Scorecard

A collapse which saw them lose seven wickets for 75 runs ended Queensland's hopes of a place in the Sheffield Shield final, as they lost to Western Australia by 95 runs.

Asked to chase 312 on the final day after the visitors were bowled out for 173, Queensland were in the race at tea, needing 185 with seven wickets in hand. However, they slid from 3 for 141 to 216 all out to crash to a defeat.

Queensland had begun well in their chase; their openers Joe Burns and Chris Hemphrey brought up their second 50-plus partnership of the match, adding 61, before Andrew Tye removed Burns to pick up the first of his three wickets. He struck again two overs later to dismiss Peter Forrest for a duck.

Hemphrey and Chris Lynn stitched together 55 runs before the former fell within touching distance of a half-century for the second time in the game, losing his wicket to Ashton Agar.

Nathan Coulter-Nile and Tye then proceeded to remove Lynn, who scored his second fifty of the match, Chris Hartley and Michael Philipson in the space of three overs. When captain James Hopes returned to the pavillion, Queensland were 7 for 160.

Cameron Boyce, who scored 42 off 45 balls, and Jack Wildermuth, with a 21-ball 27, quickened the tempo and sustained the fight, but it wasn't long before Queensland were bowled out, Boyce the last man to fall, off Agar, in the 70th over.

Western Australia hadn't done a lot better with the bat, adding only 20 runs to their overnight total and losing four wickets inside seven overs. Coulter-Nile was the first man to go, run out off the seventh ball of the day.

Nathan Rimmington and Tye followed suit soon after; captain Adam Voges was the last batsman to exit, dismissed by Peter George, who claimed four wickets.

Western Australia's win means that their clash with New South Wales in Perth will decide one of the places in the Shield final.
