Sheffield Shield 2016-17, Round four


Queensland have snatched a dramatic 97-run Sheffield Shield win over Western Australia in Townsville.

Set 335 for victory, the Warriors looked to making a fist of the chase at 4-221 with Ashton Turner (49) and stand-in captain Michael Klinger (65) at the crease.

But after Bulls leg-spinner Mitch Swepson claimed Turner caught-and-bowled, it sparked a collapse of 5-16.

Ben Cutting (3-48) took the final wicket of David Moody to seal the win, with WA speedster Jason Behrendorff unable to bat due to a leg stress fracture suffered on Sunday.

WA were bowled out for 237, with Swepson finshing with 3-56 in an impressive display.

Earlier, Mitch Marsh snared 4-38 in the Bulls' second innings but unbeaten half-centuries to skipper Chris Hartley (53) and Michael Neser (53) saw the Bulls set WA a daunting chase.

Queensland declared at 6-252 after resuming on 4-130.
