A dramatic mid-session on Day 3 saw Queensland lose eight wickets and it all started with a brilliant fielding effort from Jake Carter that saw Joe Burns fall 15 runs short of a century in his 100th Shield game. Beyond that run out, Nathan McAndrew was dominant, finishing with figures of 5 for 93. The collapse culminated in 342 and meant that Queensland’s lead was restricted to 102, but it was still in triple digits.
