Queensland Bulls paceman Michael Neser has further enhanced his bid for a Test debut with a four-wicket haul for Australia A against the England Lions at Ian Healy Oval in Brisbane.
In reply to the Australians’ first-innings total of 213 at Ian Healy Oval, the Lions were in deep trouble at 8-80 at lunch on day two.
Already in trouble at 3-13 at the start of the morning, the Lions continued to struggle against an impressive Australia A bowling attack.
Test squad member Neser was the pick of the bowlers.
Having claimed with scalp of Lions captain Alex Lees the day before, Neser added to his wicket tally with the dismissals of James Bracey (5), Harry Brook (17) and Ben Foakes (12).
At lunch, he had the figures of 4-21 off 12,5 overs.
Neser was ably supported, with fellow Test aspirants Mitch Marsh (1-15) and Mitch Swepson (1-11) also taking wickets on Friday morning.
