46th Over
Thanks for sticking with us in this match here in Brisbane in what's been a difficult week for cricket. We need to send a massive thank you and congratulations to the staff here who worked tirelessly to get a game happening. See you next time.
Queensland 7/222 - Townsend 100*, Peirson 38, Bennett 4/35 drew with ACT 143 - Oakley 47, Devoy 43*, McDonald 4/31, Fitzpatrick 3/44). Points - QLD 2, ACT 0
New South Wales are now on top of the table, but WA could still take the title with a massive win in their final match.
We had a really good battle for 1st Innings points this afternoon and if ACT had won that, they would have taken the series. However Wade Townsend stood in their way with a fine unbeaten century. Once the total was passed, the runs flowed quickly.
We've done well to get a contest in this match considering we lost a total of more than 3 days, due to 200mm of rain since Monday morning. The toss was crucial as the pitch today was much easier to bat on than it was last night.
