Scorecard

Luke Feldman plucked four wickets as Queensland secured their first outright points of the Sheffield Shield with a resounding 182-run victory over Victoria at the Gabba.

Set 325 to win after Chris Lynn helped rush the Bulls' innings along on the final morning, the Bushrangers never seriously threatened in the chase, and rain ultimately became Queensland's greater foe as showers circled Brisbane while the hosts' set about securing the final few wickets of the match.

Feldman, who has bowled impressively for his state in between injuries over a career in which he has represented Australia A, claimed the key wickets of Matthew Wade and Cameron White early in the innings before returning to help round up the tail.

He was ably supported by Alister McDermott and Ben Cutting, who each bowled straight enough to defeat four batsmen bowled our lbw between them on the last afternoon of the match.
