Wicketkeeper Wade among the wickets in the Sheffield Shield... as a bowler

In his short blitz, Wade had quadrupled his career first-class wicket haul - he had taken just one wicket from 48 balls bowled prior to being chucked the ball

A bad week for Matthew Wade came to an unexpected end as the Tasmania wicketkeeper swapped the gloves for the ball and ended up with three Sheffield Shield wickets.

Wade, who was part of the losing Hobart Hurricanes side in the Big Bash trophy on Sunday and then found himself fined $6,000 for abuse of equipment after slapping the dugout with his bat in frustration at the Adelaide Oval, claimed his haul with his right-arm medium pace against Queensland.

The eigth bowler used by Tasmania captain George Bailey during Queenland's second innings at the Gabba, Wade returned figures of 3-13 from 3.4 overs as the home side were bowled out for 285.

Jimmy Peirson was caught at point, Mitchell Swepson edged behind and Brendan Doggett was trapped lbw as the 30-year-old ripped through the tail.

In his short blitz, Wade had quadrupled his career first-class wicket haul - he had taken just one wicket from 48 balls bowled prior to being chucked the ball by Bailey in Brisbane.

Tasmania, who had been bundled out for 115 in their first innings, were left needing 426 for victory.
