Victoria 3 for 265 (Hussey 107*, Wade 58*) trail New South Wales 366 (Nevill 87, Rohrer 70, Henry 63, Patterson 53, Boland 6-67) by 101 runs

David Hussey clattered a rapid century in the company of Matthew Wade to push Victoria to within sight of the New South Wales' first-innings score on a good day two for batsmen in the Sheffield Shield match at the MCG.

The Blues were able to stretch their first innings out to 366 thanks to a last wicket stand of 89 between the captain Peter Nevill and the No. 11 Josh Hazlewood. Victoria lost wickets at regular intervals to keep NSW slightly ahead of the match into the afternoon, as Hazlewood and Gurinder Sandhu both bowled decent spells.

But Hussey was able to go after the inexperienced NSW spin duo of Patrick Jackson and Will Somerville, and Wade joined him in accelerating towards the end of the day.
