Renshaw's maiden ton steers Queensland
Queensland 4 for 215 (Renshaw 116*) v New South Wales
Opener Matt Renshaw scored his maiden first-class century on a day of slow scoring for Queensland in their Sheffield Shield match against New South Wales in Mackay. At stumps on the first day, the Bulls had moved along to 4 for 215 with Renshaw still at the crease on 116, and he was batting with Jason Floros, who was on 9.
Renshaw's innings had taken 301 deliveries and included just five fours and one six, the slow pitch leading to a Queensland run rate of 2.23 across the day. Scott Henry fell early on when he hooked Sean Abbott to fine leg and was caught for 4 off 39 balls, and after a 76-run second-wicket stand Sam Heazlett fell to the spin of Will Somerville for 34.
Marnus Labuschagne was run out for 19 off 62 balls and Somerville again chipped in to get rid of Nathan Reardon for 22. The match is the first Sheffield Shield game played in Mackay.
