Hazlewood helps skittle Western Australia for 150
New South Wales 2 for 84 (Jaques 38*) trail Western Australia 150 (Robinson 52, Hazlewood 4-51) by 66 runs
New South Wales gained the advantage over Western Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground, bowling them out for 150 and reaching 2 for 48 in response. After most of the first day was washed out, 20-year-old fast bowler Josh Hazlewood caused problems on the second morning. He bowled Marcus Harris with an offcutter and then dismissed Travis Birt. Wes Robinson fought and got a half-century but Hazlewood took two more wickets and Josh Lalor grabbed three to bowl Western Australia out for 150.
Nathan Rimmington struck early but Tim Cruickshank and Phil Jacques steadied the innings before Cruickshank was dismissed just before play ended for the day. Captain Simon Katich joined Jaques, who finished the day 38 not out.
