Rain washes out third morning in Shield

The Sheffield Shield clash between Queensland and Victoria in Brisbane continues to be dominated by rain with no play on the morning of day three.

The Bushrangers are 7-219 in the first innings with Test opener Marcus Harris not out on 113 and Scott Boland unbeaten on one.

Only 76 overs have been possible across the first two days due to wet weather and it looks increasingly unlikely there’ll be much play at Allan Border Field on Wednesday with forecasts predicting between 10-20mm of rainfall.

If the game ends in a draw it will be Victoria’s fifth from six Shield matches this summer.

The forecast is also gloomy for Thursday’s final day, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting between 3-8mm of rain in Brisbane.

In other news, Queensland’s upcoming Shield clash with South Australia from March 23 to 26 has been moved to Allan Border Field from Ian Healy Oval.

The one-day cup match between the Bulls and Redbacks on March 28 is unaffected by the change.
