Queensland 3 for 136 (Burns 76*) trail Tasmania 350 (Cowan 93, Cazzulino 63, Cutting 4-54) by 214 runs
Scorecard

Tasmania's lower-order batsmen made useful contributions to put up a competitive total, one that appeared stronger after the bowlers dismissed three Queensland batsmen cheaply at Bellerive Oval.

Resuming on 5 for 244, Tasmania lost Ben Dunk before he scored on the second day, and Tim Paine added only 27 to his overnight 12. Xavier Doherty and Sam Rainbird scored 32 and 26 to take the score to 350. Ben Cutting finished with 4 for 54 for Queensland, while Alister McDermott claimed 3 for 58.

Rainbird made the first breakthrough for Tasmania, having Queensland opener Luke Pomersbach caught behind for 12. Joe Burns added 50 for the second wicket with Dom Michael, who was then lbw to Andrew Fekete for 22. Ben Hilfenhaus bowled Nick Stevens for 2, and by stumps Burns had contributed 76 to Queensland's 3 for 136.

Why no Lynn or Khawaja for Qld? Both injured?

Joe Burns should be the next uncapped batsmen to get a Baggy Green. Career FC ave 42, & currently this season 58. He is younger than Doolan - imo, much more upside!
