Tasmania 8 for 236 (Wells 82, Harris 3-77) v Queensland

Ryan Harris' three wickets in his return to first-class cricket after an 11-month absence ensured Queensland did not allow Tasmania to get away after the visitors were sent in to bat at the Gabba.

The Bulls must win outright to keep in contention for the Sheffield Shield final, and were initially frustrated by a stubborn opening stand from Mark Cosgrove and Jordan Silk.

However, Harris and James Hopes made frequent incisions thereafter to keep the Tigers in check, despite a fluent 82 by Jon Wells which held the middle order together.

Harris' ability to get through 25 overs for the day will hearten the national selectors ahead of the Ashes later this year, though they will be mindful of how he backs up from the exertions later in the match following a long lay-off due to shoulder surgery.

A ton by Burns needs to have him firmly in the NSPs sights for the Ashes tour.

@ blink182alex on (March 7, 2013, 19:03 GMT) - good pick up, although I think Hauritz might be still injured. Personally, I am amazed that the match was played on time as the weather has been atrocious in Brisbane.
