After missing out on the first inning, incumbent test opener Marcus Harris made a promising start with an undefeated 41 as Victoria counterattacked to dominate the match against Bruce on the second day.
Following 199, Bruce’s inexperienced batting lineup collapsed, losing the last eight wickets of 62 against a Victorian attack that lost retired speed demon James Pattinson.
NSW batters did not reach 50, and skipper Curtis Patterson top scored 48 with a total of 151 blues. The blues batter was a disappointing performance as he did not show the resilience of the regular No. 11 Harry Conway. As a night watchman, I put out 20 out of 87 balls.
Victoria reached 1-75 on the stump on the second day, scoring 123 leads in the low-scoring game.
