Feldman stars with bat and ball to boost Queensland

Tasmania 2 for 60 (Bailey 19*, Feldman 1-13, Neser 1-19) trail Queensland 255 (Renshaw 56, Feldman 47, Bell 3-43, Rainbird 3-50) by 195 runs
Scorecard

Luke Feldman struck a career-best 47 off 41 balls at No. 11 and followed it with the wicket of Tasmania opener Alex Doolan to boost Queensland on day one of their Sheffield Shield match at the Gabba. Feldman hit five fours and a six and added 72 for the last wicket at a run rate of 5.40 with Mitchell Swepson to haul his side from 183 for 9 to 255. Seamers Gabe Bell and Sam Rainbird picked up three wickets each for Tasmania.

Tasmania then lost both their openers in 11 overs but captain George Bailey and Jake Doran closed the day without any further damage.

After having opted to bat, Queensland had a solid start with Matt Renshaw and debutant opener Lachlan Pfeffer adding 90 for the first wicket. Bell and Rainbird then ran through the middle and lower order with assistance from Simon Milenko and Thomas Rogers. Queensland were in danger of folding for a sub-200 score before Feldman intervened.
