BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Queensland bowled out defending champions New South Wales for 143 to take the advantage after the opening day of the Sheffield Shield domestic first-class cricket final in Australia.
At stumps, Queensland was 58-1 in the five-day match at Allan Border Field. Queensland opener Bryce Street was not out 14 while No. 3 Australian test batsman Marnus Labuschagne was unbeaten on 23.
After New South Wales won the toss, allrounder Michael Neser made quick work of the visitors by claiming 5-27. His new-ball partner Jack Wildermuth added 4-21.
Indian Premier League duties meant New South Wales was without Australian test players Steve Smith, Pat Cummins, David Warner and Moises Henriques.
