Sydney:

Simon Katich put his name alongside Don Bradman's in the Sydney Cricket Ground record books Sunday, scoring 306 in an Australian domestic first-class match.

Katich's 351-ball innings for New South Wales against Queensland was the highest individual first-class score at the Sydney Cricket Ground since Bradman's Australian record total of 452 not out against Queensland in January 1930.

Katich, who has lost his Australian national contract and has not played a Test since November 2005, shared a partnership of 334 for the fifth wicket with wicketkeeper Brad Haddin.

His innings helped New South Wales reach 601 for eight wickets declared in reply to Queensland's first innings of 467.

Katich hit 30 fours and nine sixes, giving one difficult chance to wicketkeeper Chris Hartley on 181 off Mitchell Johnson's bowling.
