FORD RANGER CUP SCOREBOARD - ROUND 2
Queensland won the toss and elected to bat under overcast skies at the SCG,
but it was to be a frustrating stop-start affair for the next few hours; with
showers forcing the players off the field three times. But the third time the
rain was heavier and it didn't clear; and the contest was over.
In the cricket that did happen, Ryan Broad continued his strong start to the
season with an unbeaten 55, sharing in a 83 run partnership with Adam Nye.

Tasmania won by 6 wickets
Umpires -
S Davis, S John.
Player of the Match - Michael Dighton (Tasmania).
Rain affected the match between South Australia and Tasmania, reducing the
match to 45 overs per side. South Australia were dealt a rough blow when
Matthew Elliott was injured during his innings and was forced to retire. The
remainder of the batting lineup were unable to get a cohesive batting effort
together, several players making starts but none going on to build a
challenging score.
In reply, a 97-run opening partnership by Michael Dighton and Travis Burt
got the Tasmanians off to a flying start. Even after the openers had
departed, Daniel Marsh continued the assault; ensuring the Tigers would
polish off the target in just 34 overs to collect a bonus point. The Tigers are
flying high on top of the table, bringing hope that more silverware will find
its way to the Apple Isle this season.

Western Australia won by 47 runs
Umpires -
D Orchard, J Ward.
Player of the Match - Justin Langer (Western Australia).
Western Australia got off to a flying start against Victoria, setting
themselves up for a big total. Ronchi was out in the first over, but Langer
and Gilchrist were in devastating touch. Langer went on to make 105 off 106
balls; but after his dismissal the Warriors were unable to press home their
advantage, and an innings that looked likely to go over 300 concluded with
the visitors being dismissed for 269.
But as it turned out, that total of 269 would be more than enough. The
openers put on 68, but the Bushrangers fell behind the run rate, and needed a
partnership to stay in and build momentum. Instead, wickets were spread
across the innings, with only one Victorian batsman dismissed in single
figures but too many losing their wickets after having got their eye in.
For his century, Justin Langer was awarded Player of the Match, in what
must have been a close call over Brad Hogg, whose 10 overs took 4/37.
