Scorecard

An opening stand of 154 between the captain Chris Hartley and the opening batsman Usman Khawaja set Queensland on the path to a 30-run victory over New South Wales in the domestic limited overs match in Canberra.

Hartley and Khawaja laid a platform for the Bulls' eventual total of 6 for 292, its dimensions ultimately proving out of reach for the Blues despite a doughty rearguard from Ben Rohrer.

NSW lost regular wickets in their pursuit as Cameron Gannon picked up a first five-wicket haul of his domestic limited overs career, before Rohrer added 81 with Josh Lalor in a mere 56 balls to give the Bulls a fright.

The match was the last of the Australian domestic summer before the states break for the Twenty20 Big Bash League, which commences on December 7.
