First innings of the Sheffield Shield match.
Rain interrupted the Sheffield Shield match between Queensland and Western Australia with the entire first day lost to the weather.
Queensland were too impatient when play was allowed to resume and fell quickly to the Western Australian bowlers, reports Fox Sports.
Luke Pomersbach was the only Bull to offer much resistance knocking up a half century against his old club before the Queensland side were all bowled out.
After standing at 4-113 at the break wickets began to fall quickly for the Bulls who were all out for 164.
Queensland will be ruing a chance to dismiss Michael Hussey who was dropped on 9 and went on to finish the day 48 not out. The Bulls will be hoping Hussey doesn’t make them regret that missed catch further when he returns to the crease on day two.
Western Australia finished day two on 5/141 with two days remaining in the test. Both teams are chasing the six points to remain a chance of making the Shield final.
A stand out for the bulls was paceman Ryan Harris who finished the second day with impressive figures of 3-31 after 16 overs.
Queensland Captain James Hopes is hoping for a better batting performance from his side in their second innings.
“You just felt that because we lost the first day’s play, we were in a bit of a rush to get the game going,” said Hopes.
“That’s probably cost us in the end, but we will be a bit more patient and there’s still technically 225 overs left to go in the game. That’s a lot of cricket.”
