Harris and Short combine to lead Victoria to remarkable win

Harris and Short combine to lead Victoria to remarkable win

An incredible partnership between Marcus Harris and Matt Short has led Victoria to an unlikely victory late on Day 4 against Queensland at the CitiPower Centre.

After Queensland began the day at 1-135 with a lead of 232 runs, an inspiring spell from Jon Holland (5-72) saw the Bulls collapse and declare at 7d-202, setting a target of 300 runs for Victoria to win.

The 182-run partnership between Harris (174) and Short (60) set Victoria up for victory, however not without some late drama as the Vics lost three wickets with less than 10 runs remaining to win.

Seb Gotch (11*) then sealed the win with a six down long on to help cement Victoria’s position on top of the JLT Sheffield Shield table.

Victoria next host Tasmania at the CitiPower Centre from Tuesday March 5 to Friday March 8.
