Luke Feldman grabs five in Queensland win
Queensland 335 and 252 beat New South Wales 243 and 176 (Katich 55*, Feldman 5-32, Simpson 3-40) by 169 runs
Luke Feldman's first five-wicket haul in first-class cricket delivered a 169-run win for Queensland over a disappointing New South Wales, who lost six wickets in less than 16 overs on the final morning. The Blues started the day at 4 for 148 and needed another 197 for victory, but Feldman sent them spiralling to defeat in just over an hour.
Simon Katich was unbeaten on 38 overnight and finished still at the crease on 55 as wickets tumbled around him. Grant Lambert departed from the tenth delivery of the day when he was bowled by Feldman, who went on to claim 4 for 2 in the space of 17 balls.
Feldman was in his second Sheffield Shield match and his third first-class game and having grabbed four wickets in the first innings he ended up with match figures of 9 for 81. After Lambert's departure, David Warner was caught at point without scoring, Moises Henriques was caught in the gully for 2 and Daniel Smith was caught behind for a duck.
Ben Cutting confirmed the win with the final dismissal. The victory strengthened Queensland's grip on second spot on the Sheffield Shield table, while New South Wales remain on the bottom.
