Cricket news - Steady Bancroft impresses impresses on first-class return
Victoria vs Queensland
Charlie Hemphrey (87*) and Marnus Labuschagne (59) played crucial hands as Queensland ended Day 1 of their Sheffield Shied game against Victoria in Melbourne in a position of strength at 308 for 4.
The opening duo of Matt Renshaw (29) and Joe Burns (60) set the tone with a stand of 67. Scott Boland and Jon Holland then combined to pick up the wickets of the batting duo. However, the trio of Labuschagne, Hemphrey and Sam Heazlett (46) ensured that the visitors would maintain the upper hand. Chris Tremain, Boland, Holland and Matthew Short took one wicket each for Victoria.
Brief scores: Queensland 308/4 (Charlie Hemphrey 87*, Joe Burns 60; Matthew Short 1-37) vs Victoria
New South Wales vs Western Australia
Despite Western Australia losing wickets at regular intervals, Cameron Bancroft (73*) stood firm to propel the visitors to 183 for 5 at close of play against New South Wales in Sydney.
After opting to bat, Sam Whiteman and Bancroft provided WA an excellent start, as the duo shared a stand of 119 for the first wicket. Harry Conway, the pacer, removed Whiteman. The trio of Sean Abbott, Steve O'Keefe and Trent Copeland then took over to reduce WA to 168 for 5. Bancroft and Bradley Hope ensured that WA wouldn't lose another wicket as the duo steered the side to stumps.
Bancroft, who was playing his first first-class game after the ball-tampering incident, would be pleased with his patient unbeaten 235-ball vigil at the crease.
Brief scores: Western Australia 183/5 (Cameron Bancroft 83*, Sam Whiteman 66; Trent Copeland 2-48) vs New South Wales
South Australia vs Tasmania
Jackson Bird bagged four wickets while Riley Meredith took two to bundle out South Australia for a rather modest 257 in Adelaide. In reply, Tasmania were 16 for no loss.
After South Australia elected to bat, the home side lost wickets at regular intervals to find themselves in a spot of bother at 115 for 6. Travis Head was the only batsman in the top six to essay a fifty. At 193 for 9, South Australia were even in danger of being cleaned up for a score of under 200, but the last wicket pair of Joe Mennie (43*) and Chadd Sayers (20) guided the hosts to a score of respectability.
Brief scores: South Australia 257 (Joe Mennie 43*, Harry Nielsen 43; Jackson Bird 4-53) lead Tasmania 19/0 by 238 runs.
