Victoria won the toss early in the day and elected to bat. After a good start at the crease, Victoria’s wickets tumbled quickly as they dropped to 4-124 before the 50 over mark.

Pace bowler Trent Copeland (2-61) took charge with the ball early for the Blues, dismissing Will Pucovski (17) and Seb Gotch (2) in quick succession. Abbott (2-77), Conway (1-50) and Henriques (1-22) also claimed wickets.  

Despite the mounting pressure form the Blues, Harris continued to guide the Victorian’s through the first innings, forging a solid 80 run partnership with Matt Short (34) and a 47 partnership with Pattinson (11*) before losing his wicket 10 overs before stumps.
