144th Over
The XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls defeated the South Australian West End Redbacks by 5 wickets, with 52 balls to spare. Thanks for following the action in this Bupa Sheffield Shield match.
Queensland 135 (Mennie 3/31, Sayers 3/40) & 5/471 (Khawaja 182*, Burns 72, Hopes 58, Hartley 48*) defeated South Australia 403 (Cooper 175, Botha 95, Hopes 4/71) & 6d/202 (Ferguson 70*, Botha 40). Points - QLD 6, SA 2. Man of the Match - Usman Khawaja
We also shouldn't forget Tom Cooper's 175 in the first innings to help set the big total, while Johan Botha had a strong game all around with bat and ball. It was a remarkable game with Queensland coming away in the end, with a famous victory.
While they will be disappointed for sure, the Redbacks would also know they are well placed in the competition. They will maintain top spot courtesy of the 1st Innings points and with three games to go, are nicely placed to make or even host the Final.
That was an absolute gem of an innings from Khawaja and as mentioned in the call, it's the second highest successful run chase ever in Bupa Sheffield Shield history! It also keeps the season alive for the Queensland Bulls.
The star of the day was undoubtedly Usman Khawaja. He batted all day, more than 7 and a half hours in total, to anchor and then execute this run chase. He blazed 23 boundaries and when he put the foot down after Tea, the bowlers had no answers.
The Bulls needed 163 runs off 36 overs in the final session of the match, and they got there with more than 8 overs to spare! Five of the six partnerships registered 50 or more runs which in the end decided this match.
The Bulls only scored 45 runs in the morning session and were very cautious against the new ball. They knew if they survived that, kept wickets in hand and could build partnerships they'd get close by the end of the day. Which is exactly what happened.
Queensland were rolled for 135 in their first innings but there was some real grit and determination shown from everyone on the next attempt. It was set up yesterday by the openers before they executed the plan perfectly today.
In hindsight SA might regret not enforcing the follow-on late on Day 2 despite being 268 runs ahead, and having an 11 over session available. Had they done that then this match could have finished yesterday. They came up against special batting today.
Well, what can you say? The Redbacks had this match in control until about Tea on the final day. They struggled to take wickets in the second innings but didn't bowl badly or drop any genuine chances. They conceded just 4 extras but have lost the game.
U.Khawaja - 182* (320 balls, 461 minutes). C.Hartley - 48* (59 balls, 76 minutes). Unbeaten 6th wicket partnership (Khawaja/Hartley) of 97 runs (108 balls, 76 minutes).

The final session of the match is about to begin under bright sunshine. XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls need 163, and South Australian West End 6 wickets from 36 overs. Johan Botha (1/63) to bowl at the Stanley St end.
TEA Day 4: QLD 4/308 (Khawaja 103*, Hopes 23*, Burns 72) & 135 (Mennie 3/31, Sayers 3/40) trail SA 403 (Cooper 175, Botha 95, Hopes 4/71) & 6d/202 (Ferguson 70*, Botha 40) by 162 runs. The final session of this match begins at 3pm local time.
Usman Khawaja has played very well for his 12th First Class century, and has given the Bulls an outside chance. The equation now is 163 runs to win off 36 overs, with 6 wickets in hand. That equation is achievable for both sides if they get momentum.
South Australia managed just the wicket of Forrest in that session and maybe, have some uneasy thoughts in the back of their minds now. They will need to take a few quick wickets if they hope to win, and might have an eye on the runs required now.

Welcome back to the Gabba where the XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls need 256 runs from 65 overs. The SA West End Redbacks need 7 wickets as Gary Putland (0/52) gets ready at the Vulture St end.
LUNCH Day 4: QLD 3/215 (Khawaja 57*, Forrest 11*, Burns 72, Mennie 1/34) & 135 (Mennie 3/31, Sayers 3/40) trail SA 403 (Cooper 175, Botha 95, Hopes 4/71) & 6d/202 (Ferguson 70*, Botha 40) by 255 runs. Play resumes at 12:30pm local time.
South Australia have plenty of runs to work with and a virtually brand new ball so they can throw everything at these last 7 wickets. They've bowled well this morning and need to keep plugging away on a fairly flat pitch not offering a lot of assistance.
That session probably means a Queensland victory can be taken off the table. They haven't shown any intent to go after the runs, but the batting has been very good to try and save the game for a Draw. The batting has been very patient and watchful.

Players and umpires are on their way to the middle. The XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls have Usman Khawaja (26) and Nick Stevens (24) at the crease. Joe Mennie (0/20) has the ball for the SA West End Redbacks at the Stanley St end.
We're about 35 minutes away from the XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls and the South Australian West End Redbacks resuming this match. We'll have every ball covered with the first of those at 10am local time.
The forecast is for possible showers to roll in throughout the afternoon but hopefully they stay away and we get the best team claiming 6 points. The overall equation is 471 runs off a minimum 152 overs - and 301 off 96 overs on this final day.
Yesterday South Australia took both wickets by changing their plan. They dried up the runs at both ends to produce two attempts at a big shot. Johan Botha had a big role in that and he will be a key bowler today. Chadd Sayers can also fill that role.
Scoring 300 runs on a last day pitch doesn't faze teams these days like it once did. Queensland have a very good start at 2/170 and will know if they bat positively, but with caution, the runs will look after themselves.
Then, we have the prospect of a record run chase. Queensland wouldn't be thinking of the 471 run target today. They will be aiming to just bat, and know if they still have wickets in hand at 5pm then they will possibly be close to the target anyway.
The pitch is still good for batting. A few balls have continued to move around but that only tends to happen under an overcast sky, and we don't have that at the moment. Batting for a Draw would be a bit easier, despite some signs of variable bounce.
We're set up to perhaps go the distance today with all results still possible. South Australia have been in front for the entire match and will be favourites to pick up maximum points. They'll have a new ball to use about 20 minutes before Lunch.
Hello and welcome to a cracking Saturday morning in Brisbane, for what potentially could be a very exciting Day 4 of this Bupa Sheffield Shield match. The XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls need 301 runs, the South Australian West End Redbacks need 8 wickets.
This Bupa Sheffield Shield match concludes tomorrow with the XXXX Gold Queensland Bulls needing 301 runs and the SA West End Redbacks after 8 wickets for the outright win. Thanks for reading, and see you tomorrow from 10am local time.
STUMPS Day 3: QLD 2/170 (Khawaja 26*, Stevens 24*, Burns 72, Pomersbach 47) & 135 (Mennie 3/31, Sayers 3/40) trail SA 403 (Cooper 175, Botha 95, Hopes 4/71) & 6d/202 (Ferguson 70*, Botha 40) by 300 runs.
South Australia will be a bit disappointed at having just the 2 wickets, but also well aware they are still in prime position. They need 8 wickets tomorrow on a last day pitch that is just starting to show the odd sign of variable bounce.
That ends a good fight from Queensland today who didn't roll over despite being behind in the match. They knuckled down and batted well this afternoon to give themselves every chance of saving the game, and who knows maybe even winning it.
