Queensland collapse but remain on top

Queensland 9 for 472 dec and 7 for 102 (Abbott 3-23) lead New South Wales 302 (Maddinson 118, Abbott 58, Feldman 5-83, Harris 3-59) by 272 runs
Scorecard

Queensland collapsed badly in their second innings at the Gabba but their strong first-innings effort ensured they finished the third day with a 272-run lead over New South Wales. At stumps the Bulls were on 7 for 102 with James Hopes on 21 and Ryan Harris on 9, and the wickets had been shared for New South Wales by Sean Abbott, Doug Bollinger and Gurinder Sandhu.

First-innings centurion Joe Burns made 22 before being removed by Sandhu and the No.3 Greg Moller scored 12 before being bowled by Abbott, who claimed three wickets, but they were the only batsmen to reach double figures until Hopes. It was a far cry from the first innings when Queensland had declared at 9 for 472, a total which set up a healthy advantage over the Blues.

New South Wales began the third day on 6 for 217 but the loss of Nic Maddinson for 118 early in the morning hurt their chances of getting anywhere close to Queensland's score. He was one of five wickets for Luke Feldman, and Australia's selectors will have been pleased to see Harris finish off the tail and end up with 3 for 59.
