Scorecard

Queensland ground out a 201-run advantage to build a commanding position on the second day against the defending champions Tasmania. Ryan Broad's 94 headlined a cautious innings of 6 for 359, which also included half-centuries to Greg Moller and Clint Perren, as the Bulls took few chances in their quest for a perfect start to the Pura Cup season.

Tasmania collected an early breakthrough after Queensland resumed at 0 for 136 - Moller was unable to control a pull shot on 78 - but they had to wait until shortly before lunch, by which time Queensland had two first-innings points, for Broad to give Geeves his second wicket. Broad had worked calmly towards his century, hitting 14 fours from 194 balls, and fell for 94 to a sharp take from Tim Paine at short leg.

Maher (26) departed to Geeves in the second session while Perren pushed Queensland further ahead with 63 before Aaron Nye chipped in with a useful 46. Geeves made sure the Tigers were not overpowered as he picked up an impressive haul of 4 for 87, including 12 maidens in his 35 overs, but it was the home side's day again.
