Peter Nevill and Gurinder Sandhu starred with the bat to help New South Wales to 345 in their first innings. Nevill made 112 from 248 deliveries and shared a 116-run eighth wicket stand with the No. 9 Sandhu, who made 77 from 90, striking five fours and three sixes.

Western Australia's 19-year old seamer David Moody picked up four wickets for 60 runs getting four of NSW's top six batsmen.

Sandhu then broke Western Australia's opening stand of 21 when he had Cameron Bancroft caught behind for 13, and Marcus Harris (46) and Micheal Klinger (38) were both run out by Kurtis Patterson soon after sharing 79-run, second-wicket stand.

Spinners Nathan Lyon and Steven O'Keefe removed Shaun Marsh and Nathan Rimmington within a space of four deliveries to leave the visitors at 5 for 150. Captain Adam Voges and wicketkeeper Sam Whiteman were unbeaten on 35 and 2 respectively when stumps were drawn on the second day.
