lunch without loss at 0/112.
Victoria managed three wickets in the middle session and two in the final session to give the hosts a chance at victory, however Tasmania held on long enough for sides to shake hands - with the visitors finishing at 5/197
Maddinson was named player of the match, after making scores of 136 and 61 -becoming the second player, behind Sir Don Bradman, to score hundreds in each of his first three matches played for a Shield side.
The result sees Victoria maintain top spot on the Sheffield Shield table over New South Wales by 5.85 points, who host the Vics at Drummoyne Oval from Tuesday.
The winner of that match will qualify for the Sheffield Shield final in late March.
