Lyon puts NSW on top despite Stoinis ton

Victoria 8 for 239 (Stoinis 107, Christian 53, Lyon 3-68) trail New South Wales 341 (Patterson 82, Lyon 75, Carters 69, Tremain 4-47, Holland 3-83) by 102 runs
Scorecard

Marcus Stoinis made a fighting hundred but after two days in Alice Springs, Victoria had a mountain of work still ahead of them in their battle with New South Wales for a place in the Sheffield Shield final. At stumps, the Bushrangers were 8 for 239 in reply to the 341 scored by the Blues, with Chris Tremain at the crease on 6 and Jon Holland yet to score.

Victoria had been in early trouble at 2 for 4 but Stoinis, batting at first drop, steadied the innings in a series of partnerships that culminated in a 132-run stand with Daniel Christian. Stoinis scored his third first-class century and was eventually out for 107 - one of three wickets for Nathan Lyon - while Christian fell for 53.

It was a busy day for Lyon, who began the morning unbeaten on 7 with New South Wales on 8 for 262. He took an aggressive approach to his tail-end innings and struck five sixes and seven fours on his way to 75 from 46 deliveries - the first half-century of his first-class career.
