The left-arm spinner came into the match with just nine first-class wickets
Queensland 6 for 487 dec (Labuschagne 136, Renshaw 120*, Khawaja 119) and 1 for 132 dec (Labuschagne 60*) beat Tasmania 182 (Kuhnemann 5-60) and 341 (Jewell 90, Kuhnemann 5-107) by 96 runs
Kuhnemann, who before this match had just nine first-class wickets, gave Queensland an early lift when he removed Charlie Wakim. When Marnus Labuschagne had an lbw appeal upheld against Caleb Jewell to remove the opener for 90 – much to Labuschagne’s delight – Tasmania were 4 for 173 but they did not give in without a fight.
Jake Doran, who took a nasty blow on the helmet when he was trying to avoid a short delivery, and Beau Webster added 65 before Kuhnemann worked his way through the middle order. Doran top-edged to short fine leg, Webster and Lawrence Neil-Smith were both lbw playing across full deliveries and Tom Andrews chipped tamely to mid-on.
When Gabe Bell was caught behind Queensland were just a wicket away but that final blow took some time to come as the last-wicket pair of Jarrod Freeman and Riley Meredith added 64 to bring the required runs below 100.
However, before it got into nervy territory debutant Connor Sully, who had claimed a wicket with his first delivery on the second day, wrapped up the match when Meredith pulled into the leg side.
It was a notable result for Queensland who were without Michael Neser, Mark Steketee, Mitchell Swepson, Xavier Bartlett and Billy Stanlake in their bowling attack.
