Queensland 3 for 53 (Bollinger 3-26) trail New South Wales 9 for 397 dec (Carters 154, Nevill 70, Boyce 3-80) by 344
Ryan Carters and Doug Bollinger put New South Wales in a strong position against Queensland on the second day in Sydney. Carters scored his maiden first-class hundred to take NSW close to 400, and Bollinger picked three wickets in five overs to leave Queensland at 21 for 3 in the seventh over.
NSW started the day at 140 for 3 but lost Moises Henriques on the first ball of the day to Michael Neser. Once Kurtis Patterson was bowled by Cameron Boyce for 22, NSW were struggling at 187 for 5. Carters and Peter Nevill took them to safety by stitching a 144-run partnership and crossed 300. Carters scored 154 with the help of 17 fours, before being trapped lbw by Nathan Hauritz. Carter's ton and Nevill's 70, along with useful contributions from Trent Copeland and Sean Abbott, helped the team put on a formidable 397 before declaring.
In the 15 overs Queensland batted, they lost all three wickets to Bollinger, who trapped Greg Moller lbw for a duck in the first over and then bowled the other opener Nathan Reardon for 3 in the fifth over. Just when Usman Khawaja reached double-figures, he was caught behind in the seventh over. Queensland avoided any more damage in the next eight overs with the help of Chris Lynn and Peter Forrest, who were unbeaten on 18 and 13 respectively.
