New South Wales v Queensland

Harry Conway bagged a five-wicket haul to put New South Wales in the ascendancy versus Queensland in Sydney. NSW were 1 for 0 after bundling out the visitors for 240 at the close of play.

Queensland opted to bat and were in a good position at 89 for 1, with Bryce Street scoring a fifty. At that stage, the veteran seamer Trent Copeland accounted for Usman Khawaja's wicket to dent the visitors. Queensland then lost wickets at regular intervals to find themselves in a spot of bother at 178 for 6. With the visitors slipping, the duo of Jimmy Peirson (38) and Michael Neser (28) joined forces to share a stand of 62 and lift Queensland.

Just then Conway showcased his skills by ripping through the heart of the lower order. The 27-year-old bagged four wickets in a single over to clean up the visitors. When he dismissed Mitchell Swepson, Conway was also on a hat-trick but couldn't remove Billy Stanlake the next ball. Incidentally, the fast bowler had previously taken a hat-trick in the Under-19 World Cup in 2012.

Brief scores: Queensland 240 (Bryce Street 58; Harry Conway 5-15) lead New South Wales 1-0, by 239 runs.

Tasmania v South Australia

Joe Mennie and Wes Agar shared six spoils between them as Tasmania were cleaned up for a modest 254 against South Australia in the Sheffield Shield game played in Hobart. The visitors were 26 for no loss at stumps on Day 1.

Tasmania, who were inserted into bat, made a decent start and were 98 for 2. However, Mennie dismissed Alex Doolan for 37, which opened the floodgates for the visitors to run through the side. If not for Simon Milenko's aggressive hand of 100, the home side could have been bowled out for under 200. He also shared a crucial stand of 57 with Gabe Bell for the ninth wicket to pash Tasmania towards 250. Milenko was the last wicket to fall, castled by William Bosisto. Mennie returned figures of 3 for 76 and Agar picked up three scalps for 68 runs. After cleaning up the home side for a below par total, Jake Weatherald and Henry Hunt shepherded South Australia to stumps.

Brief scores: Tasmania 254 (Simon Milenko 100; Wes Agar 3-68, Joe Mennie 3-76) lead South Australia 26/0, by 228 runs.
