New South Wales 7 for 327 dec and 0 for 51 lead Queensland 6 for 330 dec (Burns 129, Khawaja 79, Labuschagne 76, Hazlewood 4-70) by 48 runsScorecard A Joe Burns hundred and 79 from Usman Khawaja gave Australias selectors significant food for thought on the second day of Queenslands Sheffield Shield match against New South Wales at the Gabba. The squad for the first Test against South Africa is due to be named on Friday and it is entirely possible there will be room for only one of Burns and Khawaja, both of whom were axed during the recent tour of Sri Lanka.Burns opening position was taken in Colombo by Shaun Marsh, who scored a century in that Test and has effectively proven his fitness - he recently suffered a hamstring injury - by making 73 in Western Australias Shield game on Tuesday. The other inclusion in Colombo was allrounder Moises Henriques, who had little impact and will not retain his place in the home summer, which opens up one batting position.Burns and Khawaja, who batted together for a 166-run partnership against New South Wales, might therefore have effectively have been competing with each other for a Test call-up. Having survived a tense evening period on the first day, they resumed on 1 for 39 and both moved to half-centuries against a high-quality attack whose every member owns a baggy green, including current Test players Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon.Eventually, it was Trent Copeland who broke the stand by inducing a top-edge from Khawaja on 79. But Burns found another capable ally and put on 109 for the third wicket with Marnus Labuschagne, who is fresh from being named Player of the Tournament in the Matador Cup, and in this innings looked set for a third first-class hundred before Khawaja declared with him on 85 and the total on 6 for 330.By that stage Burns had departed for 129, his 12th first-class hundred, and he was one of four wickets for Hazlewood, who also had Peter Forrest and Chris Hartley caught behind cheaply. Hazlewood finished with 4 for 70 and Starc, who is coming back from a nasty training injury that led to 30 stitches in his left shin, picked up 1 for 62 from his 19 overs. Lyon took 0 for 75 from 18.Queenslands declaration came immediately after they had taken a first-innings lead, and it left New South Wales having to bat 12 potentially awkward overs under lights before stumps. However, David Warner made the most of the brief period at the crease and raced to 41 from 35 deliveries, while Ed Cowan managed 10 not out. By stumps, the Blues were 0 for 51, with a 48-run advantage in the match. Charlie McAvoy Jersey.875,000, avoiding arbitration.

The sports new-look qualifying format for 2016 endured a disastrous debut at the Australian GP on Saturday with cars repeatedly not on track at the end of the three sessions - including the final minutes of Q3 when pole position should have been fought between the two quickest drivers.Team principals, including Christian Horner, Toto Wolff and Maurizio Arrivabene, and sporting directors met with FIA race director Charlie Whiting to discuss an urgent response on Sunday morning in Melbourne. Horner and Wolff confirmed on their departures from the 25-minute meeting that the team representatives had unanimously agreed to drop the system with immediate effect.Pending official ratification by the F1 Commission and World Motor Sport Council, the qualifying system will revert to the more standard three-part knockout format used between 2006 and 2015 from the Bahrain GP on April 2-3.We made a mistake and will go back for the next race, Horner told Sky Sports News HQ. We are usually a pretty dysfunctional group but there was absolute unanimity. After securing his 50th career pole position, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton revealed that his engineers had predicted that the new qualifying format woul Were tickling with the wrong areas. Its like trying to introduce a second ball on the pitch in football. The problems arent in the format of qualifying or what a grand prix is. 2017 represents a great opportunity with different regs and thats the opportunity that shoulld be used for closer racing.ddddddddddddAll the teams are looking to protect their competitiveness, but youve got to look at the bigger picture. What do the fans want? Primarily a drivers championship. Drivers racing wheel to wheel in exciting fast cars.When you try and get 11 teams to write that on a piece of paper what it should be, thats where it goes wrong. Thats where it should be taken out of the teams hands. The promoter and the governing body should say, this is what Formula 1s going to be, sign up or do something else.A shake-up of knockout qualifying was only first agreed two weeks ago and had already provoked controversy among drivers, who had argued that it would not work.Team managers also met with FIA race director Charlie Whiting to express reservations about the new-look Q3 during testing at Barcelona, but the elimination system was subsequently rubber-stamped in its original form last week.Conclusions from QualifyingMercedes boss Wolff said that while there would not be any further tinkering with the qualifying system over the rest of the season, F1 shouldnt wipe completely off the table the idea of creating a new format to spice up the show in future. Martin Brundle and David Croft give their damning verdict on the new F1 qualifying format which resulted in no action for the last four minutes The first race of the 2016 F1 season, the Australian GP, is exclusively live on Sky Sports F1. The race in Melbourne starts at 5am on Sunday morning.
