Cricket news - Richardson strikes late to keep Victoria in check
Western Australia vs Victoria
Jhye Richardson struck twice late in the day to ensure the honours were even between Western Australia and Victoria at stumps on the opening day at the WACA. On a see-saw day, Victoria made a very good start with the bat putting on 78 for the opening wicket before Matthew Kelly broke the deadlock. And then from 108/1, Victoria slipped to 128/4 in a matter of eight overs to hand over control to Western Australia.
However, Will Pucovski joined forces with Matthew Short after Glenn Maxwell's dismissal to resurrect the innings with a century partnership. The duo added 114 for the fifth wicket and appeared to steer Victoria to a dominant position by the close of play before Richardson struck twice. He first removed Short for 55 before getting rid of Pucovski for a patient 64 to keep Victoria in check.
Brief scores: Victoria 277/6 (Marcus Harris 69, Will Pucovski 64; Jhye Richardson 3-45, Matthew Kelly 2-59) vs Western Australia
Queensland vs South Australia
On a wicket-laden day, Queensland finished stumps at a precaurious 70/3, still 151 runs behind South Australia at the Gabba in Brisbane. South Australia made a poor start after opting to bat with three out of their top four batsmen registering ducks. But at 55/5, they were rescued by a vital partnership between Tom Cooper and Thomas Andrews. Both Cooper and Andrews were counterattacking in their approach and went past half-centuries in their rescue mission.
Michael Neser, who had already rocked South Australia earlier with a triple strike, returned to add Cooper's wicket that saw them sink further. Eventually, they were bowled out for 221 with Neser removing Andrews right at the end to grab his fifth wicket. Queensland came up with a very good response adding 63 for the opening wicket with both Matt Renshaw and Joe Burns looking to get through to stumps without any damage. Wes Agar though had other ideas and struck thrice in five overs to keep his side in the contest.
Brief scores: Queensland 70/3 (Joe Burns 39; Wes Agar 3-6) trail South Australia 221 (Thomas Andrews 78, Tom Cooper 69; Michael Neser 5-56) by 151 runs
New South Wales vs Tasmania
On a slow-moving day in Sydney, Tasmania finished stumps at 258/6 after batting out 96 overs. The star-studded New South Wales bowling attack struggled to make early strikes with the Tasmania openers adding 100 at less than three runs per over. Their resistance was finally broken when Sean Abbott removed both Jordan Silk and Alex Doolan. Matthew Wade got going with three quick boundaries but Mitchell Starc ended his stay shortly forcing Tasmania to rebuild.
A patient Beau Webster then added 75 for the fourth wicket alongside Ben McDermott before Nathan Lyon struck for the first time in the innings. Starc struck again to shift the momentum towards NSW but it was Webster's runout that hurt Tasmania the most before stumps. Webster departed for a gutsy 65 two overs before stumps leaving Tim Paine a huge task on the second morning to guide Tasmania to a decent score.
Brief scores: Tasmania 258/6 (Beau Webster 65, Alex Doolan 58; Mitchell Starc 2-36, Sean Abbott 2-50) vs New South Wales
