Victoria cruised to victory by an innings and 81 runs over Queensland on the third day at the MCG, where Marnus Labuschagne‘s fighting 70 for the Bulls went in vain.

Queensland had resumed on 4 for 50, needing an unlikely 230 more runs to make Victoria bat again, but the early loss of Michael Neser to Scott Boland left the Bulls in even more trouble at 5 for 53.

Labuschagne found some assistance from Jack Wildermuth (25) and Chris Hartley, who finished unbeaten on 34, but it was only a matter of time before Victoria finished the job.

Queensland were bowled out for 199, with spinner Jon Holland finishing with 4 for 46 and eight wickets for the match.
