Cricket news - Queensland down South Australia in low-scoring match
Queensland v South Australia
Queensland completed a comfortable 43-run win in a low scoring affair against South Australia at the Gabba, Brisbane. Resuming at 94 for 7, South Australia's chances of an upset win hinged heavily on the batting of Jake Lehmann, but the southpaw was dismissed with just one run added to the overnight total.
Nick Winter (21*) and Joe Mennie added 35 runs for the ninth wicket to keep South Australia's slender hopes alive, but the end came soon after as Mennie and Luke Robins were dismissed in quick succession. Eventually, South Australia were bundled out for 131 - which ironically was the highest total of the match. For his match figures of 6 for 65, Luke Feldman was named as the Man of the Match.
Brief Scores: Queensland 115 (Marnus Labuschagne 36, Tom Andrews 6/40) and 130 (Sam Heazlett 37, Joe Mennie 3/16) beat South Australia 71 (Luke Feldman 4/16) and 131 (Jake Lehmann 42, Mark Steketee 4/29, Cameron Gannon 2/21) by 43 runs
New South Wales v Victoria
Wickets continued to tumble on the second day even as the hosts edged ahead after another absorbing day's play at the Drummoyne Oval. Resuming at their overnight score of 97 for 7, NSW's tail wagged to help them finish at 135, a modest first innings lead of 29 runs. Former Australian wicket-keeper batsman, Peter Nevill, remained unbeaten on 33 while Jon Holland took 5 wickets for the visitors. Victoria's second innings was a mirror image of their first with only Marcus Harris (29) and Nic Maddinson (33) showing some fight.
At 44 for 4, the innings threatened to unravel and it needed a handy half-century from Matt Short to keep Victoria in the game. The day was twice marred by rain and when stumps was finally called for bad light, the visitors had progressed to 159 for 7, a lead of 130 runs. Harry Conway was excellent once again and he followed his first innings five-wicket haul with three more in the second innings.
Brief Scores: Victoria 106 and 159/7 (Matt Short 50, Nic Maddinson 33, Harry Conway 3/29) lead New South Wales 135 (Daniel Hughes 45, Peter Neville 33*, Jon Holland 5/31) by 130 runs.
Tasmania v Western Australia
A solid first-innings batting performance was followed by an equally disciplined bowling show as Western Australia took complete control over Tasmania in their Sheffield Shield encounter at the Blundstone Arena, Hobart. Resuming at their overnight score of 334 for 7, the visitors were finally dismissed for 367 with Jackson Bird completing his five-wicket haul.
Tasmania started their reply well with openers Jordan Silk (26) and Alex Doolan (46) adding 84 runs for the first wicket. However, the dismissal of Doolan opened the floodgates as the hosts stumbled. Barring Matthew Wade (38) and to some extent Tim Paine (26), none of the other batsmen showed the determination to spend time in the middle as the hosts were bowled out for a meagre 197. Wickets were shared amongst the five bowlers with Joel Paris and Micthell Marsh taking three apiece. Having decided against enforcing the follow-on, the visitors finished the day at 2 for no loss, an overall lead of 172 runs.
Brief Scores: Western Australia 367 (Josh Phillipe 76, Hilton Cartwright 66, Jackson Bird 5/70) and 2/0 lead Tasmania 197 (Alex Doolan 46, Matthew Wade 38, Joel Paris 3/33, Mitchell Marsh 3/21) by 172 runs
