New South Wales 8 for 332 (Maddison 132, DP Hughes 68, Hinchliffe 4-72) beat Cricket Australia XI 239 (Bryant 89, Bollinger 3-62)
A Nic Maddinson century and an even contribution from the bowlers hurried New South Wales to a 93-run victory over the Cricket Australia XI in the domestic limited overs match at Hurstville Oval in Sydney.
Maddinson added 132 with his opening partner Daniel Hughes to set the platform for a healthy NSW total, before the left-arm wrist spinner Clint Hinchliffe worked his way through the middle order with some artful variety. Ryan Gibson also offered useful innings to the Blues’ cause.
During the course of the match, NSW’s gloveman Peter Nevill equaled the List A wicketkeeping world record, affecting eight dismissals which included six catches and two stumpings.
At 1 for 117 in the 16th over the composite team were in good position to chase down the hosts’ total, but a parsimonious spell from Nathan Lyon played a key role in stalling their momentum – a strong response to his rough treatment by Alex Ross at the same ground on Friday.
