Cricket news - Khawaja, Heazlett hand Queensland massive win

Khawaja struck a ton, while Heazlett made 88 to carry Queensland to 322 for 9

Victoria vs Queensland, Melbourne

Usman Khawaja and Sam Heazlett buried Victoria as Queensland sealed a comprehensive 154-run win over Victoria in Australia's domestic one-day tournament. Khawaja struck a ton - smashing 138 off 126 - while Heazlett made 88 to carry Queensland to 322 for 9 with an opening stand of 185. Will Sutherland was the lone fighter for Victoria with a half-century as they were shot down for 168 in 39.5 overs.

After opting to bat, Khawaja and Heazlett laid the foundation with a dominating opening stand but the middle-order failed to capitalise completely on it. Marnus Labuschagne got off to a solid start - making 36 off 25 - but they kept losing wickets and failed to gather momentum. The side slipped from 239 for 1 to 298 for 5 at one stage.

In the chase, Aaron Finch laboured his way to 46 off 77 as he saw the team nose-dive to 92 for 6. Sutherland delayed the inevitable but Mark Steketee's four-wicket haul was enough to end the game early.

Brief scores: Queensland 322/9 in 50 overs (Usman Khawaja 138, Sam Heazlett 88; James Pattinson 3-56) beat Victoria 168 in 39.5 overs (Will Sutherland 66; Mark Steketee 4-25) by 154 runs.

South Australia vs Tasmania, Adelaide

Alex Ross struck 82, Jake Lehmann got a half-century but South Australia's 228 for 9 wasn't enough for the side to prevent a five-wicket loss against Tasmania. The visitors polished off the chase in 46.2 overs as they picked up their first win after two losses.

James Faulkner bagged 3 for 28 to keep the hosts to a modest total but it was Ben McDermott who eased the side to a win. He struck 103 off 140 and scored 132 for the opening wicket with Caleb Jewell (64) to shut the door on South Australia.

Earlier in the day, after being reduced to 43 for 4, Lehmann and Ross revived the innings with a 65-run stand but the visitors continued to stay on top with regular wickets. With not much lower order resistance, the side fell well short of a par score.

Brief scores: South Australia 228/9 in 50 overs (Alex Ross 82*; James Faulkner 3-28) lost to Tasmania 229/5 in 46.2 overs (Ben McDermott 103*) by five wickets.
