Rain has the final say
New South Wales 293 and 3 for 194 (Henry 81*, Nevill 61*, Hussey 2-16) drew with Victoria 330 (Rogers 125, White 72, Starc 4-72)
A dreary day in Sydney prevented a nicely poised match from being played to its conclusion as New South Wales and Victoria drew the Sheffield Shield encounter at the SCG.
Only five overs' play were possible, the batsmen Scott Henry and Peter Nevill nudging NSW to 3 for 194 and an overall lead of 157 before the umpires called the match off.
Victoria took the two first innings points thanks to a century by the opening batsman Chris Rogers, while Mitchell Starc's four wickets for the Blues enhanced his claims for a spot in the Australian Test team to play in Adelaide.
