Victoria 5 for 177 (Rogers 84*) trail New South Wales 293 by 116 runs
Chris Rogers kept Victoria in the hunt for first-innings points on a rain-affected second day at the SCG, where they finished 116 runs behind with five wickets in hand. The Bushrangers went to stumps on 5 for 177, with Rogers on 84 and Cameron White on 2, but the Blues had the momentum after picking up two late wickets through Steve O'Keefe and Josh Hazlewood.
O'Keefe had Glenn Maxwell caught at mid-off for 39, ending an 81-run stand with Rogers, before Hazlewood trapped Peter Handscomb lbw for a golden duck in the next over. While Maxwell and Rogers were together Victoria were moving along solidly, the pair having come together after Test aspirant Mitchell Starc picked up his only wicket for the day when David Hussey played on for 9.
Victoria had started the morning at 0 for 12 and the opening pair, Rogers and Ryan Carters, took the score along to 69 before Moises Henriques had Carters caught behind for 33. Aaron Finch was also caught behind off Henriques for 8.
