Tasmania 200 (Bailey 55, Neser 3-39, Steketee 3-73) and 0 for 10 need another 342 runs to beat Queensland 9 for 405 dec and 6 for 146 dec
Queensland's stand-in captain, Chris Hartley, set Tasmania a hefty target of 352 for victory on the third day at the Gabba, after he earlier broke the all-time record for Sheffield Shield wicketkeeping dismissals. At stumps, the Tigers had survived five overs without damage and were 0 for 10, with Jake Hancock on 5 and Jordan Silk yet to score.
The day began with the Tigers on 4 for 113 in their first innings, but the dismissal of captain George Bailey for 55 to Mark Steketee (3 for 73) allowed Queensland a look at the Tasmania lower order. However, it was an unexpected bowler who claimed the next wicket - bowling offspin, Joe Burns picked up his maiden first-class wicket when he had Jake Doran caught at short leg.
Then came Hartley's record-breaking catch, when he gloved Simon Milenko's edge off the bowling of Michael Neser. It took Hartley clear of Darren Berry's record of 546 Sheffield Shield dismissals, and into the outright lead. Tasmania were all out for 200, and Queensland added 6 for 146 in reply before declaring to set the Tigers a target.
