Victoria’s batsman Matthew Short fought unbeaten 80 on a rain-punctuated day dominated by the New South Wales bowlers at Bankstown Oval
Players suffered several interruptions as the rain came and went bowling on a regular basis in Sydney with only 61 overs, but Short stayed firm to lead Victoria to stumps that kicked in at 2 for 16

Harry Conway took three doors to the blues when the sailors caused trouble on a dark and gloomy day Pat Cummins and Trent Copeland made the first breakthroughs before Conway took the gates from Marcus Harris, Jake Fraser-McGurk and Seb Gotch, to leave Victoria at 5 for 94

Conway benefited from some loose shots Harris faced 29 balls with 70 balls before cutting a hook to the gully while Fraser-McGurk hit a half-tracker straight to the point

Short remained patient, absorbing 164 balls, and hitting 10 boundaries on a surface that was difficult to score on. Late in the day, he formed a useful partnership with Will Sutherland to frustrate the Blues and give them the opportunity refuse to finish the innings before the end of 7pm
