Queensland v Victoria, Sheffield Shield, Brisbane October 12, 2012

Pattinson takes six in Victoria's win

ESPNcricinfo staff

Victoria 227 (Wade 89, Siddle 54, McDermott 3-45, Feldman 3-66) and 0 for 48 beat Queensland 149 and 125 (Townsend 42, Pattinson 6-32) by 10 wickets

James Pattinson produced his best first-class figures to set up a 10-wicket win for Victoria over Queensland on the third day at the Gabba. Pattinson took 6 for 32 as the Bulls were skittled for 125 in their second innings, setting Victoria a target of 48 that the openers Rob Quiney and Chris Rogers cruised to without losing a wicket.

It was the second successive ten-wicket win for the Bushrangers after they cleaned up Western Australia in Perth, and no team has yet passed 200 against them. That is perhaps not surprising given the quality of Victoria's attack, and in this match it was Pattinson who provided the bulk of the wickets.

Only three Queensland players reached double figures in their second innings and their last seven wickets fell for 32 runs as Pattinson and John Hastings caused all sorts of problems. Earlier, Victoria had been dismissed for 227 as Matthew Wade (89) missed a century.

    @Jono Makim - it would SOLEY be on that haircut! LOL! @ JimDavis on (October 12 2012, 12:29 PM GMT) - I normally don't put much stock in the rankings, but maybe the allrounder rankings are onto something - Siddle was ranked 7th in April! @ azzaman333 - the Vic attack could be easily said to be of International standard as 3 pacers have Test experience, Hastings a short form specialist (despite a very good FC ave) & Holland played for Oz A. @hyclass on (October 12 2012, 14:20 PM GMT) - no arguements on that. I think T20 must be given limited exposure to players in the system between 16 & 24. I am pleased that K Patterson of NSW initially turned down a BBL contract (not sure how long he could last on that). Assuming T20 is here to stay, I vehemently believe the Futures League must be beefed up during the BBL. There should be games of a standard whereby in the example of last year, S Marsh could play in a near FC fixture instead of the T20 match he used as a guide to say he was fit!

    OZ future of fast bowling very much secured with Pattinson, Starc and Cummins. Fantastic young prospects !!!

    The Victorian bowling lineup is almost test class. Siddle and Pattinson are clearly up to that standard, McKay is no mug, and Hastings is a capable allrounder. Only thing lacking is a genuine quality spin bowler, and even then Holland is one of the better spinners in the country (although that probably says more about how weak our spin stocks are than anything else).

    @Rickyvoncanterbury, agree with you that our strength is our bowling -

    Surprised to state that, given how bad we were after Ashes 2010 with our bowling resources - Mitch had deceived, Hilfy was hardly threatening and Sidds wasn't consistent. How things have changed - A rejunevated Sid, born-again Hilfy, Pattinson, Cummins, Starc and the list goes on. While feeling fantastic about this, assuming that we bat first, for our bowlers to defend something against a batting lineup that has Kallis, Amla, Smith and ABD, we need to put up something on board - Hope Punter/Pup/Huss take the lead with the others chipping in. And we have got the game on hand !! God bless Aus !!

    I think players who predate T20 have a distinct advantage.The older players like Ponting, Clarke, Hussey & to a lesser extent Watson,have games crystalised in 1st class cricket & List A. There is a knowledge & ability formed from long crease tenures upon which they may rely in testing circumstances. Guys like Cook & Trott in the Ashes reinforced the value of the same old school nouse,endurance and patience and simple yet effective game plans. The core tenets of batsmanship are steeped in the wisdom of crickets history. Their principles cannot be defied with success for any meaningful period. Its why long term observation of players results is so much more important than brief & often illusory runs of form. Cosgrove has played the same brand of cricket from the first. No reasoned pleas from admirers have had the slightest impact. Watson still lacks endurance. There is little to convince it will change. The batting hopes will rest with Ponting,Clarke & Hussey-again.Its damning evidence.

    @ Pras_Punter IMO its all about bowling out the opposition twice, in the old days it was easy score 400 min in the first innings and then win by 8 or 9 wickets or an innings and lots, now we need to start winning by 20 or 30 runs or 1 or 2 wickets , so play to our strength BOWLING, your batsmen do not need to score 350 if the opposition only score 280.

    good win vics verry easy

  • Anthony on October 12, 2012, 12:29 GMT

    How is Dutchy supposed to get any time to bowl in the middle? Traditionally WA and Queensland away would be lost causes for the Vic's. That's two games now changed by Siddle's batting, which has to be used to highlight the poor quality of the batting on display for WA, QLD and the Vic top order. It's a decent sounding bowling attack for the Vics, but what is needed in oz is for the bats to stand up for themselves and test the bowlers in the shield before we pick an oz team that gets slapped about by quality test batsmen once again.

  • Prasanna on October 12, 2012, 12:22 GMT

    @Rickyvoncenterbury, mate we all have missed another spin option - assuming he is picked - David Warner can turn the ball pretty well and was among a couple of wickets in WI. So lets go with 4 pacers + Watto + Clarke + Warner. And Pup has also used Huss off-late. Hope the batting works as an unit and scores atleast 350+ . Then its game on.

    @Meety ...I have to agree , I have heard the saying, the hair stood up on my neck,,never stood up on my forehead
