STEVE STOREY, the Queensland spinner, tilted a thrilling Sheffield Shield match away from Western Australia in Brisbane yesterday with career-best figures of 5 for 55 at the Gabba. Storey helped to dismiss Western Australia for 184 in their second innings, after Queensland had managed to save the follow-on by just one run. At the close on the third day, the home side, chasing 334 for an unexpected win, were well placed on 69 for 1. The 21-year-old Damien Martyn became only the fourth Western Australian to score a century in both innings of a Shield match.
