Queensland 6 for 292 (Hartley 87, Khawaja 85, Henriques 3-67) defeated New South Wales 262 (Henry 65, Rohrer 80, Gannon 5-38) by 30 runs
An opening stand of 154 between the captain Chris Hartley and the opening batsman Usman Khawaja set Queensland on the path to a 30-run victory over New South Wales in the domestic limited overs match in Canberra.
Hartley and Khawaja laid a platform for the Bulls' eventual total of 6 for 292, its dimensions ultimately proving out of reach for the Blues despite a doughty rearguard from Ben Rohrer.
NSW lost regular wickets in their pursuit as Cameron Gannon picked up a first five-wicket haul of his domestic limited overs career, before Rohrer added 81 with Josh Lalor in a mere 56 balls to give the Bulls a fright.
The match was the last of the Australian domestic summer before the states break for the Twenty20 Big Bash League, which commences on December 7.
