Queensland 4 for 118 (Hopes 41, Reardon 26) beat New South Wales 125 (Forrest 34, Hopes 4-16, Feldman 2-30) by six wickets (D/L method)
Scorecard

An allround performance from James Hopes led Queensland to a comfortable six-wicket victory against New South Wales, who never recovered from a top-order collapse to be shot out for 125.

Luke Feldman bowled David Warner with his first delivery, and in his third over, had Phil Hughes caught by Andrew Robinson as NSW slipped to 11 for 2. Alister McDermott kept up the pressure and dismissed Phil Jaques and Moises Henriques in successive overs to worsen NSW's woes at 33 for 4.

Hopes stepped up to claim four of the remaining six wickets as NSW crumbled to 125 in the 35th over. Peter Forrest resisted with a patient 34, but his run-out was the last thing NSW needed. After rain intervened, the match was shortened to 38 overs, but Queensland needed only 31 to knock off the revised target of 117. Hopes provided a solid start with 41 off 56 deliveries, and Nathan Reardon and Joe Burns finished the job.

Queensland go joint-fourth, level on points with Western Australia, but they have played one more game. NSW remain in third position.
