Victoria ride on Hussey hundred

Victoria 4 for 340 (Hussey 119*, Quiney 87, Rogers 62) v Queensland
Scorecard

A century from David Hussey put Victoria on top on the first day at the MCG, where the unbeaten Queensland struggled to contain the hosts' top order. The openers Rob Quiney and Chris Rogers dominated early with a 133-run stand and by the close of play, Victoria had reached 4 for 340 with Hussey unbeaten on 119 and Andrew McDonald on 41.

Their partnership had reached 86 after Cameron White was caught behind for 21 off the bowling of Nathan Reardon. Queensland's leading fast bowler Ben Cutting bowled only nine overs for the day and was believed to be suffering from back soreness after spending much of the past week bowling in the nets at the Gabba trying to win a Test spot.

Cutting did collect the wicket of Aaron Finch, whose disappointing season continued with a duck when he was trapped lbw. Quiney and Rogers seemed to enjoy the midday start, both posting half-centuries after White won the toss and chose to bat.

Rogers and Quiney are both among the top four run scorers in the Shield so far this summer, Rogers' 62 taking him to second place and Quiney's 87 placing him fourth. Rogers was caught behind off the pace of Matthew Gale and Quiney missed the chance for a hundred when he edged behind off Reardon.
