Gold Coaster’s sensational innings not enough for QLD Cricket win

Gold Coaster Michael Neser has blasted a remarkable, almost match-winning, century in Queensland’s tight JLT One-Day loss to Western Australia.

The fast bowling all-rounder hit seven 6’s and eight 4’s in his man-of-the-match winning 122 run innings yesterday.

Queensland ended up losing the game by 11 runs.


Earlier, Queensland struggled with the ball, as Western Australia posted 301 runs off 40.1 overs.

Ben Cutting was the best of Queensland’s bowlers, picking up 2 wickets.

The Bulls faced an uphill battle in the rain-affected match from the start of their innings, losing Australian Test opener Matt Renshaw and former Test batsman Joe Burns within the opening overs.

Usman Khawaja continued his strong form in the One-Day competition belting 81 runs from 78 balls.

However, a steady trickle of wickets kept Queensland out of the game.

They’re still in with a chance of playing finals but must secure a win against New South Wales tomorrow.
