The highlight for more on Day 2 was seeing Tim Paine chat to Mitch Starc, Australian fast bowler and team mate before they took to the field on Day 2 in Sydney of the Sheffield Shield.
Steve Smith scored a very patient 102 after batting almost all day on a very testing wicket and good bowling from Sam Rainbird and Riley helping Tasmania slow down the run rate after David Warner was well caught by Tim Paine off Rainbird for 1 in the 4th over.
NSW will start Day 3 with a 7 run lead and Steve Smith to continue having passed yet another century. This time in his first match for NSW in Sydney for 2 summers.
Australia Pakistan in 4 weeks time from this Thursday at the Gabba from November 21.
