'What's going on?': Tasmania horror show sparks 'disastrous' record

Cricket fans were left stunned when Tasmania suffered an all-time collapse while using the Duke ball on a green Gabba deck.

At stumps, the Bulls were 2-115 with an overall lead of 37 despite the loss of Australia's reigning Test Player of the Year Labuschagne for 26 after routing the Tigers for just 78 - their third lowest Shield total.

Stubborn opener Bryce Street was unbeaten on 41 while Bulls skipper Usman Khawaja was not out 16 as Queensland comfortably survived 50 overs - almost 13 overs more than the capitulating Tigers could manage on a dramatic Friday morning.

After being sent in to bat on a classic Gabba green top, Tasmania remarkably lasted just 37.2 overs before being bowled out for their lowest total since being dismissed for 63 by Western Australia in 2017 and 76 by NSW in 1992.

Adding further insult, extras was the top scorer for the visitors with 31 after just one batsman made double figures - No.3 Charlie Wakim (11 off 50 balls).

Fans couldn’t help but laugh at the extras topping the scorecard and the abysmal batting in the return to Sheffield Shield.

Queensland's Test hopeful Michael Neser was the chief destroyer, finishing with an impressive 4-18 off 12 overs.

He was well supported by all-rounder Jack Wildermuth (3-17 off 10) while Mark Steketee (2-13) helped mop up the tail.

Signs ominous for Tasmania

The signs were ominous for Tasmania after they lost the toss and Neser trapped Jordan Silk in front with just the fourth ball of the day.

And they were in trouble at 5-47 when lunch was mercifully called after Test skipper Tim Paine was spectacularly caught for one at short mid-wicket by Street off Neser who at one stage boasted figures of 4-5.

Yet worse was to come.

At one stage Tasmania lost 3-0 and 6-24 overall before Simon Milenko (nine off 20) tried to dig in but it was to no avail as the Bulls attack ran amok.

And Queensland didn't take the foot off the throat with the bat despite losing some of their biggest names.

Test opener Joe Burns helped Queensland cruise to 0-36 at tea on day one before he was caught top edging Jackson Bird for 23.

Ex-Test quick Bird struck again when he had Steve Smith lookalike Labuschagne caught behind to reduce the hosts to 2-87.

However, the third placed Bulls were still in complete control against a second last Tigers by stumps after making light of the spicy deck with the bat.
