New South Wales vs Queensland, Sydney

New South Wales consolidated their lead at the top of the Sheffield Shield points table with a convincing nine-wicket thrashing of Queensland on Tuesday as they comfortably overhauled the meagre target of 42 in just 11.3 overs. Queensland resumed their second innings on the final morning from the overnight score of 111 for 5, still trailing by 24 runs and Usman Khawaja leading from the front with a valiant, unbeaten 54. However, after playing 11 dot balls in the morning session, the captain departed without adding anything to his overnight tally. Jimmy Peirson, just like in the first innings, stuck around to add some useful runs with the lower order, taking his team to 176 before they folded, managing only a faint 41-run lead.

Queensland, as a result, suffered their first defeat in five games, and still sit second on the table with 24 points from five matches.

Brief scores: Queensland 240 (Bryce Street 58, Jimmy Peirson 38*; Harry Conway 5-15, Liam Hatcher 3-40) and 176 (Usman Khawaja 54, Jimmy Peirson 33; Steve OKeefe 3-28, Harry Conway 2-32, Liam Hatcher 2-50) lost to New South Wales 375 (Moises Henriques 116, Peter Nevill 88, Sean Abbott 86; Michael Neser 4-60) and 42/1 (Daniel Hughes 27*, Mitchell Swepson 1-27) by 9 wickets.

Tasmania vs South Australia, Hobart

Wes Agar's fifer helped South Australia finally register their first win of the competition, handing Tasmania a six-wicket beating in Hobart. Tasmania resumed their second innings from 241 for 6, with a lead of 149 and Ben McDermott unbeaten on 88 off 232 deliveries. However, they lost the well-settled batsman off the eighth ball of the morning and it all went downhill from there on. Agar went on to complete his fifer, restricting Tasmania to just 261 that gave SA a target of 170.

The chase wasn't an easy one with Gabe Bell and Riley Meredith both claiming two wickets apiece early to reduce the visitors to 34 for 4 inside 11 overs. However, Harry Nielsen joined hands with William Bosisto to guide the team home without any further hiccups. Nielsen was the aggressor in their 136-run unbeaten partnership, hitting 11 boundaries en route his 86 while Bosisto was stranded three short of his fifty as his partner hit the winning runs in the 49th over.

Brief scores: Tasmania 254 (Simon Milenko 100; Wes Agar 3-68, Joe Mennie 3-76) and 261 (Ben McDermott 89, Jake Doran 44; Wes Agar 5-53, Chadd Sayers 3-57) lost to South Australia 346 (Jake Weatherald 126, Alex Carey 73; Jackson Bird 4-70) and 170/4 (Harry Nielsen 86*, William Bosisto 47; Gabe Bell 2-32, Riley Meredith 2-38) by 6 wickets.
