Queensland won the toss and decided to bat against New South Wales at the Drummoyne Oval, Sydney, today in the JLT Cup.

Queensland 296 (Chris Lynn 135, Sam Heazlett 48; Chris Green 5-53)

New South Wales 300-4 (Moises Henriques 134*, Jack Edwards 116)

Result – New South Wales won by 6 wickets

Queensland were all out for 296 with nearly 3 overs left and will have been disappointed not to have scored a lot more, after the excellent batting of Chris Lynn 135, Sam Heazlett 48 and Joe Burns 30, gave them a strong platform from which to push on to a big score. However, some great bowling from Chris Green 5-53 took the Queensland middle order away.

In reply, New South Wales romped home by 6 wickets mainly thanks to Moises Henriques 134* and Jack Edwards 116, who batted brilliantly.A day to remember for 18-year-old Jack Edwards - the youngest man to score a ton in the domestic one-day cup.
