Some skilled swings and Tasmanian tailoring bowling in cloud conditions put them in control of their Shield clash against Queensland in the Gabba.

Only 69 game passes were possible on the second day due to rain, but Tigers sailors Jackson Bird, Gabe Bell, Sam Rainbird and Tom Rogers quickly passed the Queensland order in the grim conditions of the afternoon.

Four of the five windows that fell were clean, everything was clean. Those almost unenforceable deliveries that turned and sewed. Queensland debutant Nathan McSweeney was the only batter specializing in survival; He managed an undefeated 24. Jimmy Peirson faced nine balls in three races to move to the stumps in five down.

Previously, Tasmania's goalkeeper, Matthew Wade, made an excellent undefeated half-century to take the Tigers to more than 350. 72 did not come out of 137 balls and got outstanding support from Bird who made 30 of 21 balls. Bird did most of the scoring in the 39-race run for the ninth with Wade.

Peter George was chosen by the Queensland players, claiming 4 of 76, while Mark Steketee and Luke Feldman took three windows each. 19659008]
