78th Over
The XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls defeated the South Australia West End Redbacks by 191 runs. Thanks everyone for reading and we'll have more for you in the next few days. Goodbye from the Gabba.
Queensland 398 (Cutting 109, Khawaja 88, Putland 5/100) & 8d/248 (Hartley 103*, Sayers 3/66, Mennie 3/74) def. South Australia 184 (Hughes 95, Hopes 5/27) & 271 (Hughes 83, Mennie 79*, Feldman 4/50, Cutting 3/51). Points - QLD 6, SA 0. MOTM - Cutting.
Phil Hughes and Usman Khawaja also batted very well while Chris Hartley was outstanding for his century yesterday with his side in a bit of trouble when he arrived. James Hopes had a very strong all-round game while Sayers and Putland bowled well for SA.
Ben Cutting was named man of the match as much for his batting than his bowling. His maiden century on Day 2, the majority scored in a session, gave the Bulls all the momentum in bowler-friendly conditions. He then scored key runs in setting the target.
The Redbacks resisted for an hour this morning but the introduction of Cutting sparked a 5/18 collapse that ended up seeing the game wrapped up in an extended pre-Lunch session. Joe Mennie batted very well to reduce the margin.
The XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls have made the perfect start to their 2012/13 Bupa Sheffield Shield campaign as they look to go back-to-back. They were clearly the better side at the Gabba this week and the 191 run margin reflects that.

36th Over: There are 105 overs scheduled today and the XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls have James Hopes (1/10) bowling the first of them. The SA West End Redbacks have Phil Hughes (58) and Callum Ferguson (31) at the crease.
Batting conditions are at their best in the game now. Since Lunch yesterday the swing and seam off the pitch has been reduced - not removed totally however. There is still enough for the bowlers which sets up an interesting day. Play starts at 9:30am.
The task is all ahead of the Redbacks today. They will resume at 2/111 chasing a target of 463 runs to win. That seems to be nearly impossible but with Phil Hughes and Callum Ferguson at the crease, they can remain hopeful of saving the match for a draw.
We've seen a very interesting match with conditions favouring the bowlers. However that hasn't stopped some wonderful batting. We've seen two great, yet different types, of centuries plus a 95 and an 88 in the hardest of all conditions.
Good morning everyone and welcome to another sunny Brisbane morning for the final day of this Bupa Sheffield Shield match between the XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls and the SA West End Redbacks.
STUMPS Day 3: SA 2/111 (Hughes 58*, Ferguson 31*, Hopes 1/10, Cutting 1/19) & 184 (Hughes 95, Hopes 5/27) trail QLD 398 (Cutting 109, Khawaja 88, Putland 5/100) & 8d/248 (Hartley 103*, Sayers 3/66) by 351 runs. Play continues tomorrow from 9:30am.
Queensland have had a good day thanks largely to James Hopes and Chris Hartley. Hopes picked up a couple of wickets and Hartley was tremendous for his 7th First Class century. The Bulls are 8 wickets away from a big opening victory.
The Redbacks continue to battle hard but they have a huge task ahead of them to save this match. They still trail by 351 runs and any chance of winning the game is probably gone. But the Redbacks can certainly still save it.
