Cricket news - Centurions Patterson, Nevill put NSW on top
Victoria vs Queensland
A fighting 108 from Nic Maddinson wasn't enough to prevent Victoria from conceding a lead to Queensland, with the visitors coming up with a collective effort with the ball to take the upper hand in the Sheffield Shield clash at the Junction Oval in Melbourne.
Resuming Day 3 at 184 for 3, Maddinson tried to hold the innings together in response to Queensland's first-innings total of 441. However, the lack of support from the other end meant that the visitors kept chipping away at regular intervals. Mark Steketee and Michael Neser combined to negate any middle-order fightback while Mitchell Swepson wrapped up the tail to finish with a four-wicket haul as the hosts were bowled out for 344.
Joe Burns and Matt Renshaw then put on a century partnership, with the latter being dismissed three short of a fifty. Burns, who crossed fifty, remained unbeaten along with Marnus Labuschagne to help Queensland to 135 for 1 at Stumps, stretching their lead to 232.
Brief scores: Queensland 441 & 135/1 (Joe Burns 64*, Matt Renshaw 47; Jon Holland 1-43) lead Victoria 344 (Nic Maddinson 108, Marcus Harris 95; Mitchell Swepson 4-76, Mark Steketee 3-61) by 232 runs.
New South Wales vs Western Australia
Centuries from Kurtis Patterson and Peter Nevill helped New South Wales to a commanding position against Western Australia, who ended Day 3 still needing 185 to make the hosts bat again with nine wickets in hand at the Bankstown Oval in Sydney.
Starting the day at 188 for 3 in reply to Western Australia's total of 279, Patterson continued his superb form by registering yet another three-figure score having scored three centuries against Sri Lanka - two in the practice games and one in the second Test in Canberra. Patterson was involved in half-century stands with Jason Sangha and Nevill. Following Patterson's dismissal, Nevill went on to score a fine hundred and was supported by Steve OKeefe, who scored a fifty and was part of a century stand for the seventh wicket as NSW declared at 477 for 8.
Western Australia, who batted for nine overs, lost Sam Whiteman early and were 13 for 1 at Stumps.
Brief scores: Western Australia 279 and 13/1 (Cameron Bancroft 6*; Sean Abbott 1-3) trail New South Wales 477/8 decl. (Kurtis Patterson 134, Peter Nevill 101*; Liam O'Connor 5-131) by 185 runs.
South Australia vs Tasmania
A fine century on debut by Charlie Wakim, and Jackson Bird's strikes put Tasmania in a position of strength against South Australia at the Adelaide Oval.
Having bowled out South Australia for 257 and ending Day 2 at 238 for 3, Wakim helped Tasmania extend the advantage by scoring 160 in his maiden first-class innings. Solid contributions from Ben McDermott and Jake Doran also aided Tasmania's cause as they finished with a total of 467.
Starting their second innings 210 runs behind, South Australia were jolted further when Bird accounted for Conor McInerney and Jake Lehmann early. But Jake Weatherald and Travis Head managed to steady the ship with an unbeaten 116-run stand, with the former crossing fifty, to reduce the deficit to 78 at Stumps.
Brief scores: South Australia 257 & 132/2 (Jake Weatherald 64*, Travis Head 45*; Jackson Bird 2-30) trail Tasmania 467 (Charlie Wakim 160, Matthew Wade 77; Joe Mennie 3-53) by 78 runs.
