Summary

  • Some inspired bowling from teenage paceman Will Sutherland has helped Victoria open the domestic cricket season with a nervy 13-run one-day cup win over Queensland in Townsville.
  • In pursuit of a gettable target of 241 for victory, Queensland were immediately on the back foot on Sunday, slipping to 6-79 before eventually being dismissed for 227 from 46.5 overs.
  • At 8-145, Queensland appeared dead and buried but an unlikely run-a-ball 77 from No.9 Mitch Swepson carried the home side to within sight of an improbable victory.
  • In just his third match in the competition, Sutherland returned figures of 5-45 from his 10 overs, having dismissed five of Victoria’s seven recognised batsman.
  • Sutherland’s return included the wicket of Bulls’ captain Chris Lynn, with the star limited-overs batsman caught for a three-ball duck after flashing a wide ball to point.
