Western Australia raced to a three-day victory over Queensland at the Gabba to repay Brett Dorey for his maiden ten-wicket match haul. Dorey backed up his 6 for 28 in the first innings with 5 for 60 in the second as the Bulls were dismissed for 179, giving the visitors a chase of 191 to stay in finals contention.
Queensland had them 2 for 36 but Wes Robinson followed his 78 on Saturday with a cool 46 while Adam Voges' unbeaten 80 pushed the visitors to 4 for 193 in gloomy conditions. It was a fine all-round game for Voges, who also grabbed seven catches.
Rain stole about an hour in the first session and interrupted again late in the day. However, there was enough time for the players to earn a day off after the Warriors moved to third.
Resuming at 4 for 110, Lee Carseldine did not stay long before nicking Steve Magoffin on 55 and Dorey stepped in for four of the final five wickets. Magoffin provided excellent support with 4 for 62 as the bowlers took advantage of the steamy conditions that have helped them throughout the game.
