Historic one-day cup knock for teen prodigy

A career-best score from middle-order batsman Matthew Short has helped Victoria to a competitive total in their must-win one-day cup match against NSW at the MCG.

Short scored at just over a run-a-ball throughout his innings of 88, as the Bushrangers posted 265 off 49.2 overs in Sunday's day-night fixture.


Rookie teenager Jake Fraser-McGurk was the only other Victorian to pass 50, as the home side relied on the two of their more-inexperienced batsmen after being reduced to 4-150.

Australian limited-overs captain Aaron Finch made just 11, while Marcus Harris scored 44 in his first innings since being dropped from the Test side.

Short seemed on track for his maiden one-day cup century but was caught in the deep attempting a third six.

The 17-year-old Fraser-McGurk continued his fine start in senior cricket with a second half-century in as many matches in the competition.

Daniel Sams starred for a Blues attack shorn of their Test stars, with the medium-pacer claiming 5-46.
