The ball dominated as 12 wickets fell on the opening day of Queensland's Pura Cup match against New South Wales at the Gabba. At the close, Queensland were 2 for 64 in reply to NSW's 203.

There was little untoward in the first two hours as NSW cruised to 1 for 89 after winning the toss. But then they lost nine wickets for 114, including four for nine runs in a torrid half an hour after lunch as Joe Dawes and Andy Bichel wreaked havoc. Dawes finished with 6 for 49.

Brad Haddin led a spirited counterattack with a 90-ball 66, which included 10 fours and a six, but he received scant support. Queensland wicketkeeper Wade Seccombe took four catches in the innings, taking him past 500 first-class career and 450 domestic four-day dismissals.

Matthew Nicholson took two quick wickets when Queensland batted to reduce them to 2 for 31, but Jimmy Maher (23*) and Andrew Symonds (29*) arrested the slide with an unbroken 47-run stand.
