Melbourne:New South Wales routed champions Victoria for 91 to seize an innings and 88-run victory with a day to spare in their Sheffield Shield cricket match here.

Paceman Stuart Clark claimed 5-10 from 13.5 overs and former Test leg-spinner Stuart MacGill took four wickets to skittle the Victorians, during a sensational collapse of 9-34 after lunch on Thursday.

Needing 180 to make NSW bat again, Victoria lost opener Matthew Elliott (12) before lunch, but the innings lasted just 36.5 overs.

Only four batsman reached double figures, with Graeme Rummans top-scoring with 22.

MacGill took 4-41 in the second innings to give him eight wickets for the match.
