New South Wales scrambled to victory over Queensland on the final morning of the Sheffield Shield match in Canberra, guided most of the way by Brad Haddin.

Resuming at 4 for 48, the Blues lost another three wickets in the pursuit of 98 to win, those of Steve O'Keefe and Haddin falling with 10 runs still required. But Sean Abbott struck a pair of clean blows to ensure the Blues took all six points, Haddin claiming the match award after his first innings of 73 and four catches in the match.
