A belligerent Shaun Marsh provided some last day entertainment but it wasn't enough to ensure a result in the Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania.

When stumps were called early on the final day, Tasmania were 2-117 after having been set an improbable 307 to win in less than two sessions.

A draw always appeared the most likely result after WA started the day at 0-232 with a 102-run lead, but there were a few twists along the way at Adelaide's Gladys Elphick Park.

With Cameron Bancroft (104) and Sam Whiteman (118) dismissed early, it raised hopes Tasmania might have a chance.

But a snappy 76-run partnership from 88 balls between Marsh (88) and Cameron Green (36) put paid to thoughts of a quick clean up.

Marsh only ramped things up from there, his bruising knock coming off just 74-balls and including 21 runs off one Jake Doran over.

It followed his century in the first innings, which also saw Lance 'Wild Thing' Morris pick up career-best figures of 5-94.

WA declared at 5-436 just after lunch, Nathan Ellis picking up 2-108 for the Tigers.

After losing the early wicket of Jordan Silk (1) to allrounder Green (1-21), it was clear Tasmania wouldn't be chasing the runs as Wade anchored down for his second half century of the game.
