Nevill helps New South Wales stave off defeat

New South Wales 402 and 5 for 155 (Nevill 69, Paris 4-37) drew with Western Australia 491
Scorecard

Australia's wicketkeeper Peter Nevill warmed up for the Test series in New Zealand with a patient half-century to help New South Wales play out a draw with Western Australia in Lincoln. Nevill scored 69 in the second New South Wales innings and Joel Paris picked up four wickets before the match ended with the Blues on 5 for 155, with a lead of 66 runs.

The day had started with New South Wales on 1 for 11 and they soon lost nightwatchman Nathan Lyon, who was lbw to Paris for 3, and Kurtis Patterson, who was bowled by Paris for 21. Ben Rohrer's dismissal for 20 gave the Warriors hope of running through New South Wales in time to push for victory, but Nevill and captain Nic Maddinson shut things down effectively.

Their partnership added only 75 runs but most importantly used up more than 50 overs as they frustrated Western Australia's attack. Nevill was eventually bowled by Paris for 69 from 210 deliveries but the Blues had done enough, with Maddinson finishing unbeaten on 26 from 165 balls and Trent Copeland on 2.
