Chris Lynn century secures draw for Queensland

ESPNcricinfo staff

Queensland 150 and 7 for 277 (Lynn 142*, Broad 52, Dorey 3-62) drew with Western Australia 331

Chris Lynn struck his second first-class hundred to ensure a draw for Queensland at the Gabba, where Western Australia began the final day searching for victory. The Bulls started at 1 for 23, needing 158 runs to make the Warriors bat again in their rain-affected match, and when Michael Hogan had Craig Philipson lbw early it seemed a big ask.

However, that brought the 20-year-old Lynn to the crease, and together with Ryan Broad (52) he steadied Queensland. In his tenth first-class outing, Lynn showed no sign of nerves and brought up his century by advancing to the spinner Aaron Heal and driving him over long-off for six.

Brett Dorey led the attack with 3 for 62 but Western Australia's hopes faded as Queensland moved into the lead, meaning the Warriors had not only to bowl the Bulls out but then chase a target. When the match was called off, Lynn was unbeaten on 142 with Cameron Boyce on 1, and at 7 for 277, Queensland had a lead of 96.
