Cricket news - Smith, Henriques tons put New South Wales in command
New South Wales vs Tasmania, Sydney
Hundreds from Steve Smith and Moises Henriques put New South Wales in command in Sydney. The duo was unbeaten at stumps on Day 2, with their partnership of 186 pushing the hosts into a slight first-innings lead with as many as eight wickets to go.
David Warner's early dismissal aside, it was a day that entirely belonged to New South Wales. They skittled out the Tasmania lower-order early on - for the addition of just 10 runs to the overnight score of 258/6 - with Mitchell Starc leading another mop-up to complete a five-for. Then, whatever lift Sam Rainbird had given Tasmania by getting Warner to nick off, didn't last long.
Smith, desperate to make up for his stunning failure in the Shield opener, set up his tent in the middle. He had good support from Daniel Hughes early on before Henriques came along and took absolute control, comfortably beating Smith - the more cautious of the two - to a hundred.
Brief Scores: New South Wales 275 for 2 (Moises Henriques 116*, Steve Smith 102*; Sam Rainbird 2/47) lead Tasmania 268 (Beau Webster 65, Alex Doolan 58; Mitchell Starc 5-40, Sean Abbott 2-55) by 7 runs.
Queensland vs South Australia, Brisbane
After a late mini-collapse on the opening day, where they lost three wickets in a hurry before stumps, Queensland recovered nicely through fifties Charlie Hemphrey and debutant Bryce Street, taking the lead on a weather-affected day at the Gabba. However, two quick wickets before the close meant that their advantage wasn't substantial.
The hosts had two solid partnerships that helped them navigate through the majority of the day, which began slightly late due to inclement weather. Marnus Labuschagne played well for his 32 before Hemphrey and Street got together for an 83-run stand that took them close to South Australia's total of 221. But Thomas Andrews provided a timely breakthrough before Nick Winter, who took three of the four wickets to fall on the day, restored some balance with the late wickets of Jimmy Pierson and Michael Neser.
Brief scores: Queensland 242 for 7 (Chris Hemphrey 64, Bryce Street 53*; Wes Agar 3-29, Nick Winter 3/64) lead South Australia 221 (Thomas Andrews 78, Tom Cooper 69; Michael Neser 5-56) by 21 runs
Western Australia vs Victoria
Captain Shaun Marsh's hundred led Western Australia's strong response on the second day after Victoria were bowled out for 341. Walking into bat after Cameron Bancroft's early departure, and losing Sam Whiteman not long thereafter, Marsh shared a 115-run stand with Marcus Stoinis - who scored a brisk fifty - to provide a strong platform for the hosts.
Hilton Cartwright's fluent knock of 42 further drove the innings forward at a good clip before Peter Siddle - the pick of the Victoria bowlers - got him LBW shortly before stumps. Marsh, though, brought up his milestone and remained unbeaten to ensure his team got the better of the day which had started with medium-pacer David Moody taking three wickets in his morning spell to keep the Victorian lower-order within bounds.
Brief Scores: Western Australia 256 for 4 (Shaun Marsh 101*, Marcus Stoinis 56; Peter Siddle 2/46) trail Victoria 341 (Sam Harper 72, Marcus Harris 69, Will Pucovski 64; Jhye Richardson 3/58, Matthew Kelly 3/69) by 85 runs
