Tipped to replace Matthew Wade in next week's Ashes opener, Nevill was dismissed for 17 as the ladder-leading Blues moved to 6-192 at lunch on day two, holding a nine-run first-innings lead.


Nevill hit three fours in his 22-ball knock at Allan Border Field before he was smartly caught in the slips by Usman Khawaja off leg-spinner Mitch Swepson (1-32) in the second last over of the morning session.

Blues No.6 Dan Hughes -- considered a potential Ashes bolter -- was unbeaten on 42.

Bulls allrounder Jack Wildermuth took 2-29.

Other wickets to fall in Tuesday's first session were Kurtis Patterson for 12 and Moises Henriques (36).

NSW resumed on Tuesday at 3-83 in reply to the Bulls' 183 first innings that was dominated by Khawaja's 78 not out.
