Western Australia v New South Wales

Having opted to bowl, Western Australia were made to toil by New South Wales on the opening day. It started with the openers Daniel Hughes and Nick Larkin putting on a 54-run opening stand. However, a double break saw Larkin and new man Kurtis Patterson being dismissed in the space of 15 balls and Hughes too 5 overs later. Having slipped from 54/0 to 71/3, NSW were in need of a stabilising act. It was exactly what they got through Moises Henriques and Daniel Solway who batted out the rest of the day, adding 191 between them to put NSW in a comfortable position.

Brief Scores: New South Wales 262/3 (Moises Henriques 134*, Daniel Solway 68*) vs Western Australia

South Australia v Tasmania

Despite Harry Nielsen's 164-ball 64, South Australia were cleaned up for just 195 in their Sheffield Shield game versus Tasmania at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide.

South Australia, who opted to bat, lost wickets at regular intervals and found themselves in trouble at 107 for 6. Barring Henry Hunt (30) and Callum Ferguson (29), the rest of the batsmen were dismissed for cheap scores. At that stage, Nielsen and Sayers joined forces to prop up the side to some extent before Sayers was castled by Beau Webster. South Australia suffered another mini-collapse and were eventually cleaned up in the 82nd over. Nielsen was the last man dismissed, with Jackson Bird picking up the scalp.

Webster took three wickets while Bird, Peter Siddle and Nathan Ellis took two each. Tasmania , though, lost both their openers - Jordan Silk and Alex Doolan - and finished the day at 14 for 2, still trailing by 181.

Brief scores: South Australia 195 (Harry Nielsen 64; Beau Webster 3-26) lead Tasmania 14-2 (Chadd Sayers 1-3) by 181 runs.
