Ford Ranger Cup

New South Wales v Queensland

New South Wales won by 6 runs

Good afternoon and welcome to the SCG for this Ford Ranger Cup clash betweeen NSW and Queensland. It is a big match for both sides with the Blues needing to win to stay alive in the competition with just two games to go, whilst a Bulls win will ensure they will play in the final with a chance to defend their title. There has been an inch of rain overnight in Sydney and some rain this morning. But at present the sun has broken through and it is quite humid. The wicket has live grass on it. The FRC wickets at the SCG this season have been quite friendly for the bowlers.

Simon Katich has won the toss and NSW will bat first. David Warner has been left out of the Blues line-up and Ben Rohrer returns. Warner and Steve Smith have been left out due to Australian selection in Friday's Internation T20. Steve O'Keefe comes in, Josh Hazlewood returns from his MOTM performance in the U19 World Cup final for Australia.

For Queensland, Chris Lynn makes his FRC debut whilst Ryan Harris is away on International duties and Ben Laughlin returns.
