Cricket news - Queensland edge ahead on 14-wicket day

Luke Feldman bagged 5 for 20 for Queensland

Queensland v New South Wales, Brisbane

On a day when 14 wickets fell, Queensland edged ahead in their Sheffield Shield game against New South Wales in Brisbane. After bundling out New South Wales for just 150, the home side was 67 for 4, still trailing by 83. Luke Feldman, the medium pacer, starred for Queensland with a five-wicket haul.

After Queensland opted to bowl, the trio of Feldman, Neser and Mark Steketee ran through the batting order and NSW could never recover from the early blows. Nick Larkin, the opener, top-scored for NSW with 31, while Jack Edwards and Trent Copeland made useful contributions. Feldman ended up with impressive figures of 5 for 20 while Neser and Steketee took two scalps each.

Queensland's batsmen, however, couldn't take advantage of the impressive show by their bowlers. Meanwhile, the trio of Copeland, Moises Henriques and Sean Abbott shared the spoils to keep the visitors in the game. Charlie Hemphrey remained unbeaten at stumps on 29.

Brief scores: New South Wales 150 (Nick Larkin 31; Luke Feldman 5-20) lead Queensland 67/4 (Charlie Hemphrey 29*; Trent Copeland 2-25) by 83 runs.

Western Australia vs South Australia

The Sheffield Shield game between Western Australia and South Australia at the WACA followed a similar pattern to the one played in Brisbane as SA were bowled out for a mere 159, but the hosts lost four wickets to finish the day at 75 for 4, in arrears by 84.

South Australia, who were asked into bat, had a fine start with the opening duo of Jake Jake Weatherald (25) and Conner McInerney sharing an alliance of 60. It was Hilton Cartwright who triggered a collapse by dismissing both Weatherald and Jake Lehmann in a single over.

Travis Head and Callum Ferguson charted a mini recovery with a stand of 38 for the third wicket. However, once Liam Guthrie castled Head, South Australia suffered a major collapse, losing their next seven wickets for just 61. Guthrie took four wickets for WA.

In the final session, South Australia's bowlers - Joe Mennie, Nick Winter and Luke Robins - struck at regular intervals to keep WA in check.

Brief scores: South Australia 159 (Conor McInerney 43; Liam Guthrie 4-53) lead Western Australia 75/4 (Josh Inglis 23; Joe Mennie 1-10) by 84 runs.
