Queensland 287 beat Tasmania 129 and 130 (Krejza 42*, Harris 7-60) by an innings and 28 runs
Ryan Harris has hit his peak ahead of the upcoming Test series in South Africa, taking a career-best 7 for 60 as Queensland thrashed Tasmania within three days at the Gabba. Following on, the Tigers resumed at 5 for 66, needing another 92 runs to make the Bulls bat again, but they stumbled to a 28-run loss as Harris ran through the lower order.
Harris flies out on Saturday to join Australia's Test squad ahead of the tour match in Potchefstroom and he should be full of confidence following his efforts over the past two days. He collected nine wickets for the match and struck with the fourth ball of the third day, when Luke Butterworth was caught behind for a duck.
Steve Magoffin had the last of the recognised batsmen, Alex Doolan, caught for 30 but the bowler left the field soon afterwards with a calf injury. He wasn't required, though, as Harris picked up the remaining three wickets, although a 41-run stand between Jason Krejza and Ben Hilfenhaus at least hinted at resistance from the Tigers.
Hilfenhaus had been dropped in the slips twice before he had scored, both times off Harris, and he was eventually bowled for 12. Later in the same over, Harris had Adam Maher caught at gully, leaving Krejza not out on 42 and ensuring Queensland continued their strong start to the season; they are so far unbeaten in both formats.
